What are some dumb Trump Presidency moments everyone has forgotten about?

I think failing to do anything about COVID and just generally being an incompetent, racist prick will be Trump's lasting legacy. But I feel it is important to remember all of the other dumb shit he did but that we all kind of forgot about. I would say his distractions worked since it's difficult to remember all of the batshit moments from his bizarre 4 years in the white house but he lost reelection so I guess long-term it didn't work.

So what are some dumb Trump moments that we all forgot about? Here are a few off the top of my head

-The berated a war widow over the phone on her way to her Husband's funeral.

-The held a "Fake News Awards" ceremony in the White House, instead of...working

-He said one of his major accomplishments was helping to design the Space Force flag

-The threw paper towel rolls at hurricane victims like he was handing out prizes at a basketball halftime show

-That time he saluted a North Korean general

2. There was that time he used a sharpie to alter the path of a hurricane.

So it didn't look like he was full of shit when the hurricane was going a different direction that he stated it would.

10. Shoved the Montenegrin president aside

so he could get in the front of a picture.

Rode his golf cart to a meeting while all other world leaders walked

Confused a major summit meeting with "take your daughter to work day"

Put Jared in charge of [insert debacle here]

Parked military equipment on the Mall in DC

Used a State of the Union address to give Rush Limbaugh the Medal of Freedom

Grifted who knows how many millions by making the government use his private properties

Used our White House to hold campaign rallies, including the 2020 Trump Coronation Celebration, aka the GOP convention

And that's just off the top of my head

and abandoning a promise to help Kurds, I think it was. Even the military was angry, because they felt they'd committed to it and were backing out.

That he knew more about military than the experienced generals, because he went to military school.

If he had lost in 2016, he would have been much better off (as would we all).
