President Donald Trump on Friday completely flubbed a speech in front of the National Rifle Association as he struggled to read a long word from his teleprompter.
During his speech before the NRA, Trump announced that the United States had sent word to the United Nations that it was rejecting an international arms trade treaty that was signed by former President Barack Obama, but was never signed into law.
In denouncing the treaty, Trump tried to claim that it would have infringed upon American gunowners’ rights.
“This treaty threatened your…,” Trump began before taking a long pause to stare at the teleprompter. “Subjugate… and you know exactly what’s going on here, your rights.”

Trump thinks he’s ‘the chosen one’ for one really preposterous reason
Even for a bottomless pit of narcissism like Donald Trump, Wednesday was an exceptional day for self-aggrandizement. Early in the day, Trump tweeted quotes from one of his more sycophantic — and unhinged — followers, Wayne Allyn Root, calling Trump the "King of Israel" and "the second coming of God." Later that day, when speaking to reporters, Trump embraced the prophet identity again, calling himself "the Chosen One," in response to a question about trade dealings with China.
