Trump Gets Roasted To Fiery Twitter Hell For Saying He Met With The President Of The Virgin Islands, AKA Himself

"He spoke to his reflection for 20 minutes before his babysitter explained what a mirror was."

Published October 13, 2017

Since Donald Trump took the oath of office, Friday afternoons stopped being a relaxing time for people to enter the weekend and became a moment of breaking news from the White House or a blunder from the president. 

Today, no one in Trump's cabinet was fired or resigned, which means Trump is either tweeting something crazy or saying something crazy.

  1. On Friday, Trump told a roomful of people in D.C. that he recently met with the president of the Virgin Islands

    "I left Texas and I left Florida and I left Louisiana and I went to Puerto Rico and I met with the president of the Virgin Islands," Trump said.

  2. There's only one problem...

    It seems Trump forgot that the U.S. Virgin Islands are a U.S. territory (hence the U.S. in the title). He also forgot the territory has a governor, whose name is Kenneth Mapp.  

  3. Trump's ridiculous statement was quickly mocked on Twitter
  4. And with any good joke on Twitter, it soon became a meme
