The president addressed reporters during the Martin Luther King Jr. Day visit
but did not mention the civil rights icon.

President Donald Trump on Monday made an unannounced trip to the Martin Luther
King Jr. Memorial in Washington. The president did not mention the civil rights
icon during the visit, which ended about two minutes after he arrived.

“Good morning, everybody,” Trump told reporters after laying a wreath in front
of the monument. “It’s a great day. It’s a beautiful day. And thank you for
being here. Appreciate it.”

Vice President Mike Pence tagged along for the surprise trip. Neither Trump nor
Pence had public events listed on their schedules for Monday, the second Martin
Luther King Jr. Day observed since Trump took office in January 2017.

Trump faced scrutiny last year when he did not attend a public event on Martin
Luther King Jr. Day. Instead, he visited one of his golf clubs in Florida. He
remained in Washington on Monday as the ongoing partial government shutdown
entered its 31st day.

Trump’s quick trip to the memorial on Monday offered a stark contrast with past
presidents, such as Barack Obama and George W. Bush, who spent MLK Day
volunteering or visiting memorials in the civil rights icon’s honor during their
presidencies.

Around midmorning Monday, Trump tweeted a link to a proclamation he signed last
week declaring Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

“Today we celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. for standing up for the
self-evident truth Americans hold so dear, that no matter what the color of our
skin or the place of our birth, we are all created equal by God,” the president
tweeted.

He saw he was getting roasted (at least on CNN and MSNBC) for "no
activities planned for MLK Day."

I wonder if he ever put the MLK bust back into the Oval Office after having
removed it in January 2017?

If he'd stayed any longer, the TDS crowd would accuse him of
grandstanding. If he said MLK's name, they'd shriek about cultural
appropriation or some such SJW drivel.

With that twist of logic, your new pretzel shape allows you to suck your own
dick and not just Trumps.
