Thread: Trump tweets 'liddle' and confuses hyphens with apostrophes. The dictionary teased him

  1. #1

    Trump tweets 'liddle' and confuses hyphens with apostrophes. The dictionary teased him

    Something on the lighter side. Spelling wars on Twitter involving Trump.

    A tweet published early Friday morning by President Donald Trump got flak from the Merriam-Webster dictionary because of its multiple typos and grammatical errors.

    In a tweetstorm criticizing the "LameStream Media" and its coverage of Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., Trump wrote that he used the word "Liddle', not Liddle, in discribing" Schiff, emphasizing the apostrophe after the word "Liddle."

    "Low ratings @CNN purposely took the hyphen out and said I spelled the word little wrong. A small but never ending situation with CNN!" he continued.

    After Trump's tweet, Merriam-Webster slyly tweeted explanations of what a hyphen and apostrophe is, "for those looking up punctuation early on a Friday morning."



    The multiple errors in his tweet did not go unnoticed and uncorrected by grammar perfectionists: Trump referred to an apostrophe as a hyphen and misspelled "describing" and "little." It is unclear whether the latter error is an intentional typo in the vein of "covfefe."



    This isn't the first time Merriam-Webster has poked fun of a typo in a Trump tweet. A since-deleted tweet from Trump in 2018 confused the homonyms "pore" and "pour."

    Schiff, the House Intelligence Committee chairman, leads the charge to investigate claims made by an unidentified whistleblower that Trump tried to get Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.

    The reason Trump jabs 'Liddle' Adam Schiff is due to Schiff's involvement with The Liddle Kidz Foundation - this foundation specializes in pediatric infant massage and touch therapy.

    http://www.liddlekidz.com/



    It is important for young children and infants to receive affection and touch from their mother, this has been proven by studies over and over. I'm not sure how effective it is being received from strangers. Is there any science on that?

    But the main issue is that the organization is run by Satanic Pedophiles like Liddle Adam Schiff who like to touch children and infants and Trump likes to jab him for that.. they are involved in child sex trafficking and Trumps knows.. and Schiff will go down for this soon.

    And putting an apostrophe after the word "liddle" makes a difference how?

    I didn't put an apostrophe, it was a quotation mark.

    The reason for that was because the first time Trump tweeted it out, it was "Liddle Schiff". Then it became "Little Schiff" for a while.. but then again recently he hit him with "Liddle Schiff" again.

    I am making the topic of the thread relevant, as opposed to being a stupid topic about typos on twitter.

    Adam Schiff is giving pediatric and infant massages all over the globe, and you're worried about this?

    You are exemplifying the problems of those who suffer from TDS.

    Apparently Trump is worried about it. It wouldn't have crossed my mind to criticize CNN for leaving off his apostrophe. Can you see a way to understand that without Trump being an idiot?
