#fail 2019

Donald Trump

The US President failed so often in so many ways in 2019 that picking out just one of his fails for this new award was far from easy. However, we felt that his typical misunderstanding of something the rest of us wrongly assumed nobody could possibly misunderstand was an apt first #fail winner.

(Did Donald Trump really think Charles owned all the larger sea mammals?)

‘I meet and talk to ‘foreign governments’ every day. I just met with the Queen of England (UK), the Prince of Whales, the PM of the United Kingdom, the PM of Ireland, the President of France and the President of Poland.’
