Saturday marks the 78th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor that claimed the lives of thousands of military members and civilians when Japanese bombers hit the Hawaiian shipyard in the early morning hours of December 7th, 1941. The attacks prompted President Roosevelt to retaliate on Japanese civilians, who likely knew nothing of the plan to attack America. Pearl Harbor also marked the United States’ entry into World War II.
Now, the current president, a man so shallow that he could never understand the depth of what the nation lost that day, is remembering the anniversary on Twitter, and he couldn’t even do it himself.
Check out the scripted tweet written by anyone other than the president below:
On National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, we solemnly reflect on the tragic events of December 7, 1941, and honor those who perished while defending our Nation. https://t.co/5JEap1aseb pic.twitter.com/pAAPCqaxXS

The fabricated tweet reads:
On National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, we solemnly reflect on the tragic events of December 7, 1941, and honor those who perished while defending our Nation.
People online weren’t buying it at all, and they didn’t hold back in the comment section of the tweet. Others, likely bots, congratulated the president on his ability to post a picture on Twitter. You can see the array of opinions below via screenshot:
