Twitter bursts out laughing after Donald Trump says the “Army took over the airports during the Revolutionary War.”
Trump made up history during his washed out Fourth of July speech. There were no airports in 1775.
“Our Army manned the air, it rammed the ramparts, it took over the airports, it did everything it had to do,” Trump said. This is like the Bowling Green Massacre that Kellyanne Conway made up.

Trump’s hijacking of the holiday event was a flop due in part to thunderstorms. All I can say is there is a God.
Appearing to have some reading trouble, Trump said that the army “took over the airports” during a part of his speech about its actions in the 1700s and early 1800s, when there were not airports or airplanes. pic.twitter.com/fgr8rXBGnD

Even back then, there were always Flight Delays on Colonial Airways, since there were no airplanes.
The good news was the Baggage Claim lines were always short. Just ask Wilbur Ross who worked there/#TrumpParade #IndependenceDay pic.twitter.com/Yqi7aofUh5

What the fuck is he talking about? Cornwallis of Yorktown and Fort McHenry was during the War of 1812. Which airports did they take over?

Speaking of airports…didn’t Robert E. Lee take a Delta flight from Virginia to Atlanta’s Hartsfield–Jackson airport after losing the Battle of Appomattox to Grant?
