Twitter is having a field day with Donald Trump’s ‘7-11’ comments

Donald Trump is not exactly known for his prowess as an orator, and many have speculated that his verbal slip-ups are intentional bids for media attention, but his latest mistake definitely doesn’t hold up to that excuse.

While speaking at a rally in Buffalo, New York, Trump referenced 9/11, as almost all politicians do when speaking in New York. He, however, talked about the tragic event in a way no politician has ever done before:

“I was down there and I watch our police and our firemen down on 7-11, down at the World Trade Center, right after it came down and I saw the greatest people I have ever seen in action. I saw the bravest people I have ever seen, including the construction workers, including every person down there, that’s what New York values is all about.”

While confusing 9/11 and 7-Eleven probably will not effect his poll results, as the polling wizards at FiveThirtyEight have placed a Trump primary win in New York at 99% inevitability, Twitter is still finding a way to have fun in the face of possible disaster.
