Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Mediaite.com: “Joe Scarborough Goes Off on 'Sleepy Don' Trump Over 1917-World War II Gaffe in Epic Rant: 'Wake Up and Read Some History!'”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough delivered an epic rant over President Donald Trump’s inaccurate claim that the 1917 pandemic that occurred in 1918-1919 ended World War II — which ended in 1945.

On Tuesday morning, MSNBC’s morning mainstay opened the show with a clip of Trump claiming, at a Monday press conference, that a 1917 pandemic caused sickness in World War II soldiers that ended that conflict, followed by a germaine clip from the 1978 film “Animal House.”

In that clip, the John Belushi character John “Bluto” Blutarsky delivers an inspirational speech in which he asks “Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?”

Scarborough followed the clip by remarking that “President Bluto would probably be doing a better job right now than the current occupant of the White House.”

He then launched into an epic 11-minute rant that leaned heavily on the theme of Trump’s historical ignorance, and in which he frequently addressed Trump directly as “Sleepy Don,” and lapsed into derisive mimicry of Trump.
