Historian Blasts Trump Over Confederate Statues In Hilarious Twitter Rant

By Mark Pygas

Donald Trump responded to the events in Charlottesville on Thursday on Twitter, calling the removal of Confederate monuments by several local governments "foolish," and once again comparing Confederate general Robert E Lee to the likes of George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. He conveniently left out the fact that Robert E. Lee supported a bunch of traitors and actively led armies to kill soldiers who were battling to keep the "United" part of the "United States" intact. So yeah, maybe Lee is a teensy, tiny bit different than historical figures like Washington and Jefferson.
