Known for frequent and often rudimentary grammatical errors in his tweets, President Donald Trump recently proclaimed his “ability to write” in a post that attracted some high-profile mockery.
He took on his critics by claiming that the “Fake News constantly likes to pore over” his tweets. In a previous, now-deleted version, he incorrectly used the phrase “pour over.”
The official account of dictionary publisher Merriam-Webster was one of many to point out his incorrect word choice.
Not only did the tweet offer definitions for both terms, it also included “comb over” in an apparent reference to Trump’s unusually complicated hairstyle.
Many others lampooned the president for his initial tweet, including several prominent writers.
