George W. Bush is smiling down at all of us today for thinking he may have been the dumbest president in the history of America.
Trump participated in an interview with Fox Business reporter Maria Bartiromo where he recounted the dessert and missile attack he shared with Chinese president Xi Jinping.
He also forgot which country he bombed.

TRUMP: I was sitting at the table, we had finished dinner. We're now having dessert and we had the most beautiful piece of chocolate cake that you've ever seen and President Xi was enjoying it. [...]
So what happens is I said 'we've just launched 59 missiles heading to Iraq...'
BARTIROMO: ...headed to Syria?
TRUMP: Yes, heading toward Syria.
BARTIROMO: How did he react?
TRUMP: He paused for 10 seconds and then he asked the interpreter to please say it again.
Can you even imagine the Chinese president's inner monologue as he's informed that the U.S. just committed an act of war over chocolate cake?
I simply don't believe Xi said anything that Trump claims he said.
