Trump’s mind takes flight when he says the Continental Army took over the airports

Perhaps the president’s teleprompter did go kaput during his Fourth of Trump Wikipedia history lesson Thursday night when he uttered the infamous words:

“The Continental Army suffered the bitter winter of Valley Forge, found glory across the waters of the Delaware, and seized victory from Cornwallis of Yorktown. Our Army handled the air, it rammed the ramparts. It took over the airports.”

Evidently, George Washington was ahead of his time, covering all the bases just in case King George III beat the Wright Brothers to manned flight.

Now we all have our brain farts. But a guy who occupies the White House should have known that planes were not yet flying during the Revolutionary War.

Apparently, Trump’s mind went kaput as well.

In the interest of fair and balanced reporting, Barack Obama said during his 2008 presidential campaign that he had visited 57 states with one left to go.

I don’t know about you, but I miss George Washington.
