Sometimes Trump’s fat little fingers go a lot faster than his Windows 95 brain does. When that happens, as it often does, we mere mortals here on the world wide interweb get to witness some giggle-inducing slip-ups in Donald’s otherwise morbidly depressing Twitter feed. And considering the nature of the tweet that he f*cked up today, people are grasping at that shred of comedic relief — allowing us to wallow in our inappropriate dark humor, the only thing that’s keeping our sanity intact through the dark days of Donald Trump.
It was reported yesterday that Trump agreed to pay the $2 million dollar invoice issued by the North Korean government for the “care” of Otto Warmbier — an American college student that was imprisoned and tortured by North Korea over a two-year span for stealing a propaganda poster and returned to the US in grave condition where he succumbed to his injuries within days.
Suffice it to say, Donald has quickly received a boatload of flack for paying off what many see as a ransom note to a country that tortured and killed one of our own.
Of course, as we’re all well aware now, Trump can’t stand to be the subject of any disapproval. So, in true Trump fashion, the president took to his trusty Twitter account in an attempt to defend himself and (again, like usual) he promptly fell flat on his face.
Early this morning, Trump sent out a tweet quoting an unidentified conservative pundit who apparently defended his decision to pay off North Korea’s “bill.”
“President Donald J. Trump is the greatest hostage negotiator that I know of in the history of the United States,'” Trump wrote, quoting the unidentified source. “20 hostages, many in impossible circumstances, have been released in last two years. No money was paid.’ Cheif Hostage Negotiator, USA!” the president’s tweet read.

People were quick to notice that our “Cheif Negotiator” can’t even spell correctly.
It’s bad enough that our president is blatantly willing to negotiate with a self-proclaimed tyrant that publicly tortured and ultimately killed an innocent American, but evidently, he can’t even spell when he defends himself.
Somebody get him a bigger phone, those sausage fingers on those tiny hands make it hard to hit the right buttons.
