Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters claimed that President Trump doesn’t know the name of his own wife in a recent speech.

San Francisco Chronicle reports that Waters told the California Democratic Party’s women’s caucus, “He’s over there supposedly meeting on NATO. He doesn’t know a darn thing about it.”

“He doesn’t even understand what GDP is. As a matter of fact, he doesn’t even know how to spell his own wife’s name,” she said.

This remark was in reference to Trump once tweeting “Melanie” when he meant to say “Melania,” a mistake that occurred due to a simple mobile phone spell-correction.

Waters has been a strong critic of Trump, recently calling for the harassment of members of his administration, saying, “If you see anybody from that cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. Tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere!” (RELATED: Maxine Waters: God Is On The Side Of People Driving Trump Officials From Restaurants)
