Washington, Aug 1: US Republican presidential candidate Dold Trump was left embarrassed after making three spelling mistakes in one 21-word tweet attacking Hillary Clinton, the media reported on Sunday. In a tweet criticising his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton, Trump wrote: “Hillary Clinton should not be given tiol security briefings in that she is a lose cannon with extraordirily bad judgement & insticts.” Trump’s tweet echoed a statement made by Clinton in May, when she called him an “unqualified loose cannon”, the Independent cited CBS News report.
However, Twitter users were quick to point out the three spelling mistakes in his short tweet: “lose” instead of “loose”, “insticts” instead of “instincts”, and “judgement” instead of the correct US spelling of the word, “judgment”.
“There is no scerio to ever exist where you have not been the loosest cannon in the room,” the Independent quoted well-known model Christine Teigen as saying in a tweet.
This is not the first time Trump has misspelled words or made typos on the social network. “Every poll said I won the debate last night. Great honer!” he wrote in February, in a tweet that has since been deleted after people pointed out the correct American spelling was “honor”.
He also once spelled the word “choker” in two different ways within the same tweet, also in February: “Lightweight Marco Rubio was working hard last night. The problem is, he is a choker, and one a choker, always a hocker! Mr. Meltdown.”
And at a rally in Knoxville, Tennessee last November, the poster on his podium had misspelled the state, using only one “s”. (IANS)
