The official White House Snapchat account misspelled the title of Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos as “Secretary of Educatuon” during Monday’s annual White House Easter Egg Roll.

Spelling and the U.S. Department of Education. Ironic much? The Snapchat was taken down almost instantly, but not fast enough to avoid a screenshot. MSNBC’s Kyle Griffin captured the mistake and shared it on Twitter, where everyone’s had a good laugh at it.

It’s not the first time the Trump administration made high-profile spelling mistakes. The Library of Congress sold a print of President Donald Trump’s inauguration photo with a quote from his inauguration speech. “No dream is too big, no challenge is to great. Nothing we want for the future is beyond our reach,” it read.

That “to” instead of “too” can make quite a difference.
