The White House press secretary on Thursday made the latest in a string of apparently accidental tweets, announcing incorrectly that Donald Trump, the president of the United States, was just confirmed to be the secretary of Housing and Urban Development.
The tweet was quickly deleted, but not before it was archived for eternity.
In fact, the Senate on Thursday confirmed former neurosurgeon and 2016 Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson as HUD secretary.
Spicer has a complicated history with technology. In January, the press secretary appeared to tweet his password to the world—twice. And last month, the internet discovered that he had a public Venmo account, which resulted in unnumbered people asking him for money.
