Trump Just Tried To Defend His Andrew Jackson Remark And Humiliated Himself

In an interview with the Washington Examiner, Trump strangely claimed that Andrew Jackson “was really angry that he saw what was happening in regard to the Civil War.” Jackson died in 1845, 16 years before the Civil War even began.

Instead of admitting fault, though, Trump dug in his heels.

Trump, obviously caught by his anachronistic version of American history, gave as ignorant an excuse as expected by the President who has never once claimed to be wrong — amid a slew of factual inaccuracies, no less. When PolitiFact rated all of Trump’s statements, a remarkable 70% of what he said was “mostly false, false, or pants on fire.”

To be clear, with his tweet, Trump is insinuating that an 78-year-old ex-President could have stopped a war that he somehow saw coming 16 years in advance. And that he was angry about it.

If only Trump realized that there could be grace in admitting defeat, he would not embarrass himself so thoroughly jumping through hoops to try to be right.

Add your name to millions demanding Congress take action on the President’s crimes. IMPEACH TRUMP & PENCE!
