World War II ended in Europe following Benito Mussolini being executed and Adolph Hitler committing suicide. The war in the Pacific ended after Japan surrendered, following the U.S. detonating two atomic bombs.

Actually Trump keeps on calling it the '1917 Pandemic', which actually started in February 1918 and lasted thru the middle of 1920.

I don't think I've ever heard Trump call it by its correct name, the '1918 Flu Pandemic'.

More evidence Trump has never cracked a book open.

Wrong year AND the wrong war

Food for thought:

I don't know how many times this needs to be said. Trump didn't make "a mistake" about a historical fact.

He got you to stop talking about Deutsche Bank and the Manhattan DA's criminal investigations of him.

Trump didn't say something dumb. He convinced you - of your own free will - not to discuss Jared Kushner condemning thousands of Americans to death. Or Russian bounties on our soldiers. Or the NRA's money laundering from Russia.

If you're a journalist, what's your excuse?

Maybe next time he'll call it the USA or American Virus since the first known case were diagnosed in US soldiers.

Trump doesn't know how to shut his mouth when he doesn't know enough about a topic to talk about it does he?

When I first read this yesterday I thought it was from a satire site. I mean, this is the President who should know even basic history. I even went to Snopes to check it out. Sadly, it's real news.

If you look real close you can see what's left of his brain dripping out of his ears...

"Frederick Douglass did an amazing job in the War of 1917.

Many people are talking about it. It's was probably the most amazing -- some would say definitely the most amazing -- thing that ever happened."

-- President Clorox von Bunker

I bet he doubles down because I bet you didn't know that nobody knows history like he does. Then his cultists will go to Wikipedia and change the entries for WW2 and the 1917 pandemic. They may have already done so.

When will the republi8cl0wn sympathizers stop saying there is enough of the orange pig left to "play us"... and face the facts Trumpibunkerboi is senile, losing it... and is leaving office in disgrace.

But what about that stuff that Biden said wrong? It's like he didn't read the manual. Many people have come up to Mr. Trump and said "Sir, please do something about the manuals. There's already too much winning." So Trump did--no more winning for you...

It's so cute how MAGAts still think he is playing some sort of high dimensional chess. He's an imbecile. He's what dumb people consider a smart person. Bluster and an ill-fitting suit do not make you smart. The projection upon Biden is the funniest part. Can't wait for the debates!
