Name confusion: Obama calls P-Noy "Niño" and "Nonoy"
Pinoy nicknames are tough...unless you’re Pinoy, which he isn’t.
Maybe he got confused by P-Noy’s name because he hadn’t eaten yet.
We’re sure it’s an honest mistake.
ABS-CBNnews.com reports: "During his joint press briefing with President Noynoy Aquino on Monday afternoon and state dinner a few hours later, US President Barack Obama referred to the Philippine leader as either ’Niño’ or ’Nonoy.’"
Obama’s gaffe allegedly got some angry comments on Twitter and other social media platforms.
There should be no question that Obama’s OK with the nasty comments. After all, that’s what democracy is all about-giving everyone the right to render themselves beyond civility.
