Earlier this week, Donald Trump made a ridiculous statement about how President Andrew Jackson was angry he couldn’t mediate the an end to the Civil War, even though Jackson died 16 freaking years before the war began! And now we have yet another example that proves Trump knows less than nothing about history.
At his golf club in Virginia, Trump has placed a historical marker which reads:
“Many great American soldiers, both of the North and South, died at this spot. The casualties were so great that the water would turn red and thus became known as ‘The River of Blood.’”

No such battle ever took place. As Richard Gillespie, executive director of the Mosby Heritage Area Association, noted:
“No. Uh-uh. No way. Nothing like that ever happened there.”
The New York Times informed the alleged president of the historical inaccuracy of the plaque, and his reaction is so typical that it will both make you nod and your head pound in excruciating pain at the same time:
“How would they know that? Were they there?”
Were you there, President Douche Canoe?!
Even better, the fake marker on the Trump golf course was signed by the Liar-in-Chief:
“It is my great honor to have preserved this important section of the Potomac River!”
One wonders, however, how sacred the spot could actually be if Trump feels it’s perfectly cool to play golf on a location where the casualties were so great there was a river of blood. Shouldn’t it be converted into a historical site and donated to the National Parks Service? Of course not, because then the lazy sack of excrement we have as our so-called leader couldn’t make any money off it.
Next thing you know, Trump will declare Trump Tower to be the site where God gave the Ten Commandments to Moses. Then he’ll take a tax write-off and charge you 20 bucks just to look in the direction of his gaudy skyscraper.
