Trump Roasted for Misspelling First Lady’s Name in Tweet: ‘Who the F— Is Melanie?’

President Donald Trump tweeted a very sweet “welcome home” message regarding first lady Melania Trump, who was hospitalized this past week with a kidney condition — too bad he got her name wrong.

“Great to have our incredible First Lady back home in the White House. Melanie is feeling and doing really well. Thank you for all of your prayers and best wishes!” read the Saturday tweet.

Yes. You read that correctly. “Melanie.”

The post was deleted and replaced moments later with the typo corrected. “Melanie” was out and “Melania” was in.

Great to have our incredible First Lady back home in the White House. Melania is feeling and doing really well. Thank you for all of your prayers and best wishes!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 19, 2018

While a few on Twitter attributed the faux pas to autocorrect gone rogue…

I hope Melanie-gate inspires Trump to get Apple to do something about their out-of-control autocorrect software.

…and most wished the first lady a speedy recovery, others – including Howard Stern and Kathy Griffin – couldn’t help but poke fun at the pres.

“Relaxing with the cats and my wife Bith,” the shock jock wrote, referring to his wife Beth.

People are joking about Trump misspelling his wife’s name as “Melanie,” but if you look at any keyboard, the letter “e” is right next to “I don’t care how this broad spells her name.”

Alright I’ve said In the past that spelling errors in tweets shouldn’t be the focus…but you gotta spell your own wife’s name correctly. “Melanie” pic.twitter.com/V4WCrgoKcU

Sometimes I think POTUS misspells things just to troll. So we point it out, he deletes his tweet & then we just all “this tweet is unavailable” on our profiles. I don’t really think this. But it has crossed my mind.

The first lady underwent “an embolization procedure to treat a benign kidney condition,” the White House said in a statement Monday. The procedure was successful and there were no complications, but the FLOTUS remained at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and for the duration of the week.

‘SNL’ Weekend Update Host Michael Che: The Only Part of the Iran Nuclear Deal Trump Read Was Obama’s Signature

It was overall a relatively apolitical episode of “SNL” this week — the show’s intent was broadcast pretty clearly with a cold open sketch in which members of the cast brought their moms out on stage ahead of Mother’s Day, and they each complained (jokingly) about how political the show has gotten. But Weekend Update is still Weekend Update.

So as they always do, co-hosts Michael Che and Colin Jost devoted the first chunk of Weekend Update to slinging zingers at Trump and friends, from Trump’s decision to violate the Iran nuclear deal to the ongoing situations with Michael Cohen and Rudy Giuliani.

Below you’ll find a transcript of the first portion of Weekend Update, and you can watch it for yourself in the video embedded above should you so desire.

Colin Jost: “You know, I gotta admit, President Trump had a pretty good week. He helped secure the release of three American prisoners from North Korea, and when he greeted them at the airport he didn’t even say ‘Wait, I thought they were Americans.’ Trump bragged that him greeting the prisoners was probably the highest ever television ratings for 3 ‘clock in the morning. Which is not true. The 3 a.m. ratings record was set on election night by liberals hoping they were being pranked.”

Michael Che: “I mean, sure, this has been a decent week for Donald Trump. The same way a decent date with R. Kelly is to go home dry. Personally, I don’t like when Trump is this quiet. It’s like when I’m babysitting my nephew and he’s quiet for too long and I’m like like, ‘Oh no, he’s eating out of the litter box again, ain’t he.’

“According to a report, Michael Cohen was paid $600,000 by AT&T to advise them on their $85 billion merger. AT&T could not be reached for comment because they use A&T.”

Colin Jost: “It’s really funny to me that all these companies were paying Michael Cohen, this guy, for intelligence. He’s like if the word ‘durr’ became a person.”

Colin Jost: “This is true — Cohen named his shell company Essential Consultants, which could not sound more fake. It’s like a place George Costanza would pretend to work at. Meanwhile, President Trump attacked the Russia investigation and insisted that obstruction of justice is ‘a made up phony crime.’ Oh the crime you are accused of? That one’s made up? It’s funny how when it comes to immigration, Trump is like ‘the law is the law.’ When it comes to himself, he’s like ‘laws aren’t real. They’re just stories we make up to scare poor people.’ “

Michael Che: “President Trump announced that he would be withdrawing the U.S. from the Iran nuclear deal. And look, I’m not gonna pretend I know anything about the Iran deal, but Trump is. And you know the only part of that deal Trump has read was the signature on the bottom that said ‘Barack Obama.’ That’s all he needed. Trump is undoing so much of Obama’s work that Obama’s gonna start fading away in pictures like ‘Back to the Future.’ “

Colin Jost: “Rudy Giuliani has resigned from his law firm to become President Trump’s attorney full time. His first task will be to undo the damage he did working part-time.

“Attorney general Jeff Sessions announced that undocumented parents entering the U.S. would be separated from their children unless they can guess that his real name is Rumpelstiltskin.”

Michael Che: “First Lady Melania Trump — or as I’ve been calling her, sexy a– Michael Jackson — launched a campaign to stop cyber bullying called Be Best. As in, it would be best if you got a divorce.”

Seth Meyers Thinks It’s Hilarious That Trump Tried to Claim That He Keeps His Promises (Video)

Seth Meyers may have skipped doing “A Closer Look” or “The Check In” on “Late Night” on Tuesday, but of course that doesn’t mean he avoided politics. In fact, his quick-hitting opening monologue covered all of the weirdness of the day in the Trump administration, starting with Trump’s decision to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal that had pretty much everybody on all sides of the political spectrum and from all corners of the globe pretty peeved.

