Donald Trump has posted a number of things on Twitter that have included incorrect spelling, incorrect word usage, and pure gibberish. One might think he’d use the vast resources of the presidency to avoid the embarrassment of the American public figuring out that he’s semi-literate when it comes to both technology and the English language. But he reached a new kind of low today when he tweeted just a single word for no apparent reason.
This was the tweet which Donald Trump posted on Saturday afternoon, before deleting it less than a minute later:
This ranks right up there with the time Trump needed three tries to figure out how to spell “hereby” and the time he began praising “Julian Assuage” when he meant Julian Assange. As always, we recommend Twitter for Dummies. Needless to say, Twitter had some fun with this one. Various users began asking if perhaps Trump meant “Whee!” or if he needed to go “wee” or if he was auditioning for Sesame Street. We thought perhaps he was trying to recite the Constitution, only to realize he didn’t know anything about the Constitution beyond the first word of it. Some of his executive orders would suggest this much is true.
Twenty-some minutes later, Donald Trump finally got around to tweeting “Will be interviewed by @JudgeJeanine on @FoxNews at 9:00 P.M. (Saturday night). Enjoy!” (link). So perhaps this was what he had been trying to type when he tweeted “We” earlier. Or perhaps wherever train of thought he was trying to form around the word “We” has now been mercifully lost forever.
