Embarrassing Trump Gaffe Results in White House Mockery

Bloviating billionaire Donald Trump’s attempt at a foreign policy on Wednesday is receiving some well-deserved mockery for his gaffe in butchering the pronunciation of the African country of Tanzania, which he should have pronounced as “Tan-ZA-knee-a.”


The embarrassing gaffe reached the levels of the White House, with even Obama spokesman Josh Earnest having a field day with the bungling.

“Apparently, the phonetics aren’t included on the teleprompter,” Earnest joked about the flub.

Late night comedy just got some new material.
