Trump Claims He Only Called Tim Cook 'Tim Apple' to 'Save Time'

Remember when Donald Trump very clearly, in front of several cameras, called Tim Cook—the CEO of Apple—Tim Apple? Well, since then, he's boldly claimed that he just said “Cook” very quietly—so quietly, in fact, that none of the people of microphones around him picked it up. And now he's come up with another explanation—that he said “Tim/Apple” because he's a very busy man and needed to save the second and a half it would have taken to refer to him properly. Tweeting Monday morning, Trump said: “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!”

9. Well if anything we know for certain is that Trump is all about saving every second in order to work

... it is not like he golfs, watches TV, takes naps, has "executive time," and spends time
tweeting and calling friends.

Trump thinks we are all as dumb as he is.

7. Fine. From now on, I'll just shorten the three syllables of "Donald Trump" to one two-syllable word.

It's so easy to remember, too.

11. Extra letter, extra syllable, to save time... an excuse only a deplorable could believe.

And they WILL believe.

Also, only after trying a different excuse first. Always a sign your explanation is truthful.

19. He apparently thinks "Stealth" aircraft are actually invisible. Now THAT'S stupid.

And it's not the first time he has called someone by their company's name as if it was their actual surname. "Marilyn Lockheed" for instance;



He's an idiot all right. Utterly unqualified for the office and it will take us decades as a nation to recover from the damage he is causing.

20. "became another bad Trump story"

Well yeah, it WAS a bad Trump story, most of them are, but it wasn't an incorrect story. Everyday is fill with bad Trump stories, because everyday Trump does or says something really bad.

If he wants better stories, maybe he should change his dialogue and behavior.

Has anyone ever asked him about the orange skin? For realz? Will it be like Boehner (a well know wine drinker), saying he has a medical condition that exhibits the same physical characteristics as alcoholism?
