In advance of Trump’s meeting with Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg, the White House released a press release and – per usual – didn’t bother to proofread.
In the press release, the White House wrote that Trump would “greet Prime Minister Erna Solberg of Normay.”

Model Chrissy Teigen saw the unprofessional gaffe and added fuel to the fire with her hilarious swipe at Trump.

While the issue isn’t a matter of national security, it is a testament to the carelessness and lack of professionalism with which this administration conducts business. Of course, given Trump’s sordid past with his own business dealings, this flagrant display of negligence is par for the course.
The fact that Chrissy Teigen is more likely to be straight with Americans than the President of the United States is, to borrow Trump’s favorite phrase, “sad.”
