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.
