Trump Calls Baghdadi’s Wife ‘Baghmammy’
White House spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham has insisted the president was joking earlier today, when he referred to one of the four wives of former Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
In a 5am tweet, Trump called one of the wives of the killed ISIS leader, who is currently in custody in Turkey, ‘Mrs Baghmammy’.
Grisham claimed the reference was an off-the-cuff joke but the president later contradicted her, tweeting that he had used her correct name.
‘Mrs Baghmammy [ HER REAL NAME!!! ] will have the rest of her life to reflect on her support for America’s cowardly enemies,’ he said. @FoxNews
Islamic scholars said it was an insult to muslims everywhere.
“Imagine calling Melania – who last year underwent treatment for a benign kidney condition – ‘Melanoma’.”
Late night talk show SNL dubbed the repetition, “the Baghmammy double whammy”.
