    News, Politics

    On Thursday, Donald Trump Jr. sent a tweet meant to mock the Washington Post but instead made him the butt of endless jokes due to one tiny typo in his smarmy diss.

    Junior was reacting to the Post‘s article which criticized House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes’ controversial 4-page “secret” memo. In his tweet, daddy‘s little twitter troll taunted the Post and the mainstream media, implying that they opposed the memo because it used supposedly verified sources as opposed to “information leaked from unverified sources.” Donald Trump’s eldest son then joked how it would be hard for them to sell their “democracy dies in dankness” byline.

    Unfortunately for Junior, the word the Post uses is not “dankness,” but darkness.

    “Apparently the press only likes their information ‘leaked’ from unverified sources rather than released openly from congress… I think it will be tough for them to sell their ‘democracy dies in dankness’ byline with this kind of logic.”

    Aside from the hilarious typo, Junior also further illustrated his ignorance by incorrectly labeling the quote as a “byline” when it was, in fact, a tagline. Junior’s apparent “mastery” of journalistic terminology has given birth to what the internet is now calling “best typo of our time.”

    And Finally.

    By the way, folks, are the definitions of a byline and tagline courtesy of  Merriam-Webster.


    See Junior; dictionaries are more than just the thick and heavy books that daddy still enjoys throwing at your head.

    I'm originally from Louisiana, just outside of New Orleans; now living North Texas. I'm a reformed "South Park Conservative" who has grown passionate about progressive issues like social justice, education, criminal justice reform, gun control, ending the war on drugs, and economic inequality. I believe America's a stronger nation when we come together as one to find a solution and humble ourselves enough to consider other points of view from our neighbors around the world. I don't believe in American exceptionalism, but I do believe America can only be an exceptional place as long as we can be brutally honest about its strengths and weaknesses.
