Is It True?

Donald Trump has said the US army “took over airports" during the Revolutionary War – a conflict which was fought over a century before the invention of the aeroplane.

The US president made the claim during his Independence Day speech by the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC.

“In June of 1775, the Continental Congress created a unified army out of the revolutionary forces encamped around Boston and New York," he said. “The Continental Army suffered a bitter winter of Valley Forge, found glory across the waters of the Delaware, and seized victory from Cornwallis of Yorktown.

“Our army manned the air, it rammed the ramparts, it took over the airports, it did everything it had to do, and at Fort McHenry, under the rocket’s red glare it had nothing but victory."

The president’s statement has drawn mockery on social media, where many pointed to the fact that the Wright brothers, Orville and Wilbur, did not complete their first successful plane flight until 1903.

They also pointed out that the battle at Fort McHenry took place during the War of 1812 not the American Revolution and inspired the writing of US national anthem The Star-Spangled Banner by Francis Scott Key.

Of course we have our very own Poundland version of Trump. I read an interesting article about that racist/sexist/lying/philanderer that essentially said ' anyone who thinks Boris is fit to be the Prime Minister, either doesn't know the job or doesn't know Boris'.

Boris the slimey slug.

Aussies are way ahead of both the UK and USA in that respect. It'd be fair to call Trump the American Tony Abbott:

Urge everyone to watch both videos, but if you can only be bothered with one watch the first very short one. You won't believe it.

One of the only good things of the recent election was that he lost his seat after decades. He is a really dangerous sick politician and I hope he quits politics.

There's another Oz "politician" that is just horrid. Pauline Hansen... She's a hate-filled disgusting racist bigot. I know people throw the racism term around a lot, but this is fully deserved. A year or so ago she dressed up in full Muslim burqa and attempted to make some grand entrance and statement about why Muslims need banning. Even the conservative party leaders slammed her. She's been hating foreigners since she first got into politics in the 90s. Back then she hated Asians, now she hates Muslims. Just the very worst...
