The news is out: [Donald Trump has inaccurately claimed that the Spanish Flu pandemic of 1918 ended WWII – a conflict that did not begin until two decades later.
Speaking at a White House press briefing on Monday evening, the president also got the year the pandemic started wrong.
“The closest thing is in 1917, they say, the great pandemic,” Mr Trump told reporters.
“It certainly was a terrible thing where they lost anywhere from 50 to 100 million people, probably ended the Second World War,” he added.]
Trump’s stupidity is like the Universe; it keeps expanding, rapidly.
