March 17, 2017 – In what has become another alternative crazy quote in the alternative crazy universe that President Donald Trump’s mind resides in, he quoted his favorite Irish Proverb, to… wait for it… the Prime Minister of Ireland.
“As we stand together with our Irish friends, I’m reminded of a proverb — and this is a good one, this is one I like. I’ve heard it for many, many years and I love it,” Trump said. “Always remember to forget the friends that proved untrue, but never forget to remember those that have stuck by you.”
Waitaminute. A quick Google Search (something that Mr. Trump seems to be incapable of) reveals that this is not an Irish proverb. It’s not an Irish quote. It’s not Irish in any way, shape or form.
No. It appears to be the work of a Nigerian poet, who is also a Muslim.
[Insert insane laughter here]
Of course we’ve all grown weary of the weirdness coming from our nation’s capital these days. And today is no different.
