President Donald Trump spoke to energy workers at the Shale Insight Conference in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Wednesday night.
The rambling speech lasted a little over an hour, with Trump predictably railing against witch hunts and Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT). One claim, however, stood out when the President brought up his long-sought wall at the southern border.
Trump bragged about building an impenetrable wall in Colorado.
"And we're building a wall on the border of New Mexico. And we're building a wall in Colorado. We're building a beautiful wall."
The problem? Colorado isn't a border state. There can't be a border wall in Colorado without excluding New Mexico, an actual border state.
Trump attempted to explain his remarks on Twitter.
But Democratic Senator from Vermont, Patrick Leahy, wasted no time in trolling Trump over the gaffe.
Leahy redrew a United States map to include New Mexico as a part of Mexico, thereby making Colorado a border state and Trump's comment correct. A sharpie sits in the corner, just barely visible on the screen.
Edited with permanent marker, the map alludes to Trump's redrawing of an official weather forecast with Sharpie last month in an effort to vindicate his claims that Hurricane Dorian would hit Alabama, despite weather officials saying it wouldn't.
People got the joke.
Some thought Trump was just confusing New Mexico with Mexico.
Geography is hard.
