Video: MLK's Daughter Channels Archie Bunker's recollection of who Signed Declaration of Independence

While on-hand at the National Mall in Washington, D.C. during the commemoration of a Chinese-made statue dedicated to her father, Martin Luther King, Jr.'s daughter, Bernice King appeared to know as much about American history as the Mao-loving sculptor responsible for the statue. While appearing to compare the MLK statue with that of Lincoln's, Bernice said that Lincoln was remembered for signing the Declaration of Independence. Uh, not unless he discovered a time machine first.

It reminded me of an Archie Bunker quote from an episode in which he was conversing with George Jefferson:
Hold it, hold it, Jefferson. I don't go around signing political documentaries just like that, ya know. Even Abe Lincoln, smart as he was, he read the Declaration of Independence before putting his John Hancock on it.
Oh, the irony.

Nearly a year ago, I wrote about why I have a problem with this statue. Aside from the fact that it was made in China by a sculptor of Mao statues, it portrays MLK as angry, with a furrowed brow and crossed arms. While we're on the subject of MLK and American presidents, I also wrote about the King family lawsuit that found James Earl Ray innocent of their father's death. Who'd they find guilty? Uh, well, operatives in a Democrat administration.

Anyway, here is Bernice King misremembering what Lincoln is remembered for:
