Although Trump isn’t famed for his intellectuality, even this is a huge f*ck up for him.
While delivering a speech in Buffalo, New York, the presidential hopeful, and monumental manipulating cunt, Trump, started telling an anecdote about 9/11 – or so we think – reports the BBC.
The long-winded attempt to butter up the New Yorkers, while preaching about the solidarity and ‘values’ shown in the aftermath of 9/11, went wholeheartedly tits up, as Trump mistakenly referred to 9/11, as 7-eleven – an international chain of convenience stores.
More specifically, Trump actually said:
This is very close to my heart because I was down there. I watched our police and our firemen down on 7-eleven, down at the World Trade Centre after it came down. And I saw the greatest people I’ve ever seen in action… That’s what New York values are about.
The speech was interrupted numerous times by protesters who wreaked havoc by chanting, lying on the floor, and forcing security guards to drag them away.
How did Trump respond? In true Trump fashion – roaring, ‘get ’em out of here, get ’em out of here’. Brilliant.
However this isn’t the first time Trump has massively fucked up. Just last week the hopeful shouted, ‘how’s Joe Paterno?’ to crowds in Pittsburgh – seemingly forgetting that the legendary football coach had died 4 years previous.
But then again, maybe we should stop expecting Trump to be right all the time – after all, he’s the sort of lunatic who’s smashing an election by preaching about building a wall around Mexico.
He and other Republican and Democratic candidates were rallying ahead of Tuesday’s primary vote in the state of New York.
A victory in New York would mean a huge step on the road to nominations for US presidential candidates.
