First lady Melania Trump had surgery at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center early this week, and today President Trump welcomed her home with a tweet that spelled her name wrong.

Here’s his original tweet, which was deleted.

A few minutes after posting, he corrected the typo and sent another message.

 

While it’s understandable that mistakes happen, a few celebrity tweeters couldn’t help but roast POTUS for his typo.

Howard Stern, who has said he is friendly with the president, but was vocal with his support for Hillary Clinton, made a joke about the typo (no his wife is not named Bith).

 

Comedian Kathy Griffin, who took a lot of heat last year for a photoshoot with Trump’s disembodied head, didn’t hold back.

 

And the former digital director of Full Frontal with Samantha Bee explained how keyboards work.

The first lady has been hospitalized for the past week with a kidney condition. On Monday the White House released a statement saying“This morning, First Lady Melania Trump underwent an embolization procedure to treat a benign kidney condition. The procedure was successful and there were no complications. Mrs. Trump is at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and will likely remain there for the duration of the week. The First Lady looks forward to a full recovery so she can continue her work on behalf of children everywhere.”
