The Donald Is Going To Need Some Cold Water For ‘The Burn’ Ken Burns Just Gave Him

Documentary filmmaker Ken Burns, known for his history documentaries, spent ten-minutes of his Stanford commencement address talking about the orange tumor we are dealing with in this country. Naturally, I’m talking about Donald Trump.

This is what Burns had to say about his work:

“For nearly forty years now, I have diligently practiced and rigorously maintained a conscious neutrality in my work, avoiding the advocacy of many of my colleagues, trying to speak to all of my fellow citizens.”

Burns noted that he strives for “conscious neutrality” in his work. Next, he lit into The Donald and it was epic:

“There comes a time when I and you can no longer remain neutral, silent — we must speak up and speak out. For 216 years, our elections — though bitterly contested — have featured the philosophies and characters of candidates who were clearly qualified.”

“That is not the case this year.”

He issued some amazingly awesome burns without even mentioning his name:

“He is an insult to our history. Do not be deceived by his momentary good behavior. It is only a spoiled, misbehaving child hoping somehow to still have dessert.”

The best one of the speech was this:

“Asking this man to assume the highest office in the land would be like asking a newly minted car driver to fly a 747.”

Just in case you didn’t realize how awful Donald Trump is, check this out. He plagiarized a tweet from one of his own advisors after the Orlando shooting:

In case that didn’t turn your stomach enough, Donald Trump was compared to Muhammad Ali this week when the boxing legend passed away. A Fox News contributor, Cal Thomas had this to say about the Republican front-runner:

“Trump doesn’t take that lying down. I compared him in some ways to a less artful Muhammad Ali. He floats like a butterfly and stings like a whole hornet’s nest, frankly.”

He says that the orange wonder is “changing.” Yeah, right.

Everyone fight against Trump!
