During Tuesday night’s East Coast airing of The Ingraham Angle on Fox News, Laura Ingraham and guests were breaking down Time’s Person of the Year, when a graphic showing the runner-ups included one “David” Trump, instead of President Donald Trump.
“It says David trump on my sheet, but I assume they mean Donald Trump,” Ingraham pointed out with a bit of a chuckle.
As is the case with errors on national television, viewers took notice on Twitter.

#davidtrump is the guy that lives inside individual_1’s head. (This explains the conflicting statements.)

For a second there, I thought maybe it was like an episode of “Young & the Restless” where there’s a secret good twin who finally escapes from the basement.

There is one connection Trump has to the name David, as he reportedly used the alias “David Dennison” in the past, which was pointed out in Stormy Daniels’s lawsuit against the president.

Fox News has apparently combined "Donald Trump" and his alter ego "David Dennison" into a superhero known as "Individual 1"https://t.co/V00OABwH4m
