It doesn’t take much intelligence or common sense to realize that taking a stance against renaming American military bases that honor Confederate generals in the middle of the largest protests against racism and police brutality in United States history might be — at best — bad timing and — even worse — as foolishly insensitive and counterproductive to quelling racial tensions.

Trump was reacting to a suggestion to rename these “Legendary Military Bases” to eliminate their association with traitorous slavery-protecting generals that has been circulating in the military recently as our nation confronts the unhealed wounds of systemic racism hiding in plain sight.

Trump’s tweets come two days after Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy and Defense Secretary Mark Esper said that they were “open” to renaming the bases.

Responses to the president’s tweet explained exactly why Trump’s reactionary defense of the existing names of the military facilities as “part of a Great American Heritage” is so wrongheaded and insulting to the intelligence of the American people.

No, it doesn’t take much intelligence or common sense to realize that taking a stance against renaming American military bases that honor Confederate generals is a bad idea at any time post-1865.

It does, however, take a special blend of stupidity and malice to try to make that argument right now, and those are two “qualities” that Donald Trump has in abundance.

He must be removed.
