US Senator and former presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton has apparently managed to raise quite a few eyebrows on social media with what seems to be a thinly veiled verbal attack against US President Donald Trump and his cohorts, involving misspelling and Scrabble.
In her 26 May tweet, Hillary wrote that Scrabble recently updated its list of approved words though the words "covfefe" and "ivesssapology" – two Twitter typos made by Trump and his attorney Rudy Giuliani respectively – "were not among them".
"But those changes aren't yet reflected in the Scrabble app. Where are we on this, @Hasbro?" she inquired.
Earlier this month, Scrabble updated its list of approved words for game play for the first time in four years ("ivesssapology" and "covfefe" were not among them).— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) 26 мая 2019 г.
But those changes aren't yet reflected in the Scrabble app. 👎
Where are we on this, @Hasbro? 🤷♀️
Some netizens seemed amused by Hillary’s sense of humour or the way she hit out at her opponents.

Her detractors, however, used this opportunity to remind the woman who sought to become the first female president in the history of the United States of her failures.

And a number of people simply went on to diss Hillary herself.
