For as frequently as he tweets, Donald Trump still hasn’t mastered the art of the perfect tweet. Like the time it took him three tries to properly spell the word hereby. Today, both Donald and Melania Trump struggled with their tweets honoring Pearl Harbor Day. Mr. Trump slightly misquoted FDR, while Mrs. Trump just straight-up got the date wrong.
Donald Trump’s tweet, which is still up, takes some artistic liberties with FDR’s famed quote. Technically, the line is “a date which will live in infamy,” rather than Trump’s similar, but not quite right, “day that will live in infamy.” Melania’s goof, however, is less about splitting hairs and more about maybe buying the First Lady’s staff a calendar. Pearl Harbor Day is in December, not November. Her tweet has since been deleted and replaced by one with the correct month.
