The Dictionary Just Schooled President Trump, And People Can't Stop Laughing


Merriam-Webster dictionary's Twitter account is always poised to exact linguistic injustice. Donald Trump was recently an unwitting pupil and has made many appearances on their account due to his poor spelling on many of his initial tweets.

The dictionary has been particularly vigil on tweets coming from the administration.

So when Donald Trump tweeted about deposed Attorney General Sally Yates' upcoming testimony on what she shared with the "White House council" regarding Michael Flynn's ties to Russia, Mirriam-Webster's sirens came a blaring to school the president on an incorrect homophone usage. Not a good look for the President. Who is spell checking these things?
