Just in case you were wondering why in the hell the Civil War is the #1 trending topic on Twitter..let us explain.
Trump is giving us another dose of alternative facts and this is almost too good. So, he thinks Andrew Jackson was alive during the Civil War...he also seems to be baffled as to why the Civil War could not have been worked out.
OH I DON'T KNOW. MAYBE BECAUSE SLAVERY??
He apparently had a convo with Jackson's ghost, and his ghost told him that he was very angry about the war.

#TSRPolitics (Swipe for more): Just in case you were wondering why the #CivilWar is trending on Twitter, #Donnie seems to hit the jackpot again with his #AlternativeFacts after he claimed #AndrewJackson was angry about the war .... even though he died 16 years before it actually happened 😩🤦🏾♀️ #FakeNews #DonaldTrump
DIS TEW MUCH.
Anyway, so now the internet is completely owning how smart the president is. So full of alternative history.

Andrew Jackson was not living during the Civil War. So unless you communicated with his Ghost, you don't know he was angry!

Most people don't know that if Frederick Douglass had not used chemical weapons on his own people, the Civil War would not have happened.— Reza Aslan (@rezaaslan) May 1, 2017
