NY Liberal Donald Trump Offends Oregonians by Mispronouncing State of Oregon He Expects to Win
After winning five liberal Eastcoast states in which he was widely predicted to win on Tuesday, bloviating New York billionaire Donald Trump showed just how out of touch he is outside of the Northeast corridor.
When bragging about his expected wins in the states surrounding his home state of New York, Trump predicted he would do well in upcoming states like “Oregon.”
Except, he pronounced it like someone who’d been cooped up in a New York penthouse his entire life, rather than someone who was in any way familiar to the state.
Trump pronounced Oregon, as “Ore-gone,” instead of the correct pronunciation, “Ore-gun.”
I know, I grew up mostly in Fruitland, Idaho, directly across the Snake River from Ontario, Oregon. In fact, we used to do a lot of shopping in Oregon because they had no sales tax.
To use a “Trumpism,” let me just say, “Believe me,” NO ONE, and I do mean, NO ONE, says Oregon that way in Oregon — ever. And those who do are immediately scorned.
But I’m sure, Trump cultists, worshippers will somehow explain that this shows how politically incorrect he is or other such nonsense.
How does Donald Trump expect to win a state he cannot pronounce?
