[THROWBACK] Trump thought Nepal and Bhutan were in India, pronounced them as ‘nipple’ and ‘button’ instead
You might think that this is satire, but it is actually not!
- The President of the United States had to be informed that Nepal and Bhutan are two independent countries.
- He believed they were in India.
- He mispronounced them as ‘Nipple’ and ‘Button’ .
- Twitterati is absolutely ‘shaken’ by the revelations.
You might think that this is satire, but it is actually not! The President of the United States Donald Trump thought that Nepal and Bhutan were in India.
Wait, it keeps getting better!
He also mispronounced them as ‘Nipple’ and ‘Button’. The revelations were made by a TIME magazine correspondent John Walcott in his piece .
~ Here is a passage of interest:
“…In another briefing on South Asia, Trump’s advisers brought a map of the region from Afghanistan to Bangladesh, according to intelligence officers and congressional officials who were briefed on the meeting.Trump, they said, pointed at the map and said he knew that Nepal was part of India, only to be told that it is an independent nation. When Trump said he was familiar with Bhutan and knew it, too, was part of India, his briefer told him that Bhutan was an independent kingdom.”
However, as we said, it keeps getting better. John Walcott further shared that the mentioned briefing took place before a meeting between President Trump and Indian PM Narendra Modi in 2017.
“Wait, seriously, that’s what he said?”, said CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin when a reporter named John told her about the entire ‘nipple and button’ episode.

People are absolutely amused by the story!
This from the self-described “very stable genius”: he thinks Nepal’s pronounced “nipple” Bhutan’s pronounced “button” and that both countries are actually part of India.

I don’t think even Alec Baldwin could make Trump sound dumber than he really is. Trump’s ability to embarrass the nation and make us look like idiots is without equal.

I have no idea why I’m laughing so hard at such a serious issue!

It would be laughable if it wasn’t so worrying.
I envisage the entire planet sighing with relief when he leaves office. Pharma companies must be making a killing off anti anxiety meds the world over.
