Critics of President Donald Trump were flying high on Thursday after his jaw-dropping gaffe in his Independence Day speech that the US Army took over airports during the Revolutionary War.
Trump, clearly reading from a teleprompter, talked about how the Continental Congress in 1775 "created a unified Army out of the Revolutionary Forces encamped around Boston and New York." The army suffered a "bitter winter of Valley Forge, found glory across the waters of the Delaware and seized victory from Cornwallis of Yorktown," Trump said.

Here's where it goes off the rails: "Our Army manned the air, it rammed (or 'rand') the ramparts, it took over airports, it did everything it had to do," Trump added. "And at Fort McHenry, under the rockets' red glare, had nothing but victory. When dawn came, the star-spangled banner waved defiant."

He certainly divides opinion, not unlike the UK  Rolling Eyes

Trumps not the only politician to make such a gaff whilst somehow trying to bask in the glory of the poor souls that sacrificed their lives throughout history.

Not so many years ago Cameron praised the yanks for coming to the aid of Britain in 1939.  They didn’t.  Albeit they supplied aid and weapons for which we only finished paying them back every penny about 10 or 15 years ago,  the yanks didn’t declare war on Germany until December 1941.  And that was just after Pearl Harbour.
