To watch Pavarotti's amazing last performance of "Nessun Dorma" at the 2006 Olympics on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O0Sx5lbVlQA
Is The Donald really this oblivious to the entire world? And history? And, well, everything?
Two and a half months after embarrassing himself by implying that Frederick Douglass was still alive, he embarrasses himself by dropping the name of yet another famous person who has passed away – Luciano Pavarotti.
He didn’t just imply that Pavarotti is still living today (he died of pancreatic cancer ten years ago).
While he and Italy’s prime minister held a joint press conference, he must have decided to praise Italy for the gift of Pavarotti (or rather, he decided to use Pavarotti to puff himself up and appear more superior) by saying:
“Pavarotti, friend of mine, great friend of mine.”
First off, as stated before, Pavarotti is no longer gracing the world with his amazing tenor voice.
But it’s also not likely that Pavarotti was any friend of Trump’s at all.
