President Donald Trump drew chuckles from the internet again after an attack on Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), though it was a misspelled attack.

"So funny to see little Adam Schitt (D-CA) talking about the fact that Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker was not approved by the Senate, but not mentioning the fact that Bob Mueller (who is highly conflicted) was not approved by the Senate!" Trump wrote.

"Wow, Mr. President, that’s a good one," he tweeted. "Was that like your answers to Mr. Mueller’s questions, or did you write this one yourself?"
