In his Independence Day speech, US President Donald Trump paid tribute to the actions of George Washington’s Continental Army for infiltrating and blowing up the alien mother ship.
He commended the courage of US President George Washington who was prepared to sacrifice his own life in order to nuke the ship.
“They don’t make Presidents like that anymore,” he quipped.
The President also praised the air force of the time, marvelling at how “those little planes” could have flown so high, outside the Earth’s atmosphere to penetrate the ships.
“They must have been really good at holding their breath. Comes from wading across the Delaware,” he quipped.
History records that Washington lost six of his nine battles but Trump declared that as “fake news”.
“They were telling lies about US Presidents waaaaay back,” he quipped.
When critics suggested he was confusing American Independence Day with the movie of the same name Trump blamed the teleprompter.
He said: “Although we tanned their hides, the British sabotaged the machine to make me look dumb. But they can’t do that because I’m smart. I’m the smartest man I know and I know lots of smart men. Anyone who knows smart people will tell you I’m one of the smartest.
“Of course I know the movie. I’ve seen it several times. I think they modelled President Whitmore on me, although that was before I became President.
And I’m better looking than Bill Pullman,” he quipped.
