Donald Trump just seriously f*cked up and humiliated America – again – by proving how unfathomably stupid he is.
In a speech earlier today at the Values Voter Summit, Trump claimed that he had “met with the president of the Virgin Islands” while he spoke about the devastation the Caribbean islands had suffered due to recent hurricanes. Trump’s exact words were:
“I went to Puerto Rico, and I met with the president of the Virgin Islands, these are people that are incredible people. They’ve suffered gravely, and we’ll be there. We’re gonna be there. We have, really, it’s not even a question of a choice … we’re going to be there as Americans.”
Once these words came out of his mouth, Twitter practically erupted and rushed to point out what Trump is absolutely oblivious to:
It should be noted that this moment is particularly embarrassing because Trump is the first sitting president to speak at this summit, which has been dubbed “the premier conservative event now in the country” by conservative pundit Sean Hannity. As usual, Trump blew it in front of over 3,000 summit attendees, as well as the rest of the world.
Apparently, Trump has no idea that the Virgin Islands are a territory of the United States. While the islands are lead by Governor Kenneth Mapp, Trump is the president. Then again, we shouldn’t be surprised that Trump has no idea what the hell is going on or what his role is. He hasn’t spent a day of his presidency actually doing his job, or learning about the country he is supposed to be leading. These shameful slip ups have become standard for him and he doesn’t seem to care that he is destroying the reputation of what was once a well respected country. Trump seriously needs to go!
