One day, Donald Trump visited an elementary school, to tell
the children about his success, and to show off his ‘intelligence’.
The schoolchildren were learning vocabulary, specifically the
word ‘tragedy’, when Trump stormed into the classroom.
Trump decided to help the children learn the word ‘tragedy’,
and asked the following question to them:
"What would be a tragedy, kids?"
A bespectacled boy nervously answers:
"If my best friend died of pneumonia, that would be a tragedy."
"No, that would be a great loss," Trump corrects him.
Another shy young child answers:
"If my uncle got hit by a train, that would be a tragedy."
"No, no, that would be an accident," Trump replies.
A young girl raises her hand. Trump asks her if she’d like to
give an example of a tragedy. The girl nods, and says:
"If Mr. Trump was in his private jet, and a missile hit the jet,
that would be a tragedy."
"Yes, that would be a tragedy for sure.
Can you tell me why?" he asks.
"Well, it definitely wasn’t a great loss, and I’m not sure
if it was an accident, either."
