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.
