On July 4th, the National Public Radio (NPR) Twitter account continued their yearly tradition of tweeting the entire Declaration of Independence in a series of over 100 posts to their feed.

We won't post the entire thread, but here is a sample:

Not only did these people fail to recognize the Declaration of Independence in the first place, but they also misinterpreted the 241-year-old words and thought that NPR intended to start some sort of violent political revolution.

Looks like Donald Trump is not the only one who should have paid more attention in history class.

Hey, it's not their fault. The Declaration of Independence is just way too PC.
