‘Morning Joe’ Mocks Trump’s Yosemite Flub: Biden Should Be Printing ‘Yo Semites’ T-Shirts

The Morning Joe panelists had some fun with President Donald Trump’s recent pronunciation snafu on Wednesday. MSNBC’s Willie Geist and the AP’s Jonathan Lemire mocked Trump for his inability to pronounce Yosemite, which he twice rendered as ‘Yo Semites‘.

“Twice for emphasis there,” Geist said before introducing the morning’s guests.

“Yo, Willie!” Lemire joked. “I’m amazed it isn’t on a t-shirt yet. How is the Biden camp already not manufactured these, started to distribute these shirts?”

“Yo-Semite is — look, he tried, but it does highlight that we know that the President and his campaign have tried to point out that — they suggest that Joe Biden maybe has lost a few miles on his fastball, that he did point out a gaffe here, a blunder there, a misstatement there.”

“Moments like yesterday go to show you, that’s sort of a risky strategy for this particular president, whose at times, relationship with pronunciation is, shall we say, shaky,” Lemire said.

“You’re being very generous there,” Geist said. “That was at the bill-signing for the Great American Outdoors Act, a great bipartisan piece of legislation. Amazing, though, you can make it to 74-years-old and not see the word Yosemite written somewhere. But we digress and move on to more important matters…”
