Country music singer Lee Greenwood, who composed “God Bless the USA,” celebrated a milestone the other day. Greenwood turned 75, and President Trump tried to join in the birthday wishes on Twitter.
The President tweeted:
President Trump took time out of his busy day to send birthday wishes to one of the handful of musicians who agreed to perform at his inauguration. What a lovely gesture.
The only problem? He addressed his tweet to this Lee Greenwood:
It turns out @leegreenwood83 is a New York-based lawyer who prefers anti-Trump demonstrations to inaugurations. Awkward.
Trump deleted the tweet and reposted it to the proper Lee Greenwood within an hour:
But it was too late. Twitter had the receipts for both Trump and Fox News:
Lee the lawyer had an exciting day, and Lee the singer still got his birthday wishes.
