Trump just misspelled a word in tweet defending his spelling. The dictionary’s response is epic


Apparently fed up with the fact that Americans with a 4th grade education and higher have seized on his embarrassing inability to manage even 280 characters without some glaring misspelling, grammatical error or arbitrary mid-sentence capitalization, Trump took to Twitter today to attempt to defend himself.

The word Trump was aiming for was not “pour” but “pore,” as in, it doesn’t take much effort to pore over the president’s tweets before finding a mistake that even a small child wouldn’t make.

Merriam-Webster saw the hypocritical error and issued a brilliant correction– and took some artistic license in the process.
