Trump has a call with NASA astronauts and can't be bothered to understand the one single aspect of the latest spacewalk that makes it historic:

“This is the first time for a woman outside of the space station,” Trump said.
He later added: “You are amazing people; they’re conducting the first ever female spacewalk to replace an exterior part of the space station. They’re doing some work, and they’re doing it in a very high altitude — an altitude that very few people will ever see.”
In her response, Meir made it clear that they were building on the work of many previous women who had spacewalked before them. “We don’t want to take too much credit because there have been many other female spacewalkers before,” Meir said. “This is the first time that there’s been two women outside at the same time.”
