Merriam-Webster Trolled Trump After Making This Rookie Grammatical Error
Merriam-Webster’s Twitter account decided to take Donald Trump back to grade school to teach him a lesson on grammar.
On Monday, Trump tweeted out on his personal account that acting Attorney General Sally Yates should be asked “under oath, if she knows how classified information got into the newspapers soon after she explained it to the W.H. Counsel.”
Ask Sally Yates, under oath, if she knows how classified information got into the newspapers soon after she explained it to W.H. Counsel.

Merriam-Webster noticed Trump’s mistake and decided to troll him on their Twitter account. They made sure Trump knew the difference between the words “counsel” and “council.”
