Trump is right, where were they and where were they at Gettysburg and I want to know where they were when I had a fight with Darren Clark and his brother at school when I was 9 years old.  If stupidity ever becomes valuable we could make a fortune mining his head.He will go down as the most corrupt and stupid president ever, the name Trump will become infamous and his grandchildren will suffer, while his children will just write books about how bad a father he was.
