Media firefighters must wake up every day and ask themselves, “How can we royally blow it today?” Evidently MSNBC settled on inviting Jon Meacham to weigh in on Donald Trump’s problematic tweets about the Freshmen Dem Girl Squad.

Have you ladies ever heard of Woodrow Wilson?

Guess he’s never studied Woodrow Wilson? Or LBJ

This is an LBJ quote reported by Doris Kearns Goodwin. Keep in mind when you toss around "most racist president ever." pic.twitter.com/iFFj2kU6at

And then we have Woodrow Wilson, who screened "Birth Of A Nation" at the White House:https://t.co/136nV8aLyh

Woodrow Wilson re-introduced segregation in govt, and FDR put Japanese Americans in camps.
But do go on! https://t.co/0o2IKOgAV6

Hey remember when Woodrow Wilson literally segregated federal workers? Or Thomas Jefferson considered blacks “as incapable as children” and could not exist in the same country as whites? Or how about Andrew “Indian Killer” Jackson? https://t.co/x38vQYdMUX

Reminder: Jon Meacham is a presidential historian. It’s his job to know presidential history.
Presidential historian who is apparently unaware of a great deal of presidential history.

That's a completely asinine and moronic statement. There were US Presidents that were slave owners.

Why can't he criticize Trump's comments without saying something so obviously dumb? Trump's comments were bad, but where they more racist than owning slaves? https://t.co/NnLTtIuqwA

Just don’t call Jon Meacham fake news.
Presidential historian is full of crap. Just tossed his credibility in the trash.
