Donald Trump's tweet commemorating Pearl Harbor got FDR's famous speech wrong, but not to be outdone, Melania Trump messed up the whole damn day.

Melania's official First Lady account paid tribute to 11/7/1941—which if you're familiar with calendars, means November 7th. That is not today. Homegirl didn't even need to open up her phone to Google "Pearl Harbor," she simply needed to see the date on the lock screen.

The tweet was deleted, but not before it could be screenshot and rightfully mocked.

A dude named Chris desperately tried to defend Melania by citing European date format, but Pearl Harbor still wasn't on July 11th.

Yeah, Chad.

She reposted the photo with the right date, but the earlier tweet is the one that will live in infamy.

Maybe Melania coordinated with Donald to make his mistake seem less embarrassing?

Nah, that would require them talking to each other.
