Donald Trump was buried in ridicule on Sunday afternoon after boasting on Twitter that he was the recipient of the prestigious "Bay of Pigs Award," which, incidentally, doesn't exist as noted by CNN fact-checker Daniel Dale.


According to the president, "Sleepy Joe Biden has spent 47 years in politics being terrible to Hispanics. Now he is relying on Castro lover Bernie Sanders to help him out. That won’t work! Remember, Miami Cubans gave me the highly honored Bay of Pigs Award for all I have done for our great Cuban Population!"

As Dale noted, "For those confused by Trump’s claim he got the ‘highly honored Bay of Pigs Award’: He got an endorsement in 2016 from the Bay of Pigs Veterans Association. It’s not an award. He has a long history of turning endorsements and other non-awards into awards.”

That didn't keep Twitter commenters for piling on the president for being proud of a (fake) award named after a botched invasion of Cuba in 1961 that cast a cloud over President John Kennedy's administration.

As one commenter pointed out, "Bay of Pigs was a failed US invasion. You do get a lot of fail trophies, dude."
