Donald Trump is of the belief that he is God’s gift to a lot of things — women, science, history, the United States of America. I could really go on and on. He doesn’t seem to think that there’s anyone smarter than him about anything, anywhere, ever — which really never works out well for him because, frankly, he’s a fucking idiot.

That doesn’t stop him from opening that big, fat mouth of his, though.

It’s become a rather regular occurrence for Trump to ramble on about things when in reality he has absolutely no freaking clue what in the hell he’s talking about. He does it all the time, really. And usually, he’s surrounded himself with nothing but sycophantic asswipes who refuse to critique him in any way — likely because they don’t want to spend the rest of their lives flipping burgers.


But every once in awhile Donnie has no choice but to travel out into the real world, full of real people who know and understand just how full of shit he truly is and they have absolutely no qualms with letting him know about it.

Trump sat down today, flanked by his princess Ivanka and VP Mike Pence, and contacted the International Space Station to congratulate astronauts Jessica Meir and Christina Koch on their successful all-female spacewalk outside of the craft.

However, he immediately stuck his foot in his mouth when he applauded the women for being the “first-ever female spacewalkers.”

It took a bit of time before anyone from the spacecraft could respond, but as soon as they could Meir was quick to inform Trump that they were, in fact, not the first women to successfully tackle the feat — the first took place in 1984 and there have been 14 more since then.

“This is the first time for a woman outside of the space station,” Trump stated as he glared into the camera.

“You are amazing people; they’re conducting the first-ever female spacewalk to replace an exterior part of the space station,” he continued. “They’re doing some work, and they’re doing it in a very high altitude — an altitude that very few people will ever see.”

Meir then chimed in and corrected Trump, explaining that while it was the first time that two women had been outside the craft at the same time, it was not the first female spacewalk.

“We don’t want to take too much credit because there have been many other female spacewalkers before,” Meir stated. “This is the first time that there’s been two women outside at the same time.”

Have no doubt, Trump will be crying over his iPhone later after this. If there’s one thing that man can’t stand, it’s a powerful woman that’s willing to stand up to him.
