Donald Trump told the owner of the Boston Red Sox that Lincoln lost the Civil War — Really

Thursday at the White House, President Donald Trump welcomed members of the Boston Red Sox baseball team that won the 2018 World Series.

One of those in attendance at the event was Red Sox owner Tom Werner, who was asked about meeting the president. Werner noted that everything went well, with one tiny exception: Trump told him that Abraham Lincoln lost the Civil War.

You may now facepalm.

Reaction on Twitter was immediate, and at times downright hilarious. Take a look:
