The mangled spellings that were a staple of Donald Trump's presidential campaign are flourishing in the White House.It started on Trump's first full day in office, when he described himself as "honered" to serve as the 45th president. Trump's first presidential visit with a foreign leader was with British Prime Minister Theresa May in January.Vice President Mike Pence's office made the same mistake.This month brought serial spelling malfunctions when the White House released a list of 78 terrorist attacks that it said had been underreported by the media.A White House release Monday on the president's phone call with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos referred to the country at one point as "Columbia".While its spelling issues were far more limited, the Obama White House had its own bobbles.The Trump administration's spelling challenges extend beyond the White House. During the presidential campaign, Trump ridiculed GOP rival Marco Rubio as a "leightweight chocker," faulted Ted Cruz for "L-Y-E-N,'" and tweeted that commentator Lawrence O'Donnell was "one of the dummer people on television".Perhaps Trump can get some advice from the next winner of the spelling bee: Seven presidents, including Obama, have met with spelling champs.
