Trump calls Apple CEO Time Cook - ‘Tim Apple’

Did Tim Cook Become Tim'Apple After Donald Trump's Gaffe? Twitter is Proof

To be fair, Trump did get Tim Cook's name right in the beginning.

Cook was at the White House after attending an American Workforce Policy Advisory Board meeting, which afterwards saw Trump accidentally refer to the CEO as "Tim Apple".

This didn't succeed in changing the minds of countless people who were convinced Trump slipped up while talking about the Apple CEO, who came out publicly in 2014.

Cook's handle on Twitter was "Tim Cook" until Wednesday, according to the Wayback Machine internet archive.

At the end of speaking, Trump said, "We really appreciate it very much, Tim Apple".

If you can say one thing about Apple CEO, it's that he has a great sense of humor. Nearly exactly a year ago, Trump called Marillyn Hewson, the CEO of aerospace firm Lockheed Martin, "Marillyn Lockheed". But we're opening it up.

The Remote Play app has been available for years on Android and Sony is finally making it available to iPhone and iPad users. Remote Play was already available on Android devices but for some dumb reason, it is still restricted to Sony Smartphones.

Unsurprisingly, Twitter users lapped up Trump's meme-inducing blunder.

In March a year ago, he referred to Lockheed Martin CEO Marillyn Hewson as "Marillyn Lockheed".

While this predictably brought scorn from the media, it's something we can all welcome wholeheartedly.

Sure, the President is required to memorise a lot of names but doesn't warrant him the leeway to mix up names so often.

A seamless segue from talking about technology education and jobs, to talking about the "invasion" from Mexico.

This isn't the first time Donald Trump flubbed the introduction of a noted public figure.

One killed, at least 29 injured in grenade attack in occupied Kashmir
In an ensuing dogfight at least one Indian aircraft was shot down and the pilot was captured by Pakistan. The IGP said the police is collecting the evidence and "we are sure to hunt him down (the attacker)".

Cook has had a mixed relationship with the White House, participating in other meetings with Trump but also criticizing the president's immigration policies.
