Donald John Trump clearly has a Twitter fetish that exposes him to occasional snickering around the world.
One must expect, therefore, that the president of the United States of America — a self-proclaimed “really smart person” — can spell rudimentary words.
Trump unholstered his tweeting device and launched this little message into cyberspace: “Our great country has been divided for decade, but it will come together again.Sometimes protest is needed in order to heel,and heel we will!”
Then he “corrected” it, sending out this follow-up message: “Our great country has been divided for decades. Somtimes you need protest in order to heel, & we will heel, & be stronger than ever before!”
Aaaack … again!
The president did correct the “heel” typo with a subsequent treat that spelled the word correctly.
I’ve long wondered whether the president is as rich as he kept telling us he is. A look at those mysterious tax returns would answer that one. I’m now convinced that the president isn’t quite the “really smart person” he bragged about being.
But the overarching issue isn’t really whether the president can spell. The issue — as I see it — is his utter lack of self-awareness in the face of obvious ridicule.
I can think of one individual who isn’t laughing. That would be White House chief of staff (and retired Marine general) John Kelly.
