President Donald Trump mispronounced his vice president’s name at an event.
While speaking Thursday evening at the annual Republican retreat in Baltimore, Trump pronounced Vice President Mike Pence’s last name as “pounce.”
People on Twitter reacted by mocking the president — and wondering whether the obsequious Pence might change his name to cover up Trump’s error.

😄 Why does the media always pounce on Biden's slip-ups but Trump just called his VP, "Mike Pounce." I bet tomorrow Pence will change his name to Mike Pounce.

It’s getting so bad. Mike Pounce. He wasn’t even in the middle of a multi-word phrase and it’s one syllable.
