The Big Letrumpski has been trolled before about his spelling and typos and the poor bloke can’t seem to catch a break.
Mixing up counsel and his council with the folks at Merriam-Webster apparently is like a 5-year-old lobbing a watermelon to Babe Ruth….They smashed him to pieces.
Donald has form in this area and has been pulled up many times before for his weak command of the English language. He is a known over-hyphen-ate-or and can slap you upside the head with a few unexpected apostrophe’s and ,,,commas. On the bright side, his mistakes provide valuable literacy lessons to the proletariat and Techly writers alike!
Let’s hope that he doesn’t order meals using lunch codes…

*whispers into the void* In contemporary use, fact is understood to refer to something with actual existence. https://t.co/gCKRZZm23c
