Republican Party Taken To School After Posting Typo-Riddled Tweet About Education

Ed Mazza ·Overnight Editor, HuffPost Mon, March 22, 2021, 1:56 AM The Republican National Committee tweeted a call to reopen schools amid the coronavirus pandemic, but the request for in-person education contained a devastating typo.

Or rather, a “DEVESTATING” one, as the RNC misspelled the word on the official GOP Twitter feed on Sunday. Although the tweet was deleted, images were passed around:

The CDC last weekreleased new guidelinesthat should make it easier for schools to reopen, including advice that students can now sit 3 feet apart in classrooms.

Neither the RNC nor its chair,Ronna McDaniel, addressed the typo. But critics on social media took them to school over it:

Tweeting without spell check can be devestating. — Dan Rather (@DanRather)March 21, 2021

Looks like@GOPis trending for their misspelling in that tweet about education. Simply devestating.

Lack of education has had a devestating effect on the GOP's ability to tweet in English

The GOP misspelled the word "DEVESTATING" in their latest tweet and it doesn't surprise me that they are not only out of touch with America, but spelling as well.

Anything that takes thought is not their strong suit.

Extremely on-brand for the Republican Party to misspell “DEVESTATING” while complaining about inadequate schools. Oh, the irony.
— Adam Best (@adamcbest)March 21, 2021

The GOP spelled "devastating" as "DEVESTATING" while talking about school closures causing problems with academic achievement.

The GOP is the stupid party. There's no nicer way to say it. They just don't value thought.

Yes, we realize it had a "DEVESTATING" effect on YOUR education because it is spelled "DEVASTATING." Have someone show you how to use a dictionary or spell check.
— Cat Food Casserole (@CasseroleFood)March 21, 2021

You know what's really DEVESTATING (sic)?

The unbelievable ignorance of today's GOP! Not one of those fools voted for the American Rescue Plan which INCLUDED help for schools. NOT ONE!

If schools can safely reopen, it's despite the GOP.

PS... Spellcheck is your friend,

Hey@GOP, instead of trolling Democrats on Twitter, why not take online writing classes so you could learn to spell devastating. — David Weissman (@davidmweissman)March 21, 2021

Is this really the official@GOPor a parody? You misspell the most impactful word to describe keeping schools closed that could apply to refusing to wear a mask. If this is a parody then you are fn brilliant, if not, it’s so sad.
— Teri M Sharpe (@Sharpe1Teri)March 21, 2021

I agree. Keeping schools closed has caused so many people to get rid of their vests. Who can calculate the effects?
— Sassy Warren Throckmorton with a Jezebel Vibe (@wthrockmorton)March 21, 2021

There's a spellcheck actually built into Twitter.

Just how many times has The GOP misspelled "DEVESTATING" that the algorithm just said, "Yeah, I guess that's how they want to spell it. I did what I could".

Some very clever wits, back in the day.
