"Our Army manned the air, it rammed (?) the ramparts, it took over airports, it did everything it had to do. And at Fort McHenry, under the rockets' red glare, had nothing but victory. When dawn came, the star-spangled banner waved defiant." Trump

"Was this when the Battle of Baggage Claim was fought?"

No doubt. That was a major event in history.

Airplane travel wasn't very sophisticated during the Revolutionary War.

The official transcript of Trump's speech hasn't been released yet. I'm guessing that line will be deleted.

However, the late night comedians will probably crucify him.

Dear James, We ran out of covfefe near a fortnight ago. We raided the planes' hospitality carts to no avail. The Redcoats had diamond status and entered the jetway before us. I fear the Dunkin' at Gate 35B has been overrun. We are at a disadvantage #RevolutionaryWarAirportStories

As the Red Coats advanced through the terminal, we knew our time was running short. Morale was depleted, boarding began in mere minutes. "Hold them at the Hudson [News]!" Washington commanded. The battle of Logan Intl had begun. #RevolutionaryWarAirportStories

Dearest Martha, please find enclosed a tracking number for my lost luggage at Philadelphia. It shall arrive to Mount Vernon via carriage in 21-25 days. Also enclosed is a receipt for the cost of parking my horse at Dulles for the weekend. #RevolutionaryWarAirportStories

#5 | Posted by Twinpac

When his speechwriters write a speech they should keep in mind the dude always sounds like it's the first time he's ever seen it, struggling to read through it. There may be phonetic spellings of larger words. He always seems to over pronounce words he'd otherwise stumble through. And repeat them as though to give a wink to the speechwriters he made it through those particular words.

He conflated the war of 1812 with the Revolutionary war. What a muddled mess.

It was like watching "drunk history" without the accuracy.

I am enjoying the posts. I watched and I heard him say "airports" and had to skip back and confirm. I thought "yeah, no one's going to miss an opportunity on that one!" hehe!

Watching the beginning of Trump's nonsense last night, I said this to my fiancé. Whether or not he emphasizes those words because he screwed them up before and is using all of his extremely limited bandwidth to get them right.

I heard this live, had to rewind and knew he was going to get crushed for it. The sad reality is much like the stupid "57 states"thing, this is nothing more than a normal occurrence for anyone that gives speeches. Losing your place in the speech, even if you are looking right at it, happens. I teach classes from 20 to 500 participants and I get my words turned around all the time. I am not the President, so he should be better than me or even this, but there is no chance this is anything more than giving a chronology of the Army and getting out of order. If you think he didn't know there weren't airports during the revolutionary war, that's crazy.

There is plenty to criticize him over, this isn't one.

Everyone presumes he didn't go off script at any point. I am on the fence, but it does appear that he honestly believes airports were involved at the time of the Great Revolution against his kind of leadership. I do not believe any speech writer would have included such fallacy by accident.

"I do not believe any speech writer would have included such fallacy by accident."

I agree.

Trump did plagiarize the National Anthem a few times ~ "bombs bursting in air." "Rocket red glare." And he certainly didn't know what a rampart was.

My guess is the dumb-ass wrote the speech himself.

He doesn't know. The word was in the National Anthem so he thought it was probably something good.

In fact, his whole speech sounded like it was plagiarized from a comic book. (my apologies to the classics)
