Hey Donald: You Bombed
Syria, Not Iraq!
Hey Donald: just because they are geographical neighbors, Iraq is not Syria.
Yes, Donald Trump’s first action as Commander-In-Chief was a military strike against Syria. However, “The Donald” remembered more about a delicious dessert than the country he sent missiles to destroy.
During a televised interview this week with Fox News, Trump told the tale of the night he launched his first military action.
“We had the most beautiful piece of chocolate cake that you’ve ever seen,” Trump told Fox’s Maria Bartiromo. And then, “I was given the message from the generals.”
According to Trump, “The generals” asked him whether he wanted to launch cruise missiles at Syria in retaliation for the use of chemical weapons by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad., to which he replied yes.
Then he turned toward Chinese President Xi Jinping, with whom he was having dinner.
“I said, ‘we’ve just launched 59 missiles heading to Iraq.'”
“Heading to Syria,” Bartiromo interrupted.
“Yes, heading toward Syria,” a befuddled Trump said.

Hey Donald; you can remember the intricate details of a delectable chocolate confection you devoured, but can’t remember the name of the country you bombed?? Somehow, the irony is befitting the current White House occupant.
Check out the oddest video of the week below.
THANK GOD IT’S FRIDAY!
