WATCH: Did Sean Spicer call Canadian Prime Minister 'Joe' Trudeau?
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer seemed to trip over his tongue when he told reporters that President Trump had productive meetings in Washington with Prime Minister "Joe" Trudeau.
Spicer, who was speaking at yesterday's press conference when he made the gaffe, told reporters that the official meeting between Trump and Justin Trudeau was productive.
"Yesterday the President had an incredibly productive set of meetings and discussions with Prime Minster Joe Trudeau of Canada," he said, "focusing on our shared commitment to close co-operation in addressing both the challenges facing our two countries and the problems throughout the world."
Many Twitter users jumped at the opportunity to further poke fun at the beleaguered Trump official, who has been famously lampooned by comedian Melissa McCarthy on two occasions.
Some people jumped to Spicer's defence, saying he merely stumbled over the Canadian PM's surname. What do you think?
