Donald Trump sent out his former personal attorney and fixer Michael Cohen to threaten his university into hiding the president’s transcript recording his grades. Of course, POTUS has told us he had a “big brain.” Regardless, he made a huge blunder on camera and before an audience.
The president was talking about building his wall along the border. He listed several states along that border including Colorado. Of course, Colorado has never been next to the Mexico border, New Mexico border yes, but what a foul-up. Today, he claimed he was kidding:
‘(Kiddingly) We’re building a Wall in Colorado”(then stated, “we’re not building a Wall in Kansas but they get the benefit of the Wall we’re building on the Border”) refered (sic) to people in the very packed auditorium, from Colorado & Kansas, getting the benefit of the Border Wall!’
Trump spoke before a group at the Shale Insight Conference in Pittsburgh. The White House site included his boo-boo:
‘You know why we’re going to win New Mexico? Because they want safety on their border. And they didn’t have it. And we’re building a wall on the border of New Mexico. And we’re building a wall in Colorado. We’re building a beautiful wall, a big one that really works that you can’t get over, you can’t get under. And we’re building a wall in Texas. And we’re not building a wall in Kansas, but they get the benefit of the walls we just mentioned. And Louisiana’s incredible.’
Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT) had some fun at the president’s expense. He marked up a new map depicting Trump’s boundaries with a sharpie:
Former Colorado governor and current Senate candidate John Hickenlooper tweeted about the president’s big mistake. The governor idly wondered if he should break the geographical truth to the president:
‘Hey @TeamHeinrich & @tomudall do one of you want to break it to @realDonaldTrump that Colorado’s border is with New Mexico, not Mexico…or should I?’
The former governor also referred to a tweet by CNN reporter Daniel Dale who tweeted:
‘Alert: The president said a couple minutes ago, “We’re building a wall in Colorado. We’re building a beautiful wall. A big one that really works.”‘
