CNN’s Michaela Pereira Accidentally Calls Obama ‘President Muhammad’

By Brian Flood Comment

After a long week, CNN’s Michaela Pereira had an unfortunate slip of the tongue on New Day this morning. During Pereira’s 5 Things To Know segment, she mentioned Donald Trump taking some heat for not correcting a man who called President Barack Obama a Muslim. In an ironic twist, Pereira accidentally referred to Obama as “President Muhammad.” And just like the Trump incident, she didn’t correct herself. 

But this isn’t the first time a news anchor has uttered a slip up like this: during the 2008 election several members of the media accidentally referred to Obama as Osama.
