Trump Mocked by Merriam-Webster Dictionary, J.K. Rowling Over Misspelled Tweet Boasting About His Writing Skills

President Donald Trump was mocked by both J.K. Rowling and the official Merriam-Webster Dictionary Twitter account on Tuesday after he misspelled a word in a tweet in which he boasted about his "ability to write."

On Tuesday, Trump bragged about his writing skills with a tweet in which he misspelled the word "pour," reported The Hill.

"After having written many best selling books, and somewhat priding myself on my ability to write, it should be noted that the Fake News constantly likes to pour over my tweets looking for a mistake," the president wrote in a tweet that has since been deleted. "I capitalize certain words only for emphasis, not b/c they should be capitalized!"

One hour after the tweet was posted, Merriam-Webster Dictionary's official Twitter account mocked Trump by posting the definition of "pour over" and "pore over." The American online dictionary also defined "comb over," alluding to the president's controversial comb over hairstyle.

Following the incident, the president deleted the tweet and wrote another one correcting the mistake.

Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling then took to Twitter to express her amusement at the series of events that had just unfolded. Along with mocking laughter, Rowling wrote alongside a screenshot of the corrected version of Trump's tweet: "Someone told him how to spell 'pore.'"

Since Trump took office, Merriam-Webster has repeatedly ridiculed the president and his team over their spelling and grammar blunders, among other things. Those running the online dictionary's Twitter account never hesitate to correct the president's Twitter errors almost immediately and even once attempted to define "covfefe."

Last month, Merriam-Webster tweeted the definition of "gas light" and its origins shortly after the Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said that the detention centers holding migrant children were of a high standard.

In March 2017, those running the online dictionary made fun of the presiden'ts misspelling of the word "hereby" by posting the definition of hereby to Twitter.
