At his rally last night, D----d T---p distinguished "Christians, Jews,
Catholics, Muslims."  Can you find the hidden error?

T---p pronounces "Muslim" with / U /, a pronunciation recognized by
both Oxford and Merriam-Webster.

However (and this is the point), there was mild bemusement on CNN when
a T---p supporter on video warned that President Obama was a "radical
Muslim who hates America." The high-paid anchor asked, "Did she really
say '/ mUzl at m /' ?"
