Donald Trump Jr. on Friday mocked former President Obama's 2008 gaffe.

Donald Trump Jr. mocked former President Barack Obama shortly after his father resurfaced the "57 states" gaffe from 2008.
"In Obama's defense he's probably including The Deep State, the Islamic State, etc etc... so I'll let that one slide," Trump Jr. wrote on Twitter.
His post came after President Trump tweeted Friday night: "When President Obama said that he has been to '57 States,' very little mention in Fake News Media. Can you imagine if I said that...story of the year!"
The president then tagged Fox News' Laura Ingraham in his tweet. 
A Washington Post piece from 2011 says about Obama's remark: "During a 2008 stop in Oregon, then-Sen. Barack Obama noted that he had visited '57 states' during his presidential campaign. Despite the efforts of some GOP partisans, the mainstream media quickly moved on; most journalists assumed Obama knew the right number and had simply misspoken."
