The acronym HIV stands for Human Immunodeficiency Virus, while HPV stands for Human PapillomaVirus. We may not all know the exact words associated with each acronym, but most know the difference between the medical conditions associated with the two.


But according to Bill Gates, President Donald Trump is one of those people who does not. In a side note, the president proposed cutting HIV/AIDS funding in 2019 by millions of dollars. Hopefully he knew which was which by then.

In recently released video, Gates dishes on several meetings with the president to the amusement of the crowd.

Some of the revelations?

Gates once ducked the president at an event, actively avoiding speaking with him.

Despite having it explained to him previously by Gates, the president again asked the computer giant if HIV and HPV were the same thing.

Trump once arrived for an event, greeted guests, left, then flew back in a helicopter to the same event to, in the words of Gates, "make a grand entrance."

Gates and his wife found it disturbing how much Trump knew about their then 20 year old daughter's appearance.

In a December 2016 meeting at Trump Tower in New York, Trump asked Gates about setting up a commission to look into the dangers of vaccines. The president said he was advised to look into it by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., the son of former Attorney General Bobby Kennedy and an avid vaccine skeptic.

At a second meeting in Washington D.C. the following March, Trump again asked Gates to explain the difference between HIV and HPV.

Gates, the founder of Microsoft was recorded addressing staff at a recent meeting of his charitable Gates Foundation.

The self made billionaire spoke of meeting Trump with several funny anecdotes that seemed chosen to mock the president's intelligence and arrogance.

MSNBC obtained the video and aired it on All In with Chris Hayes.

The internet quickly picked up on the story and the video has been shared across Twitter. While not verified that the president saw it, plenty of people tagged his official Twitter account with the video.
