President Donald Trump confused the Baltic states in Europe with the Balkans -- and chastised leaders of the former for starting wars 1990s that lead to the break up of Yugoslavia, French daily Le Monde reported. Trump reportedly made the mistake in a White House meeting with Dalia Grybauskaitė of Lithuania, Kersti Kaljulaid of Estonia and Raimonds Vējonis of Latvia in April. The leaders were reportedly confused by the president's accusation, and it took them a minute to realize he had confused the Balkans and the Baltics.

Geology is not geography. If you're going to trash Trump, at least get it right.

That's not what I learned in the Balkans. Or the Baltics...whatever.

Humor apparently doesn't translate well from English to Russian.

No surprise that a trump supporter is too stupid to get the joke.

Yes this is yet another token on the massive pile of evidence that trump is a moron, but so what?

That's why his supporters like him. They like him BECAUSE he's stupid like they are and he makes them feel like you don't need to be smart to succeed.

He'll never lose any of his cult members because they suddenly see evidence that he's not very smart.

Donnie Dimwit is apparently a descendent of Denny Dimwit of the old comic strip.

Flew to France in a big 'ol plane
but his bouffant hairdo was afraid of rain
so he jumped back on air force 1
said, "----- you Europe..you're no fun"
a real president called him out to his face
told him "nationalist" is a total disgrace
Now he's back just to mess with us
a national boil full of republican pus
but we won the house and we got subpoena power
just think Suraman...but in trump tower
