President Trump Decided To Revise The Name Of Black History Month - Here It Is

President Donald Trump decided to ring off Black History Month at the White House on February 1, and invited a group of his African-American Supporters to a breakfast. Instead of making the event about black people, Trump turned it around and made it about himself.

The event has been renamed by the media to be “African American History Month Listening Session." The event, which was attended by Department of Housing and Urban Development leader nominee Ben Carson, was co-opted by the president so he could spend more time complaining about the media's biased reporting against him and false accusations about him removing the Martin Luther King Jr. bust from the Oval Office.

The entire event came off as little more than an ego-booster for the president, as rather than listening to his guests about what people of color need in their communities, he talked.

"We're going to need better schools, and we need them soon. We need more jobs, we need better wages — a lot better wages. We're going to work very hard on the inner city," said the president. "We need safer communities, and we're going to do that with law enforcement. We're going to make it safe."

The president also boasted about his African-American support during the campaign. "This is a group that's been so special to me. You really helped me a lot. If you remember, I wasn't going to do well with the African American community, and after they heard me speaking and talking about the inner city and lots of other things, we ended up getting — I won't go into details, but we ended up getting substantially more than other candidates who had run in the past years. And now, we're going to take that to new levels."

The president then allowed the discussion to go around the room, but instead of bringing up topics, his black supporters simply showered him with love, praise and reassurance.

"We love the Lord, we love our new President, and we are praying for our President on a regular basis," said Pastor Belinda Scott.
