Another chapter in the GOP’s long history of spelling and grammar gaffes.
At times, the Republican Party seems to be just cursed with spelling and grammar gaffes.
In recent times, it seems to go back to 1992, when Vice President Dan Quayle misspelled “potato.”
I miss the days where Dan Quayle trying to spell "potato" was the most embarrassing political moment: https://t.co/CzuJt1AaQh— Beatrix (@_beaverhousen) November 10, 2017\n
The years of George W. Bush and Sarah Palin and their frequent stumbles over words didn’t help matters, and now we have a chief executive whose spelling is as bad as his taste in home decor.
Like tweets that feature “payed.”

Wow, the highly respected Governor of Iowa just stated that "Ted Cruz must be defeated." Big shoker! People do not like Ted.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 19, 2016\n
Donald Trump has even committed perhaps the most perplexing typo in the history of Western civilization.

So it comes as no surprise that this year’s ticket for the State of the Union has a fairly major typo: “Uniom.”
After word got out about it, the office of the sergeant-at-arms reprinted its tickets with “Union” spelled correctly.
Per Sergeant at Arms office: "There was a misprint on the ticket. A correction has been made and our office is redistributing the tickets. There is no expected delay in ticket distribution." https://t.co/HtgJLCcM2L— Laura Barrón-López (@lbarronlopez) January 29, 2018\n
But Twitter has a well-earned reputation for freaking out over typos — and people were all over this one.
