After a Wednesday meeting of President Trump’s US Workforce Advisory Board, the president called out how he referred to the CEO of Apple, Tim Cook, sitting right next to him.

Instead of calling him Tim Cook, it was reported that Trump called him “Tim Apple”.

This had been far from Trump’s first name mixer – he then called Kamala Harris “Kameela” and famously referred to the fire-defined Butte County town of Paradise as “Pleasure.” And despite the monosyllabic nature of Cook’s moniker, it also looked up at Trump.

Twitter, ever keen on a white house gaffe to make memes out, had a field day.

“He just thinks everyone is calling his company after himself as he did” shook a Twitter user. See more jokes in the gallery below:

But did Trump really make a name so simple? Looking at a little more of the President’s remarks makes it less obvious.

“We have so many companies coming in, people like Tim, you are expanding everywhere and doing things that I really wanted from the beginning. I used to say,” Tim, you have to start doing this, “and you I really mean you’ve really made a big investment in our country. We greatly appreciate it, Tim Apple. “

It’s the last part people make fun of. But if you separate the quote slightly differently – “We appreciate it, Tim, Apple” – it reads that he thanks both the company and its CEO. Trump’s signature printing type can make it difficult to tell what he means.

Look at yourself and see what you think:

The US Labor Force Advisory Board is a 25-member group that advises the president on workforce and business issues. Other companies included in the board are IBM, SAP and Siemens.
