Great idea… @matt The news continues to drag us down…some off-the-wall bypasses are in order…to buoy not sink the crew here. :open_hands:

Donald Trump has a habit of jumbling up his words and misspelling things on Twitter, but it’s less common for him to make those sort of gaffes in public.

During a ceremony at the White House on Tuesday, honouring a Medal of Honor recipient for his service during the Iraq war, the president got a little confused about what someone was wearing.

Staff sergeant David Bellavia was receiving the award thanks to his courageous efforts in November 2004 during the second battle of Fallujah, where he single-handedly killed four insurgents and protected the lives of his squad members.

However, when recounting Bellavia’s endeavour, Trump misspoke and claimed that one of the insurgents that Ballavia killed was not only hiding in a wardrobe but he also wearing a wardrobe too.

Next, two more insurgents came out of hiding and fired at David. He returned fire, killing them both.

Then, a third assailant burst out of a wardrobe — wearing a wardrobe — and opened fire.

THE ONION - on the Democratic 2020 primary debates

https://politics.theonion.com/what-to-expect-in-the-first-democratic-debates-1835877435 The first round of the Democratic Party 2020 primary debates will feature the top 20 presidential candidates over two nights in Miami. The Onion takes a look at what viewers should be watching for in the first Democratic debates.

Time enough for each candidate to go into depth by stating first 17 words of signature policy.

Ominous creak as stage struggles to support candidates’ collective weight.

Donald Trump’s name may come up once or twice.

Moderator to struggle suppressing laughter while posing question beginning with “In a Hickenlooper administration…”

Jay Inslee to tell heartwarming story of struggling single mother polar bear he met on campaign trail.

Intermission featuring donkey mascots performing trampoline dunks.

Embarrassing, disqualifying gaffe from Joe Biden that Democratic leaders are willing to ignore as long as he keeps a lead over Trump.

Dennis Kucinich standing onstage and taking questions for the first hour before anyone remembers he’s not running.

Pete Buttigieg to hammer home that everyone else on stage will be dead long before him.

Twenty people lying through their teeth about their ability to unite country.

Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne denounced Trump’s unauthorized use of “Crazy Train” in a Twitter video mocking the 2020 Democratic primary candidates.

The video, posted Thursday morning, opens with footage of the technical difficulties that marred Wednesday’s first Democratic primary debate and pairs it with the intro to Osbourne’s 1980 hit. Eventually, the video fades to black and reemerges with footage of Trump walking up to a podium.

New York City mayor and 2020 presidential candidate mocked after Bill de Blasio quoted Che Guevara at Miami campaign stop.

" Hasta la victoria siempre!" de Blasio shouted, according to video taken by a CBS Miami reporter. That phrase, which translates to “Until victory, always!” or “Ever on to victory!” may sound nice, but unfortunately it’s well known because Guevara was famous for using it during the 1959 Cuban Revolution

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) plans to press charges against the person who threw a drink at him earlier this month as he was leaving a town hall event, because he feared similar incidents happening to him or his staff in the future.

Gaetz was hit with a drink outside a town hall event in Pensacola, Fla., earlier in June. Video shows Gaetz surrounded by protesters when a drink comes flying out of the crowd and appears to hit him in the arm.
