On this day in 1963, before an audience of 250,000, stretching from the Lincoln Memorial to the Capitol, Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. gave his revered “I Have a Dream” speech.
It was the highlight of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, which was expertly organized by Bayard Rustin, A. Phillip Randolph, and Walter Reuther, the president of the United Auto Workers.
So on this fifty-eighth anniversary of that event, which changed the course of American history by inspiring the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, we here at AP thought it would be useful to bring in, once again, the ever faithful associate solitary reporter Johanna Jones to learn what Donald Trump dreamed about last night.
“Nothing unusual for him, SR,” she began. “He growled at Melania — who returned the favor — and told me (see, he thinks I’m his best
friend — why? ‘Cause I never leave his side. Which means he yells at me whenever I tell him something he doesn’t want to hear."
“He knows I’m a plant, sent by the DNC to vex him and to entertain all your AP subscribers.”
“Johanna,” he said as he sent out his twentieth tweet of the day, ”in my dream, Biden resigned in disgrace because he proved himself to be incompetent in the withdrawal from Afghanistan, the country that I said, long ago, that we should have nothing to do with.”
“And instead of Kamala Harris being sworn in right away by Justice Stephen Breyer, Mike Pence, who almost got himself hanged on January 6 when he betrayed me — Mike dragged John Roberts from his deep dark chambers in the Supreme Court, and ordered Roberts to swear me in, still as Number FortyFive, so I can continue making America great.”
“Pretty great dream, Johanna, don’t you think?”
