Hey, people make mistakes, it happens. It's not the end of the world, but when you're the President and First Lady of the United States of America, one hopes there is someone available to take 10 seconds to double-check your tweets before sending them out into the world.
Maybe just a "Hey, would you mind taking a glance at this..." in the hallway...
But for this White House, that seems to be a bit too much to ask.
On Thursday, both Donald Trump and his wife Melania posted tweets commemorating Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day that contained errors.
And for his part, Donald Trump got the date correct but misquoted FDR's speech calling on Congress to declare war against Japan.
"...December 7, 1941—a date which will live in infamy..."
No no no no no.
Now, to be fair, the errors in these tweets are hardly earth shattering, but as you can imagine...
Am I the only one that feel like we’ve been dropped into the set of the filming of a National Lampoon movie?— Tina (@tinad711) December 7, 2017
Me too. I am sick to my stomach and seriously believe I am crazy and imagining all of this. This just can't be real!— Nic♡ (@Nicole_P__) December 7, 2017
It is just plain embarrassing, the level of willful incompetence and disinterested phoning-it-in on display by this administration.— MutherBear (@MuthrBear) December 7, 2017
Ok a date typo is not a big deal, especially if posted from a phone, and Trump’s ‘day’ versus ‘date’ . . . Seriously? They should have reviewed the tweets before posting, however. Having said that, this is the absolute limit to my defense of ANYTHING the Trump’s have to say.— DPTBW ☘️🌷☘️ (@DPTBW) December 7, 2017
Did anyone expect anything different? I know I sure as hell didn't.— Alfred Cola.. (@ZiggyBKNY) December 7, 2017
Same, Ziggy. Same.
