Trump Celebrates Columbus Day: White Pride And A Merch Sale

We all expected that this first Columbus Day would be a reversal of what Barack Obama had done, because that is literally the only reason Donald Trump shows up to "work" each day.

So no mention of native Americans or indigenous peoples, but please, let's praise the skilled navigator who arrived...wait, what's this? A Columbus Day Merch Sale at Trumpco?

Buy more MAGA crap because if you don't, "Leftists will try to erase America's past."

Calling confederates slave-defending white supremacists isn't an erasure, Donald. It's the opposite of that.

You gotta love calling it a "legendary voyage to America" as if it's a travel agent advertisement. Some recent marketing graduate has a real sweet gig over at the MAGA store.
