Internet users on Thursday enjoyed a laugh at the expense of Donald Trump Jr. after he angrily tweeted that his father had been subjected to an "attempted coup."
Trump Jr. made his remarks in response to reports that former acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe confirmed that members of the Justice Department discussed removing President Donald Trump from office.

The tweet was immediately met with mockery. The misspelling of "investigators" only made matters worse.
