Trump believed Nepal was part of India — and he thought it was pronounced ‘nipple’: report

Published

on

President Donald Trump has repeatedly displayed a stunning ignorance of world geography, according to a new report from Politico.

Sources tell the publication that, while preparing for a meeting with the prime minister of India, Trump had no idea how to pronounce the name of Asian nation Nepal, which he initially pronounced as “nipple.”

What’s more, Trump didn’t seem to understand that Nepal was its own separate country and instead assumed it was just part of India.

“He didn’t know what those were,” one source tells Politico. ” He thought it was all part of India. He was like, ‘What is this stuff in between and these other countries?'”

In addition to mangling the pronunciation of Nepal, Trump also reportedly bungled pronouncing the name of the nearby nation of Bhutan, which he believed was pronounced “button.”

Trump last year also infamously invented an African country he called “Nambia” during a United Nations lunch meeting with African leaders.

The report says that prosecutors are also looking into his work for a city mayor in the country.

Giuliani has been a central figure in Trump's apparent scheme to extort the Ukrainian president into helping him dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden, holding military aid appropriated by Congress hostage until the country investigates "corruption."

Police officer sues Ava Duvernay for depiction of interrogation technique used on the Central Park Five

Published

on

On Monday, TMZ reported that former police officer John Reid is suing director Ava Duvernay over her depiction of the "Reid Technique" used against the young, Black suspects known as the Central Park Five in the Netflix film "When They See Us."

Reid is claiming defamation, insisting that the film's depiction of his methods are wrong.

"You squeezed statements out of them after 42 hours of questioning and coercing, without food, bathroom breaks, withholding parental supervision," said a prosecution staffer to a detective in the movie. "The Reid Technique has been universally rejected. That's truth to you."
