(Political Satire, Still Legal in USA) (WASHINGTON–Jan 16, 2017) President-elect Donald Trump cancelled his visit to the African American History Museum because he was too busy.

Instead, he spent this Martin Luther King Day reflecting on his life’s work as a Civil Rights leader.

“I was born a sharecropper’s son, ” Mr. Trump, in a reflective mood, told The Failing Times.  

“When I was a young man, I became a Freedom Rider during the Civil Rights movement, where I was beaten multiple times. In Montgomery I was beaten and left lying unconscious in a bus station. I was personally recruited by Dr. King, and worked side by side with him. I marched over that bridge in Selma. I sat at lunch counters until I was arrested.”

When The Failing Times challenged Mr. Trump’s version of his past, pointing out that it sounded suspiciously like the life of Civil Rights icon and hero Congressman John Lewis, whom Mr. Trump recently called “all talk,” Mr Trump immediately asked us to leave.

“What do you know,” Mr. Trump said. “You print fake news.”
