Human beings make mistakes, but not Trump, according to Trump, if you’ve watched his actions and rhetoric over his first two years as president. Even when there is clear video of him making a mistake, he apparently still won’t admit it.
Earlier this month, while meeting with Apple CEO Tim Cook, the president clearly called the man leading one of the world’s most valuable companies, “Tim Apple.” It was as clear as day.
There were no words between “Tim” and “Apple” and no way for Mr. Trump to deny saying what he said, as there were several cameras in the room as the name flowed from his own lips.

Yet, despite what you saw above, Trump is now claiming that he didn’t make this rather minor mistake, which would have no impact what-so-ever on his presidency.
According to Axios, while entertaining RNC donors at Mar-a-Lago this weekend, Mr. Trump was heard saying that the media is once again spreading “fake news” when reporting about his “Tim Apple” remark.
The president told the donors that he actually said the Apple CEO’s full name and company name, “Tim Cook Apple,” really fast, but the media reported him saying only “Tim Apple”.
According to Axios, many who heard the president clearly lying about this were baffled.
“I just thought, why would you lie about that. It doesn’t even matter!” one person in the audience said.
Yes, it appears that the president of the United States of America is telling his supporters that what they saw with their own eyes, and heard with their own ears, is not to be trusted, and that his version of the story is the real truth.
This is only a minor lie, which has absolutely no impact on this nation, but if the president is willing to lie about this, then why would be not lie about potential contacts with Russian officials during the 2016 campaign, or what the Saudis told him regarding Jamal Khashoggi?
