Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer on Tuesday thanked former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson for serving the United States — except he made a critical typo that made it seem as though Spicer believed Tillerson was actually tearing America into pieces.
“Secretary Tillerson is a true patriot that has severed our nation well,” Spicer wrote on Twitter. “Thank you for serving. Mike Pompeo will be an outstanding Secretary of State – the Senate should act swiftly to confirm him.”
Spicer’s gaffe sparked multiple hilarious responses — check out some of the best ones below.
This whole administration has severed our nation well. 😡
