Trump Tweet Mocked by Dictionary And J.K. Rowling

Share

In a Twitter post, Trump defended his tweeting style by writing, "After having written many best selling books, and somewhat priding myself on my ability to write, it should be noted that the Fake News constantly likes to pour over my tweets looking for a mistake".

In an awkward moment for the US President, he claimed that "Fake News" "pour" over his tweets to find mistakes, in the same post where he prided over his ability to tweet.

Merriam-Webster got involved as well when they pointed out that it was the improper spelling of the word "pore", as Trump wrote "pour", instead.

Trump should have written that the media "pore" over his tweets, which means 'to read or study attentively - usually used with over'. The US President who gave us the infamous covfefe went on another round of self-praising and boasting about his writing skills in a tweet.

Some believe the tweet was a textbook case of trolling - but this theory fails to explain why Trump deleted the original tweet.

Merriam-Webster Dictionary's Twitter account also felt the importance to point out the grammatical difference between "pore and "pour".

Rowling replied to one Twitter user who threatened burning or discarding the person's "Harry Potter" books, saying that reading the books should make her political leanings obvious.

One fan, in particular, their details redacted by Rowling during a retweet, threatened to burn their collection of Rowling's books in response to her acerbic commentary on American politics. Besides roasting him for his spelling, she has compared him to Harry Potter villain Voldemort, made fun of his use of all caps, burned him over the size of his hands, and more.
