Donald Trump is a passionate man, especially on Twitter, and it seems his passion sometimes gets in the way of grammar and spelling while he's furiously typing out his tweets.
One got so out of control on Wednesday morning that Trump actually deleted it, made some corrections and reposted it ... and it still had spelling mistakes, much to the delight of James Corden and Jimmy Kimmel.
The original tweet read, "Special Council is told to find crimes, wether crimes exist or not. I was opposed the the selection of Mueller to be Special Council, I still am opposed to it. I think President Trump was right when he said there never should have been a Special Council appointed because..."
From the double "the" to the misspelling of "whether" to the multiple uses of the wrong "council" and the bizarre switch to third person (because it's a quote without quotations), this tweet is a mess.
“Special Council is told to find crimes, whether a crime exists or not. I was opposed to the selection of Mueller to be Special Council. I am still opposed to it. I think President Trump was right when he said there never should have been a Special Council appointed because.....
The replacement tweet was better, though he still seems determined to make "council" a thing. It's not going to happen. Sorry, Mr. President.
Trump has a history of presidential typos, from the infamous "covfefe" whatever-that-was to talking about China's "unpresidented" act in regards to a U.S. Navy research drone. He's been appalled that Obama would dare to "tapp" his phones, told Ted Cruz he would "loose" to Hillary Clinton, and called for the nation to "heel." He even proudly shared a New York Post about his "consensual presidency" ... ahem, that is "consequential presidency."
Kimmel and Corden just couldn't let this latest tweet slide, even if Trump did try to quickly erase it from the annals of history (please note two N's in "annals," Mr. President). Below are some of their best jokes.
"The president's nubby little fingers must have been going so fast he made some mistakes." (Jimmy Kimmel)
"25 minutes later he deleted that tweet and replaced it with the word 'whether' spelled correctly, but 'Council' still spelled wrong three times.' (Jimmy Kimmel)
"You'd think that by now the president, of all people, would be familiar with the term "special counsel" since he's the special guy the counsel is focusing on." (Jimmy Kimmel)
"What's terrifying is tweeting is the one thing Donald Trump is good at." (James Corden)
"As of now, he still hasn't corrected the spelling of 'council.' I guess he wants to show his base that he won't be swayed by a bunch of left-wing liberal dictionaries." (Jimmy Kimmel)
"If you're wondering whether our president is crazy or just dumb, dumb just won another round." (Jimmy Kimmel)
"At this point even Trump's autocorrect is like, 'I can't with this guy. I quit. No more. I'm out. Done.'" (James Corden)
"If you really want to speak Trump's language, the instructions should have been written as, 'DO NOT CONGRADUATE THE THE PUTIN.' He'd have understood that." (James Corden)
"I know a lot of people can't spell, but a lot of people aren't president." (Jimmy Kimmel)
"A leader who cannot spell is potentially dangerous. What if he gets hungry and he thinks he's sending a text and instead he tweets, 'Preparing to order LAUNCH. Maybe we'll get some Chinese.'" (Jimmy Kimmel)
"Can you imagine this guy trying to make a sandwich? Putting peanut butter on both sides of the bread and then putting it in the microwave until it catches fire." (James Corden)
"If only there was a program on our phones that told us when we misspelled something." (Jimmy Kimmel)
