Donald Trump loves to talk about how his opponent, Joe Biden, isn't mentally fit to be President, and those claims always come back to bite the President. This week, during a campaign rally in Iowa, the President repeatedly failed to pronounce the word "Burisma" correctly, and somehow managed to pronounce it four different ways in about 10 seconds. He slurred his way through it, raising serious questions about his own mental competence. Ring of Fire's Farron Cousins discusses this.

During his campaign rally in Iowa early this week, Donald Trump had a moment that sparked a, let's say unfortunate conversation about his mental health, as well as his overall physical health. Here it is

Eight months after his alleged meeting with the Burmese executives. So these, uh, beer Misha Bermuda, they say pronounce it. Berisha a real beautiful,

[inaudible] what Barisma is really not all that difficult to pronounce. Um, you know, as long as you're not an elementary school, he's a fairly easy word, Bri SMA. And it makes me wonder, right? Because if you're just recalling that word from memory, it should be even easier. But if you're trying to read it off a fast moving teleprompter, I can see where you might get a little tripped up. So was he using a teleprompter there? Hmm, weird. He always says those are the devil, but that would explain what happened. But furthermore, what happened in that clip was not just a brain fart because brain farts happen to people all the time. They happen to me all the time. You, if you were a regular viewer, you know that I screw up words all the time and you should be like app. Okay. Wow. Sorry about that.

Anyway, it's this word that I'm looking for? It happens all the time to people in casual conversations happens to other politicians, but only with Trump only with Trump, does he actually try to turn around and be like, no, that's actually, um, that's actually how it's pronounced, you know, in the native Ukrainian, you know, that's what they call it. Bird bur paramecium is totally what the, you know, the people who work there, they call it, you know, a Parmesan. And so that's, that's, that's what's going on. That's why I'm pronouncing it that way. I'm not wrong. You're actually wrong. I'm right. Because I'm doing it the way that, that they would do it, but your doing it the American way. And I'm just saying, I'm trying to add a little culture to y'all is what I'm doing. No, you messed up a word. So instead of you owning it me like, Ugh, wow, that's a tongue twister.

Sorry, folks. Whoa. That's how you get it to laugh at yourself. And instead of laughing at you, people will be laughing with you. It endears you to them. Like how do you, after all these years in the spotlight, not understand that people don't want perfection. They want someone that's relatable and admitting that you screwed up there and being like, Whoa, sorry. I don't know what happened. It's Barisma anyway. Or even being like, Oh, that's just a tough word, but you all know what I'm talking about anyway. Right. I don't know. I don't need to get the right because we know where we're going with this. Something like that, play it off, laugh it off. Let people laugh with you and see that. Yeah. You're capable of making mistakes and you're capable of moving on from them. But instead of doing that, you allow social media to pick up this clip and absolutely destroy you by once again, pointing out that maybe you're the one that's not all there. You're definitely the one that that's not quite all there. Hey, Joe Biden named perfect either. He's a gaffe machine, but you're even worse.
