This is a shocker!

"Our great country has been divided for decades," he wrote. "Sometimes you need protest in order to heal, & we will heal, & be stronger than ever before!"

"I want to applaud the many protestors in Boston who are speaking out against bigotry and hate," he continued. "Our country will soon come together as one!"


I'm speechless.

Yes they do, but twice in the same sentence for the same word?

Cue the posters saying "But how much money do you have?"

Ann Coulter is the poster child for cray cray. It does illustrate how Bannon's defeat has fractured the base.

pretty confident that it's a misspelling over a typo since it happens twice.

not a big deal but amusing since one of the definitions of "heel" would completely change the message of the tweet.

Having been a professional editor/proofreader for 18 years, I can tell you from experience that smart people generate plenty of typos. He clearly meant heal.

agreed, i have similar experience. but the same word misspelled the same way in the same sentence? that points to an ignorance of the correct spelling over a misstep on the keyboard.

But I'm not sure how many smart folks make the same spelling mistake twice in less than 140 characters, and fail to correct the mistake until the third edit. What is plausible isn't the same as what is possible.
