Historians discuss White House Statue of Liberty comments

Jon Meacham and Michael Beschloss talk about the White House comments on the Statue of Liberty. Beschloss compares it to separating the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Duration: 6:40

You can watch the video there. It’s rather hilarious.

Highlights include:

Prof. Jon Meacham: “I don’t think you could celebrate liberty without celebrating immigration. We are in fact a nation, almost entirely, of immigrants.” …

Brian Williams (of all people): “Michael, when has Truth been doubted before, the way it has been doubted under this Administration by enormous segments of society?”

Prof. Michael Bechloss: “I think never in the history of the Presidency, I think it’s pretty fair to say that. And even what we saw with Mr. Miller was an example of that. His saying that the poem doesn’t count because it was put on later, you know, it’s sort of like the Bill of Rights was ratified four years after the Constitution, so Bill of Rights isn’t very important either.”

Uh … I guess I must have dozed through the history class when we discussed how Emma Lazarus’s poem was ratified by two-thirds vote of both houses of Congress and then by three-fourths of the states.
