Trump lauded delivery of F-52s to Norway. The planes only exist in 'Call of Duty.'

Source: The Washington Post




By Alex Horton January 11 at 12:05 PM

President Trump caused a stir with his announcement that the United States had delivered F-52 fighter jets to Norway.

Was it a secret advanced jet capable of beating its Russian counterparts? A ruse to fool intelligence analysts? Neither, it turns out. The “F-52” is a fictional jet only available to fly if you’re a gamer at the controls of “Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.”

Trump lauded the sale of the fictional planes alongside Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg at the White House on Wednesday, remarking on the very real and growing defense relationship with America’s Northern Europe ally.

“In November we started delivering the first F-52s and F-35 fighter jets,” Trump said. “We have a total of 52 and they’ve delivered a number of them already a little ahead of schedule.”

8. It's gotten to the point that every public pronouncement from him shows he has no grasp...

on what he's talking about.

The DACA roundtable, designed by the White House to show his competence revealed just the opposite.

Long past time for him to be gone.

13. Someone should question him point blank..Are we dlivering F-52s?

He could say, he made a mistake..or he could come up with another lie..To make up something like that in front of a world leader, a friend, is beyond stupid. It is sick, and Trump needs to be "gone" as soon as possible.

27. Exactly. And someone should ask him why does he think black people are shitholers.

I know the media has to play a game for access, but we are close to real problems in the streets.

24. I guess I'm asking

if this has been done already, or is it something that should be....

Need a hat like this with the rear end of a horse embroidered on it - few flies buzzing around - and only the words: STABLE GENIUS above or below the equine rump.

21. Norway is buying 52 F-35s.

And we didn’t just start delivering them. The first Norway jet was rolled out in 2015 and sent to Luke AFB for training. The first jets just arrived in Norway, but they were Norwegian property since 2015.

30. His lack of any knowledge about anything is staggering. You can see his head trying to

spurt out all the crib notes he has been fed, and just getting it all wrong. Sad.

Our military requested more resources for Niger mission(s) but the Trump administration refused them.
