While most of us know Apple's CEO as Tim Cook - probably we should - on the other hand as per US President Donald Trump, the last name of the multi-billion tech giant's CEO is "Apple". And yet once again, Trump perpetually finds a way to make it to the headlines and what not.
<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Trump just called Apple CEO Tim Cook “Tim Apple” <a href="https://t.co/gTHHtjWvc9">pic.twitter.com/gTHHtjWvc9</a></p>&mdash; Sean O&#39;Kane (@sokane1) <a href="https://twitter.com/sokane1/status/1103421841505505280?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">March 6, 2019</a></blockquote><script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
Trump and Cook were chairing American Workforce Policy Advisory Board meeting at the White House on Wednesday discussing technology that could modernize education and boost creativity among students. While speaking, Trump addressed Tim Cook as Tim "Apple" and Cook, who was sitting next to him, nodded.
Concluding the meeting, Trump said "people like Tim" were doing things he always wanted them to do. "I used to say, 'Tim, you gotta start doing it here,' and you really have you've really put a big investment in our country. We really appreciate it very much, Tim Apple," he said.
Hold on, if you think this is the first time Trump has made such a mistake, then you cannot be more wrong. Trump has this inadvertent penchant for giving new sir names to people when he doesn't like theirs. He made the same blunder last year when he was standing beside CEO of Lockheed Martin, a US-based defense company.
Asking Marillyn to say a few words, whose last name is Hewson, Trump said, "I may ask Marillyn Lockheed, the leading women's business executive in this country."

Another instance we can recall is Trump wrongly addressing Amazon CEO's name. He once referred to Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, as "Jeff Bozo". Further, it is important to highlight the relationship Bezos and Trump share which is nowhere close to sweet and cute. This is mainly because the Washington Post, owned by the billionaire, has been most of the time critical of the President.
It is quite obvious that netizens wouldn't spare or ignore such blunders, and just like any other time they came up with the best reactions in the form of hilarious memes trolling the gaffe.
