Ever since he entered the Oval Office, US President Donald Trump has made many public gaffes much to everyone’s amusement. Be it misspellings in tweets or even blunders during speeches, he has been the subject of meme fests quite often. He has also been hilariously deepfaked and turned into a God-Emperor float.
Recently speaking at the American Workforce Policy Advisory Board Meeting, he tickled our funny bones yet again by referring to Apple CEO Tim Cook as ‘Tim Apple’.

“You’ve really put a great investment in our country. We really appreciate it very much, Tim Apple.”
While it is natural to get a bit confused and not remember the name of someone you don’t know very well, one of the biggest names in the corporate world does not fall into that category. Also, this isn’t the first time this has happened. Earlier, President Trump referred to Lockheed Martin CEO Marillyn Hewson as ‘Marillyn Lockheed’. And Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos was turned into ‘Jeff Bozo’.
People didn’t waste any time using this new material and coming up with hilarious memes. Here are some of the best ones.
Please, call me Tim. Mr. Apple is my father.
