Trump Misspelled Name Of Reporter And Ended Up Attacking a Random Teen On Twitter — Watch Jimmy Kimmel’s Response
President Donald Trump did the “unthinkable” this past weekend and “lashed out at Fox News” on Twitter. Trump also inadvertently attacked a random California teen named Jillian Turner and Jimmy Kimmel had a run with it.
“Never thought I’d say this but I think @johnrobertsFox and @JillianTurner @FoxNews have even less understanding of the Wall negotiations than the folks at FAKE NEWS CNN & NBC!” Trump tweeted.
“Wow,” Kimmel replied. “Donald Trump attacking Fox News is like Trader Joe attacking the Fearless Flyer. It’s unheard of.
“But the best part of the tweet from our stable genius leader is that he misspelled Gillian Turner,” the host continued, explaining that “the Gillian Turner from Fox News spells Gillian with a ‘G.’”
“In his trademark haste, he accidentally tweeted at Jillian Turner with a ‘J,’ who turns out to be a teenager from Weed, California,” Kimmel said, “which is where he should be living by the way.” Trump later deleted and replaced his tweet, tagging the correct person.
“SO THAT HAPPENED,” Turner, a high school student with less than 500 followers, tweeted in response:

“That’s gotta be a surprise,” Kimmel added. “Do we really think he knows the difference between North and South Korea? Because I don’t know.”
