Good effin Lord.

Next thing you know Cheetohead will claim that Kansas City is in the path of a hurricane.

That didn't take long.

Geography is clearly not Donald Trump’s strong suit

... Chances are, this latest story will soon fade, to be replaced with some other unfortunate mistake, but if recent history is any guide, White House officials will quietly direct the United States Geological Survey to issue an unsigned statement today, explaining that the Chiefs technically play in Kansas, reality be damned....

This is a Facts sub-forum, 1 FAT CAN is allergic.


Not entirely geography fails, but some are included:

Trump stumbles on Indian names, Hindi word in cricket stadium speech

With all of the things that we righteously dis 45SHOLE on we sometimes neglect to mention his sheer intellectual laziness. It's just not that hard to learn how to pronounce a few words correctly, especially when visiting an ally that's the 2nd (soon 1st, 2022) most populous nation on the planet. Not doing so is just rude.

He's called Dolt .45 for a reason, embarrassing America wherever AF1 lands. Sad.
