[Watch] Trump Doesn't Know the Difference Between 9/11 and a Convenience Store

Or maybe The Donald just has Beyoncé on his mind?

The gaffe king strikes again.

Presidential candidate Donald Trump seemed to have Slurpees, or maybe Beyoncé, on the brain — can you blame him? — during a rally in New York City on Tuesday, the day of the state's primary, when he confused 9/11 with 7/11.

"I wrote this out, and it's very close to my heart" the Republican frontrunner said. "Because I was down there and I watched our police and our firemen down at 7/11, down at the World Trade Center right after it came down. And I saw the greatest people I've ever seen in action." Despite the collective gasp, Trump did not correct himself.

Trump is projected to win the vast majority of New York State's 95 delegates in the New York primary, which has many New Yorkers shaking their heads. Delvin James spoke to CNN saying, "My response is, wow. Every time. I always go, wow." The 40-year-old Harlem native continued, "Any other country, they have a representative here in New York. He's already offended everybody in the whole world except white Americans."

Of course, Twitter had quite a bit to say about Trump mistaking our nation's darkest hour with a convenience store or Bey's ratchet anthem:

Despite this, and despite the laundry list of flubs, lies, and political missteps he has made throughout his campaign, Trump seems to be on his way to the Republican nomination.

At a different rally, Trump mocked something that would single-handedly ruin most presidential campaigns — Eric Garner's last words — but his supporters probably loved it. Catch up on Trump's most recent attack on Black Americans with BET News:
