Melania Trump Tweets Out Wrong Date In Remembrance Of The Attack On Pearl Harbor

Melania Trump sent out a message today in remembrance of the attack on Pearl Harbor — with the wrong date.

The attack, which prompted the United States to join World War II, happened on Dec. 7, 1941, when Japanese planes surprise attacked the Pearl Harbor naval base in Hawaii.

“Today we honor Pearl Harbor Heroes,” she sent in a now-deleted tweet McClatchy captured with a screenshot. “11/7/1941 Thank you to all military for your courage and sacrifice!”

Around 2,300 American servicemen died in the attack, with just over 1,000 more injured.

And others noticed that President Donald Trump had a minor mistake in a tweet he also composed in honor of the day.

National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day - “A day that will live in infamy!” December 7, 1941

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 7, 2017

It's "date," you eedjit. And no banger.

— Helen Kennedy (@HelenKennedy) December 7, 2017

On Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, Trump gets the quote wrong (it was “a date which will live in infamy”) and Melania gets the date wrong by a month. You had one job. pic.twitter.com/1PkfHYgSRd

So Trump gets the FDR quote wrong and Melania gets the date wrong.

Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, indeed. pic.twitter.com/1HQ8Lx8swv
