One day, Donald Trump visited an elementary school, to tell the children about his success, and to show off his ‘intelligence’.
The schoolchildren were learning vocabulary, specifically the word ‘tragedy’, when the famous businessman stormed into the classroom.
Trump decided to help the children learn the word ‘tragedy’, and asked the following question to them:
“What would be a tragedy, kids?”
A bespectacled boy nervously answers:
“If my best friend died of pneumonia, that would be a tragedy.”
“No, that would be a great loss,” Trump corrects him.
Another shy young child answers:
“If my uncle got hit by a train, that would be a tragedy.”
“No, no, that would be an accident,” Trump replies.
A young girl raises her hand. The wealthy businessman asks her if she’d like to give an example of a tragedy. The girl nods, and says:
“If Mr. Trump was in his private jet, and a missile hit the jet, that would be a tragedy.”
“Yes, that would be a tragedy for sure. Can you tell me why?” The businessman asks.
“Well, it definitely wasn’t a great loss, and I’m not sure if it was an accident, either,”
