US president Donald Trump has made another embarrassing verbal blunder which sent Twitter alight.

On Thursday, Trump spoke at a Whirlpool factory in Clyde, Ohio, where he griped about corporations sending jobs overseas to countries like “Thighland” and Vietnam.

As the video clip shows, the president quickly corrected himself.

 

As you might expect, the misspeak amused many on social media, especially since it came just days after Trump mispronounced the name of Yosemite National Park as “Yo-Semites.”

 

 

The US president said: “Four or five years ago this place was a disaster. In 2017 Whirlpool won relief from the ITC (US International Trade Commission) once again. Once more, your foreign competitors moved their factories to prevent a level playing field, and to avoid liability.

“Shifting production to Thighland, and to Vietnam ...”

Trump then repeated himself to correct the pronunciation of Thailand, adding: “Two places that – I like their leaders very much – do they take advantage of the United States? Not so much anymore.”

Earlier in the day, Trump launched a deeply personal attack on Joe Biden, even questioning without foundation the former vice president’s faith in God. 

Even for a president known for his blunt criticism, Trump’s remarks stood out and they signalled how contentious his election campaign may get over the coming months.

“He’s against God. He’s against guns. He’s against energy, our kind of energy. I don’t think he’s going to do too well in Ohio,” Trump said.

Biden campaign spokesman Andrew Bates responded to Trump’s comments by saying: “Joe Biden’s faith is at the core of who he is; he’s lived it with dignity his entire life, and it’s been a source of strength and comfort in times of extreme hardship.” 

Bates also accused Trump of using a Bible “for his own cynical optics as he sought to tear our nation apart at a moment of crisis and pain”, a reference to when federal law enforcement officers drove protesters out of Lafayette Square shortly before a photo opportunity in which Trump held a Bible.

Bitcoin scammers struck gold on Wednesday by hijacking several high-profile verified Twitter accounts in what’s easily the most catastrophic security breach to hit the platform. Among the hacked accounts were President Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, corporate handles of Apple and Uber corporate accounts, and a number of popular crypto exchanges. The message sent from the hacked accounts was simple: Send bitcoin and these famous people would send back double your money.…

Denise Welch has branded Piers Morgan a “fucking disgrace” over his attack of tennis superstar Naomi Osaka

The former Good Morning Britain host penned a newspaper column calling Naomi a “spoiled brat whose fame and fortune appears to have inflated her ego to gigantic proportions”.

It came after Naomi announced she would not be speaking to the press during the French Open tournament to protect her own mental health.

Following the publication of Piers’ column, Denise said the media personality’s comments “prove why so many people suffer in silence”. 

Denise Welch, Piers Morgan

Writing on Instagram, the Loose Women star wrote: “Piers Morgan publicly berating a brilliant young woman for prioritising her mental health AGAIN!!!

“Naomi Osaka has bravely withdrawn from the French Open after admitting to crippling depression since 2018 and that fear of talking to press until the end of the competition can bring on her anxiety.

“Anyone who has suffered depression and anxiety knows that life becomes unbearable and you will do anything to stop the pain.”

She concluded: “Piers also proves why so many people suffer in silence because of fear of being called ‘an arrogant narcissistic spoiled brat’. This man is a f.....g disgrace.”

On Monday, Naomi announced that she would be withdrawing from the French Open, explaining it was “the best thing for the tournament, the other players and my well-being”.

“I never wanted to be a distraction and I accept that my timing was not ideal and my message could have been clearer,” she said. “More importantly I would never trivialise mental health or use the term lightly.”

The four-time Grand Slam winner went on to reveal that she’s had “long bouts of depression” since the US Open in 2018 and has had “a really hard time coping with that.”

Piers’ comments about Naomi is not the first time Denise has taken him to task on the topic of mental health. 

He actually blocked her on Twitter in 2017, following a heated row after he’d suggested singer Will Young was a “whiny twerp” for speaking openly about his struggles with PTSD. 

Piers also brought up Denise’s own mental health struggles during criticism of her views on the handling of the Covid pandemic last year.  

Following Piers’ column about Naomi, many social media users reminded him of his own past “brattish” behaviour – not least the moment he stormed off the set of Good Morning Britain after being called out for his treatment of Meghan Markle by co-presenter Alex Beresford.

Piers subsequently left his job at GMB after his on-air remarks about the Duchess Of Sussex led to Ofcom launching an investigation.

AT has a head-spinning list of streaming-video services already in operation: HBO Go, HBO Now, AT TV, AT TV Now and AT Watch TV.

Tuesday, AT's WarnerMedia unit presented a flood of information about HBO Max to investors and analysts.

It will cost $15 a month and launch in May in the US.

NBCUniversal's Peacock will go head to head with HBO Max early next year, and they'll all face down established competition from Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu and others.

A report in June said the company was considering $16 to $17 per month for HBO Max, but an analyst more recently speculated the price could be $12 a month without advertising and $8 a month with ads.

Comcast's NBCUniversal will launch its streaming service, Peacock, in April, which is the same month as the debut of Quibi, a mobile streaming service from Hollywood giant Jeffrey Katzenberg, which will focus on bite-size films.
