Trump is tripping all over himself right now. Still trying to recover from 'Tim Apple' mistake.

The weekend break is officially over and what's the first thing out of President Trump's mouth on Monday morning? Not the economy, not his wall. Heck, nothing  about "evil Democrats" or "Hillary Clinton" even. Instead, he's still trying to get over something that happened five days ago at the first American Workforce Policy Advisory Board meeting held with the nation's top CEOs.

One of those CEOs was Tim Cook, who Trump infamously referred to as "Tim Apple," and you can be sure that video made its rounds across the internet fairly well.

It must have really got under his skin because now he's still trying to excuse it. And, he's tripping all over himself trying to get past his mistake.

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

So, it's the "Fake news" media fault that everyone and their brother thought this was funny? Sorry, Trump.

The thing that also makes this even funnier is the fact that Trump called Tim Cook "a very good friend" just before doing this. The truth is, Mr. Cook is a big Hillary Clinton supporter, and Trump and him don't get along, at all. Now Trump is trying to cozy up to him to make it appear that he's good at getting along with other top business leaders, but it isn't working out so well.
