The Trumps bungle Pearl Harbor Day on Twitter

It’s been 76 years since the attack on Pearl Harbor, and on this day of historical remembrance both Donald and Melania Trump are posting error-filled tweets. Surprise!

While the president carelessly misquoted a pretty famous line from President Roosevelt’s famous Pearl Harbor address, Melania straight-up tweeted the wrong date of the attack. 

It’s pretty simple: Edit. Before. You. Tweet.

President Trump kicked things off by attempting to tweet the memorable FDR quote from his national address: “Yesterday, Dec. 7, 1941, a date which will live in infamy…”

Here’s how it was originally said:

But instead, Trump wrote: “A day that will live in infamy!”

Sure it’s a nit-picky error to point out, but he had ONE JOB. Not to mention he then proceeded to retweet his own incorrect tweet.

FLOTUS, meanwhile, also tweeted to honor the “Pearl Harbor Heroes” and thank members of the military. She wrote Nov. 7, 1941 instead of Dec. 7, 1941 — the correct date of the Pearl Harbor attack.

Melania’s tweet has since been deleted but screenshots are forever. And you can bet people noticed that POTUS and FLOTUS were having an especially tough time on Twitter.

Better luck next time, you two. Because despite your many Twitter mishaps you both keep coming back for more.
