In a recent opinion piece, Columbia professor John H. McWhorter complains that Trump “released a tweet referring to ‘forrest fires’” — that is, FORREST with two R's and not one — “twice, as if these fires were set by Mr. Gump."

Lesson of the day…when bullshit is asserted…do not procrastinate but instead promptly call bullshit.

Contrary to conventional wisdom….BULLSHIT is not benign.

Too funny… Willing to bet that John McWhorter is an “Affirmative Action” hire… What a dumb ass… Ebonics was put to rest a long time ago… I guess poor Johnny did not get the Memo?

Hope he also bores down on Cortez’s using “Valley speak” LIKE twice in once sentence…

What are these tweets? Are they with reference to the actual forest fires that have taken place? If not, then President Trump could be comparing [whatever] to Nathan Bedford Forrest of the KKK. Who knows?
