Trump Mixes Up 'Consequential' With 'Consensual' In Gloating Tweet
Just a day after he declared himself a “very stable genius” and “like, really smart,” President Donald Trump mixed up the word “consequential” with “consensual” in an embarrassing tweet.
The screwup appeared in a Sunday night tweet in which Trump praised a supportive column in the New York Post. Writer Michael Goodwin lauded Trump’s “enormously consequential presidency,” but Trump referred to it in his tweet as an “enormously consensual presidency.”
It took dumbass President @realDonaldTrump an hour of Twitter mocking him before he noticed. #ConsensualPresidency pic.twitter.com/hbHsaiPORQ

When Trump asked readers to check out the entire piece, he also mistakenly posted Goodwin’s email address instead of a link to the column. In addition, he used an ellipsis in his tweet to conveniently skip over Goodwin’s remark about his “own frustration” over Trump’s “missteps.”
America's Stable Genius just tweeted out a writer's email address instead of the link to his story.
I guess we're supposed to email him and ask for a copy.#consensualpresidency. pic.twitter.com/7OcCnHiMeT

Someone quickly noticed the gaffe before it was changed (and “missteps” added). By then, Twitter had gone wild and the hashtag #consensualpresidency was born. Several tweeters called it a “Freudian slip” because of Trump’s controversial “grab ’em by the pussy” comment to “Access Hollywood.”
....Freudian slip there? #ConsensualPresidency
Just say no, everyone.

A "consensual presidency" is when one grabs a country by the pussy and they let you, because you're a star. https://t.co/0bmKFMGSyL

There are at least 19 women who kept telling us Trump didn't know what "consensual" meant.

MSNBC’s Joy Reid couldn’t help but notice the timing of the phrase “consensual presidency” just as women were appearing in black at the Golden Globes to protest sexual harassment.
