McSweeney's published Trump's Black History Month speech as a humor column

Albany County Executive Dan Mc Coy says it's important to remember our history

It's Black History Month, so it's time for a history quiz. Meyers and one of the show's writers, Amber Ruffin, were on top of Trump's Black History Month speech.

I am very proud now that we have a museum, National Mall, where people can learn about Reverend King, so many other things, Frederick Doug - Douglass is an example of somebody who's done an fantastic job that is being recognized more and more, I notice.

The most prominent black American of the 19th century, Douglass was a renowned speaker here and in Britain.

"I think he wants to highlight the contributions he has made", Spicer said.

Douglass, in fact, died in 1895, and his autobiography, A Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, is a pretty common fixture in K-12 school curriculum.

Flanked by black staff and supporters in the White House's Roosevelt Room, Trump began promisingly, noting the contribution of African Americans and their "unimaginable sacrifice".


"Based on what Betsy said about him, we could really use Fred's energy around here", Trump said.

I am very proud now that we have a museum on the National Mall where people can learn about Reverend King, so many other things.

Aganaba says telling black stories is important, especially in a city like Vancouver that has a smaller black community than many large North American cities.

Does it... nearly... sound like the President of the United States doesn't know who Frederick Douglass is?

Many Americans remain hopeful that Trump will bring positive changes. "This is why the press is failing and it's failing very, very badly". We have Lincoln, and we have Jefferson, and we have Dr. Martin Luther King.

After Trump met with African American leaders, a senior administration official tells TMZ, Donald was convinced that the term "black" is outdated, and the more appropriate way to refer to the community is "African American".
