What? Trump says ‘1917 pandemic’ likely ‘ended the second World War’

President Donald Trump knows the best things. If you don’t believe that, just ask him and he’ll gladly tell you.

For instance, at one point during Monday’s press conference, the President of the United States claimed that the pandemic of 1917 probably ended the second World War.

Um…OK, sure. As much as the President of the United States knows or that his rabid, worshipping followers believe he knows, it doesn’t appear to be history, at least not this part of history anyway.

For starters, it wasn’t the “1917 pandemic.” It was the 1918 pandemic. Not entirely sure where Trump is getting the year from perhaps he recently watched the movie by the same name, 1917. Him viewing recently viewing that movie about WWI may explain his next statement that the 1918 pandemic led to end of the second World War.

WWII started in 1939 and went on until 1945. That would mean that, at the very least, the pandemic went on for more than 20 years, killing people in the millions during the war, as Trump claims.

I’m not saying Presidents of the United States need to be walking encyclopedias, able to spout off facts and figures at a moment’s notice. But it might help to at least have a rough idea as to when massive wars that resulted in the deaths of millions took place, especially when you’re the leader of a country.
