A recent presidential tweet gained some apparently unintended attention for a glaringly misspelled name.
Donald Trump sought to discount the seriousness of recent North Korea missile tests, attacking a possible 2020 presidential rival in the process.
Referring to “Swampman Joe Bidan” as a “low IQ individual,” Trump’s tweet was soon mocked by critics noting the incorrect spelling of the former vice president’s surname. He as since replaced that tweet with a similar post containing the corrected spelling.
A Biden campaign source remarked that the tweet concerned him, but not because of the typo in particular.
“I would say the tweet speaks for itself, but it’s so unhinged and erratic that I’m not sure anyone could even say that with a straight face,” the aide said. “The spelling error was not the main problem with the first one.”
