Washington (eTruePolitics) – After yet another Twitter spelling gaffe, and subsequent humiliating response tweet from Merriam-Webster, current president Donald Trump is calling for a ban on spelling bees nationwide, including the renowned Scripps National Spelling Bee Championship.
“Spelling bees are a waste of time, nobody cares about spelling,” Trump tweeted, which was then rapidly followed by three more tweets:
“Spelling bees? Look at the winners’ names. They all sound foreign to me! SAD! Probably from terrorist countries. UN-AMERICA!”
“Who the hell is Miriam Webster? She should stick to cooking!”
“ I am the greatest speller ever. Nobody spells better then me.”
