Not too long after President Trump made a fool out himself when it appeared that he wasn’t sure if Frederick Douglass was alive or dead, his number two took the ridiculousness to the next level.

First off, Black History Month isn’t about honoring white saviors nor did our history begin with slavery or its abolition. Thankfully, Twitter snatched Pence’s edges clean off to remind him what these 28 days actually represent:
Soon after, folks brought the jokes with the trending hashtag #PenceBlackHistory:
