Merriam-Webster Dictionary’s official Twitter account on Tuesday mocked President Trump after he used the wrong form of “pore” in a tweet bragging about his “ability to write.”
Trump defended his use of Twitter and his tweet-writing style, saying the “Fake News” likes to “pour [sic]” over his tweets for grammatical mistakes.
“After having written many best selling books, and somewhat priding myself on my ability to write, it should be noted that the Fake News constantly likes to pour over my tweets looking for a mistake,” he wrote. “I capitalize certain words only for emphasis, not b/c they should be capitalized!”
The article goes on to state the following:
The dictionary fired back within an hour, tweeting definitions of “pore over”: “to read or study very carefully,” and “pour over”: “to make expensive coffee.”
‘pore over’ 🔍”to read or study very carefully”
‘pour over’ ☕”to make expensive coffee”
‘comb over’ 💇♂️”to comb hair from the side of the head to cover the bald spot”https://t.co/br20fgpmAb