“President Trump today officially announced the US would pull out of the Iran nuclear deal. I have to say I’m kind of surprised. Usually when Trump doesn’t like a deal he just stays in it and violates all the terms,” Meyers joked to begin the monologue, displaying first a picture of Donald Trump with Melania, followed by that now-famous picture of Trump with Stormy Daniels to punctuate the sentence.

“President Trump announced today that the US will pull out of the Iran deal and said, quote, ‘When I make promises I keep them.’ Then Melania laughed so hard her mouth fell off.”

Also Read: Seth Meyers: ‘Trump and His Inner Circle Are Serial Habitual Liars. They Lie Constantly and They Do It on Purpose’ (Video)

From there, Meyers’ monologue was a fast and furious rundown of the news of the day. Here’s his joke about Trump being unable to make it very far into a practice session intended to prepare him for giving testimony to Robert Mueller.

“According to The Wall Street Journal, during a recent informal four-hour practice session for an interview with special counsel Robert Mueller, President Trump’s lawyers were only able to walk him through two questions. To be fair, number three was when they started to get tough. ‘And what’s your third child’s name?’ ‘Oh no, oh. Oh, I’m screwed. I want to say it’s not Barney.’ “

And here’s Meyers on a new report that Trump is pretty unhappy about the general Rudy Giuliani situation at the moment.

Also Read: Jimmy Kimmel: Rudy Giuliani’s Job Is to Be ‘Even Nuttier Than Trump’ (Video)

“According to CNN, President Trump has been flustered by the negative coverage generated by Rudy Giuliani’s recent interviews. As opposed to Giuliani, who is only flustered by lights, cameras, questions, and talking.”

And here’s Meyers on reports that Melania actually lives with her parents and not in the White House.

“White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders yesterday disputed reports that First Lady Melania Trump lives with her parents in Washington D.C. and not at the White House. While Rudy Giuliani went on Fox News and said she is and gave out the address. That’s right, Sarah Huckabee Sanders disputed a story claiming that Melania Trump lives with her parents and not President Trump. Though honestly, who can tell the difference?”

Kathy Griffin Takes a Poke at Melania Trump Over ‘Very Disturbing’ Comment

Being placed on a “kill list” apparently isn’t deterring Kathy Griffin from speaking her mind about the First Family.

The former “My Life on the D-List” star took a poke at Melania Trump on Tuesday for calling a photo seeming to depict Griffin posing with the decapitated head of President Trump “very disturbing.”

The jab came with a seeming dig at the Be Best children’s campaign unveiled by the Melania this week.

Also Read: Kathy Griffin Says She’s Been Placed on a ‘Kill List’

It also came accompanied by an Associated Press tweet from last year bearing the headline, “Melania Trump: Kathy Griffin’s video ‘very disturbing,’ ‘makes you wonder about mental health of person who did it.”

“#BeBest – When your husband is an erratic whack job who tweets crazy s— and actually puts the country in danger and you take the time as First Lady to question a photo of a comic holding a halloween mask and ketchup,” Griffin’s reply read.

Last May, after the photo made headlines, Melania Trump reportedly issued a statement reading, “As a mother, wife, and a human being, that photo is very disturbing. When you considering some of the atrocities happening in the world today, a photo opportunity like this is simply wrong and makes you wonder about the mental health of the person who did it.”

Also Read: Kathy Griffin Goes on Epic Trump Rant, Says Eric Trump Is ‘Date Rape’ (Video)

The fallout over the photo was considerable for Griffin, who was dropped from her annual gig co-hosting CNN’s New Year’s Eve coverage. After apologizing for the photo, Griffin later withdrew her apology.

On Monday, Griffin informed her Twitter followers that she “just found out that I’m on a brand new “Kill List.”

In a multi-part vent on the social-media platform, Griffin wrote, “I just found out I’m on a brand new ‘Kill List.’ Constant death threats and threats of violence toward me in very specific ways. None of the social media platforms I need to make a living and sell my tour tickets will step in and help at all.”

CNN Contributor April Ryan Dings Melania Trump as ‘Not Culturally American’

CNN contributor April Ryan was not impressed with Melania Trump’s “Be Best” campaign, saying that the first lady was not “culturally American.”

“This is a first lady who is not culturally American, but she is learning the ways,” Ryan told “OutFront” host Erin Burnett on Monday evening of the campaign.

The “Be Best” campaign, which was launched at the White House on Monday, will focus on children, specifically curbing opioid abuse and cyberbullying.

“This is not just an American issue. These are not just American issues. These are international issues. Cyberbullying is an international issue. Social media is international and also the opioid addiction issue, so it’s not just here, but it’s abroad as well” said Ryan, who went on to argue — as many others have — that Trump might not be the best representative of the campaign given her husband’s well-known history of cyberbullying.

“She’s well aware of his cyberbullying,” Ryan added. “He’s considered by some, well many I would say in different sectors, one of the biggest bullies.”

The clip was first flagged by the Washington Free Beacon.

Also Read: Melania Trump’s Spokesperson Has a Request About Stormy Daniels’ Coverage

In a statement from the Rose Garden on Monday afternoon, the first lady explained the initiative.

“As a mother and as first lady, it concerns me that in today’s fast-paced and ever-connected world, children can be less prepared to express or manage their emotions and oftentimes turn to forms of destructive or addictive behavior such as bullying, drug addiction or even suicide,” she said.

“I feel strongly that as adults we can and should be best at educating our children about the importance of a healthy and balanced life.”

Melania Trump was born in Slovenia and became an American citizen in 2006. It’s unclear what Ryan meant by the comment. CNN did not immediately respond to a request for clarification from TheWrap.
