Time and time again, last night’s Republican debate on CNN turned from an actual debate about policies and issues into a verbal dick-measuring contest between the three leading candidates for the GOP nomination: Donald Trump, Marco Rubio, and Ted Cruz.
At times, the pundits will tell you that both Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz got the better of Trump, forcing him to talk in circles, repeat himself, and not actually produce fully-formed answers to the questions asked by Wolf Blitzer, or the verbal attacks levied by his opponents.
On Friday morning, as he habitually has on the coattails of each GOP Debate, The Donald took to Twitter to share his thoughts on how he performed, and attempt to rip into his competitors. Except, it looks like Trump forgot to spellcheck his Tweets, which were sent out with multiple errors, including misspellings of “lightweight,” “choker,” and “honor.”
Some relatively simple words, if we’re being honest. Ones that you’d think a smartphone would automatically correct. But obviously Trump’s did not, and Marco Rubio had a goddamn field day with it at his rally in Texas.
Presidential candidates are now focusing on their opponent’s spelling on Twitter. What a time. To be alive. Of course, Trump promptly deleted the Tweets in question just minutes after Rubio called him out, and will probably reject the idea that they ever existed, because that’s what he does best.
“Friends don’t let friends vote for con-artists!” What a line, Marco.
