Trump Roasted After He Calls George Washington Stupid

Donald Trump visited George Washington’s Mt. Vernon estate a year ago with French president Emmanuel Macron and that visit is in the news again thanks to a newly-reported account that makes Trump look the glorified used car salesman that he is.

According to Politico when Trump and Macron toured the home of America’s first president Trump’s comments were about his one true love…branding.

According to Politico Trump said of Washington and his estate:

“If he was smart, he would’ve put his name on it,” Trump said, according to three sources briefed on the exchange. “You’ve got to put your name on stuff or no one remembers you.”

Trump also allegedly criticized the size and workmanship of the now antique home, which is honestly hilarious, saying it was too small and the floors were uneven and that “He could have built the place better” and “for less money.”

If you thought the internet would let the moment pass without a thorough roasting you would be incorrect.

Even the over-caffeinated bobbleheads over at Morning Joe were openly laughing at Trump.

According to Politico Trump’s tour guide, Mt. Vernon president Doug Bradburn, pointed out that, considering the name of our nation’s capitol, George Washington was pretty good at getting stuff named after him.
