I begin with The Daily (Social Distancing) Show with Trevor Noah's Confederate Symbols Are Coming Down.
Confederate monuments and flags are coming down as the nation reckons with its racial past, but Trump refuses to rename military bases named after Confederate figureheads.That same night, Late Night with Seth Meyers covered much of the same territory in Trump Defends the Confederacy, Complains About Polls: A Closer Look.*
Seth takes a closer look at President Trump pinning his hopes of a political comeback on whining about polls and sticking up for the confederacy.The Late Show with Stephen Colbert even got in on it, featuring a clip from "Tooning Out The News," Ghosts of Confederate soldiers have new military base name ideas for Trump.
President Trump wants U.S. military base names to connote winning, so some ghosts of the Confederacy suggest a few actual winners.Even the cartoon ghosts think Trump is on the wrong side of history.
I might have more on the topic of Confederate monuments and their role in rewriting history tomorrow. Stay tuned.
*Seth also covered Trump and his campaign whining about a CNN poll. FiveThirtyEight featured it in a segment about good or bad use of polling. They concluded it was a bad use of polling. I think it was a bad use of lawyers on Trump's campaign's part as well.
