Donald Trump misspelled his target’s name in a recent tweet — and the media is so wrapped up in The Donald’s machinations that at least one reporter thinks the error was Trump being clever. Trump warned the family that owns the Chicago Cubs — the Ricketts — that they should be careful. He’s heard they’re spending money against his campaign, so Trump’s reaction is to write: “They better be careful. They have a lot to hide!”
I hear the Rickets family, who own the Chicago Cubs, are secretly spending $’s against me. They better be careful, they have a lot to hide!

Note that Trump misspelled Ricketts. That’s common enough on Twitter, a medium where misspellings are customarily overlooked. But is Trump misspelling the name to show his superiority? As a dis? Chris Cwik, in an article featured at Yahoo, asks: “Is that just a regular typo, or Trump’s way of reminding the family that they are just haters and losers to him? With Trump, it could go either way.” Wow, Trump makes a mistake and it’s strategy. Trump is really in people’s heads now.
