MLK Day Trump Style

Trump arrived at his Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach around 9 a.m. Monday, the White House press pool reported. His next public event was scheduled for 4:20 p.m., when he and first lady Melania Trump would depart Palm Beach International Airport for Washington.

Which gave him time to return to Twitter and remind us why we are all talking about what a racist he is (or may be) today, and now Sen. Dick Durbin is the Democratic party:

Yeah, about that:

But, in what appeared to be a direct jab at Sens. Tom Cotton and David Perdue, Graham said, "My memory hasn't evolved. I know what was said and I know what I said." Sen. Tim Scott, R-North Charleston, said Friday that Graham told him media reports of what Trump said were “basically accurate." 
And besides:

Lovely way to spend the day, Mr. President.

The dispute seems to have moved on to whether Trump said "shithole" or "shithouse" as Cotton and Perdue claim in their recovered memories to deny the leaker's original account.

By the way, Sen Durbin was not the original leaker. He simply confirmed the leaker's account. Why Perdue and Cotton want to continue to split the hair between "shithole" and "shit house" is a mystery. Is one less offensive than the other?

PS: Trump is unfit to speak the name of Martin Luther King, Jr. The best thing he could have done is to keep to his golf and keep his mouth shut.
