Saying That Trump is as Dumb as a Heap of Gravel Opens One Up to Being Sued for Defamation by Rocks

In the face of growing bipartisan anger, President Donald Trump defended his decision to allow a Turkish offensive in northern Syria by saying that the U.S.-allied Kurds — who led the ground campaign against the Islamic State in Syria and are under Turkish attack — did not help the U.S. during World War II.

“Now the Kurds are fighting for their land,” Trump told reporters during a press conference on Wednesday night. “They didn’t help us in the Second World War, they didn’t help us with Normandy, for example.”
One might point out that the French helped us during the Revolutionary War even though we weren't there for them during the Battle of Agincourt. Trump's comment is so glaringly idiotic that it's not worth the debate.

The fact that Trump has mastered aerobic respiration is a wonder.

The Kurds did not directly help the US in WWII, but they were part of the Iraqi Levies under the Brits in that time frame.
