Trump’s latest comes as #SniffyMcAdderall trends at #2.
President Trump pointed to gains in the stock market on Thursday as evidence of a strong economy under his presidency, imploring Americans to check how their “409Ks” were doing. The erroneous reference to “409ks” — which appeared to be a typo — drew fire on social media, with critics of Trump mocking the president for his early-morning mixup.
STOCK MARKET AT ALL-TIME HIGH! HOW ARE YOUR 409K’S DOING? 70%, 80%, 90% up? Only 50% up! What are you doing wrong?

409K? The constant typos matter. They underline Trump’s lifelong inability to focus on details. https://t.co/Dj4IFLggSh
