Donald Trump says he asked a 5-year-old what to do in Afghanistan and the jokes wrote themselves
To the world of Donald Trump, where the former President took aim at Joe Biden’s so-called strategy in Afghanistan but ended up shooting himself in the foot.
Not for the first time, obviously, Trump invited widespread ridicule after he told how he once asked a 5-year-old about what to do in Afghanistan.
And the clip went viral because, well, watch.

And if you’re thinking the jokes wrote themselves, you’d be absolutely right.
These "conversations" are always conversations he has in his head. And every conversation he has in his head is with a 5 year old. https://t.co/QBGpHom40H

He would be outmatched by a five year old.

Another “Sir” story just exposes that this is undoubtedly a lie. Also, there is a strong likelihood that the “5 year old” he is referring to is his reflection in the mirror

Maybe he should also have asked the 5-year-old about Dunkirk after the President also said this about Afghanistan.

And here’s what the 5-year-old would have told him.
