Over the past few months we’ve heard some dumb quotes from Donald Trump, but this is… OK, this is par for the course at this point.
During a speech at the Values Voter Summit (more on that below) Friday morning, the NINCOMPOTUS was bragging about what a good job he had done on hurricane relief when he described meeting the “president of the Virgin Islands.”
The person Trump actually met with was the Governor of the Virgin Islands, Kenneth Mapp.
The President of the U.S. Virgin Islands is of course, a huge fucking moron with whom no one wants to meet.
Yep. It’s Trump. They’re the U.S. Virgin Islands. He’s their President. Something people couldn’t NOT point out on Twitter — even ones who were trying to support women with the boycott:
Trump: “I met with the president of the Virgin Islands.” (Note: He’s the president of the Virgin Islands.)

Trump: “I left TX, FL, LA, went to Puerto Rico, met with the president of the Virgin Islands.” Uh… Trump *is* the president of the USVI.

“I met with the President of the Virgin Islands, and he has the highest IQ of anyone, and his mom says he’s the coolest, and the crowds!”

Can the president of the Virgin Islands replace him? Cause he sucks.

This pretty much summarizes the mainland confusion about residents in Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands actually being U.S. citizens. https://t.co/1ixZFbD2lH

BTW, as dumb as what Trump said was, let’s not let it take too much of the spotlight away from the fact it was said to the Values Voter Summit, an openly anti-LGBT Christian conservative coalition.
They’re so right wing, he’s the first sitting President to speak there. So… That’s the President of the Virgin Islands for ya.
