“a good bed to die in,” Trump said approvingly.

Then by all means hop in you fat fucking waste of space

Send him a tweet, I’m sure he’d be happy to change the name if only he weren’t dead, just like the other dead people you like to make comments about.
Oh, and don’t worry, even without your name everywhere, no one will forget you in the near future.

What Dotard doesn’t realize is that if you do a good job, people name things after you.
And since Mt. Vernon was probably built with slave labor, it would be difficult to spend less on the labor to build it.

A man who has the Capitol of the country, a whole state, cities & towns named after him needs to put his name on a house in Virginia to be remembered.

Considering Trump tells a lot of contractors to go to hell on ever getting paid for their work, I’d say he pays about the same rate as many slaveholders did when building something.

The telling line is that he could have built it cheaper. Yeah, we know what a tight wad you are.

“Bradburn reportedly later said that the Macrons knew much more about American history than Trump did, and that he struggled to maintain the American President’s interest for the 45-minute tour.”

Not that they seemed to know more … they did know more (and none of us are surprised). And Trump, with an opportunity to learn a bit or to just appear interested, talked about his favorite subject, the only subject … himself (and none of us are surprised).

Can we impeach the motherfucker now?

Somehow the value of George Washington’s purposeful modesty is lost on Trump;

Or, said another way:

Trump craps all over founding father of America. His supporters cheer and wave russian flags. Fox news agrees, General washington “not smart.”

I move that we brand the Sixth Mass Extinction as “The Trump Extinction,” although there won’t be anyone around to remember it.

Prisons and toxic waste treatment centers take note. Trump wants his name used.

No, see, if people want to remember you they put your name on stuff.

If they start taking your name off of things, that means people want to forget they ever heard of you.

Also, hundreds of schools - elementary schools, junior highs, high schools, universities… Named after him by others.

Although, there was Trump University. Not a university, not really even a school of any kind … a scam. (I bet Washington never had to pay out $25 million for corrupt grifting).
