Dumbest tweet of the year from Democrat Congressman; responses hilarious

A Democrat congressman from California might have been hitting the sake too hard at Washington’s Cherry Blossom Festival.

On Twitter late Sunday, the last day of the three-week festival, Rep. Mike Honda posted:

Well, not quite.

Honda must have unaccountably forgotten a period of unpleasantness between the two countries – officially starting at approximately 7:48 a.m., Dec. 7, 1941, Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, and ending roughly four years later.

Most people call it World War II.

If Honda has forgotten it (more on that in a second) not everyone else has.

To put it mildly.

What’s really interesting about Honda’s senior moment is the congressman’s life story. Long before he started representing California’s 17th District (which includes Silicon Valley), Honda was born in 1941, and spent his early childhood in an internment camp in Colorado for Japanese-Americans.

The camps were a blot on the country’s history, and maybe something most Americans would like to forget, but it’s surprising a Japanese-American would — given that he was partly raised in one and everything.


Of course, it could just be a miscalculation. 2014 and 2045 aren’t that far apart.

Or, as one Twitter user put it ….

CORRECTION: This post has been updated to reflect that Honda spent his early childhood in an internment camp for Japanese-Americans. He was not born in an internment camp.
