Donald Trump, Champion of Human Rights

An hour or so ago on Good Morning America, Donald Trump was asked about his commitment to racial equality. He responded: “I mean, there’s nobody that’s done so much for equality as I have.”

My first thought when I read that was something like this:

But then I heard him make his case. Trump explained:

I built the Mar-a-Lago club. Totally open to everybody. A club that frankly set a new standard — a new standard in clubs and a new standard in Palm Beach. And I’ve gotten great credit for it. That is totally open to everybody.

Nailed it.

To paraphrase Vizzini from The Princess Bride: Jesus? Lincoln? King? Losers. I built an exclusive club in Florida. Nobody does equality like Trump!

This guy won’t embarrass you as president. Not at all.
