President Donald Trump on Monday made a major gaffe when he blessed the memory of shooting victims in Toledo, Ohio — despite the fact that the shooting actually took place in the Ohio city of Dayton.
Compounding this error, the White House posted a transcript of the president’s speech online in which it left in — and then subsequently crossed out — the president’s mention of Toledo, as seen in the image below.

Apparently it wasn’t even on the TelePrompTer. He just doesn’t know how to read or listen to the words that come out of his mouth. pic.twitter.com/YflfEbfphV
