Wow. Only a whole year for the faux outrage to erupt. The Trump hive mind has spoken, so this won’t change anything…
Here’s the video from the rally (part is at 35:30).
Here is the transcript.
Now, I got to tell you, I’m from Delaware. Delaware State University. I have to tell you, I always tell the truth, you’re the second best. Delaware State University’s the best [inaudible 00:01:17]. Because they’re the ones that always [inaudible 00:01:23] brought me to the dance, reverend. They’re the ones. That’s where I got started. That’s where I got … Look, I’m very proud to support our HBCUs and minority serving institutions. Now as president, everybody kind of forgets now because you become so significant.
I understand his comments as “being from” and “got started” in the state of Delaware. That’s where Delaware State University is, and explains why he jokingly says Texas Southern University is the “second best” HBCU.
He never said he “got started out of an HBCU, Delaware State,” as was quoted in the OP article. Search the transcript, watch the video. Find that line. Prove me wrong.
He does have an honorary degree, gave two commencement addresses and has two staff members from Delaware State on his campaign. I know that won’t ease the froth.
Where was I excusing Biden? I gave a link to a speech which was incorrect and I admitted it. I did say he had corrected himself in the later speech which was six months ago. I didn’t excuse him for withdrawing in the late 80’s. I will be less critical on the person who admits his lies and withdraws, however.
I have little doubt Trump will be under investigation and/or prison for the rest of his life. The presidency first put a spotlight on his likely transgressions and his actions as president to shield himself have only focused that spotlight. Once the legal shackles of the presidency have been removed, he will be in a bad place. How bad? I have no idea.
