2. And he's exactly wrong.

In Thailand they say "tie", not "thigh".

5. Bizarre.

This reminds me of the RW's defense of Trump calling Elizabeth Warren "Pocahontas".

They claimed that Pocahontas, as a historical figure, was a good and noble personage.

Therefore, calling Elizabeth Warren "Pocahontas" is actually a compliment.

In other words, Trump was clearly paying Warren a compliment and no one has the right to be offended by it, unless you are a sniffling snowflake.

What's scary is Dinesh D'Souza is considered an intellectual in the Conservative Movement.

14. People from other countries, Dinesh.

English is a West Germanic language that originated from Anglo-Frisian dialects brought to Britain in the mid 5th to 7th centuries AD by Anglo-Saxon migrants from what is now northwest Germany, southern Denmark and the Netherlands.

15. People in India do not say Thighland. They would pronounce Thigh like Tie

becsuse of the accents.

So pronouncing Thailand as it should be is actually easier for them than if it was pronounced like thigh.

16. ประเทศไทยคุณงี่เง่า


Its an aspirated "T"

Thai
Town
Teacher

and not un aspirated "T" as in

Cut
Cat
Curt

There is no such TH diphthong sound in the Thai language.

Trump even admitted his error when he pronounced it correctly a second latter
