Lincoln quote about donald trump


#1

did you folks know that abraham lincoln was one of the first republican politicians who criticized donald trump? i found the following quote from lincoln about trump this weekend–

“If a man will stand up and assert, and repeat and reassert, that two and two do not make four, I know nothing in the power of argument that can stop him. I think I can answer the Judge so long as he sticks to the premises; but when he flies from them, I cannot work any argument into the consistency of a mental gag and actually close his mouth with it.”

what a prescient individual lincoln was.

Mencken was even more prescient.

On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.
