Twitter Delights In Trump’s Typo-Riddled Tweet About A Supposed CNN Typo

What impeachment inquiry?

President Donald Trump kicked off his Friday morning by taking CNN to task on a more pressing issue: accusing the network of misspelling his favorite nickname for House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) and repeating the typo in question himself.

It is unclear what prompted Trump’s latest attack against CNN or what the significance of the apostrophe in “Liddle'” could be. He also erroneously referred to the apostrophe as a hyphen.

Trump reiterated his call for Schiff to resign Friday morning for supposedly lying to Congress with his parody opening statement during the Thursday hearing with the acting director of national intelligence.

The reaction to Trump’s nonsensical tweet was swiftly met with snarky reactions:

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
