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.

#unpresidented Sounds like a Comedy, about a guy who accidentally becomes the President of the United States of America and starts WW3— stuffy knows (@stuffy knows)1481983205.0

Spot the mistake. It's #unpresidented that the President elect has not published his tax reterns.https://t.co/UDgYyD2jRm— camz (@camz)1481983288.0

@realDonaldTrump I believe the word you're looking for is "unprecedented," as in: "The stupidity of our president-elect is unprecedented."— Ben Rohrbach (@Ben Rohrbach)1481979115.0
For the final word....
Good morning! The #WordOfTheDay is...not 'unpresidented'. We don't enter that word. That's a new one. https://t.co/BJ45AtMNu4— Merriam-Webster (@Merriam-Webster)1481982085.0
