Trump Tweets Happy Birthday To The Wrong Person, And Fox News Made It Worse

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.


Fox News praised Trump for his thoughtful tweet, also tagging the other Lee Greenwood:

Earlier this morning, President @realDonaldTrump wished @leegreenwood83 a happy birthday. The singer turns 75 today! pic.twitter.com/mqDoqWALsT

It's almost as if they don't care about those pesky facts.

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:

Twitter users had some fun with the Commander in Chief's gaffe:

Lee the lawyer had an exciting day, and Lee the singer still got his birthday wishes.
