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...

Others wondered what political correctness has to do with horse racing.

And some said that the mistake was due to Trump being uneducated.

Seriously though, how hard can it be?

Guys, he's the president.

Did he battle with spellcheck to get this typo through?

Good morning all in Kentuky!

Even Morgan Freeman got involved.

Just a reminder for those at the back, the president of the United States of America can't spell 'Kentucky'.
