"...the Great American Outdoors Act, a bipartisan bill directing $3 to conservation projects..."

About three dollars more than I expected.

"Yo Semites!"

A typical Trumpian greeting when driving by synagogues and mosques.

Trump: "I don't know, I really don't know. I don't know Yo Semites ... I never met Yo Semites, actually, I don't believe."

Being childish backfired on you. You actually told the truth.

Oh no!

You're rubber and I am glue! Now your projections about Humpy Trumpy have stuck to me! How did this happen ? How did you think of this never heard of before trick?

I bow to your awesome stable genius level of cleverness.

How could Trump know about Yosemite?
You can't build a ugly tower hotel there and there's nowhere to park his yachts.

Of course he doesn't have a clue about what Yosemite is. It's in California, and he's an alleged "billionaire" that actually chooses to eat McDonalds. What do you expect?

"Yo Semites"

LOL ~ Stephen Miller, who writes Trump's material, is probably sobbing from frustration.

Miller has been writing Trump's material long enough to know he needs to add cartoon drawings as visual aids.

"Yosemite Sam!"

"actually chooses to eat McDonalds."

Don't look a gift horse in the mouth.

If he had any class he'd eating Filet Mignon on the taxpayers' dime.

Sadly his gaffe is overshadowing what could be a really important piece of legislation. One that even I'd give him credit for signing.

The only thing is I've read that the money to fund this legislation is based on oil/gas/mining exploration and leasing on public lands. I'd like to confirm that as it's a bid deal if the Grand Canyon gets a shiny new visitor center but you have to drive past uranium mines on your way from the center to the canyon.

Here in the Gold rush Town of Sonora Ca. there is a building that is named
in stone on the front The Yo-Smite bldg. That said this is another problem with
Trump. No one helps him with his reading or pronunciation when reading.
Shouldn't a Reality TV star practice and get advice on how to present the information
given to him? But, Trump so all normality goes out the window.

Sorry Edit: Yo-Semite Bldg. Where is the edit button in this place/sadface.

Let's all just be glad he didn't give a shout out to some of his normal supporters - "Yo, Anti-Semites..."

Another dumb "Dan (potatoe) Quale" moment.

Don ask me. I don't even know what that is.

Just more proof how unprepared he is.

Wouldn't you at least read thru the script first, sorta a dry run before getting in front of people?

You could tell just from this that was the first time he was laying eyes on it.

All he had was a duty to pronounce this national inheritance. If a Trump shoots himself on fifth avenue doesn't the forest of handlcaps get heard around the world? It's obvious he didn't prepare, but also not knowing.. This isn't even a foreign nations landmark, he simply doesn't know.

It originated from Trump toilet tweeting:

..."Despite the constant negative press covfefe" six minutes after midnight (EDT) on May 31, 2017.[3] He deleted the tweet six hours later and implied later that day that its wording was intentional. White House press secretary Sean Spicer also stated, "I think the president and a small group of people know exactly what he meant".[4] The term has since been widely used to mock its author and has inspired both popular-level and scholarly analysis of language and messaging by the administration. ...[LINKY

He had a stroke? On the toilet? And ----ing "coverage" is the word he got off to?! I mean, had a stroke to?

Technically, I recognize all lands as originally the inheritance of the native tribes, but for the sake of this shared embarrassment, just wow! We witnessed the very first time Donald John Bin Laden Covfefe Trump, somehow legally the President of the United States of America and sometimes Puerto Rico has ever read the name "Yosemite".

Can you imagine him on Jeopardy?! Putin and Xi would wipe the floor and their ---es with Trump.

Trump went on about dishwashers again today. This may be a little convoluted:

"I was with somebody and they said: We don't have enough water sir,'" Trump claimed. It's been found whenever he tells a "sir" story they are generally false.

"They don't have enough water " 'cause they put restrictors on. So you don't have any water," a noticeably sweaty president told the audience at a Whirlpool factory in Clyde, Ohio. Although it was an official taxpayer-paid White House event, Trump turned the entire speech into a partisan campaign rally, which he regularly does.

"I said, What is that? What is that?' In most states, outside of desert areas we have so much water we don't know what to do with it, right? A lot of states. Your state does pretty well with it, right? They have plenty of water," Trump said, amid a pandemic that has now killed 160,000 people in America.

"So I passed a regulation, I signed a regulation to give the dishwashers much more water. And I was asking today - and that, by the way includes your washers. You don't need too much water in your dryers. But it includes your washers. And I was just saying to your brilliant people that are, uh, doing such a good job running your company, I said, How much impact has that had?' They said, Unbelievable. It's been unbelievable.' Because I had people says they'd wash their dishes and they'd press the button five times. So in the end they're probably wasting more water than if they did it once. So do you notice the people that make the machines you know what I'm talking about."

"We now have the water that you need, instead of stupid where you have much less water than you need and you just keep going over and over again. I had people say they press the button five times. They didn't have enough water. And the same thing with sinks, toilets, and showers. You go into a new home, you turn on the faucet no water comes out, you turn on the shower. If you're like me you can't wash your beautiful hair properly. You waste 20 minutes longer. Please come out the water it drips right you know what I'm talking, they put restrictors on, I get rid of that, I signed it out."

"It's common sense. So now when you actually go into a new home and pay a lot of money you turn on a faucet and water actually comes out isn't that nice? That was a regulation that was put in by a lot of people that don't understand life. Because you end up using the same amount of water you just let it run three times longer. It's crazy."

Raw Story

Yeah, "convoluted."

That's the most time I want to waste on anything Trump says.

Rereading that, it doesn't quite make sense.

'Yo-Semite Sam' was the joke on Brian Williams tonight = "Yo-Semite Sam" was Brian Williams' joke tonight.

I laughed out loud.

I was reading him aloud and I think "We now have the water that you need, instead of stupid" broke me.
