Were their breasts similar? Let's be honest, he wasn't looking at their faces.

One is in pink and white the other is wearing black and blue, did he think she changed clothes?

They look roughly similar, I guess, but I think they're easily distinguishable if you're paying attention. I have ADD, as does Trump, and occasionally paying attention requires a lot more effort on our part than it does for all y'all normal people. If there's a LOT of shiat going on, we can get overstimulated and things like taking note of details gets ... let's say "prioritized", to put it charitably.

If you're similarly blessed and you're the least bit self-aware, you either make sure to put in the extra effort it takes to avoid embarrassing yourself, or you avoid situations (and careers) where you'll really suck at whatever task you're asked to perform. I think with Trump we have a combination of lack of self-awareness, laziness, and not giving a shiat.

This article doesn't really do the whole thing justice to understand just how cringeworthy the moment was.

From Trump ordering the Finnish President around, to basically calling him stupid for calling on the same lady twice (he didn't), to just the general assholeness of being so sure of yourself when utterly and completely wrong about everything.

He's such a habitual line-stepper, that he manages to push what might a brief episode of absent-mindedness for most people into absolute dickishness.

Or, you just keep your damned mouth shut, and let the peons take care of it.

A good leader knows when to talk, and when to not.

Trump never. Ever. Can. Manage. To. Keep. His. Trap. Shut.

If someone else is talking, they have attention, and apparently, that's BAD, because it's not on trump.

Why would you say that? In a room with Donald Trump?

Isn't this one of the symptoms of cognitive degeneration?

This article should have been written lightheartedly, not seriously.  It's like the "57 states" comment by Obama.  It's funny but the news media shouldn't bash Obama or Trump for these honest mistakes.

I can't begin to tell you all the times I've been mistaken for either Denzel Washington or Kristen Bell.

I'm assuming this 50% because his eyesight is failing and he's to proud to wear glasses, and 50% because he doesn't pay attention to anything that isn't himself.
 
2017-08-29 08:57:46 PM  
... One had a red vest. Is he color-blind, too?.

I always imagined the Finns had an obligatory knife and bottle of booze given to them by the government.

Trump was being an asshole and should be called out. Why would he even feel the need to make a comment even if the Finnish President did call on the same reporter twice? The fact that it wasn't the same reporter just makes the situation that much more embarrassing.

I can find bigger things Trump has done to get outraged over. Let's keep it in perspective, yo.

I'd say this is more evidence that Trump has completely given up even trying to act like a President, but it would imply he ever started.

one wearing red, one wearing black, one younger, one with about 20+ years on the other.   I'm no artist, but I can see that much different in a quick look at the photo...

Wanna ignore this obvious example of Trump's cognitive decline and utter assholishness?

That's fine.  We won't have to wait long for the next one.  Have your excuses ready.

Absolutely unforgivable!  He should remember every reported from every country even if he had never saw them before.  If Clinton won I'm sure President Ryan wouldn't have made that mistake.

They do.. There are differences, but you could get confused if they were wearing similar clothes. The people in front if the reporters aren't memorizing every face on the first go...

The problem is, they were DRESSED nothing alike. One was in red, the other in black. That's dumb shiat territory.

Sweet dog. Looks like she's at least part Boston Terrier. Reminds me of another thing missing from Trump family  DNA. Never had a pet and no feelings for or compassion for animals.
 
2017-08-29 09:19:16 PM  
He thought she was Finnish, but the president kept on Russian' along. Norway was he going to let that continue. To placate him, they need to Sweden the offer, Denmark off the chosen options.

First, Trump was being an asshole when he did this.

Second, it is just a dumb thing to do even if you are right.

Third, this isn't a one off incident. Trump's lack of understanding what is going on around him has been a regular theme.

Perhaps President Trump is simply not accustomed to studying facial features closely when not within p*ssy-grabbing distance.
