What in the world were you thinking? Why would you give Ronna McDaniel a platform particularly during Black History Month? Her presumption is that Blacks intentionally omit the truth to present a limited view of black history that ignores the contribution of the party of Lincoln.

McDaniel and alum want to have it both ways: to promote a lie that Trump won the last presidential election, to fail to convict a former president who incited an insurrection that nearly cost the lives of elected representatives who stood up to Trump, but want to be known as the party of Lincoln.

They are far, far away from that history and only mention President Lincoln’s name when they want to lay claim to a morality that is a part of their very distant past.
