Ever since he won the US presidency, Donald Trump has provided ample opportunities to people on social media to talk about him. From looking at solar eclipse without glasses to his awkward handshake with his wife, Melania Trump, the US president has kept people on social media busy. In a latest addition to the series, Trump, while speaking to teams involved in rescue efforts after the Hurricane Irma in Florida, made another gaffe. Accompanied by Melania Trump and Vice-President Mike Pence, Trump expressed gratitude and said, “I just want to thank everybody, the first responders, on behalf of myself, our vice-President. Melania really wanted to be with us, it’s really touched her heart.” Yes, you read that right. Though his wife was standing right next to him, it seems like Trump forgot about her presence at the event.
