While giving a speech to U.S. Air Force members at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland, Mr. Trump joked about his audience being “better looking” than Hollywood star Tom Cruise. Trump said:
I just met a lot of these folks, they are better looking than Tom Cruise and we know they can fight better and we know they can fly better. They better be able to. Great people.
It seemed the President didn't realize he incorrectly referenced Cruise’s role as Maverick in the hit 1986 movie Top Gun. Cruise’s character was in the Navy, not the Air Force.
Trump at JBA says Air Force members he's met today are "better looking than Tom Cruise and we know they can fight better."— Ali Vitali (@alivitali) September 15, 2017
obviously trump thinks top gun was a documentary.— Julie Gerstein (@havethehabit) September 15, 2017
Now we wait for tweets in the wee hours about how this is "fake news," though it was recorded and witnessed by many. That's never mattered before.
