US President Donald Trump has once again become the focus of attention online due to one of his latest tweet, though probably not the way the POTUS might've intended.
In an apparent response to a news article which alleged that Trump “said he'd listen if foreign governments offered him 'dirt' on opponents", as the Daily Mail put it, the US president named several foreign leaders and dignitaries he meets “every day”, including the “Prince of Whales” - the apparently misspelled title of Prince Charles.

And even though the spelling mistake was swiftly corrected, many amused netizens seemed reluctant to just let this blunder slide.
