Trump doubles down on 'Tim Apple' after flub goes viral

By changing his profile on Twitter Tim Cook displays a sense of humor

Apple chief Tim Cook has fun on Twitter after Trump's verbal gaffe

Donald Trump in particular seems to spend a large chunk of his waking days refuting allegations made against him. By adding a hyphen between Tim and Apple, the transcript makes it appear as though the president was calling Cook by his first name and then stating the name of the company he works for.

U.S. President Donald Trump said he referred Apple CEO Tim Cook as Tim Apple in an effort to "save time and words", denying he flubbed Cook's name while dismissing it as "fake news".

The president was meeting with the American Workforce Policy Advisory Board last Wednesday when he bungled Cook's name.

"We have so many companies coming".

Trump flubbed the Apple CEO's name during a news conference on Wednesday. "People like Tim-you're expanding all over and doing things that I really wanted you to do right from the beginning", Trump said.

During the inaugural meeting of the American Workforce Policy Advisory Board in the State Dining Room on Wednesday, Trump referred to Cook as "Tim Apple" as he thanked him for the tech giant's help in expanding the US economy. I mean, you've really put a big investment into the country.

Writing on Twitter, Trump insisted that he hadn't referred to Apple's CEO as "Tim Apple" despite a video that clearly shows him doing just that. There's only one person that had egg on their face after the miss-up. Apologies on the behalf of all us mudbloods who thought a mere mortal might have the occasional slip of the tongue across the course of your many hours of public speaking.

Let's just hope there are no such slip-ups next time he calls a summit with Kim Jong-North Korea.
