Trump Scolds the Wrong Theresa May After Criticism Over Him Sharing Anti-Muslim Videos

Let’s break down everything that is going on in this tweet:

The President of the United States, who shared a racist far-right group’s unverified anti-Muslim videos, responded to criticism from the office of Prime Minister Theresa May––who felt that the President of the United States should NOT be sharing a racist far-right group’s unverified anti-Muslim videos––by saying that she should not “focus on me” and focus on radical Islam instead, but in doing so he TAGGED THE WRONG THERESA MAY.

The account he linked to does not belong to the British prime minister, it belongs to another woman named Theresa who’s about to get a lot of angry and confused tweets.

Theresa May’s account is @theresa_may.

UPDATE –– 8:04 pm ET: As you can see above, the President deleted the tweet and corrected it:
