The President of the United States, Donald Trump, has taken time out of his busy schedule to assure his electorate that him calling Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple Inc, “Tim Apple” was entirely intentional, explaining that it was all about time-saving.

Not him losing his marbles.

As you see, doing this saved literally two words. “Cook” and “From” – a time saving of around a second. But say, if you were say it over and over – like a demented cuckoo on speed, you can see how these seconds would all add up.

Bravo.



He then hit out at news organisation that reported that he had referred to Cook as Apple – calling them “Fake News” saying “The Fake News was disparagingly all over this, & it became yet another bad Trump story!”

There you go people. If you want to save time and prove yourself as a time-saving lord, just refer to people as Firstname followed by the company they work for.

A note from the editor.

These are tough times for us all. Without a doubt. But we're here for you and want to continue being here for you for the foreseeable future. THEGAYUK.com needs your help to survive. Due to the nature of the articles that we publish, we find it very hard to monetize our site and have been heavily restricted by ad platforms. This leaves us two ways of making money to keep this site going. 1) We run an online shop which we encourage you to visit and if you can make a purchase and 2) We run popup shops at the prides we media partner with. As you'll no doubt be aware the majority of pride events have been cancelled or postponed for 2020, which leaves our site at risk of closure.

Around 70 per cent of our funding comes from these popup shops. So we have a severe funding shortfall for 2020.

If just 100 people who use this site each donated £2 per month we'd be able to pay for the hosting for the rest of the year - meaning we can continue to keep THEGAYUK online. Please, if you can, consider donating £2 or whatever you can to keep us going.

Thank you.
