Guys, President Donald Trump is falling apart. We always knew this, but it's becoming clearer and clearer with every second of every day. Yesterday, he made the ill-advised decision to recognize Jerusalem as the official capital of Israel, and in a speech about it slurred his words so badly that people thought he was having a stroke.
He continued his streak of mistakes this morning when he tweeted out perhaps the most famous quote about the attack on Pearl Harbor but got it wrong. Melania joined Donald on the error train with her super wrong Pearl Harbor tweet as well. Maybe they really are meant for each other...
The family that messes up together stays together. Maybe?

It's Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, and yet, it doesn't seem like Donald or Melania remember the details too well.
On Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, Trump gets the quote wrong (it was “a date which will live in infamy”) and Melania… https://t.co/xRjmoeH6VY— Brian Klaas (@Brian Klaas)1512661969.0
Let's take Melania's now-deleted tweet first.
via: TwitterMelania wrote the date as 11/7/1941. Of course, the attack on Pearl Harbor did not occur in November on 11/7 but in December, on 12/7, which is also Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, which is also today. We all forget the date sometimes, but we are not all the first lady with an entire staff around us making sure we don't mess up important things.
It really begs the question, What was she thinking?, a question that Melania herself seems to enjoy asking.
What is she thinking? http://t.co/rFufrgMb— MELANIA TRUMP (@MELANIA TRUMP)1344625626.0
Of course, Melania deleted the tweet with the error and reposted a new one with the correct date.
Today we honor Pearl Harbor Heroes. 12/7/1941 Thank you to all military for your courage and sacrifice! https://t.co/fuxvoaXAno— Melania Trump (@Melania Trump)1512662692.0
Donald Trump's first mistake on Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day was, well, not tweeting about Pearl Harbor.He started the day with the above tweet recommending a book on Andrew Jackson written by Fox News personality Brian Kilmeade. Of course, we all know that Donald Trump doesn't read books, so this tweet was strange for several reasons.
But then, someone must have whispered in his ear that it's the anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, so Trump tweeted this:
via: TwitterOf course, the problem with this tweet is that "A day that will live in infamy!" is a misquoted passage from Roosevelt's speech. That's not actually what he said. And the craziest part of this? He hasn't deleted and corrected it. As of almost noon, the tweet is still up.
The real quote is, "A date which will live in infamy." What Trump wrote is close but no cigar.
It’s date. And which. A *date* *which* will live in infamy. https://t.co/HfbZAXz2qN— VoteVets (@VoteVets)1512660796.0
While many were quick to point out that Donald Trump had made a mistake, no one was actually surprised.
a misquote of one of the most quoted phrases in American history is extremely on-brand https://t.co/AtREhqjW0D— Simon Maloy (@Simon Maloy)1512660045.0
