Donald Trump fired off a tweet on Monday that was intended to defend Judge Brett Kavanaugh, the embattled Supreme Court nominee who is accused of sexual misconduct. But the president slammed what he called “false acquisitions” against the judge when he meant to write “false accusations.”
Trump deleted the tweet after about 10 minutes and replaced it with the correct spelling, but the original was preserved in screenshots:
"False Acquisitions" are when you buy companies planning to put them in bankruptcy.— Dave Hogg (@stareagle) September 25, 2018
"False Accusations" are when you attack a sexual-assault victim and accuse her of partisan motives.
False Acquisitions sounds like a crappy jazz vocal ensemble. #FalseAcquisitions— Steve Hageman (@HisProf1974) September 25, 2018
No, when you funnel money to porn stars and Playboy bunnies to buy their silence, to create the false impression that you didn’t have affairs with them and/or get them to have abortions, those are “False Acquisitions.” pic.twitter.com/t1mX2kKFB5— Mrs. Betty Bowers (@BettyBowers) September 25, 2018

False Acquisitions? I preferred the gentle metre and rhyme of “covfefe”.— vbspurs (@vbspurs) September 25, 2018
“False Acquisitions” is a pretty good tagline to describe Trump properties.— Daniel W. Drezner (@dandrezner) September 25, 2018

I was having my covfefe in Starbucks tonight when some guy wearing a #MAGA hat came in and started making false acquisitions against everybody. I told him to be careful, because Obama had the place wiretapped and could hear everything he was saying. #FalseAcquisitions@POTUS— John Harte (@jhdps) September 25, 2018
Nah, I’d say your acquisition of the presidency was far more false. #FalseAcquisitions— Matt Schur (@LutheranHusker) September 25, 2018
TFW when you’ve been stuck in UN meetings all day but you’ve been holding on to some truly A+ tweets for when you get back to your hotel room… #falseacquisitions— Ryan Molnar (@Ryan_Molnar) September 25, 2018
