Revisionist History: What If?

If British Prime Minister Donald Trump Had Tweeted Out the “We Shall Fight on the Beaches” Speech in World War II:

Tweet 1- …Our Great, Great British Empire, and our French friends, together will defend- to the death- our lands. Even though large, large tracts- I’m talking huuge tracts-

Tweet 2- of land have fallen into the grip of the Gestapo and Nazi rule…so sad. But we will not give up…hell, no! We will go on to the end

Tweet 3- we will fight in France (nice country by-the-way, people tell me they have great wine, but I don’t drink, so…), we will not give up!

Tweet 4- As I said, we will go on to the end, we will fight on the oceans, we will fight and get stronger and stronger

Tweet 5- so strong, I’m telling you, you won’t even believe it! Anyway, we will fight on the beaches and even in the streets if we have to

Tweet 6- we won’t ever, ever surrender, not to The Little Would-Be Artist, Corporal Schicklgruber; you know we won’t, you can actually take that to the bank, believe me

Tweet 7- and even if things totally went to hell in a handbasket, which I for one don’t think they will, the U.S., protected by the British fleet, our great, great boats-gotta love ‘em- would carry on the fight

Tweet 8- until, as God is my witness, we will win so big- I am telling you this!- that no one will be able to comprehend it! We will eventually beat these Nazi clowns so badly…so badly…that you can be sure of!!
