Jimmy Kimmel Hosts a ‘MAGA’ Spelling Bee With Words Trump Misspelled on Twitter
Jimmy Kimmel had some fun at President Trump‘s expense by making a “presidential” game show out of his infamous Twitter typos.
If you follow the president on Twitter, then you know that his tweets occasionally have spelling errors. So in the spirit of his mistakes, Kimmel hosted the Make America Great Again Spelling Bee with three young spelling bee champions. However, the catch is that they have to spell the words exactly the way Trump tweeted them, not the way the “liberal, leftist dictionary” spells it . In other words, if they spell it right, they’re wrong.
The first word was “honered.”

When asked to use it in a sentence, Kimmel simply read Trump’s tweet.
The second word was “tapp.”
How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!

The third word was “rediculous” (from a deleted tweet).
Reports by @CNN that I will be working on The Apprentice during my Presidency, even part time, are ridiculous & untrue – FAKE NEWS!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 10, 2016
The fourth word was “unpresidented.”

The fifth word was “waite” (from another deleted tweet).
If Russia, or some other entity, was hacking, why did the White House wait so long to act? Why did they only complain after Hillary lost?
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 15, 2016
And the final word was “politicions” (again, from another deleted tweet).
It is Clinton and Sanders people who disrupted my rally in Chicago – and then they say I must talk to my people. Phony politicians!

Of the six words, only one was correctly spelled incorrectly.
