Apparently, President Obama doesn’t even know what is inscribed on the Statue of Liberty, as he misquoted it while calling for more Muslim refugees to enter the country.

The Washington Times reports:

President Obama misquoted the inscription on the Statue of Liberty, ever so slightly, while making a point Tuesday about America’s enduring alliance with France and his contested plan to accept Syrian refugees.

At a White House press conference with French President Francois Hollande, Mr. Obama said the statue — a gift from France to the U.S. — is a symbol of welcome to those seeking a better life in America. Then he said Lady Liberty bears an inscription of “words we know so well.”

“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to be free,” Mr. Obama quoted the inscription as saying.

Actually, the inscription on the Statue of Liberty reads, “masses yearning to breathe free,” not “be free.”

So we have a President that doesn’t even know American history? Great!
