Friendly advice to Chris Cuomo: when mocking President Trump over a spelling mistake, try to avoid making a mistake yourself . . .
On CNN this morning, Cuomo went out of his way to note that in a tweet about James Comey, the prez misspelled “shady” as “shadey.” Continued Cuomo:
“unless [Trump was] maybe referring to Slim Shadey, the alternate persona of Eminem.”
Here’s the problem, Chris: Eminem spells it Slim Shady. Not Slim Shadey. Ruh-roh!
Here was Cuomo:
“Put that tweet back up there, just for a second, as a little bit of window into the mind. “Shadey James Comey,” Shadey as you see spelled incorrectly, unless maybe referring to Slim Shady, the alternate persona of Eminem . . . A misspelled word: not a big deal, something also that we’ve come to expect from the President of the United States.”
Note: Cuomo didn’t spell out Slim “Shadey.” But his comment only made sense if he was saying that Eminem spelled it “Shadey,” and thus that Trump wasn’t making a mistake if he spelled it that way.
Note segundo: All that was missing from the moment was a Breaking News Alert. And where was the Countdown Clock to a CNN town hall on the matter?
