In a growing number of gaffs, former President Donald Trump added another to the tally today, thinking that former President Barack Obama is…still the president.
The latest gaff comes after a series of previous ones, where the aging Trump forgot what city he was in and got the names of countries wrong.
Today, in Claremont, New Hampshire, Trump told a crowd that Viktor Orban, Hungary’s Prime Minister, called for Obama’s resignation a few weeks ago.
“But the head of Hungary. Very tough, strong guy. Viktor Orban, did anybody ever hear him? Probably, you know, considered very powerful, very powerful within his country and outside of his country, not exactly loved by some of the European nations, because he does this thing,” Trump said.
“But they were interviewing him two weeks ago and they said, “What would you advise President Obama? The whole world seems to be exploding and imploding.”.
And he said “It’s very simple. He should immediately resign and they should replace him with President Trump, who kept the world safe.””
The gaff was called out by several high-profile media figures, including ABC’s Jonathan Karl, holding Trump to the same “gaff standard” that many hold Joe Biden to.
