Bwahahaha, We Gonna Die, Y’all: Trump Claims He Sold Norway Planes That Exist Only in ‘Call of Duty’

The race for the worst president in American history is starting to look like no contest with a wide margin between the front-runner Donald Trump and the rest of the pack.


During his visit alongside Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg at the White House on Wednesday, Trump boasted about the sale and delivery of F-52 fighter jets to the Northern European country.

Turns out that the F-52 fighter jet exists only in one place: the fictional gamer terrain of “Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.”

This. Fucking. Guy. Is. Going. To. Kill. All. Of. Us.

Currently, there is an actual discussion as to whether or not the president is literate, and now the president doesn’t seem to know the fictional fighter jets in a damn video game from the ones that are actually under his command.

We going to die, y’all.

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


The Post believes that because the president was reading from a statement, maybe he confused the “F” assigned to the fighter jets such as the F-35 Lightning II, and the number of planes delivered, 52, to come up with the fictional F-52.

Here’s how the Post reports the agreement for fighter jets between the U.S. and Norway:

Lockheed Martin, the defense company that produces the actual aircraft, said in a statement that the Norwegian government has so far authorized funding for 40 F-35s, and has taken delivery of 10 to date. Three arrived at Ørland Air Base in November, spokeswoman Carolyn Nelson said.

The company did not say if it had an F-52 program in development.

That plane, at least in pixilated form, exists in 2014’s installment of the popular Call of Duty franchise. In the game, players are at the helm of the jet soaring through a canyon, firing a chaingun and missiles in a scene reminiscent of another fantasy dogfight—the Death Star run in “A New Hope.”


White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, aka Suckabee, noted that she wasn’t sure what the president meant, but she’s sure he’s right, and then she mouthed “save me” before walking from the podium didn’t respond to whether or not the president was a “Call of Duty” fan, which I think is a fair question, since he clearly doesn’t know what the hell is going on in this world, so maybe he does in the fictional.

Also, how crazy would it be to find out that not only did Trump play “Call of Duty”—which I seriously doubt because even that game is a little too complex for him—but was also one of the best players in the world?

Senior Editor @ The Root, boxes outside my weight class, when they go low, you go lower.



So in the Kotaku post on this there were people defending the statements with “Well obviously he meant B-52s!”

Ummm that wouldn’t make that any better...
