It’s unclear these days whether Donald Trump is doing these sorts of things on purpose. Whether you’re a loyal follower of the US President or stand defiant against the leader, it is hard to deny the absurdity sometimes but if there is one moment the internet is cherishing currently, it his latest run in with Apple CEO, Tim Cook.
Last Wednesday, Donald Trump and the tech-wizard came together in a public White House meeting, for the American Workforce Policy Advisory Board. Joining the likes of Ivanka Trump, the group lead a discussion surrounding the importance of technology-related jobs and education. Documented by several national new outlets, the world soon witnessed what happened next.
In an effort to praise Cook for his technological advances as well as his enormous contribution to American economy, Trump accidentally (now, we say that with reasonable doubt) called the CEO, “Tim Apple”. “You really have you’ve really put a big investment in our country. We appreciate it very much, Tim Apple,” Trump had said.
They say, ‘you are what you eat’, but I don’t think that applies with your profession. Seen above, no one seems to bat and eyelid, including Cook, but expectedly the entire Twittersphere went into a frenzy with the next meme to hit 2019. The prime instigator? Tim Cook himself. Taking to the social media platform, he changed his last name with an apple emoji.
