During a speech about the Revolutionary War during Fourth of July festivities in D.C., President Trump said we “took over airports,” and the Internet responded accordingly.
During his July 4th speech, President Donald Trump says American forces “took over the airports” during the US War of Independence in the late 18th century.

Being stuck on the tarmac when you should be out fighting the British can really put a damper on your Revolutionary War plans.
Our flight has been delayed again. Waiting on the tarmac, our supplies of honey roasted peanuts and Fresca are almost depleted. We are talking about rebellion against first class. Please tell the children I love them.#RevolutionaryWarAirportStories

This soldier is having a rough time in the flight trenches. And once the Cinnabon closes, it’s every man for himself.
My Dearest Emma,
Conditions are horrid. The yanks have closed down the cinnabon in the terminal. Savages. I cannot even find a decent cup of tea!

The British never had a chance.
Little-Known Fact: We won because so many British soldiers couldn't fit their muskets in the overhead bin on their flights over.

Hurry and grab your Revolutionary War T-shirts before they sell out. Only a select few with the text “We Took Over the Airports” are still available.

Take off those buckled shoes and leave your muskets at home. Revolutionary War weaponry is not allowed on commercial or international flights.
Put ye powder hornes and buckled shoes in ye olde bins. Poultices over 3 ounces must be left with the magistrate and can be retrieved at ye postmaster’s office upon return. Muskets and pipes are stryctly forbidden on board ye airecrafte. #RevolutionaryWarAirportStories
