Letter: Enjoy the spelling gaffes from our self-proclaimed genius-in-chief

As a self-proclaimed genius with the highest IQ of all his supporters and detractors, let us examine some of Tsar Trump’s tweets:

• “Columbia,” referring to the country of Colombia.

• “honered to serve,” not honored to serve.

• “principles” instead of principals.

• “waite” instead of wait.

• “polices” instead of policies.

• “waist” instead of waste.

• “judgement” instead of judgment.

• “leightweight” instead of lightweight.

• “chocker” when he meant choker.

• “loose” when he meant lose.

• “Barrack Obama” when intended Barack Obama.

• “attaker” when he meant attacker.

• “San Bernadino” instead of San Bernardino.

• “Denmakr,” meaning Denmark (oops!).

• “Teresa May,” meaning Theresa May.

• “hearby” instead of hereby.

• “WEB DeBois” instead of W.E.B. DuBois.

• “White House council” instead of White House counsel.

• “unpresidented” instead of unprecedented (precious!).

• “tapp my phones” instead of tap my phones.

• “challenge to great,” not challenge too great.

• “Coach Bobby Night” instead of Coach Bobby Knight.

• “develope” instead of develop.

• “politicions” instead of politicians.

• “Niki Hailey” instead of Nikki Haley.

• “payed” instead of paid.

Perhaps the Tsar’s spell-checking feature was malfunctioning when he tweeted these beauts, or maybe if was 3 o’clock in the morning when he is at his best.

If the electien had not been riged we wouldn’t be having to putt up with this rokket-scientist.
