Having just stumbled his way out of the forest in “Yo-Semite” National Park, U.S. President Donald Trump sent the internet into meltdown again after mispronouncing Thailand as “Thigh-land”.
Speaking at a campaign event Thursday, the phonetically challenged president said “shifting production to Thigh-land,” before correcting himself with “Thailand and Vietnam, two places that… I like their leaders very much.”
If the response on Twitter proved anything, the adoration from the Land of Smiles was not reciprocal.
It didn’t help that, in the same breath, he also said he “really liked” Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha (who took over the country in a coup and rigged the election to stay in power) and Vietnam’s government (which is Communist).
Even Thailand’s online news media got in on the gag.
Trump’s leggy flub came only three days after he mispronounced the name of Yosemite National Park in California as “Yo-Semites” and four days misspelling his own home state of Florida as “Frorida” in a tweet.
Of course, Trump never admits a mistake and the same holds true for his zombie army of defenders, like Dinesh in Kansas City, who kept digging as the hole got bigger.
