Trump doubles down on his lies about ‘Tim Apple’ despite video evidence showing he’s wrong

President Donald Trump on Monday angrily doubled down on lying about falsely referring to Apple CEO Tim Cook as “Tim Apple.”

Writing on Twitter, Trump insisted that he hadn’t referred to Apple’s CEO as “Tim Apple” despite a video that clearly shows him doing just that.

“At a recent round table meeting of business executives, and long after formally introducing Tim Cook of Apple, I quickly referred to Tim + Apple as Tim/Apple as an easy way to save time and words,” the president wrote. “The Fake News was disparagingly all over this, & it became yet another bad Trump story!”

Trump’s explanation for why he said “Tim Apple” makes little sense, however, because saying “Tim Cook” would actually save time given that it is a full syllable shorter.

Over the weekend, it was reported that Trump insisted to donors at a fundraiser that he had actually said “Tim Cook” but that the microphone did not pick up the word for some unexplained reason.

Watch the original video of Trump referring to the Apple CEO as “Tim Apple” below.

While dyslexia has been mentioned now and then as one of the reasons Donald Trump is so ignorant of what it takes to govern in a free society, I want to explore it as foundational to his inability to learn and grow while in office—and also as a way to link disparate troubling elements in his makeup.
