Ever since the Mueller investigation concluded Trump has been crowing about how it “totally exonerates” him (which in fact remains to be seen) and playing the role he enjoys most of all: the victim.
In a tweet that echoed complaints from his Bible-thumping supporter Jerry Falwell Jr. Trump complained that the investigation into his campaign’s connections to Russia had stolen two years of his presidency from him.
Except he spelled it “stollen” instead of stolen, bravely defying autocorrect once again.
The tweet was later deleted and corrected by screenshots are forever.
As many…many people pointed out “stollen” is actually a word…for a traditional German baked good served on Christmas.
Just to clarify: in Germany this is a Stollen. pic.twitter.com/p9yV01UcrE

Stollen is a fruit bread of nuts, spices, and dried or candied fruit, coated with powdered sugar or icing sugar. It is a traditional German bread eaten during the Christmas season, when it is called Weihnachtsstollen or Christstollen 🤔😂 pic.twitter.com/g9LTahWl4W

Isn’t stollen a German pastry?

Stollen is trending for the wrong reasons but here's to bread and unnecessary calories.

I came on here and saw "Stollen" trending and I wanted to know why the traditional Christmas bread was trending in May.
I should have known. https://t.co/J1tWstoODt

Looks like you (or someone) corrected the spelling of "stollen"

Trump also retweeted Falwell’s complaint which included the wild suggestion that Trump be GIVEN two extra years on his term because of the time stollen/stolen from him by what Falwell called a “corrupt failed coup.”
After the best week ever for @realDonaldTrump – no obstruction, no collusion, NYT admits @BarackObama did spy on his campaign, & the economy is soaring. I now support reparations-Trump should have 2 yrs added to his 1st term as pay back for time stolen by this corrupt failed coup

Trump is retweeting Falwell saying he should get to stay in the White House longer than his actual term.

A president here suggests that his term be “extended”?
That’s the way it’s done in dictatorships.
Jerry Falwell knows less about the Constitution than he does about the Bible.@realDonaldTrump is a dangerous man and should be impeached now!https://t.co/Y3QQKu4Zgl

Of course this isn’t the first time Trump has tweeted out an egregious typo to his 50 million Twitter followers…not by a long shot.
Today in presidential spelling lessons: please copy the following sentences ten times.
My covfefe was stollen in Kentuky in an unpresidented act. He made it over the Boarder Scott Free, but we will find the Smocking gun!
