It's hard to know when exactly he's talking about, when he alludes to a great America. The 60s, with the race riots and Vietnam War? The oil crisis of the 1970s? The 1800s with all the slavery and the Civil War? Way back when there weren't any white people there? Dinosaur times?
Frankly, it's anyone's guess.
America can be a bit much sometimes. A bit full on. All that flag-waving and chest-beating... yet somehow they get away with it. When you see the British doing the same thing it just feels a bit embarrassing. But that's us; a nation of apologists.
Let us not forget that today, July 4th, is the country's celebration of its independence from us. The day that Americans proudly state how glad they are that they're no longer British.
Here are ten games which celebrate America's greatness.
Its critics labelled it as a subtle recruitment tool - playing up the technology and excitement of combat, while leaving morality off the table. Since that first release, the software behind the games has been used by the actual US military as a training tool for its troops.
Media theorist David B. Nieborg described the series as a form of propaganda, having a "persuasive agenda" and contributing to the "militarising of society".
He concluded: "In the wake of the ubiquitously criticized war in Iraq, America’s Army’s simple slogans and cliché good-versus-evil dichotomy reifies the ‘myth of war’ as a historical inevitable and justified state operation".
All your favourite founding fathers are included - George Washington, John Adams... even James Madison, whoever that was - and it even features a threatening Uncle Sam on the box, pointing outwards, and declaring "I want YOU to know about the Christian beliefs of our Founding Fathers".
Still, FDNY: American Hero was in some ways the fire fighter equivalent of America's Army, placing players in the role of a hose-jockey, extinguishing blazes on oil rigs, capsized cruise ships, and in the aftermath of a subway disaster. Instead of guns, your weapon against the flames included various high-pressure hoses, fire extinguishers and axes.
Also: "Enhanced victim A.I. Makes the victims' panicked state a factor in their rescue". Which paints a rather amusing picture of computer-controlled characters running around in circles, howling, with their arms flapping around like untethered air dancers.
Released, originally, in 1971, its various releases have - apparently - sold over 65 million copies. Oddly, despite the looming dystentry - plus starvation, exhaustion, snake bites, cholera, typhoid and measles - it glossed over the threat posed by the understandably irked Native Americans, whose country was being invaded.
The Oregon Trail II even portrayed the game's "nations" as friendly and amenable to the arrival of these settlers.
No doubt, many players fail to realise the satirical nature of the games - perhaps too busy being awed by the Trumpian political incorrectness that has become the series' trademark.
Rockstar's Independence Day DLC for GTA V features assorted vehicles emblazoned with the Stars & Stripes, a patriotic fireworks launcher and historical musket, and a number of Independence Day-themed jobs.
Not only do you get to play as the president - taking to a huge anti-aircraft gun to blast aliens out of the sky - but additional content is offered in the form of downloadable masks of other presidents; Abraham Lincoln, George W Bush, George Washington, and Barack Obama.
Though the focus was on fun, the developer took great pains to stress its historical accuracy. It's not quite Assassin's Creed III, but probably has more in the way of charm. Those bloody British!
Here it is in their own words:
"It starts with the Pledge of Allegiance and ends with the Statue of Liberty. You will fly, slide, jump, bounce, dodge, search, and solve puzzles in 20 game levels as Uncle Sam. This game will be the hit at any patriotic meeting, rally, or convention. It can be used for promotions and fund raising! Great for use in the conservative school setting, this games actually teachs while being fun. Learn about the history of our flag and its proper display."
