Trump called Apple CEO ‘Tim Apple’ to ‘save time’

  • Apple CEO Tim Cook meets with President Donald Trump on March 6

On March 6, Cook attended a meeting of the American Workforce Policy Advisory Board at the White House alongside Trump, who introduced Cook by his full name but at one point called him "Tim Apple".

But Lemon rolled the tape that undeniably showed Trump making the mistake. Trump praised the CEO for his "big investment" in the USA, but when it came time to thank Cook by name, not even a conspicuously placed name tag could help.

Trump tweeted out his explanation today and used the opportunity to blame the "fake news" media for "yet another bad Trump story!" "We appreciate it very much, Tim Apple", said the President of the United States.

While Trump and the White House couldn't make light out of the situation, plenty of other people did.

After Donald Trump referred to Apple's CEO Tim Cook as "Tim Apple," Stephen Colbert weighed in on the "ongoing national scandal that we're calling Applegate (not Christina)". According to Meltwater statistics, there were positive sentiments across social media platforms - especially on Cook's side, given how he stealthily changed his Twitter name to Tim Apple (and yes, it is still Tim Apple as of now). We have so many companies coming in.

On Thursday, Cook changed his name on his Twitter bio to include an Apple logo, an apparent ode to Trump's slip of the tongue.

"I just thought, why would you lie about that", a donor told Axios. "It doesn't even matter!" one person in the audience said. Lemon said. "You heard the man, he said, 'Tim Apple.' It's amusing, it's ridiculous".
