Trump Said ‘Titties,’ and Twitter Went Totally Bananas

A verbal nip slip overshadowed the candidate's economic speech

Donald Trump said “titties.” The candidate was delivering a major economic policy address before the Detroit Economic Club today, a speech intended as a major reset of his campaign after a week plagued by major GOP defections and declining poll numbers. Mr. Trump almost definitely meant to say “cities.”

But he didn’t. Not quite.  

See for yourself: 

Of course, this is America, and the freedom of speech is one of the hallmarks of our wonderful democracy. That includes the freedom to pounce on a simple mistake and, through the magic of social media, to amuse oneself and one’s followers on a Monday afternoon. 

For instance: 

Why do we have the feeling somewhere out there Beavis and Butthead are watching this election and saying “Heh heh…heh heh heh”?
