During his interview with African American Harris Faulkner that aired yesterday, Donald Trump said about Abraham Lincoln, “he did good, although it’s always questionable, you know, in other words, the end result.”
Not surprisingly, that caused a lot of double takes. What the heck was he saying or trying to say?
My post at Crooks and Liars has more on this as well as the video of his remarks and Faulkner’s reaction.

He may have been suggesting that freeing the slaves was questionable.

Some RWingers want us to believe that slaves were better off than free people, most of whom were white: an incidental detail. As slaves, non-whites lived a truly care-free life, with no worries about their next meal, what to wear, where to sleep, etc.). No obligations towards a wife or children, whose future was determined by the owner. In those days, slaves – most of whom were black – had no such worries on their minds and all they had to do was do a bit of work.
