Donald Trump falsely accuses NBC News of misquoting him, misspells “quote”

It’s sometimes difficult to figure out if Donald Trump‘s infamous Twitter meltdowns more notorious for their false claims or their use of misspelled and nonexistent words, but Trump managed to hit both targets in a strange Christmas Eve meltdown. In an attempt at making his own disturbing tweet about nuclear weapons sound less dire, Trump accused NBC News of having misquoted him. But a quick check of the NBC article in question confirms that it got the quote correct. However, Trump did not get the spelling of the word “quote” correct.

Two days ago, Donald Trump shook many Americans to their core when he introduced the very real possibility of nuclear holocaust during his tenure with a tweet which read “The United States must greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capability until such time as the world comes to its senses regarding nukes.” Accordingly, NBC News posted an article on its website in which it quoted Trump’s tweet in its entirety in the third paragraph. But apparently Trump didn’t read that far.

On Christmas Eve, Donald Trump posted a followup tweet which read “NBCNews purposely left out this part of my nuclear qoute: ‘until such time as the world comes to its senses regarding nukes.’ Dishonest!” Couple of problems there. First, NBC did not leave out any part of his quote, as he falsely accuses. Second, “qoute” is not a word. Perhaps it’ll need to be added to the list of words made up by Trump, including the equally misspelled/imaginary words unpresidented and euphenism and bigly.
