Do you ever feel we, as a website, spend too much time mocking and ridiculing stupid accounts on Twitter who have it coming?
Yeah, we don’t either.
Not entirely sure what Ford’s Theatre thought would happen when they went after Abe Lincoln but here we are.
Our only guess is they WEREN’T really thinking when they sent this tweet going after Lincoln.
Take a look.
Do you ever feel we, as a nation, put Abraham Lincoln “on a pedestal”?
What do you think might be a more useful, more complex, or more realistic way to think about or memorialize the 16th president?

Really Ford’s Theatre? REALLY?!
I mean, you're 100% right. There's no hook to gender expression or LatinX issues.
This gotta come down.

We’re shocked it hasn’t come down yet.
“Ford Theatre attacks Lincoln” is the Twitter content I came here for

Nothing but the best (or worst) from Twitter these days.
I mean… you already put him on a balcony. Leave the guy alone.

we should build a temple to Lincoln on the National Mall

Who thought this would be a good tweet?

Probably someone with a degree in gender studies.
More books have been written about Lincoln, examining him from every conceivable angle, than any other president.
So go on; tell us what might be a more useful, more complex, or more realistic way to think about him.

Is a descendant of John Wilkes Booth running this account or what?

I’d just like to say that Ford’s theater did enough to Abe Lincoln

Lmao. I like getting high too.

The author of this Tweet should read a few of those books on Lincoln stacked up to the ceiling in the Visitor's Center for Ford's Theater.

Put the Twitter down and take a break, John Wilkes.

And it just keeps getting worse.
Any day now, SMOD.
