    That speech was delivered before a coterie of African leaders. In it, Trump lavished praise on the health care system of Nambia during a speech at the United Nations. But there's one little problem -- there's no such country. Trump mentioned Nambia twice during the session attended by leaders of several nations, including Ghana, Namibia and Uganda.

    Did he likely mean Namibia, Zambia or Gambia? Probably, but there's just no excuse for the American President to be so damn ignorant.
    • Just how half-assed must one be to read a prepared speech that cites a nation that doesn't exist?
    • How does a head of state not realize instantly and off the top of her/his head that s/he just "flubbed" the name of another nation and not simply correct it the instant one does it? Is that not what everyone does when they know what they're talking about and get tongue-tied on a word? ...That is if they're paying attention to what they're saying and mean it.
    • Did Trump consider the meeting anything more than "lip service?"
    Seriously. Children demand more of the presidents of middle-school student governments.


    Off Topic:
    I heartily encourage anyone to visit Namibia. Super relaxing vacation.

    Is mispronouncing Namibia an impeachable offense?

    Has your day finally come?

    I don't know. Is anyone suggesting Trump be impeached for "mispronouncing" Namibia? If they are, you should ask them why they feel that way.

    • This thread isn't about Obama's gaffes.
    • Isn't the exception among conservatives that Trump should in every way perform better than did Obama?
    Have you something of substance to say about Trump's invention of a nation or are you only able to consider the world through tu quoque lens?
