Former Republican President Donald Trump was mocked after he fumbled during a speech and declared that "we have to keep our country gay."
Trump was speaking at his latest “Save America” MAGA rally in Wilmington, North Carolina on Friday, September 23. He was ostensibly there to support candidates he endorsed ahead of November's midterm elections.
Trump most likely meant to reference his slogan "Make America Great Again" but failed.
You can hear what he said in the video below.
“Remember I was going to say, to use an expression, we have to keep our country gay."
“But it’s not, I mean, for some reason, it’s just not great anymore.”
Video of Trump's fumble was viewed millions of times since it went viral on Twitter.
Social media users couldn't resist making fun of Trump after such a spectacular fumble.
The jokes practically wrote themselves.
Trump's rally was attended by more than "1,000 enthusiastic supporters," according to The News & Observer, North Carolina's largest regional daily newspaper.
Trump primarily used the rally as an opportunity to attack federal authorities that have scrutinized him further in the month since their agents raided his Mar-a-Lago estate and recovered classified documents that Trump spirited away from the Oval Office.
Trump claimed that "deranged leftists" are "trying to destroy your favorite president" as well as "our great patriotic movement."
While insisting that there has "never been a president that’s gone through the crap that I’m going through, left and right," he continued to spread his falsehoods about the 2020 general election, which he continues to claim that he won despite all evidence to the contrary.
He encouraged his supporters to vote in November, cautioning them that they must not allow Democratic President Joe Biden—the rightful winner of the election—or the Democrat-controlled Congress to pass any key legislation over the next two years.
