Give peach a chance

So it turns out that grammar nazis are one type of nazi to whom Donald Trump isn't sympathetic. As this Washington Post article reveals, both Trump's hasty tweets and (more surprisingly) the official White House communications issued by his administration have been riddled with typos.

Some of the examples given are absolutely hilarious gems, but, as the article's author David Nakamura points out, it's perfectly possible that one such error could prove dangerous, damaging and costly in terms of diplomatic relations - take, for instance, getting President Xi Jinping's nationality wrong or confusing our prime minister with a porn star.

I didn't like the guy before; now I know he's not a fan of proofreading, he's gone down even further in my estimation.
