Historian Ken Burns Discusses Donald Trump: Saving America from Itself

Video from CNN

"Historian and filmmaker Ken Burns tells Christiane Amanpour "that Donald Trump is the least qualified person who has ever run for national office." from video introduction.

The time is long past to denounce Donald Trump. We could be on our way to Americas first Dictator if things continue as they are. Christians not tainted by politics and political idols will be our only saving grace in the future. Our Lord is Lord of all and only He can save us!

"Documentary filmmaker Ken Burns spent more than 10 minutes of his Stanford University commencement speech Sunday demolishing everything about presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

At the top of his speech in Stanford Stadium, in Palo Alto, California, Burns noted he always strives for "conscious neutrality in my work, avoiding the advocacy of many of my colleagues."

But he soon ripped into the candidate, telling graduates that the stakes were too high to pretend that he could potentially be a good choice for the presidency.

"There comes a time when I and you can no longer remain neutral, silent -- we must speak up and speak out," said Burns, who is known for historical documentaries. "For 216 years, our elections -- though bitterly contested -- have featured the philosophies and characters of candidates who were clearly qualified."

"That is not the case this year," he said, to a round of applause..." from the article (2016): Ken Burns Offers Blistering Takedown Of Donald Trump In Stanford Commencement Speech
