By now, we're all accustomed to the rather regular spelling errors that are issued from the White House and Donald Trump's Twitter accounts.

In the latest instalment, Trump attempted to criticise Hillary Clinton by quoting right-wing Washington Post columnist Marc Thiessen in order to accuse her of conspiring with Russia to gain compromising information that could be used against his campaign.

In the tweet, the president quoted Marc Thiessen, who told Fox News in an interview Wednesday: "We already have a smoking gun about a campaign getting dirt on their opponent, it was Hillary Clinton."

In the tweet, Trump continued the quote, however he made a blaring spelling error, which has been screen-shotted by The Daily Mail:

Smocking? Hummm....

Unsurprisingly, the original tweet was quickly deleted, and replaced with one that actually spelt the word 'smoking' correctly:

The full quote reads:

'We already have a smoking gun about a campaign getting dirt on their opponent, it was Hillary Clinton. How is it OK for Hillary Clinton to proactively seek dirt from the Russians but the Trump campaign met at the Russians request and that is bad?' Marc Thiessen, Washington Post

Needless to say, the internet had a field day.

Others wondered whether it had something to do with the White House's guns policies?

The sewing puns abounded.

Others got creative with sewing imagery.

Many hammered home that 'smocking' is a bad habit.

But, the real question on everyone's lips was - is smocking the new covfefe?
