The yakubian-in-chief, Donald Trump, went full white mediocrity at a campaign rally Friday night in Ohio. While speaking to the crowd, The Don praised Confederate leader Robert E. Lee, as “a great general” and “incredible”, in his Civil War monologue.
Two things, 1) Robert E. Lee was fighting to keep Blacks enslaved, 2) Lee lost.

Rev. Robert Lee IV, collateral ancestor of Robert E. Lee (I just learned that collateral ancestor is a thing), took to his social media to denounce the words of the president, in regards to his ancestor.

Must be rough being named Robert Lee and not a racist.
