Yosemite along with Arkansas often comes up on threads about words/names that are often mispronounce because a lot of us on MN are not American, so it's all good.
BUT, the US president mispronouncing Yosemite is a bridge too far at this point and I'm having to clean up my living room at this late hour due to my head exploding.
He has got to be trolling us, surely?

How did he pronounce it, Yo-smite?

safariboot Wed 05-Aug-20 23:28:34

And he's got the nucular codes!

Did you see the interview yesterday? Absolutely mind boggling. His graphs looked like ones you get in primary school to colour in.

I don't know the correct way to pronounce Yosemite, but would guess at Yoss-E-might?

I know Arkansas is Ark-Can-Saw though!

The correct pronunciation is Yo-sem-i-tee.

FYI, I am uneducated and barely scraped through my GCSEs so I'm not the sort to point out bad grammar /spelling because I know no better - but then, I'm not the fucking president of the USA.

How did Trump say It?

DioneTheDiabolist Wed 05-Aug-20 23:34:14

Did the guy not watch cartoons?

Whatthebloodyell Wed 05-Aug-20 23:34:49

Yo-sem-it-tee, but he was saying Yo-semite apparently. But it seems that he can do and say whatever the fuck he likes and his supporters cheer him on.

Remember that looney toons character what was his name? Yosemite Sam.

QuestionableMouse Wed 05-Aug-20 23:35:06

After everything he's done does that really surprise you?

He reminds me of my aunt who has dementia. Scary that he's running a country.

The nuclear codes have a good fail safe so he can't just decide to nuke something, thank god.

JohnnyMcGrathSaysFuckOff Wed 05-Aug-20 23:35:07

Well he can't even spell Trumpf so don't know what you expect!

LaMarschallin Wed 05-Aug-20 23:36:42

It came as a revelation to me that the cartoon character wasn't "Yo! Samitty-Sam" but "Yosemite Sam".

But I'm British and was about 9 when it struck me.
And I wasn't POTUS.

Trump is the Antichrist.


Im in UK i only learnt about the place because of this video. Enjoy!

Does anybody know how to link Yosemite Sam, because once you see him (if you are of a certain age) it should all fall into place grin.

The first thing I thought, too!

Northernsoullover Wed 05-Aug-20 23:41:31

It was only recently that I discovered that Yo Sammety Sam was actually Yosemite Sam. blush

Northernsoullover Wed 05-Aug-20 23:43:02

I did put a picture up hmm

Northernsoullover Wed 05-Aug-20 23:43:38

I knew it would post twice! I refreshed a million times too sad

Doingtheboxerbeat Wed 05-Aug-20 23:43:42

And yes I know how dim he is but he must be surrounded by smarter people who can blatantly see the glaring fuck ups and fear for the intelligence of the future generations 🤷‍♀️.

Me too blush, but I'm guessing you didn't spend your summer holidays there?
