Donald Trump woke up this morning with his presidency in tatters, his approval rating in the toilet, and America at one of the lowest points in its history thanks to his villainy. So naturally, Trump decided to pat himself on the back for the narcissistic, fascist, and idiotic Fourth of July stunt he’s pulling today. The thing is, he managed to trip over himself even more than usual.
For reference, here’s what Trump tweeted: “People are coming from far and wide to join us today and tonight for what is turning out to be one of the biggest celebrations in the history of our Country, SALUTE TO AMERICA, an all day event at the Lincoln Memorial, culminating with large scale flyovers of the most modern and advanced aircraft anywhere in the World. Perhaps even Air Force One will do a low & loud sprint over the crowd.”
Well, that was his second attempt. The first time around, Trump tweeted that “Aircraft One” would be involved. This prompted that phrase to immediately begin trending on Twitter, as everyone piled on after it became clear that Trump didn’t even know the name of the airplane he’s been flying around in for the past 2.5 years.
Meanwhile, the hits keep coming. By all accounts, Donald Trump’s event tonight is expected to suffer from poor attendance. Most television news networks have decided not to air his speech. Congressman Justin Amash just quit the Republican Party. As tonight’s inept stunt unfolds, it should reveal itself to be even more of a crapfest.
