Trump Mocked For Typo-Riddled Tweetstorm Defending His Grammar

Trump Mocked For Typo-Riddled Tweetstorm Defending His Grammar: ‘He’s a Child’ Merriam-Webster mocks Trump over misspelled tweet | TheHill
Faye Gross | 07 July, 2018, 04:47

Merriam-Webster got involved as well when they pointed out that it was the improper spelling of the word "pore", as Trump wrote "pour", instead. Trump's mistake was in the difference between the word "pore" and "pour".

The dictionary fired back within an hour, tweeting definitions of "pore over": "to read or study very carefully", and "pour over": "to make expensive coffee".

The Harry Potter author was left in a fit of laughter after the US President tweeted about his writing ability.

Donald Trump is exhausted of the FAKE NEWS MEDIA spending precious time trying to find mistakes in his always-perfect-never-misspelled tweets.

And J.K. Rowling has responded with a great putdown - by literally laughing off his silly claim in a series of "hahahahaha" tweets.

Trump's boast came in a tweet, since deleted, that misspelled "pour" after he bragged about his "ability to write".

US plans for dismantling North Korea nukes may face resistance
In a Sunday interview with Fox News, President Trump said North Korea is (quote) "very serious" about denuclearization. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, a noted basketball fan, didn't appear at the gymnasium on Wednesday.


Famous for having penned the Harry Potter novels, the English author and long-time anti-Trump commentator swiftly pounced on the misuse of the word and laughed as long as Twitter's character count would textually allow her to.

Trump biographer Tim O'Brien, who wrote "Trump Nation", also weighed in on Trump's tweet, refuting Trump's claim that he had "written many best selling books".

Donald Trump has goofed up once again.

Since Trump took office, Merriam-Webster has repeated ridiculed the president and his team over their spelling and grammar blunders, among other things.

She also offered some writing advice. It seems JK Rowling does not see this aspect of Trump's style, or rather, after all he's done and said, she doesn't care. The US President who gave us the infamous covfefe went on another round of self-praising and boasting about his writing skills in a tweet.
