Aussies Are Losing The Plot After President Trump Accidentally Tweeted The Word Moot
The President of the United States tweets a lot. There's no denying that.
He is known to fire off a load of tweets every day that range from attacking Democrats, tearing down the press, to rallying his die-hard supporters that would do anything for him. He's also known, from time to time, to make the odd spelling mistake.

It happens to everyone however it's a little embarrassing when you're the leader of a country and when people pay a lot of attention to your tweets.
But it's even funnier when the misspelling takes on a life of its own under the right circumstance. That's just happened with President Trump after he lashed out at the world media for reporting a story about him wanting snakes and alligators to keep watch at his border wall.
In his initial tweet however, the US leader wrote 'moot' instead of 'moat'.

If you're from outside of Australia, then that will probably mean nothing to you because the official definition of moot is 'having little or no practical relevance, typically because the subject is too uncertain to allow a decision'.
However, in some parts of the Land Down Under, moot, when pronounced correctly, also means a vagina. So, for Aussies, this tweet is rather hilarious.
"That makes it approximately 17x funnier," one person wrote on Twitter when the typo was pointed out.
"This is more interesting than the original tweet," said another.
While this is a very small chuckle, the original story is just as hilarious that the President allegedly suggested his staff look into how to beef up security at his US-Mexico border wall.
Donald Trump toyed with the idea of surrounding the border with a water-filled trench stocked with snakes and alligators - asking his aides to find out how much doing such a thing would cost, according to a new book.
It has been claimed that the President of the United States also suggested that soldiers should shoot migrants but when he was told that was illegal he later proposed shooting them in the legs in a bid to slow them down.
'Border Wars: Inside Trump's Assault on Immigration' is a new book written my New York Times Washington correspondent Michael D. Shear and Julie Hirschfeld Davis who write about how Trump, 73, spoke about the alligator-filled moat during a private meeting.
The book also suggests that the POTUS planned to electrify the border wall and add spikes to the tip that could pierce human flesh so that it couldn't be climbed over.
