'Rush to rage': CNN host levels Trump for 'failing third-grade spelling test' while attacking Mueller

CNN host John King on Wednesday pointed out that President Donald Trump undercut his own criticism of special counsel Robert Mueller when he misspells words in his attack tweets.


In a since-deleted early morning tweet, Trump misspelled "counsel" and "whether." He later reposted the tweet, but "counsel" was still spelled incorrectly.

"The president attacks the special counsel and in the process fails a third-grade spelling test," King explained. "Attacking Robert Mueller by name goes against the advice of the president's lawyers. So when he does it, we learn about his anger at them as much as with the investigation."

"There's no staff around him when the president watches the morning cable shows and lashes out," the CNN host noted. "And apparently no spell check or grammar police."

According to King, Trump would have received "a D or an F" from his third-grade teacher.

"Why the rush to rage?" King added. "The president is mad at his lawyers because they've been unable to make Mueller disappear and because he doesn't like the questions the special counsel has outlined in negotiations over a possible presidential interview."
