Donald Trump’s tax bill speech Wednesday in St. Charles, Missouri, wasn’t exactly riveting television.

But Rob Lowe — aka The West Wing’s Sam Seaborn, aka the sexiest dang speech writer the executive branch ever did see — suffered through it and had one very specific complaint.

In his speech, Trump used the phrase “very historic” to describe his administration. But, by invoking a scene from The West Wing in which fictional president Jed Bartlet corrects a speechwriter’s use of a similar phrase, Lowe served Trump one piping hot grammar burn.

Lowe is referring to the Season 2 episode “Galileo,” which opens with President Bartlet rehearsing a speech. The liberal, professorial president balks when he comes across the phrase “we have a very unique opportunity to take part live in an extremely historic event.”

“Unique means one of a kind,” President Bartlett points out. “Something can’t be ‘very unique.’ Nor can it be ‘extremely historic.'”

Oh, to have a president who knew or cared about such things.

Or to have one that knew a thing or two about American history. Trump pointed out in the same breath as his “very historic” comment that he had only learned two days prior to his St. Charles appearance that Lewis and Clark began their journey in Missouri.

We guess a Nobel Prize-winning, nuclear disaster-averting president like Bartlet really does only exists in fiction these days.

On the other hand, Lowe did misspell “Galileo.” Then there’s the claim that the same liberal smugness Jed Bartlet, Sam Seaborn, and the rest of The West Wing staff typify on screen has been blamed for helping put Trump in the actual West Wing in the first place. Sigh.
