Poet slams Donald: who the f**k taught you history?

Poet slams Donald: who the f**k taught you history?

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is not known to speak based on facts and truths. He uses the well-known propaganda technique of repeating lies, like many did before him (and many will do in the future). Such as the ongoing discriminatory rhetoric about Mexicans immigrants:

When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists.

It is the rhetoric and the lies that made slam poet Mercedez Holtry angry, very angry. She gave the candidate a 3-minute lesson in history:

Your campaign slogan, ‘Let’s Make America Great Again,’ with the unsaid words ‘…by kicking out all the brown people,’ disguised and attached to the end of that statement, aka let’s keep America American. Let’s keep America white. Let’s keep America inclusive by outcasting people who were here before you. What I wanna know is who the fuck taught you history, Donald?

Mercedez Holtry: “I wrote this poem with anger in my heart and my people’s pride stirring fire in my blood.”

Rage converting into creativity, I love it. If this was a 1 on 1 poetry slam with Trump than the result was a knock out won by the poet. “Mister business man, We’re Here to Stay.”
