Trump says malfunctioning teleprompter to blame for ’airport’ gaffe in speech

President Trump blamed a malfunctioning teleprompter when he stated that during the Revolutionary War, the ’took over the airports’ when airplanes didn’t exist until far after the Revolutionary War. This mistake has caused a hashtag to emerge: #RevolutionaryWarAirports.

The left acts like it's proof he's an unfit president. The economy is good, and unemployment is down. I couldn't care any less about this.

Imagine being so deranged you have to cling on to an obvious mistake that no one actually cares about.

Right, the teleprompter went out and Little Donnie's brain said, the took over the airports. Not really the sign of a quick-witted person is it, more like a nitwit.

You know a great negotiator and deal maker, wouldn't panic when the telemarketer went out and start babbling about airports in the 1700's, its to fuken funny watching you all try and spin his weird behavior away.

Teleprompters can be a bad crutch and lead to hilarious comments when they fail; like calling your wife of 20 years by a man's name or telling a crowd that you have visited all 57 states.

I think it's funny. a little thing you can laugh off. but most people don't have a sense of humor and to much petty hatred of Trump, this is another thing for people to yell and scream "Orange man bad!"

"It was the teleprompters fault which broke during the speech" Also "I knew the speech by heart and didn't need the teleprompter" Pick one Mr. President!
