Well, it’s happened: Donald Trump’s invited the beleaguered kids from Covington Catholic High School to the White House.

The students’ve had a hard time of it lately: As I covered Monday, they were falsely accused by the mainstream media of a racist attack on an elderly American Indian (here). Subsequently, they received death threats — and death wishes (here).

Enter the President, stage Right. And he loves to stick it to the Left.

On Monday, Trump tweeted his empathy:

“Looking like Nick Sandman & Covington Catholic students were treated unfairly with early judgements proving out to be false – smeared by media. Not good, but making big comeback! ‘New footage shows that media was wrong about teen’s encounter with Native American.'”

ATTACK that fake news, Prez! Attack!

You know he loves it.

“Nick Sandmann and the students of Covington have become symbols of Fake News and how evil it can be. They have captivated the attention of the world, and I know they will use it for the good – maybe even to bring people together. It started off unpleasant, but can end in a dream!”

Apparently, CNN was none too happy with the most powerful man on the planet defending a bunch of whiteys. It reported thusly, Tuesday morning:

“President Donald Trump is publicly siding with the mostly white students of a Kentucky high school who were engaged in a confrontation with a Native American elder that renewed a sensitive national debate about race relations in America.”

I’m gobsmacked!

But Trump ain’t. Therefore, Covington central character Nick Sandmann relayed the news to The Daily Wire:

“The President wants to send a plane down to get us.”

Prepare for a great lamenting of white privilege as the students meet the Leader of the Free World. After all, as we learned from Covington critic Erik Abriss just veritable moments ago, those teens’ve been taught their whole lives that Divinity grants them dominion over all the colored peoples of the earth (here).

They’ve also had the privilege — as of late — of being some of the most derided people in the country. So good for them on their White House invitation. In the video, some of them sported hats hoping to Make America Great Again; now their lives need to be made great again. Hopefully this is a step in that direction: they’ll get to meet the Big Red Hat himself. Have fun, kiddos.
