This White House is not the best when it comes to typos and errors in their communications, but this is covfefe.
The White House Press Office sent out an email containing an executive order taking additional steps to address the situation in Venezuela. Except in the subject line, instead of Venezuela, it says “America.”
Journalist Twitter had a field day with this one:

INBOX from @WhiteHouse with headline: Executive Order on Taking Additional Steps to Address the Situation in America.
So I click to see if @POTUS has declared martial law…and I find to my relief it’s about Venezuela.

The Trump White House cannot even type correctly. This is called an Exec Order on “the situation in America.” So I opened it thinking “what kinda ‘situation’ is he talking about?” Turns out its an EO about Venezuela. Trump hasn’t yet succeeded in turning America into Venezuela. pic.twitter.com/sHDfTOcfqf

Quite a startling subject line on an email from the White House press office. From the body of the text, it would seem that the last word is supposed to be “Venezuela.” pic.twitter.com/e1RzPtC9Nq

No word yet from the White House about this gaffe. But it’s very possible that Sarah Huckabee Sanders will tell the press corps that the president and a small group of people know exactly what he meant.
