    President Donald Trump has reportedly used pseudonyms on multiple occasions for business and other dealings, and his favourite Fox News channel might have come up with a new fake name thanks to a hilarious blunder that hit the airwaves this week.

    During Tuesday night’s airing of The Ingraham Angle on Fox News, Laura Ingraham listed several runners-up for Time Magazine’s 2018 Person of the Year, when a graphic showing the candidates suddenly showed “David” Trump.

    “It says David Trump on my sheet, but I assume they mean Donald Trump”, Ingraham noted.

    That was immediately picked up by social media users, who started bombarding Twitter with jokes:

    Another user alluded to Trump’s tweet in which he misspelled his wife, Melania’s name, having written “Melanie” instead:

    Other users noted that “David” was not the only blunder on the list:

    Some referred to reports that Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen used pseudonym “David Dennison” for 45 in a 2016 hush agreement with porn star Stormy Daniels:

    Several days ago, pundits on Fox News referred to French President Emmanuel Macron as “François”:
