The stupidity of Donald Trump has created a lot of awkward moments for the country in the past, and he unfortunately finds new ways to outdo himself on a weekly basis. Earlier on Thursday, Trump once again demonstrated to the country that he has no idea what the f*ck is going on, and it resulted in not only a major insult but a national embarrassment.
Trump spoke during an event to announce his new tariffs on China, and the president was given the simple task of introducing the CEO of global aerospace technology company Lockheed Martin, Marillyn Hewson. As usual, he either spaced out and forgot Hewson’s name (as he often does during his speeches) or didn’t even care to remember it correctly (also entirely possible, as Trump disrespects women all the time). Trump not only got Hewson’s name totally wrong, but he also made a humiliating mistake in stating that an F-35’s are invisible because of their stealth capabilities.
Trump introduced Hewson as “Marillyn Lockheed — the leading women’s business executive in this country.” Then, he made this botched moment even worse when he started talking about the F-35:
We buy billions and billions of dollars worth of that beautiful F-35. It’s stealth. That means you cannot see it. Is that correct?”
Hewson, who was probably super annoyed that Trump had gotten her name wrong, simply nodded. Trump said, “It better be correct.”

Hewson may not have wanted to humiliate the president by clarifying what stealth actually meant, but Lockheed Martin’s website blatantly states that stealth “is not invisibility,” despite what Donnie says.
Trump: “It’s stealth, you cannot see it. Is that correct?”
Lockheed Martin CEO Marilyn Hewson: “That’s correct, Mr. President.”

Trump has thought F-35’s were invisible for quite some time, and he has never bothered to correct or educate himself on the matter. Last November, he bragged about how the military was getting more jets that “you literally can’t see” and stated that they’re “almost like an invisible fighter.”
