President Donald Trump’s casual ignorance of foreign policy hit a nerve with MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell on Monday.
In a message posted to Twitter, the president announced that he would be “speaking with Italy this morning.”
Will be speaking with Italy this morning!

O’Donnell, who is a longtime critic of Trump, was compelled to respond.
“No you won’t,” the MSNBC host shot back. “You’ll be speaking to a person whose name you don’t know or can’t spell.”
No you won’t. You’ll be speaking to a person whose name you don’t know or can’t spell.
