MLK IS DEAD, SO TRUMP ATTACKS SUCCESSOR

Birther Trump attacks national hero Rep. John Lewis for calling him "illigitimate" by tweeting the lie that Lewis' center city Atlantic district is in "sad" shape. Meanwhile, he nominates an uninformed, inexperienced token black who thinks blacks cause their own poverty, says he's not an administrator, and dislikes the department he was selected to lead: HUD, which administers to the nation's center city blacks. --JP
