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.
Great to have our incredible First Lady back home in the White House. Melania is feeling and doing really well. Thank you for all of your prayers and best wishes!

While it’s understandable that mistakes happen, a few celebrity tweeters couldn’t help but roast POTUS for his typo.
Relaxing with the cats and my wife Bith.

Comedian Kathy Griffin, who took a lot of heat last year for a photoshoot with Trump’s disembodied head, didn’t hold back.
People are joking about Trump misspelling his wife’s name as “Melanie,” but if you look at any keyboard, the letter “e” is right next to “I don’t care how this broad spells her name.”

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.”
