Cook, who was behind a nameplate bearing his name, was sitting next to Trump at the time when the president said this: “We really appreciate it very much, Tim Apple.”

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
