Everyone’s loving Cory Booker’s sweet Donald Trump burn on Twitter

Cory Booker might have made a typo, but he also turned it into a sick burn.

Cory Booker is a Rhodes Scholar who got his undergraduate degree at Stanford and went on to attend both the University of Oxford and Yale Law School, where he received his law degree.

But that doesn’t mean he’s immune from the occasional typo.

While tweeting about the possibility of Amazon building a new headquarters in his home city of Newark, the senator accidentally typed “I proud” instead of “I’m proud,” which, of course, people weren’t going to let slide.

For the record, Booker has yet to confirm or deny that he will run for president in 2020, but if he does, he certainly doesn’t see a poorly constructed tweet holding him back.

Bam! Shots fired!

Naturally, Twitter is loving the not-so-subtle shade throwing.

Although a few people chimed in say they hope the next POTUS sets a slightly higher bar.

It’s a safe bet that, regardless of whether or not he decides to run for president, Booker will keep a closer eye on his tweets in the future, although if he does make a mistake, he always has that story about carrying a woman out of a burning house to fall back on.
