Nincompoops Spouting Nincompoopery!!

Good Grief!  I want to scream.

I want to curse.

But I hold back my asteri*ks to keep my sanity, will those around me lose theirs (sanity, not their asterisks).

Michelle Obama gave another beautiful speech on Monday in honor of Hillary Clinton.  You remember Michelle, she wrote the best parts of Melania Trumps speech?

Anyway, in part of her speech on Monday she said “I wake up every morning in a house that was built by slaves," drawing criticism from onlookers arguing that slaves did not play a substantial role in building the White House, or that the slaves who built the White House were paid.

But it has been fact checked and - indeed - slaves were part of the crew that built the white house and they were not paid (the definition of slavery - FYI). (link from NY Daily News)

But Bill O'Reily, in an unhinged moment, "refuted" the First Lady by saying that, sure they were slaves, but there were weld fed and had lodgings provided.

Hummmm  Okay....  You see Bill, masters "fed their slaves well" so they worked hard.  And the slave masters "provided" housing so that the slaves didn't run away.  You dumb astri*ks.

Do you supposed he had a moment of temporary deafness and was unable to hear his own voice? I mean, what other explanation could there possibly be? What educated (supposedly), thoughtful person could possibly think that it was 1. O.K. to say even if you had the misfortune to think it? 2. Not immediately horrified when he realized he uttered it out loud on live TV? Oh,(gigantic sigh), will we ever get past all this evil nonsense? This makes my stomach hurt.
