Presidential speechwriters have always had to translate their boss’s speaking style into writing, but the Trump White House has taken things to a whole new level.

Trump’s staff purposefully includes misspellings into his tweets, and they even take pride in doing so because it helps convince his base that he has the ”common” touch. They even compete to see who can write the best worst tweet.

That’s right. Trump’s staff fakes incoherent tweets to boost his authenticity with the base.

They’ve gotten so good at it that it’s hard to tell which tweets are really from Trump. Can you tell? We can’t.
