I work in corporate contracting and more often than not people are referred to like that. AE "name"+"company". I mean it's a funny meme, but the media is such a circus now
@I Am Captain Obvious, if only the President had explained it as you did this would have been a non-story, but his first statement was that he said “Cook” between Tim and Apple and then tweeted this after that didn’t work.
It’s the compulsive need to lie about stuff that’s the story here, not a minor error in speech...
Guys, he didnt shorten the name. He made a funny mistake. You know why it's getting reported on so much instead of just "Haha we've all done that let's move on"? Because hes such a narcissist and pathological liar, that he lied not just once, but twice, in two different ways, about it. And that is hilarious.
@Lysander99, spot on
Really this is what critisizm of him has devolved into. Omg he shortend a word. He stupid because he called tim ceo of apple just tim. Or apple. Lol smart people never shorten words for ease of use.
@BlazingBowman, but when AOC uses the word "like" every other word, everyone ignores that and hails her as queen. Gotta love the media.
@BlazingBowman, orange man bad
Got to be as efficient as possible because time is money.
Why more when less?
"I thought, why waste time saying more words when fewer is possible."
I said even less words there.
@Tentastic, no say lot
