No I don’t mean Gov. Moonbeam being $12B in debt and crying for Federal money to fix the infrastructure he’s ignored to kiss the ass of Illegals…
Robert Gehl reports that for being America’s first black president, there’s quite a lot that Barack Obama simply didn’t do that would help many African Americans.
He didn’t improving working conditions, he didn’t tackle crime in America’s biggest cities, and he almost completely ignored one the most important historical legacies of black culture in America.
Well, Donald Trump is trying to change that. He is drafting an executive order expected to help struggling Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU).
These schools have been a cornerstone in raising education standards and providing quality post-secondary education for thousands of black students. But due to competition, poor management, and a lack of endowments, many of these schools have had to close.
When Trump was in a meeting called by Omarosa Manigault, one of his advisors, he expressed disappointment that HBCUs were suffering so much. Trump was also moved at how poorly HBCUs fared under the Obama Administration. This piqued his interest, the Root reports, when a consultant told him “he could go down as one of the greatest presidents in modern history, and that his support of HBCUs was badly needed.”
Trump asked what he needed to do, and Omarosa —a Howard alum—reportedly said that she was working on an executive order, ostensibly to come out during Black History Month.
Though details are scarce, sources who speculate that the White House Initiative on HBCUs, housed under the Education Department under Obama, might be moved to be run out of the White House.
Omarosa, who had no comment on the report, did say, “I can, however, reinforce the president’s commitment to support historically black colleges and universities, as well as school choice, as he stated throughout the campaign.”
Barack Obama gave a commencement speech back in May at Howard University, considered the top black college in the country. The day before his speech, Johnny C. Taylor Jr., president of the Thurgood Marshall College Fund, an organization that advocates for HBCUs, said that Obama gets failing marks from most of the leaders of the country’s 100-plus institutions.
“Giving a speech at the end of an eight-year term during [which] the schools were permanently damaged doesn’t make up for it,” he said.
Maybe President Trump can fix that.
But don’t expect the Democrats or The Teacher’s Unions to do anything but hinder it.
Head explodes from the Doublethink overload and the Thoughtcrime Alerts.
The dress was designed by Andre Soriano, a Filipino immigrant who came to our shores in search of the American dream.
“I’ve never been in the political area,” Soriano told The Hollywood Reporter. “However, it’s just so crazy that people are getting beat up because they voted for Trump.”
Mr. Soriano was inspired to create his masterpiece after watching the “Nasty Woman” protest in Washington, D.C.
“I am an American,” he told THR. “I moved here from the Philippines and I highly believed in the trueness of what this country can bring. It’s about bringing people together, that’s the message.”
It’s worth repeating that Mr. Soriano came to America legally.
Unfortunately, the red, white and blue dress is not available at Nordstrom’s, Sears or TJ Maxx. Sorry, fashionistas.
Liberals suffered a near melt-down on social media. Much of the vitriol is simply too vile to share in a family-friendly column.
I reached out to the Centers for Disease Control but they did not have any data on how many Grammy watch parties were ruined by triggered liberals.
Likewise, I cannot confirm reports that Staples Center set up emergency safe spaces for overly-sensitive, auto-tuned celebrities.
I will say this about Miss Villa – she’s got moxie – either that or she’s slap crazy.
Wearing a Donald Trump dress at the Grammys? Sweet mercy, America. That’s like showing up at a PETA protest eating a cheeseburger. (Todd Starnes)
