- President Trump invited the Pope for lunch on his yacht. During lunch, a puff of wind blew the Pontiff’s hat off into the water. It floated away about 50 feet. Then the wind died down and the hat didn’t move. It just floated in place. The boat crew and Secret Service scrambled to get a boat launched to retrieve the Pontiff’s hat. Trump, however, waved them off, saying, “Don’t worry guys. I’ve got this.” The Donald climbed over the side of the yacht, walked on the water, picked up the hat, walked back to the boat and climbed in and handed the hat to the Pope.
The crew was speechless as were the security team for the Pope and members of Secret Service. No one knew what to say, not even the Pope. But the next day on NBC, CBS, ABC, MSNBC, and CNN this story lead each network’s evening news: “Trump cannot swim.”
