    Trump Confuses ‘Paradise’ With ‘Pleasure’ During Tour of Fire-Hit California Town

    President Trump called the fire-hit town of Paradise, California "Pleasure" by mistake during a tour of the sites ravaged by wildfire. (Published Monday, Nov. 19, 2018)

    When Donald Trump visited the fire-ravaged town of Paradise, California over the weekend, he called it “Pleasure” not once but twice:

    “And you’re watching from New York or you’re watching from Washington, D.C. and you don’t really see the gravity of it. I mean, as big as they look on the tube, you don’t see what’s going on until you come here.

    And what we saw at Pleasure – what a name Pleasure – right now.”

    At that point somebody interjected him and reminded him it was Paradise, not Pleasure.

    But then Trump, flanked by Gov. Jerry Brown and Gov-elect Gavin Newsom, said again: “But when – what we just saw – we just left Pleasure.”

    Once again someone in the crowd corrected him: “Paradise”

    Needless to say, reaction on Twitter was swift.
