Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple, was at the White House for a meeting of the American Workforce Policy Advisory Board, which is basically just another opportunity for President Donald Trump to give the impression he does more than just watch Fox News, stuff his face with fast food, and tweet.
At some point during the meeting, Trump turned to Cook — who was sitting behind a nameplate with his name on it! — and told the Apple CEO:
“We really appreciate it very much, Tim Apple.”

And with that one sentence, Donald Trump proved yet again that he isn’t competent enough to collect aluminum cans for recycling, let alone lead the most powerful nation on the face of the planet.
However, all is not lost, because at least we have the heaping helping of snark that was directed at the president by Twitter. Take a look:
He just thinks everyone has the last name of the company they run….

I give it very good odds that Donald Trump believes the Koch Brothers own Coca-Cola. https://t.co/xUOLbRZS3Z

Me yesterday: There’s absolutely nothing Donald Trump can say to make himself look dumber than he already does.
Me today: I was wrong. https://t.co/ReOgLQAcHG

Donald: Tim Cook
Tim: It’s Cook.
Donald: Cook what?
Tim: Not Apple.
Donald: We have burgers coming.
Tim: Forget it.
