Don Lemon: trump needs an elementary education

The Daily Beast reports:

“This is a sad moment for the country,” Lemon said. “I think it was an awful moment for the person who is supposed to represent the highest office of the land. There, today, you saw the real Donald Trump proving all of his critics right in that moment.” 
“There is a difference between the two groups,” Lemon added. “One is a Nazi, white supremacist group. What they want to do is extinguish people that look like me and you, Wolf, Jewish people, black people, even women. They don't think we are equal to them. The other is a protest group, protesting a political and racist movement.” 
Lemon said Trump “doesn't seem to be very aware of the history of this country,” reminding the president that these problems began with slavery. “People who look like me did not come over on the Nina, the Pinta, or the Santa Maria. And those people who were there want to keep people like me enslaved.”

It's not a problem of ignorance, although tRump is profoundly ignorant of pretty much everything. His father marched with the KKK, he's been a racist his whole life. He had to settle suits for refusing to rent to black tenants. There's no chapter of history one could teach him that would make him change his racist ways.
