Washington: US President Donald Trump was once again in Tweeple’s line of fire over the word “Liddle” which CNN mistook as misspelling of the word “little” but was actually the first name of a Republican Congressman Liddle’ Adam Schiff.
What Trump missed was putting the “hyphen” in Liddle’ and the tweet became the talk of the town.
However, in replying to CNN, Trump did misspell “describing”.
“To show you how dishonest the LameStream Media is, I used the word Liddle’, not Liddle, in discribing Corrupt Congressman Liddle’ Adam Schiff. Low ratings @CNN purposely took the hyphen out and said I spelled the word little wrong. A small but never ending situation with CNN!” Trump tweeted.
Twitterati went crazy over Trump’s misspelling drama.
“The novelty of a ‘president’ who uses words like Liddle, discribing, and hamberders, who mistakes hyphens for apostrophes — all while committing extortion, obstruction, treason — has totally worn off. I don’t care about the spelling. I care about the crime,” tweeted one user.
“The president doesn’t know the difference between a hyphen and an apostrophe (or the proper way to use the latter). Literally no one uses Liddle’ as a way to say Little. I wish whomever did his school work for him, allowing him to graduate from Penn would be the next whistleblower,” tweeted another.
One person commented: “This tweet is a snapshot of how ‘liddle’ the people around Donald are willing to risk his ire by telling him he is wrong or making a mistake right now”.
Schiff, however, did not comment on Trump’s “Liddle” tweets.
“I think somebody should have studied a liddle’ harder in elementary school. Don’t worry, I bet there’s a class for you to practice your reading and writing once you get to prison,” tweeted one user.
The US President who uses Twitter as his typewriter has been in news several times for his gaffes on Twitter.
In May, Trump misspelled the word ‘stolen’ as ‘stollen’ — which is a type of fruit bread served in Germany on Christmas.
Trump also deleted a tweet where he had misspelled ‘Kentucky’ as ‘Kentuky’ while blaming Kentucky Derby result on “political correctness”.
