Misspelled Tweet Proves Donald Trump Doesn't Exactly 'Know Words' Like He Claims To


One of the sad truths about America in 2016 is that we've elected a president who doesn't know how to spell.

Regardless of Donald Trump's previous claims that he "knows words" and that he "has a very good brain," his Twitter account begs to differ.

On Saturday morning, the present-elect tweeted about China taking a US Navy research drone out of international waters in an "unprecedented" act.

But, instead of writing "unprecedented," he wrote "unpresidented."


Um... OK, wow.

Donald, if you're going to use your Twitter account as a platform for international announcements and discussion, maybe you should hire a spellchecker.

Better yet, maybe you should just GTF off Twitter for an hour or two and stop trolling your enemies in 140 characters or less.

But, I digress.

Since the tweet went live at 7:30 am, Trump deleted it and re-wrote the statement using the correct spelling of the word.

Luckily, a few Twitter users took a screenshot of the post as evidence that Trump definitely has "presidency" on the mind.

According to a statement issued by the Chinese foreign ministry, the country sees Trump's tweet as "inappropriate," since apparently China was already in contact with US officials to seamlessly return the drone back. The statement also warned that "hyping up" the conflict is "is not beneficial to the smooth resolution of this issue."

Alas, there are a few theories behind the reasons why Donald's ability to spell has proven time and time again to be sub par, such as his stumpy fingers or lack of care.

Either way, it's scary to slowly bear witness to how little the president-elect actually seems to know about what he's doing.


The tweet comes after Trump addressed a crowd in Orlando, Florida on Friday night and finally admitted his supporters were "vicious" during the election.

The speech was a part of the "Thank You" tour Trump is currently making with vice president-elect Mike Pence.

Trump told the crowd,

You people were vicious, violent, screaming, 'Where's the wall? We want the wall!' Screaming, 'Prison! Prison! Lock her up!' I mean you are going crazy. I mean, you were nasty and mean and vicious and you wanted to win, right?

He continued,

But now, you're mellow and you're cool and you're not nearly as vicious or violent, right? Because we won, right?

Why does this speech not make me feel better at all? At least he's finally admitting his supporters lashed out in his name, though he doesn't seem too ashamed of it.

But, come on Trump, I'm sure even you can find an unpaid intern willing to spell check your tweets for you.

It's time to get on that.
