President Now Getting Mocked for Making Up New Story About 'Tim Apple' Slip-Up to Save Face After Being Mocked About Saying 'Tim Apple'

President Donald Trump has been widely mocked for days after calling Apple CEO Tim Cook "Tom Apple" at a White House roundtable with business leaders last week. Even Tim Cook took a gentle jab at the President for his mistake.

The thin-skinned President has apparently been so upset that at one of his campaign re-election fundraising events over the weekend at Mar-a-Lago the President lied to protect himself. He told RNC donors "that he actually said 'Tim Cook Apple' really fast, and the 'Cook' part of the sentence was soft," Axios reports, after speaking with several donors who were present. "But all you heard from the 'fake news,' he said, was 'Tim Apple.'"

Apparently that was a test-drive lie, and didn't work, so Trump turned to Twitter Monday morning, to actually try on a different lie for size.

Now he's copping to the "Tim Apple" slip-up, but claiming it was just a way of speaking more efficiently.

"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," Trump tweeted. "The Fake News was disparagingly all over this, & it became yet another bad Trump story!"

Here's what Trump actually said:

On Twitter many responded to point out how ridiculous it is for the most powerful person on the planet to get this upset over being mocked.
