President Donald Trump claimed on Sunday that members of the news media are getting "Noble Prizes" for investigating his administration.
The president made the assertion in an afternoon rant on Twitter.
Commenters quickly pointed out that Trump not only spelled "Nobel" incorrectly, but he also was mostly likely referring to Pulitzer Prizes that were awarded to reporters at The New York Times and Washington Post for their investigations into Russia's interference in the 2016 U.S. election.
