‘Making words great again’: Internet ridicules Trump for Freudian ‘unpresidented’ complaint about China
President-elect Donald Trump kicked off his Saturday morning complaining about the seizure of an American underwater drone by the Chinese only to have everyone ridicule him for coining the word “unpresidented” — which some called a Freudian slip.
Addressing the taking of the boat, Trump tweeted: “China steals United States Navy research drone in international waters – rips it out of water and takes it to China in unpresidented (sic) act.”
An hour and a half later, Trump or one of his minions deleted the unpresidential tweet — but not before it was screen-grabbed:
For people on Twitter it was off to the races — particularly after Trump defenders attempted to blame Trump’s illiteracy on auto-correct.
@realDonaldTrump you are an unpresidented act

#unpresidented Sounds like a Comedy, about a guy who accidentally becomes the President of the United States of America and starts WW3

“Unpresidented” isn’t a word but if it was, I think I know what it would mean.

“Unpresidented” perfectly describes what’s happening to the White House and this country actually

@realDonaldTrump You know those red squiggly lines under certain words you type? That means you misspelled them.

@realDonaldTrump I believe the word you’re looking for is “unprecedented,” as in: “The stupidity of our president-elect is unprecedented.”

My Christmas wish is that Donald Trump becomes #unpresidented
