Days After Embarrassing “Yosemite” Gaffe, Trump Calls Thailand “Thighland” During Sweat-Soaked Rant




Donald Trump mispronounced Thailand as “Thighland” during a sweat-soaked speech about washing machines at a Whirlpool factory at Clyde in Ohio on Thursday.

“Trump is barely five minutes in and Trump is already making false accusations against his Democratic rival, Joe Biden — and he is ready directly off the teleprompter,” HuffPost White House correspondent S.V. Dáte reported. “Someone wrote this speech, someone loaded it into the machine. How are they not violating the Hatch Act?”

Trump then suffered an embarrassing gaffe while trying to pronounce Thailand, calling it “Thighland” before correcting himself.

“Shifting production to Thighland, and to Vietnam – ” Trump said before he 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.”

Minutes later, Trump made “fun of Biden for having said he was in a state other than the one he was in,” according to CNN’s Daniel Dale.




The gaffe came just days after Trump was widely mocked for mispronouncing Yosemite National Park as “Yo-semites” and “Yo-semanites.” Trump also mispronounced wildlife refuges.

Twitter users were quick to mock the gaffe and question his mental health.
