Trump Misspells ‘Heal’ Twice In Tweet About Healing America, Twitter Hits Back

After an action-packed week that started with an intense tussle in Charlottesville and faded into a relatively passive protest in Boston, President Trump has attempted to bring salvation to the country by calling it to “heel.”
“Our great country has been divided for decade [sic], but it will come together again. Sometimes protest is needed in order to heel [sic], and heel [sic] we will!”
The tweet was soon deleted and replaced with a second attempt to set things straight. Trump changed “for decade” to “for decades”, but the text showed no sign of the “heel” typo being healed.
As they say, third time’s a charm. It took Trump three tries to craft a perfectly spelled tweet about uniting as a country in order to heal—and united, it became.
Twitter users are not the kind to turn on their heels and walk away from an occurrence like this. “Spelling is Trump’s Achilles heel,” Big Green Bookshop tweets.
Even Merriam-Webster has stepped in to give the internet a ‘your VS you’re’-esque lesson. It hints that Trump might have been right about the alleged misspelling, since “heel” can also refer to “a contemptible person.”
Check out some hilarious responses from the internet to possibly heal a bad day.
