Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

President Donald Trump insists that he did not mistakenly refer to Apple CEO Tim Cook as "Tim Apple," even though the bungled name could be heard on video, Axios reported.

The White House's own transcript noted that the president said "Tim -- Apple" during a meeting with business leaders last week.

On Friday, Trump told a group of GOP donors at his golf resort that he said "Tim Cook Apple," but that the "Cook" was really fast, and that "fake news" reported it as "Tim Apple," per Axios.

It's ok. Such confusion happens a lot.
Tim Apple messed up Trump's name too. Called him Donald Racist.
Mark Facebook also got tripped up and referred to him as President Serialsexualassaulter.
Jeff Amazon called him Donnie Russianmoneylaunderer.

Trump is now admitting that he did indeed call Tim Cook, 'Tim Apple', but it was not a mistake, he was merely conserving the number of words that he was using that day. After all, running a fiscal deficit is understandable, but exceeding your word budget, now that's something that needs to be avoided, PERIOD!

Trump Now Admits He Actually Did Call Tim Cook ‘Tim Apple'

Tim + Apple = Tim Apple. "An easy way to save time & words."

#3 somebody should advise him to cut out the self aggrandizing and he'll be waaaay faster.

In fact, we'd get some much needed silence from the Orange Schittstain.

#4 Because Trump is such a sensitive little snowflake, and is so obsessed with his self-image, that he can't allow any story about himself, no matter how trivial, to go unchecked without some fake countervailing story that 30% of Americans will believe.
