Donald Trump Jr. thought it’d be a good idea for him to enter the Georgia Senate runoff race, but his blatant Twitter typo led to online mockery and humiliation.
Attacking Georgia Senate Democratic candidates Jon Ossoff and Rev. Raphael Warnock, Junior called the two men “radicle,” clearly trying to brand them as “radical.”

As HuffPost notes, this isn’t the first time Don Jr. has proven his complete lack of spelling and proofreading skills when it comes the word “radical.”
“I don’t see anyone walking into a voting booth on November 3 & voting to give up 20-30% of their income by voting for Joe Biden’s radicle tax plans. I don’t see anyone voting to get rig of US Oil & Gas and watch gas & heating prices skyrocket”

Biden wants to “transform” America to CHOP.
Open your eyes people. The radicle left runs the party and they couldn’t be more clear with their intentions. https://t.co/jZgypSRVRv

In case you were wondering, “radicle” is a word, and it’s defined by Merriam-Webster as “the lower part of the axis of a plant embryo or seedling,” which is quite clearly not what Junior was attempting to convey.
It didn’t take long before Don Jr. was getting pilloried on social media:
