FDR buffs will note that the actual quote is “A date which will live in infamy.” You know what though? Trump is close enough. He got the gist. The weird part, beyond the slight misquote, is the addition of the exclamation mark. What’s that all about?
National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day – “A day that will live in infamy!” December 7, 1941— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 7,
FDR certainly did not intone an exclamation mark when he spoke these words. As you can hear above, it sounds more like a comma, or perhaps an em dash. Next up? Melania Trump. Her well-meaning tweet, which has since been deleted, made one pretty crucial error. She got the date wrong, suggesting the Pearl Harbor attack occurred on Nov. 7 and not, you know, today. Two small mistakes, but you know what they say, the couple that mis-tweets together, uh, kisses sweet together? Is there any evidence that these two have ever kissed?
