Trump Took Three Tries To Spell "Heal" Right In A Tweet And People Had Jokes

He knows words, he has the best words.

Posted on

After a right-wing "free speech" rally and massive counterprotest in Boston on Saturday, President Trump tweeted a call for the American people to come together and "heel." He very quickly deleted it.


Finally, another six minutes later, Trump finally got it right.

Our great country has been divided for decades. Sometimes you need protest in order to heal, & we will heal, & be stronger than ever before!

Third time's the charm!

Naturally, people had a good laugh about the spelling snafu. It was basically Covfefe 2.0.

There were puns.


And a lot of dog jokes.

"Heel, boy! Heel!"

Should we heel or should we march? My dog is so confused. @realDonaldTrump #ImpeachTrumpAndPence #spellingmatters

And, of course, the dictionary got into it.

🏥 heal (to become healthy again) 😈 heel (a contemptible person) 🙋‍♂️ he'll (he will)

Here's to both heels and healing, y'all.
