What sort of person has the nerve to do such a thing. America what have you done.

NatashaAnnKelly Wed 25-Jan-17 16:42:53

I suppose it's not a surprise but still gosh I'm shaking at the news we have a racist as most powerful man in world.

He's just moved it. Not removed it

glenthebattleostrich Wed 25-Jan-17 16:45:50

He didn't. It is still there.

How long has it been there? Most presidents pick their own art I think. Doesn't look great but he maybe doesn't want the same art as Obama.

He's moved it, not removed it.

And really, you're shaking? Really?

BizzyFizzy Wed 25-Jan-17 16:48:49

He's added a bust of Winston Churchill smile

AnthonyPandy Wed 25-Jan-17 16:52:06

I think Churchill was moved to make space for MLK by Obama? Can anyone confirm that?

MrsBernardBlack Wed 25-Jan-17 16:53:45

As PPs have said, MLK is still there. Churchill had been there for some time, but apparently Obama removed him when he became POTUS. Trump has put him back.

Lweji Wed 25-Jan-17 16:54:49

He didn't.

Also, it's old news and already debunked.

Let the shaking and over reacting be done. MLK is still there cake

ClaudiaNaughton Wed 25-Jan-17 16:55:22

I think Obama moved Churchill out and replaced with MLK. I understood Churchill was reinstated but MLK is there also.

SheldonsSpot Wed 25-Jan-17 16:56:08

There there OP, you can stop shaking now hmm.

Lweji Wed 25-Jan-17 16:56:42

If you really want to be disgusted, there are more important Trump issues to be disgusted about.

Join us in the Trump BAD threads. It's all SAD and FAKE. grin

LagunaBubbles Wed 25-Jan-17 16:57:48

Looks like you had better check your facts first before you shake with rage!

JustAnotherSilentOldNumber Wed 25-Jan-17 17:08:36

I wish people would fact check before getting so worked up.

Creampastry Wed 25-Jan-17 17:09:27

You're shaking..... get a grip

I think Obama moved Churchill out and replaced with MLK

Obama himself didn't actually move Churchill from the Oval Office.

The bust was actually on loan to Dubya and when his term ended, it was returned - to the British Embassy I think. There is, however, a bust of Churchill outside the President's private quarters which was there throughout the whole of Obama's presidency.

Much ado about busts.

I'd be worried if Trump had put a different kind of bust on display. The 32D kind.

originalmavis Wed 25-Jan-17 17:15:44

I dnt know what's real news these days (but I did think they'd moved it).

I suspect there are so many dodgy stories, accusations of lies and barefaced not-quite-truths thrown around so that everyone is just left scratching their heads not knowing what to believe.

Its like that comedy game show where someone has to talk about a subject and slip in a few whoppers amongst the truth and the panel has to guess what were the lies.

Megatherium Wed 25-Jan-17 17:18:36

But we've known for a long time that he's a racist, haven't we? And a misogynist?

Slightlyperturbedowlagain Wed 25-Jan-17 17:23:41

I'm sure he will soon be adding to the collection with a life-size figure of himself (in gold, naturally)

PausingFlatly Wed 25-Jan-17 17:26:11

Oh god, Slightlyperturbed, please don't suggest that to him.

You know he would.

Check your facts before you make yourself look like an idiot. biscuit
