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.

RecircHumor22 Dads Who Went Full Dad For Their Daughters

Growing up as a Muslim-Albanian family with very patriarchal ideas on the way a family is supposed to operate, my idea of what a father should be was a very "man's man" one.

He brings home the bacon, laughs maybe five times a year, and was really into Clint Eastwood and Martin Scorcese movies. Oh, and a Marlboro Red had to be perpetually hanging out the side of his mouth.

Fast forward years later and here I am, dadding it up, and I'm not that, like, at all. The manliest thing I probably do is hit the gym, bro, and not shave my chest hair. Other than that though, I'm nothing like the former generation of "guy's guys" that raised me. Which I'm totally cool with, because I'm already learning special hair braids to try out on my daughter once she gets older. Because her old man might be a North Jersey meathead, but he's going to be a meathead who doesn't mind having tea parties and getting his nails painted with his little girl.
