Apple CEO Tim Cook’s appearance alongside President Donald Trump was supposed to be a big moment to tout the work done by the American Workforce Policy Advisory Board. Instead, everyone’s been talking about it because of an enormous blunder made by Trump.

While praising Cook, Trump thanked “Tim Apple” for the company’s big investments in America. Of course, Twitter had a field day at Trump’s expense, busting out an endless stream of memes making fun of the gaffe.

Cook himself had a brilliant reply and changed his Twitter bio name to “Tim ” after the meeting.

Check out some of these other hilarious responses to Trump’s faux pas.
