Trump Mispronounces Thailand As “Thighland” Fueling Speculation About His Declining Mental Health





President Donald Trump had trouble on Thursday pronouncing Thailand during a speech at a Whirlpool factory in Ohio.

“President Trump is delivering a campaign speech on an official visit to a Whirlpool plant in Ohio,” NPR’s Tamara Keith reported. “He ticked through campaign promises he made in 2016 and he is now going through a list of ‘six more promises.’”



“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.

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.
