In his holiday speech referring to the Revolutionary War, he made historic mistakes or misread the cue cards. He actually said: “Our army manned the air, it rammed the ramparts, it took over the airports, it did everything it had to do, and at Fort McHenry, under the rockets’ red glare, it had nothing but victory.”
Actually, tho Ben Franklin flew a kite then, there were no airplanes nor airports in 1776. And the battle of Fort McHenry was 36 years later in the War of 1812. Is it possible there are other incorrect Trumpish quotes and historic facts? For example:
Battle of Bunker Hill: Don’t fire until you see the whites-only signs.
Abe Lincoln: Can I go to Gettysburg in my helicopter?
Patrick Henry: Give me liberty or give me free wifi.
Nathan Hale: I only regret that I have but one wife to give to my country.
General Custer: Troopers, bone spur on your horses into battle!
Teddy Roosevelt: Speak softly, but carry a big wallet.
Jack Kennedy: Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do to screw up your country.
Ronald Reagan: Mr. Gorbachev, tear down the Berlin wall, so Trump can put it up on our Mexican border!
