President Trump decided it was a good idea to weigh in on the Kentucky Derby on Twitter, however, he managed to misspell 'Kentuky' in the process. Yes, really.
On Saturday, the Kentucky Derby ended in controversy after the first place racehorse, Maximum Security, was disqualified for leaving its lane and cutting off another horse in the process, meaning the second-place horse Country House was awarded the winning title.
Taking to Twitter, the president said that the decision was an example of 'political correctness':
The Kentucky Derby decision was not a good one.
It was a rough & tumble race on a wet and sloppy track, actually, a beautiful thing to watch.
Only in these days of political correctness could such an overturn occur. The best horse did NOT win the Kentucky Derby - not even close!
This, however, was the president's second tweet, after he deleted his first one that had miss-spelt Kentucky as 'Kentuky'.
Yes, the president of the United States can't spell Kentucky. Let's just take a moment and allow that to sink in...
Needless to say, many social media users were quick to pick up on the president's embarrassing mistake.
The Kentucky Fried Chicken jokes were rolled out...
@realDonaldTrump All you had to do was read off the bucket in front of you. #Kentuky https://t.co/bBFr5okw8r
