Donald Trump has historical marker on his golf course commemorating a Civil War battle which never happened.

Courtesy of Raw Story: 

“Many great American soldiers, both of the North and South, died at this spot,” reads the inscription a faux historical marker on the course of the Trump National Golf Club, according to the New York Times. “The casualties were so great that the water would turn red and thus became known as ‘The River of Blood.’ ”

The battle never happened. “No. Uh-uh. No way,” Richard Gillespie, the executive director of the Mosby Heritage Area Association told the New York Times. “Nothing like that ever happened there.” 

When Trump was informed by the New York Times that three different local historians had said as much, Trump replied, “How would they know that? Were they there?

Well, I think this helps to explain why Donald Trump believed that a slave owning ex-president who had been dead for sixteen years could have stopped the Civil War

So much stupid.

    "How would they know that? Were they there?" Is this the same fuckin' response he used in history class in "military school"? Is this the same fuckin' warped logic he has used his whole life? No wonder his businesses went bust, just like his marriages! The way he deduces logic (not applicable in his case), every thing he touches turns to shit!!

    Trump truly is a fucking idiot...he proves it to us on a daily basis and it's not a bit funny!

    JHC! What has America done to themselves? Trump needs to be run out of office before he has us in WWIII w/North Korea and other countries!

    I deplore the bastard and cannot say it often enough! He is not my president and does not represent me in any way!

    I voted for Hillary and so wish she was our experienced and knowledgeable leader! We'd be light years ahead of where we are today! And, fear would not permeate our country.

  4. In ADDITION to being a liar and sociopath, he seems to be some sort of "idiot" savant; only good at enriching himself. Nothing else sticks.

    I guess he's saying, then, that he WAS there? 150+ years old, wow, Donald, in your case age certainly doesn't equal wisdom....

    It would explain your horrid appearance, though.

    I want to know if little donnie tried to get federal funds to “protect his historical monument”, since it all comes down to making $$$$ for little donnie and of course putting his name on everything.

    If so many lives were lost, then how come he had no problem desecrating the land with a golf course?

    Today little donnie is signing a E.O. that gives religious organizations the right to mess in our politics, more lawsuits on their way.

    2. Trump thinks he can executive order his way around the Constitution and all past laws.

      I think this one is going to end up right next to his Muslim ban; in court.

    Much of the stupidity seems deliberate. To get more news coverage? Or because there IS no world other than what dRUMPf says it is. He thinks he was elected god of the universe.

    ACTUALLY PRETTY SMART OF TRUMP. HIS FIRST FOREIGN VISIT WILL BE SAUDI ARABIA.

    This is where he has a lot of businesses and properties and is welcomed by the leaders there (business partners?). He has to go to places where he feels he will be loved. You can bet First Lady Ivanka is going with daddy.

    I see the misunderstanding. This memorial is to commemorate Andrew Jackson getting attacked. They just got the details (and severity) of the attack wrong. (Alterative facts maybe?)

    It should read "The River of Bloodied Nose".

  15. Jackson could have prevented the civil war had he been patriotic enough to record public service messages on Twitter and tee-vee back then.

    I suppose since that never happened means Jackson was a loser by Drumpf's extremely low, disturbed standards.

    I love the name of this golf course: the "Trump National" golf course! He was prescient in naming it! I guess we are truly living in Trumpland now; farewell USA, land of the free and home of the brave.

    Trump is now religious. The end of his scam is almost here. He must confess under oath in a court of law very soon. The end is near. #nomoretrumplies.

    The battle happened up river at Balls Bluff, outside of Leesburg, VA. What an idiot. I have the video about it. When the signal to retreat came about, they all ran to the river towards an island near by. The river is part of the state of MD, but many could not swim and were sitting targets, so the river turned red. Confeds were in the bluffs above and just shooting away.

    10 cats.
