Trump Makes Pathetic Excuse For His Horrible 4th Of July Speech, Blames Teleprompter

What a dummy.

Donald Trump was widely mocked after he said during his Fourth of July “Salute to America” speech Thursday that the Continental Army “took over the airports” from the British during the American Revolutionary War in the 1770s, well over a century before the airplane was even invented.

The former reality show star heaped praise on the Americans’ military efforts in the war against Great Britain. “Our army manned the air, it rammed the ramparts, it took over the airports, it did everything it had to do, and at Fort McHenry, under the rockets’ red glare, it had nothing but victory,” Trump said.

Even though Trump has previously mocked his predecessor for using a teleprompter,  he blamed (checks notes) a faulty teleprompter.

“The teleprompter went out, it kept going on and then at the end it just went out, it went kaput, so I could’ve said — and actually right in the middle of that sentence it went out and that’s not a good feeling,” Trump told reporters.  “When you’re standing in front of millions and millions of people on television and I don’t know what the final count was but that went all the way back to the Washington Monument.”

“I knew the speech very well,” he added. “So I was able to do it without a teleprompter but the teleprompter did go out.”


So, Trump didn’t know that airplanes didn’t exist back then and needed a teleprompter to remind him? Okie dokie then, President Stable Genius.

Flashback: In 2012, Trump blasted President Barack Obama for using a teleprompter.

And this:


And again:


Trump’s bizarre claim has been trending on Twitter since his speech.

Twitter users are reminding him of his hypocrisy.

Trump has consistently used a teleprompter, but he typically goes off script — and that’s when he suffers from diarrhea of the mouth. Trump, an unstable dummy, was voted in to hold the highest seat in the land by his fringe base who think he’s super smart. Let that sink in.

Conover makes tea partiers cry as a hobby. She was Commander of Jade Helm15 during the failed takeover of the South. She's also one of the biggest arseholes on Twitter. At night, she can be found drinking Conservative tears while pulling off the wings of flies just because she can. She is the founder of a Marxist, Commie, Maoist, Socialist site and has contributed to several other sites, blah blah blah. She is an awful person but she doesn't like to brag about that.
