Donald Trump was really tweeting about the ‘Prince of Whales’ this morning

British D-Day Commemoration In Portsmouth

I wondered if I would get another chance to use more of these photos from Donald Trump’s state visit to the UK, and here we are. Much as I try to ignore Agent Orange, he keeps oranging. This morning, he went on another tweet-spree and there were like a million terrible things in the tweets, mostly about the reaction to Trump saying that he would love to take any and all beautiful opposition research from foreign adversaries. This is the tweet which got the most attention:

Women's Guild Cedars-Sinai's Diamond Jubilee Luncheon

Yes, “Prince of Whales.” Insert WHALE EMOJI. Trump left that tweet up for like 30 minutes before someone corrected it to Prince of Wales. Also: “Queen of England (UK)” is pretty hilarious too. I mean, when I was a little girl first learning how to spell, I thought it was “Prince of Whales” too. When I was 6. Homophones give people trouble. But this is the President of the United States, just back from a state visit to the UK. He truly thought Prince Charles’ title was Prince of Whales. Does that make William the Prince of Porpoises? Kate can be Duchess of Dolphins.

Anyway, the point Trump was making in his tweetstorm was that he “talks” to foreign governments all the time and he’s not going to call the FBI every time. Which wasn’t the question posed to him in the ABC News interview – he was asked if he would accept information about his political rivals from foreign governments and he said sure, he would love to take it. Prince Charles isn’t handing him a dossier on Beto, for the love of God.

    Lord, bear me strength.

    Also, I wish he would understand how to use the quotation marks. Because we talked about “Everything!” makes no sense. Ugh. UGHHHH.

    • detta says:

      Oh but it does make sense: We talked about “Everything”. With the quotation marks it gets the meaning ‘we had no relevant talk about anything whatsoever’ and that is probably spot on! Not that that’s why he used them. He probably thinks the quotation marks stress what he wants to say in any given context (unfortunately he is not the only one these days who has this misconception). Then again, maybe even that is giving him too much credit and he simply uses them because he likes the look of it.

    This is not normal.

    Oh, FFS, we are living in a nightmare…..

    #PrinceofWhales on twitter is giving me life today. It’s amazing.

    He’s such an idiot.

    • PlainJane says:

      Just when you think it can’t get any better/s … I mean worse …

    • AnnaKist says:

      Remember the Green Day song, “American Idiot”? I thought Dubya was bad. It might be time to resurrect that song. It seems so much more fitting now.

      • Mego says:

        Was thinking the same thing. Dub was dumb as a bucket of rocks but His dumbness is trumped mightily by 45.

      • (TheOG)@Jan90067 says:

        Dump-a-Lardo makes Dubya seem like a Rhodes Scholar in comparison. I just can’t believe (still!!) we have fallen so far. Are we EVER going to hit bottom and start coming up for air??

        Between this, and his statement that he’d accept political “dirt” on an opponent from a foreign adversary nation…WTAF???? He’s committing impeachable offenses on a daily basis, and it feels like The House is just sitting on their thumbs and spinning around and around.

      • Juls says:

        For well over 2 decades, the Republicans have put forth Dubya and Drumpf as the best they have to offer for the highest office in the country. Let that sink in. Yet people still scream about Hillary being a sub-par candidate. A woman with decades of public service experience under her belt.

    • Esmerelda says:

      Did Charles mention whales in a “save the environment” context and the Donald thought “Aha! Right! He’s boring me with this whales thing because he’s the Prince of Whales! Whales guy! Charlie Whales!”

      And it’s funny that Charles and Camilla, older and unbotoxed as they are, look a million times better than the Trumps!

  5. Cee says:

    Perhaps he got his title mixed up when Charles spent half an hour talking to him about climate change and the ocean?
    In his mind “Charles The Prince = oceans”

    • PortlandJan says:

      Maybe he was confusing Prince Charles with Fatty Arbuckle, who at the height of his career WAS known as the Prince Of Whales.

  6. amanda says:

    I really want Charles to tweet something cheeky about ocean conservation or just saving the whales.

    • Amy says:

      Oh, this would be excellent – come on, Kensington Palace Instagram account, do it for us!!

  7. crass says:

    The Prince of Whales and the Duchess of Cornchips says the Cheetos President

  8. Jessica says:

    “Should I immediately…”

    Yes, you should immediately. I cannot stress that enough.

  9. Sassbr says:

    If he wasn’t ruining everyone’s lives, this would be sort of adorable.

  10. AryasMum says:

    He tells Stephanopoulos that “everybody” takes information from foreign adversaries. As for notifying the FBI, well he’s seen a lot of things in his life, and he doesn’t think he’s ever called the FBI.

    One would think that calling the FBI is noteworthy enough to stick in one’s memory.

    • Elkie says:

      Watch as the US press singularly fail to ask every member of the GOP whether or not they’ve accepted foreign-source information as their Dear Leader has just accused them of doing.

  11. Chef Grace says:

    Prince of Whales, fat orange blob was probably looking at himself in a mirror while tweeting.

  12. Original Jenns says:

    Hey, if France could have a Dauphin… I’m just kidding. That is light years of evolutionary intelligence before a Trump makes that connection.

  13. Giddy says:

    In the teeming swamp in Trump’s head, he probably wondered if the reason Charles was concerned about the environment was because he is the Prince of Whales 👑👑👑👑👑🐳 🐳🐳.🐳🐳

  14. Casey20 says:

    LOL…just LOL because you can’t make this shit up!!

  15. Horsforth says:

    Is this where I point out that the Queen is not the Queen of England, but the Queen of the United Kingdom. Last I looked she was also Queen of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland….

  16. AnnaKist says:

    The Prince of Whales… He just might be the one who’s been cavorting with my friend, Vanessa, The Princess of Dolphins. And in parentheses, he kindly explained to us that England is part of the United Kingdom. What a prize pillock he is.

  17. Casey20 says:

    Trump likes to be the first at everything so there you go: First POTUS, and only, to ever meet a Prince of Whales….wonder what type of whale was this Prince?

  18. Harryg says:

    Well, in his mind he’s probably the Emperor of Statues.
    I can’t take this anymore, we’re in a car and the driver is a lunatic.

  19. Chrissyms says:

    My husband and I always joke that if you put everything else aside( i know impossible)…he really is quite hilarious. He is shameless too which makes it funnier

  20. Seraphina says:

    Let’s play Madlibs:

    England (UK) has a whale. France has a dolphin. What does the US have (insert noun)________?

  21. hogtowngooner says:

    And of course he has no clue that the Queen and Charles are not actually in goverment.

  22. JRenee says:

    I’m so afraid when I know I’m ad smarter than the president of the united states…

  23. A says:

    I’m 100% sure someone else in the comments has pointed it out already, but the French title for the heir to the throne used to be ‘Dauphin/Dauphine’ which literally means Dolphin, iirc. So you’re onto something there about Kate and the marine-life themed titles!

  24. The Recluse says:

    Argggggghhhh! If I had the money, I would hire a squad of clowns to ambush him at one of his rallies with cream pies!

  25. guest says:

    I’m impressed he knows there is an “h” in whales. Good for you, Donald! Now go play with your speak n’ spell some more.
