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.
“Special Council is told to find crimes, whether a crime exists or not. I was opposed to the selection of Mueller to be Special Council. I am still opposed to it. I think President Trump was right when he said there never should have been a Special Council appointed because…..

“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.”

The brother of George Floyd described the condolence phone call he received from President Donald Trump during a Saturday interview on MSNBC.
Philonise Floyd was interviewed by the Rev. Al Sharpton on "Politics Nation."
While Derek Chauvin has been arrested and charged with third degree murder, the other three officers involved in the killing remain free.
"They all need to be convicted of first degree murder and given the death penalty," Floyd said.
"What was the conversation with President Trump like?" Sharpton asked.
"It was so fast," Floyd replied.
"He didn't give me an opportunity to even speak. It was hard, I was trying to talk to him, but he just kept like pushing me off, like 'I don't want to hear what you're talking about.' And I just told him I want justice. I said that I couldn't believe they committed a modern-day lynching in broad daylight."
