President Obama stumbled through the pronunciation of Canadian town Mississauga during Thursday’s state dinner in honor of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
“This is always tough,” the president said, before trying a few times — unsuccessfully — to say the name. The audience laughed good-naturedly. Canada is so nice!
Even Mississauga itself didn’t take the gaffe personally. “It’s all good. It happens to the best of us,” the city tweeted.
