Donald Trump has claimed a 17th century US army “took over the airports” in a major Independence Day speech. And you won’t believe what he blamed the error on.

Trump read his prepared speech from a teleprompter behind a bulletproof lectern streaked with rain.
On Friday he told reporters that the teleprompter had gone “kaput.”
“Actually, in the middle of that sentence it went out,” Trump said of the teleprompter. “And that’s not a good feeling.”
“I guess the rain knocked out the teleprompter, but I knew the speech very well,” he said, “so I was able to do it without a teleprompter.

In his mind, he is God, thus every Word He doth speak is Truth and all Truth is thus Spake in His Word...

I think it's amusing his knowledge of US history is so awful...shouldn't there be test for potential presidential candidates to confirm they have a basic understanding of their own history??

Meanwhile, the DNC is pushing more corrupt, corporate candidates on us while smearing progressive ones. Yes, focusing on these kinds of stories will go a long way to derail the runaway neoliberal freight-train that is responsible for putting Trump in office.

But they're oh so entertaining! Keep them coming, MSM, and everything will be hunky dory! This is how we maintain the status quo!

This coming from you who just claimed that late 18th century events took place in the 17th century.

Tell us more about the history of the US army up until 1699.

Did it all start in "Phoenix, Nevada"?

Should I keep inferring that you are stupid and uneducated or just concede that you simply got your wires crossed.

"When you cannot refute the message, attack the messenger", right boys?

The Confuser In Chief was caught displaying his ignorance (again), and all you can do is either point and laugh at those who call him out, or try to divert attention toward rumors and innuendo.

:roll: Pathetic.

What is pathetic is those acting like they believe that the president actually thinks airports existed in 1776, rather than conceding that he obviously got his wires crossed. And thus only making themselves look foolish and desperate.

What is hilarious is the OP screwing up the way he did considering the topic.

Who's refuting the message? A president, a politician, said something stupid! Oh, s**t! Call 60 minutes! We've got a major story here.

If you don't understand the point of my comment, fine. But don't attack me with a bullshit accusation. Of course Trump is an idiot, douche-bag, and totally incompetent. I've never denied that. I'm just sick of this f*****g nonsense. It's only empowering him. If you don't get that, well...I think that's pathetic!

Donald J. Trump effed up (again), blamed something other than himself (again), and immediately his starry-eyed fanboys jumped in (again) in insult and attack anyone (again) who pointed out that their idol is flawed (obviously).

Just watch the Democrats implode if they don't support Tulsi Gabbard and then scream about Russia again and then see someone even worse than Trump elected after that. It's hilarious how these people call us Trump lovers just for focusing on important matters.

If you think I and especially VegetableMan are starry-eyed fanboy idol worshipers of anyone, you obviously do not know how to read people.
