Not in his prime: White House spokesman gets another name wrong

  • 15/02/2017

White House spokesman Sean Spicer's problem with getting names right has re-emerged – and again it's a prime minister who's the victim.

Mr Spicer wrongly referred to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as "Joe" while speaking to reporters on Tuesday.

He was briefing media on the productive meetings between US President Donald Trump and Mr Trudeau when he slipped up on the name.

Mr Spicer has previously repeatedly referred to Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbulll as "Prime Minister Trumbull".
