Trump's 'Smocking Gun' And His Magnitude Of Other Twitter Faux Pas

US President Donald Trump has made another mistake on his favourite social media platform.

The President tweeted about the ongoing investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 US election and wrote "smocking" not once, but twice.

“Democrats can’t find a Smocking Gun tying the Trump campaign to Russia after James Comey’s testimony. No Smocking Gun...No Collusion,” Trump wrote.

As of time of writing, nearly 11 hours later, the tweet remains undeleted on the President's account.

One can only assume he meant to write 'smoking' and Twitter users were quick to point this out. Many people responded by roasting Trump about the error and pretty quickly the hashtag #SmockingGun started trending.

Of course, this isn't the first time Trump has caused himself more harm than good when using Twitter.

Most recently, Trump declared via the social media platform that he was a "Tariff Man" and Twitter lost it. Many users started likening Trump to a fictional character called ' Tariff Man', with one person declaring "Stan Lee didn't live long enough to create Tariff Man".

Of course, who can forget one of the most famous mysteries of the Trump presidency -- the "covfefe" incident.

Trump tweeted the mystery word back in 2017, leaving people all over the world baffled by what he could possibly mean.

Trump tweeted “Despite the constant negative press covfefe"... and that was it. No explanation was provided to the millions of people trying to decode what he meant.

It's nice to know however, that the bizarre word still has a use in more recent times.
