Trump misspells ‘heal’ on Twitter during Boston rally

Like father like son, the famous saying goes, and on Saturday even Donald Trump proved he wasn’t immune to the proverb. 

Trump repeated a glaring typo twice in a tweet about a free speech rally in Boston, just a day after son Donald Trump Jr got criticized for his own spelling mistake.

The president took to Twitter to comment on the 15,000 anti-fascist protesters who marched through the streets to protest against right-wing activists on Saturday.

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

The president finally corrected his tweet around 4.30pm on Saturday, writing: ‘Our great country has been divided for decades. Sometimes you need protest in order to heal, & we will heal, & be stronger than ever before!’ 

Trump also wrote that he wanted to applaud the ‘many protestors’ who were ‘speaking out against bigotry and hate’.

Trump’s new tweet was not missed by his followers, who were quick to pile on the president for his typo. 

‘Third times a charm,’ joked user Jack Dunlop. 

‘Well done. You learned how spell heal. It’s a big day today,’ added Matt Haig.

Many also couldn’t help but notice that Trump was suddenly supporting the protesters just hours after calling them ‘anti-police agitators’. 

‘Looks like many anti-police agitators in Boston,’ he wrote at 12.22pm on Saturday. ‘Police are looking tough and smart! Thank you.’ 

Mark Harris joked that one of Trump’s staff members had been frantically helping him understand both the importance of the Boston counter-protesters and good spelling.

‘Sincere thanks to whoever ran into the crapper to explain the value of protest to the president, then ran in again to explain spelling, the writer joked on Twitter.

Twitter immediately piled on Trump Jr, cracking jokes over both the vagueness of the tweet and the typo. 

‘Are you 14 years old?’ one user jokingly asked, as another piled on, ‘a 14 year old emo at that’. 

‘Friend? Fried? Fraud? Fiend? You can pick,’ shot back user Chris Parry. 

‘The best thing about this is, Junior actually thinks this tweet is so insightful that he went to the trouble of fixing his typo,’ another added. 

Trump Jr’s tweet came just hours after former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon was fired by John Kelly, Trump’s former Chief of Staff. 

But Trump Jr’s tweet may have been related to recent reports that he would be the focus of special counselor Robert Mueller’s Trump-Russia investigation. 

Some speculated that the tweet was referring to former chief strategist  Steve Bannon, who was ousted from the White House dramatically on Friday

A source told Buzzfeed that Mueller and his team were turning their attention to a meeting Trump Jr held with a Russian lawyer who promised intel on Hillary Clinton.

Trump Jr admitted last month that he was hoping to obtain compromising information when he met with Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya on June 9. 

He received an email that read promised ‘official documents and information’ to the Trump campaign that would ‘incriminate Hillary Clinton’ and ‘would be very useful to your father’, clearly referring to Trump. 

Trump Jr replied: ‘If it’s what you say I love it especially later in the summer.’ 

The meeting occurred on June 9 of 2016 and was attended by Trump Jr, his brother-in-law Jared Kushner, and Trump’s campaign manager Paul Manafort. 

Others predicted that Trump Jr was referring to Mitt Romney, who lashed out at Trump on Friday and demanded he apologize for his Charlottesville remarks

Trump Jr claimed he did not receive any pertinent information regarding Clinton, but a source said Mueller is trying to determine what exactly he found out that day. 

Mueller and his team are also examining Trump Jr’s statements regarding the meeting, which changed multiple times. 

Others predicted that Trump Jr was referring to Mitt Romney, who lashed out at Trump on Friday and demanded he apologize for his Charlottesville remarks. 

Trump has come under fire throughout the week after claiming ‘many sides’ were responsible for the violence that broke out in the Virginia college town. 

Romney took to Facebook on Friday to demand that Trump ‘take remedial action in the extreme’.  

‘He should address the American people, acknowledge that he was wrong, apologize,’ the failed 2012 GOP presidential candidate wrote. 

‘State forcefully and unequivocally that racists are 100% to blame for the murder and violence in Charlottesville.’
