In the age of Donald Trump, highly accomplished and well-respected liberal voices continue to lose their collective minds — Jon Meacham, the Pulitzer Prize-winning presidential historian, seemingly among them.

After President Trump’s Oval Office address on the need for a wall on our Southern border, Meacham tweeted: America should “build a wall of steel, a wall as high as Heaven” against the flow of immigrants, quoting Georgia Gov. Clifford Walker, at a 1924 convention of the Ku Klux Klan, then a powerful force at a time of strain for the white working class.

Wow. A “historian” deliberately linking the current president of the United States to the most vile, repugnant and reviled organization in American history.

Read the whole thing. Why would a leftist such as Meacham want to reinforce why it was such a good idea for Trump to have left his former party before becoming president?
