Trump Just Fumbled Apple CEO Tim Cook’s Name In The Most Gloriously Stupid Way

If Donald Trump isn’t busy pissing us off, at least he’s always good for a laugh. It’s better than sobbing.

The president is notorious for his stream of consciousness blather during press conferences and saying whatever rolls off the tongue. So when he disseminates information, our knee-jerk response is to fact-check him because according to his track record, it’s hard to take what he says at orange face value.

As far as Trump is concerned, who has time the time to confirm accurate information? It’s either that, or his advisors are choosing their battles.

During an American Workforce Policy Advisory Board Meeting on Wednesday, Trump announced that he and Apple CEO Tim Cook has “become a friend of mine.”

However, his declaration lost all credibility when 45 called him “Tim Apple” with much conviction.

“You’ve really put a big investment in our country,” said Trump.

Then he added:

“We appreciate it very much, Tim Apple.”

Watch Trump address his “friend” by his false surname at the 27:00 mark in the YouTube clip, below.

Yes, Tim Cook works for Apple, so there’s a connection there. And maybe “Tim Apple” is just a nickname used among buddies.

A name game was born.

I wonder how Tim addresses the president?

Cook and Trump’s daughter Ivanka holding it together did not go unnoticed.

Trump’s been here before. He butchered Marillyn Hewson’s name by calling the CEO of Lockheed Martin, “Marillyn Lockheed.”

“We have some of our great business leaders — and leaders period — right behind me,” he said in March 2018 when announcing that the U.S. would impose tariffs on billions of dollars of imports from China.

“I may ask Marillyn Lockheed, the leading women’s business executive in this country, according to many.”

Tim Cook, on behalf of everyone – iSorry.
