When someone pointed out that the desk that he was sitting at once belonged to Woodrow Wilson, who was racist, - which is bad - he gets a new desk that has nothing to do with Wilson - which is also bad.  Can't win for losing, apparently.

IMO, he was told that something had connections to someone who was racist and he made a change to break that connection.  Yes, it can be seen as pandering, but if you want changes to happen and someone is clueless, education is necessary and then they can make a change.  So good for him for getting rid of the desk.  Hopefully it went into storage so it can go into a museum.

People are stupid and think they are solving problems

If erasing lends purpose to an otherwise purposeless existence, where's the harm?


That makes sens........waitaminute....are you a desk salesman?

1funguy: duke3522: Wilson was the worst POTUS in history! Prove me wrong.

Trump.
You're wrong.

Done.


Literally not even the worst president of the last two decades. We recently had a guy who started a war, wasted a trillion dollars, and actually killed hundreds of thousands of people for no reason. And drove the economy into a depression. Remember him?

This recency chauvinism constantly has people dramatizing whoever is in the White House at the moment. Writing mean tweets doesn't even rank on the leaderboard of horrible shiat presidents have done.

Trump is present. I said history.

And since Wilson was one of the main authors of The Lost Cause myth, I can make a case that the causes of this nightmare can be traced right back to Wilson.

Anyone want to try again?


Is not yesterday yet relegated to the pages of history?
The 41 month prior?

IMHO, the long term effect of the trump presidency shall eclipse Wilson, W, RayGun, and Nixon.
