People Are Trolling President Trump After It Took Him Three Times To Spell "Hereby" Correctly

"I hear by demand..."

Posted on

On Friday, President Trump called for an investigation of Nancy Pelosi after Politico reported that the House minority leader had indeed met with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, despite her saying otherwise.

I hereby demand a second investigation, after Schumer, of Pelosi for her close ties to Russia, and lying about it. https://t.co/qCDljfF3wN

This followed an earlier tweet in which Trump asked for Sen. Chuck Schumer to be investigated after this old photo was posted to Reddit.

We should start an immediate investigation into @SenSchumer and his ties to Russia and Putin. A total hypocrite!

Pelosi, on Twitter, promptly responded to President Trump.

But this ~final~ tweet followed two that contained spelling errors. In two consecutive tweets from the president's Twitter account, the word "hereby" was spelled incorrectly. Both tweets have since been deleted.

People had some things to say. One person pointed out the awkward timing between the spelling errors and another tweet about fixing the education system.

Just Trump's 3rd attempt at spelling 'hereby', right after his tweet complaining about our broken education system.

Someone else commented on the length between the tweets.

Goddamn @realDonaldTrump needs 15 minutes and three tries to spell "hereby" correctly.

But mostly, people just had a lot of jokes.

HEAR BY HEARBY HERE BUY HEREBUY HEAR BYE HEARBYE HERE BYE HEREBYE HEAR BI HEARBI HERE BI HEREBI HEAR BAYH HEARBAYH HERE BAYH HEREBAYH HEREBY

One person took to a classic song.

I'm just sitting hereby/ hearby/ here by the dock of the bay.

And others made demands of their own.

@TheRickWilson @realDonaldTrump We, The People of The United States, "hearby" - oops, meant hereby - demand you release your tax returns.

I (hear by here by hearby) hereby declare that our president sets poor (president) precedent for the people of the United States

Also, declarations.

The President is hereby a fucking idiot.

@POTUS @politico I hereby decree you are illiterate

And someone else had a legislative idea.

There should be a law that if it takes you three tries to spell a simple word right in a tweet, you're not allowed to be President.

But for this person, the tweet was a sign of growth.

Only took 3 tries to spell "hereby" correctly! Our lil' Donnie is growing up so fast. Better study hard for that ne… https://t.co/JFfzPo5IiQ
