  1. Let us all enthusiastically applaud our Greatest President says:

    “President Trump made an embarrassing error when addressing crowds during his Independence Day speech, praising the army, which he said ‘took over the airports’ from the British during the revolutionary war in the late 1700s, despite air travel not occurring in the US until the early 1900s. Trump was speaking at the Lincoln memorial in Washington as part of his 4 July ‘Salute to America’ celebrations” (Guardian News UK)

  2. Yoicks says:

    “The Continental Army suffered a bitter winter at Valley Forge, found glory across the waters of the Delaware and seized victory from Cornwallis of Yorktown. 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 rocket’s red glare it had nothing but victory.”
    President Trump, During his “Salute to America” speech at the Lincoln Memorial on July 4, 2019.
    Critics pointed out the rebels could not have seized airports more than a century before the first powered flight – credited to the Wright brothers in 1903 – took off. In the same sentence, Mr Trump also appeared to date a battle at Fort McHenry to the American Revolution, when it unfolded decades later during the War of 1812.
    Outside the White House on Friday, Mr Trump said: “I guess the rain knocked out the teleprompter. “I knew the speech very well so I was able to do it without a teleprompter but the teleprompter did go out and it was actually hard to look at anyway because there was rain all over it but despite the rain it was just a fantastic evening.” (BBC News 7/5/19) https://www.bbc.com/news/48885319
