Donald Trump attempted to hit back at NBC News over their recent reporting, but got caught up in another spelling mistake.
It’s become commonplace for #Donald Trump to air his grievances on social media. Known for his almost daily #Twitter rants, the president-elect has also been known to tweet a bit too quickly, and without proofreading his words.
Trump Twitter fail
Ever since Donald Trump announced his campaign for president, he’s made a habit out of lashing out on Twitter. While he was able to connect to millions of his supporters on social media, there have been a growing list of examples where the billionaire real estate mogul failed to take a few seconds and look over his message. Earlier this week, Trump tweeted out his support for expanding the United States nuclear capabilities. Various news outlets ran with the story, including NBC News. In a December 24 tweet, Trump attempted to hit back at the network, but was quickly called out for his grammar error.
“@NBCNews purposely left out this part of my nuclear qoute: ‘until such time as the world comes to its senses regarding nukes,'” Donald Trump tweeted, before labeling the network “Dishonest!” In a matter of minutes, Trump was ridiculed for misspelling the word “quote” as “qoute,” ignoring the basic spelling rule that in nearly all cases, “u” always follows “q.” “@realDonaldTrump @NBCNews Spell check, my man. Spell check,” Upworthy writer Parker Molloy pointed out. In just two hours, Molley’s tweet was “liked” over 1,100 times.
This is the second time in just a week that Donald Trump has been called out for his spelling issues. After China seized a United States Navy drone, the former host of “The Apprentice” once again took to Twitter to give his thoughts. Trump attempted to refer to the incident as “unprecedented,” but appeared to invent his own word, “unpresidented” in its place. After 90 minutes of ridicule, Trump pulled the original tweet, and replaced it with the correct spelling.
Despite a handful of grammar and spelling mistakes, Donald Trump is less than a month away before he is sworn in as the 45th President of the United States. Despite backlash from millions of Americans across the country, nearly 100,000 thousand protests planning to take to the streets on #Inauguration Day, and celebrities who refuse to perform at his ceremony, Trump has nearly finalized his cabinet and administration, and is ready to move into the White House.
