Trump says he did say Tim Cook, he just said 'Cook' really quietly

Just, the quietest, folks. Quieter than Crooked H Could!

Trump was entertaining donors at his Mar-a-Lago Florida retreat on Friday night, and told the audience that he actually said "Tim Cook Apple," he just said it quickly and his pronunciation of "Cook" was quiet.

He later turned to his favourite line of attack, Axios said, calling out the "fake news" for focusing on the "Tim Apple" remark. Axios said donors in the room were mystified. "I just thought, why would you lie about that," one said.

Because a simple mistake like that means Trump is human, and we all know that he isn't.

Careful there, POTUS. Sounds like the Voice You Hear in the Bathroom is starting to say things to other people out loud.

WRONG!


[thehill.com]
President Trump on Monday claimed he intentionally referred to Apple CEO Tim Cook as “Tim Apple,” seeking to push back on media coverage of his bizarre remark.

At a recent round table meeting of business executives, & long after formally introducing Tim Cook of Apple, I quickly referred to Tim + Apple as Tim/Apple as an easy way to save time & words. The Fake News was disparagingly all over this, & it became yet another bad Trump story!” he tweeted.

this is a developing story

good comment:
"At least he didn't call him Tim Jobs."

I find it hard to believe he actually used the word "disparagingly".

There are many, many more examples of him flubbing people's names.

This excuse would be funny if it weren't so pathetic.

Our President is the sort of man who spends days attempting to explain away a slip of his tongue and can't even agree with himself about what happened. I know I'm preaching to the choir, but wtf.

Dubya would happily hang monikers on everyone around him and found it amusing. Donnie hangs monikers on everyone and freaks out about his ratings.

Yep. I'd rather have any President in my lifetime than Trump. And that includes Nixon.

First President to vacate the office due to a psychotic break? Wouldn’t surprise me at this point.
