Trump Seems To Declare Desert Storm Occurred In Vietnam In 4th of July Catastrophe

During his Fourth of July Speech, Trump claimed that Operation Desert Storm happened in the jungles of Vietnam.

Trump said, “In the fields and jungles of Vietnam, they delivered a swift and swiffian, It was swift and it was sweeping like nobody’s ever seen happen. A victory in Operation Desert Storm, a lot of you were involved in that. A lot of you were involved. That was a quick one.”

The corporate media rushed to cover for Trump in a way that didn’t excuse Hillary Clinton in 2016, and don’t excuse Joe Biden.

Here is Daniel Dale of CNN claiming that Trump “stumbled:”

No, he didn’t. He stumbled when trying to say the word “sweeping” while talking about Desert Storm, but he was just listing wars – he mentioned Vietnam, then, stumbling, mentioned the sweeping victory in Desert Storm. Didn’t make a substantive error. https://t.co/rYA0nyp4qV

Dale pointed to the transcript, which Trump is notorious for not following:

No, he didn’t. He stumbled when trying to say the word “sweeping” while talking about Desert Storm, but he was just listing wars – he mentioned Vietnam, then, stumbling, mentioned the sweeping victory in Desert Storm. Didn’t make a substantive error. https://t.co/rYA0nyp4qV

For the record Operation Desert Storm was part of the first Gulf War. It had nothing to do with Vietnam. The Trump campaign wants to pretend like Joe Biden is in cognitive decline, but Trump can’t make it through a single public appearance without butchering words or getting history totally wrong.

Trump is losing it. He seems to think that it is 1968, and he’s Richard Nixon, but the reality is that Donald Trump is in clear cognitive decline. The President Of The United States doesn’t know the difference between the Gulf War and the Vietnam War.

Joe Biden has been delivering solid performances in the general election campaign, as Donald Trump can barely function. Trump’s mind is cracking under the scrutiny and spotlight of the presidency.

Listen for yourself, and decide whether Trump doesn’t know what he is talking about or if he so feeble that can no longer read off a script.

Either way, this diminished president is not fit for reelection.
