President Donald Trump on Wednesday held his third daily campaign rally after returning to the campaign trail following his hospitalization for COVID-19.
Trump rallied supporters in Iowa, despite local fears his rally would be a coronavirus super-spreader event.
Indeed, there was no social distancing and few masks at the event.

But the focus returned to Trump’s health after he repeatedly failed to pronounce the name of a company while attacking Hunter Biden.
Trump is struggling to say the word “Burisma” while pretending he is saying it correctly. “…Burmisa executives. So these, uh, Burmissia, Burmissia — they pronounce it Burissia. A real beautiful company.”

Here’s some of what people were saying about Trump’s pronunciation failures:
Dude is big time slurring. Can't even correct his slur on the third try. https://t.co/cr5lt4r6R5

He can’t pronounce it, so he does the thing where he pretends it’s intentional https://t.co/bon6iIQAgz

He just literally made up a word and the cult repeated it.
