President Trump welcomed Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg on Wednesday, and, while promoting the growing defense relationship between the two nations, gushed about the delivery of a number of F-52 fighter jets to the Scandinavian nation.
“In November we started delivering the first F-52s and F-35 fighter jets,” boasted Trump. “We have a total of 52 and they’ve delivered a number of them already a little ahead of schedule.”
What Trump didn’t realize was that the plane he bragged about, publically, in the White House, in front of a foreign leader, only exists in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
According to The Washington Post, Trump’s latest flub is more than likely a product of him combining the “F” designation with the number of jets, 52, listed as being delivered in the prepared statement from which he read.
It’s the rare case of a comment being both outdated (the game was released in 2014) and debasedly speculative (the game is set in 2054).
