“Prince of Whales”

On Twitter Thursday, Trump posted a tweet about meeting the Prince of Wales.


Unfortunately and predictably for the president, he confused Wales (the country that’s part of the United Kingdom) with whales (the lovable sea mammals).

Though Trump quickly deleted the tweet, the internet responded even faster with a flurry of memes and *extremely good* jokes.







“Moon is a part of Mars”

On Friday morning, Trump tweeted that instead of sending astronauts to the moon — because “we did that 50 years ago” — NASA needs to focus its efforts on sending people to Mars. That’s a reasonable request; in fact, NASA itself has been laying out plans to further explore the red planet aerially with a helicopter in 2020.

But Trump didn’t mention the advancements NASA has made toward that goal, and instead continued, “They should be focused on the much bigger things we are doing, including Mars (of which the Moon is a part), Defense and Science!”


It’s unclear what he means by that. Does he believe the moon is part of Mars? While it’s true that Mars has its own moons — two, actually! — the moon we landed on 50 years ago, our moon, orbits planet Earth.

As it turned out later,  Trump’s “Mars (of which the Moon is a part)” line is probably referring to the NASA flack’s point that going to the moon would help us get to Mars later on.

Of course, people mocked this situation with memes on social media.


 Trump’s ‘stollen’ misspelling

On Sunday, the US president spoke out on the state of his administration since winning the election in 2016, Tweeting about how Democrats “have stollen two years of my (our) Presidency (Collusion Delusion) that we will never be able to get back.”


Trump later deleted the tweet and posted a new one without the typo. He also deleted a tweet in which he misspelled “Kentucky” as “Kentuky.”

His misspelling of stolen quickly sparked a discussion on actual stollen, a German fruit and nut bread served during Christmastime.


‘The Dark Knight Rises’ music in 2020 reelection campaign video

President Donald Trump on Tuesday posted a video on Twitter that appeared to be part of his 2020 reelection campaign. In less than three hours, it had already amassed over 1 million views, but by late Tuesday night, the video was no longer available.

The reason is that it contained music from Warner Bros. Pictures’ The Dark Knight Rises, the final film in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy.

By late Tuesday night, the video in Trump’s tweet had been replaced by a message that it was no longer available “in response to a report by the copyright owner.”


Trump refers to Apple CEO Tim Cook as ‘Tim Apple’

During Tim Cook’s visit to White House,  President Trump thanked “Tim Apple” for his work during Ivanka Trump’s White House event.

Well, good job, Donald White House.


Epic movie trailer Trump made for Kim

In the last Trump-Kim Summit in Singapore, the U.S. president ended the event with a dramatic movie trailer. Though it was in 2018, we saw it before the summit in Hanoi that took place in 2019.

“Two men, two leaders, one destiny. A story about a special moment in time when a man is presented with one chance which may never be repeated. What will he choose – to show vision and leadership or not?” a narrator says in the video.


Trump takes back $1B from CA

announced Tuesday that it was canceling a federal grant to California worth nearly $1 billion after Gov. Gavin Newsom announced the cancelation of the state’s high-speed rail project.

The letter states that the Federal Railroad Administration claimed rail authority “materially failed to comply with the terms of the agreement and has failed to make reasonable progress on the project, significantly endangering substantial performance.”

16 States sued President over National Emergency Declaration

Donald Trump was sued by a coalition of 16 states led by California over his decision to declare a national emergency over illegal immigration on the southwestern border, enabling him to bypass Congress to secure the funds to get his signature wall built.

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra released a statement Monday saying the suit alleges the Trump administration’s action violates the Constitution.

“President Trump treats the rule of law with utter contempt,” Becerra said. “He knows there is no border crisis, he knows his emergency declaration is unwarranted, and he admits that he will likely lose this case in court.”

“We are suing President Trump to stop him from unilaterally robbing taxpayer funds lawfully set aside by Congress for the people of our states,” Xavier Becerra said. “For most of us, the office of the presidency is not a place for theatre.”

2019 government shutdown was the longest in U.S. history

It lasted 35 days and left hundreds of thousands of public workers unpaid and government offices closed.

President Trump is refusing to approve a budget unless it includes $5.7bn (£4.5bn) for a wall along the Mexican border – a key campaign pledge, which the president said that Mexico would pay for.

Democrats have rejected his request for funding to build it and say they will not negotiate further until the government is reopened. Trump has raised the stakes by threatening to declare a national emergency and circumvent Congress and get the money he wants.
