Trump Retweets ‘Anti-Capitalist, Antifascist’ to Mock Conservative Writer’s Misspelling

President Donald Trump has mocked conservative writer Jennifer Rubin for misspelling former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s surname. The Washington Post opinion writer spelled the Democratic candidate’s name ‘Bloombefg’ in a tweet on Wednesday night.

(Jennifer Rubin), the wacko ‘conservative’ of the Washington Post, must learn how to spell the name Bloomberg before it is too late & he is gone!” Trump tweeted.

The hypocrisy of this criticism was quickly apparent to users on Twitter. Trump has frequently tweeted misspellings and bizarre words, including the infamous ‘covfefe’, and has even misspelled his own wife’s first name.

Perhaps more interesting, however, is that the Twitter user whom Trump retweeted, Eldon Katz, identifies himself as a ‘ data & politics geek, worker co-op devotee, anti-capitalist, antifascist, anti-zionist Jew’. His profile also contains the hashtags ‘class war is real’ and ‘no human is illegal.’

This is not the first time that Trump has inadvertently retweeted a Twitter account that very obviously does not support him or his policies. Katz appears to be a supporter of Senator Bernie Sanders and his pinned tweet criticizes ‘every Christian supremacist, ruling class bootlicker.’
