This showed up in my Facebook feed today:
It was being posted by people who are definitely not Trump supporters, so I clicked over to see what was up.
Go ahead, click. Take a look. I’ll wait. Oh, you can’t, because they removed it a little while ago.
But don’t worry, I got screenshots.
Do you see it?
How about now?
Yeah. The inauguration portrait of Donald Trump that was being sold by the Library of Congress has a typo.
When I looked at the site earlier today the print was already sold out. I don’t know how long it had been on sale and if any had been sent out yet. And if they had been sent out, I don’t know if the actual prints had the typo, or if it’s just on the website. Either way, the accompanying copy sums it up pretty well:
Printed in the USA, this print captures the essence of Donald Trump’s campaign for the presidency of the United States.
It really, really does.
And I have no way of knowing if it was a genuine typo, or a small bit of defiance by someone who works for the Library of Congress. But I’m tempted to believe the latter.
All I know is, it’s wildly appropriate for this man who proudly proclaims that he does not read extensively.
