Despite going by the name "Jeb!", Jeb Bush does not bother to learn how to pronounce names. While attempting to slam Michelle Obama for not attending a summit between President Obama and Chinese President Xi Jinping in 2013, he mispronounced Malia Obama's name as "Malayla." (He was so close to saying "Malala," which would have been even funnier/sadder).

"Every meeting I had in Beijing started out for the first 10 minutes lambasting me about why it was, as an American, why it was that we insulted China," he said on Tuesday, "And I’m thinking, you know what, it could be that Mrs. Obama was worried about the science project of Malayla."
