Paul Nuttall kept calling Leanne Wood 'Natalie' during the Leaders' Debate and got roasted on the internet
Wait, who’s Natalie?
Paul Nuttall found himself in hot water for calling Leanne Wood “Natalie” twice in 20 minutes during the Leaders’ Debate on ITV.
The Ukip leader got Wood’s name wrong while discussing Welsh jobs after Brexit, prompting the Plaid Cymru leader to shoot back: “I’m not Natalie, I’m Leanne.”
And of course, the internet was having none of it:

Incredible scenes. Paul Nuttall just called Leanne Wood "Natalie" for the second time in twenty minutes. Genuinely the best bit of this.— Jamie Ross (@JamieRoss7) May 18, 2017
Some were hoping he would eventually call Tim Farron “Natalie” as well:
Please please please Paul Nuttall call Tim Farron, Natalie.— Jo Phillips (@joglasg) May 18, 2017
I wonder who Natalie is?
And now some can’t help but wonder…
