Donald Trump and the White House have subjected themselves to being Twitter’s ‘donkey of the day’ too many times that we could even count with all the stupid things they do.
During his time at the G20 Summit last week, Trump met up with other leaders from and around the world and of course took to Instagram recap the moments. According to a report by the Huffington Post, the White House and Trump’s Instagram account confused Asian leaders’ names, titles and countries three times on Saturday, prompting jabs that he can’t tell Asians apart.
In a photo with Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, Trump identified him as Indonesian President Joko Widodo. Yea… looks like was just throwing a name up under these photos as a shot in the dark.
Then on that same day, the White House engaged in an Asian f**k up of their own misidentifying Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe as the President of Japan in a press read-out on their meeting. They also had a press release that referred to Chinese President Xi Jinping as the president of the Republic of China. But Xi is the President of the People’s Republic of China. Tsai Ing-wen is the president of the Republic of China, also known as Taiwan.

Social media didn;t take to kindly to the mix ups. People were calling him on Twitter and Instagram.

Trump should be ashamed of himself for not at least learning who these people were. It shows no respect from America. We know the folks who work for him at the White House are not any better. He had one job overseas and that was not to embarrass us. But let’s be real, that is not possible. We’re doomed.
