Revolutionary War Trump-Style: "Our Army Rammed The Ramparts, Took Over The Airports"

Donald Trump has been mocked across the interwebs for flubbing a line in his Independence Day speech about closing airports during the Revolutionary War

During Donald Trump's water-logged Independence Day speech, he referenced the war of 1812 as he spoke of our army "ramming the ramparts" and "taking over the airports."

“In June of 1775, the Continental Congress created a unified Army out of the Revolutionary Forces encamped around Boston and New York, and named after the great George Washington, commander in chief."

"The Continental Army suffered a bitter winter of 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 McHendry (Trump's word), under the rocket’s red glare it had nothing but victory."

"And when dawn came, their star-spangled banner waved defiant.”

Clearly, Cadet Bone Spurs is confused about the date of that first flight at Kitty Hawk.

And the battle of Fort McHenry occurred during the War of 1812, not the Revolutionary War, but, hey...



The Twitterverse was highly amused:
