It’s the commemoration of Dr. Martin Luther King’s birthday tomorrow. A day for voluntarily providing some kind of service in King’s memory. Here’s a link to the national site where you can find a place to volunteer or record what your group did.
In my small locale, there’s not many opportunities for such service. So next year, I’ll have to try harder and sooner to not let the day go by. I hope you will find something you can do.
While I should stop there I can’t. With the inauguration of someone who shares none of the values nor the accomplishments of King coming next Friday, I must continue. To be fair, Donald Trump did PLAN on visiting the Smithsonian African-American History Museum tomorrow. But he had to cancel due to “scheduling conflicts.”
So herewith, MORE FAKE NEWS! Ending with what he will be doing instead of visiting the Smithsonian.
Trump considered Attorney General nominee Jefferson Beauregard Session’s suggestion to volunteer at the Museum of the War of Northern Aggression in Alabama. He ultimately declined due to travel time issues.
Trump SERIOUSLY considered serving food in Little Odessa—Brighton Beach. Apparently he misunderstood the relationship of the Russian emigres there with Vladimir Putin and the oligarchs back home. Vlad nixed that idea after Donald mentioned it to him.
Finally, the right place dawned on him, a cat rescue shelter in Tribeca. Trump tweeted this about his choice:
I just love pussies, especially grabbing and holding them. Oh WHAT A FEELING!
