The President of the United States just attempted to make up for his first appalling tweet in which he smeared the 40,000 people protesting neo-Nazis in Boston as “police agitators” with a follow-up – but he ended up humiliating himself, twice.
Anatomy of one Donald Trump tweet. Third time's a charm. pic.twitter.com/OlVh0qa0y3

The first tweet said our nation was divided for just a decade and misspelled “heel.”
The President, who has never been good with words and is known for his aversion to reading, just misspelled “heal.”
On the third try, the President finally got it right.
Our great country has been divided for decades. Sometimes you need protest in order to heal, & we will heal, & be stronger than ever before!

But it’s too little, too late. Trump already made it clear where his loyalties lie, and all the follow-up tweets in the world ring hollow when you’ve already made it clear on multiple occasions that you would rather side with the Nazis rather than the people protesting them.
third time's the charm. seems fitting that he can spell "agitator" but not "heal." https://t.co/AQSNayMILG
