As Twitchy reported, President Trump spoke at the National Archives Museum Thursday, Constitution Day, and upset many liberal journalists by taking a swipe at the New York Times’ discredited 1619 Project and announcing the creation of a 1776 Commission to reintroduce patriotism into education in place of critical race theory. It was an attempt to restore unity, but unity under the Trump administration is fascism to these people.
Add CNN’s Jim Acosta to the outraged. He doesn’t seem to understand that President Trump is campaigning for reelection while still serving as president and thought that Trump speaking at the National Archives turned it into “another campaign prop.”
Trump turning National Archives into another campaign prop, saying "the left has warped, distorted and defiled the American story with deceptions, falsehoods and lies."

He did indeed say that:
The left has warped, distorted, and defiled the American story with deceptions, falsehoods, and lies. There is no better example than the New York Times’ totally discredited 1619 Project. This project rewrites American history to teach our children that we were founded on the principle of oppression, not freedom.
Nothing could be further from the truth. America’s founding set in motion the unstoppable chain of events that abolished slavery, secured civil rights, defeated communism and fascism, and built the most fair, equal, and prosperous nation in human history.
Was Trump supposed to deliver his remarks at some drive-in town hall in Scranton? But as to the president’s remarks about the Left:

President Trump is exactly right when he says "the left has warped, distorted and defiled the American story with deceptions, falsehoods and lies." You are part of the distorted lie. You are basically a traitor to the nation.

The 1619 project has shoddy historiography. That has been discussed at length. This isn’t news.

You’ve got to hand it to DJT. He caused the media to truly lay themselves bare. That anyone could argue impartiality is hyper-laughable at this point.

He is correct. Thank you @realDonaldTrump for standing up for our country and calling out the leftist lies. Their hatred for our country is on full display for all to see at long last. #PatriotsUnited

Are you afraid people are going to start reading and researching that database or something?
He's not wrong. There's a great deal of misrepresented history and concepts. History is often shown as 2 dimensional at best, many either clearly not versed in or blatantly distorting it.

The Marxist and anarchist rioters shielded by the Democrats would happily burn down the National Archives if they could to cleanse it of all those white supremacist documents written by white men it holds. They wanted to topple the Emancipation Memorial in the name of Black Lives Matter — that’s where their minds are.
