US President Donald Trump sure needs a proofreader for his tweets.

Trump recently shared a quote where he misspells the word “smoking” twice.

It reads, “‘Democrats can’t find a Smocking Gun tying the Trump campaign to Russia after James Comey’s testimony. No Smocking Gun… No Collusion.’ @Fox News That’s because there was NO COLLUSION. So now the Dems go to a simple private transaction, wrongly call it a campaign contribution.”

Social media users immediately noticed the spelling errors and had a field day. Zach Braff tweeted, “He can’t spell smoking. Not a typo, he did it twice. He can’t spell smoking.” Meanwhile, Mia Farrow uploaded a photo of a gun made out of lace with the words “smocking gun.”

Another Twitter user pointed out that Trump had made the same spelling mistake back in August. Chicago-based writer Josh Jordan wrote on Twitter, “Trump has a history with smocking,” along with a screenshot of Trump’s former tweet that reads, “We already have a smocking gun about a campaign getting dirt on their opponent, it was Hillary Clinton.”

Merriam-Webster dictionary joined in the fun with a tweet that reads, “‘Smocking’ is a type of embroidery made of many small folds sewn into place.”
