However, when typing out the tweet, the president misspelled “smoking” twice, writing “smocking” instead each time.
“Democrats can’t find a Smocking Gun tying the Trump campaign to Russia after James Comey’s testimony. No Smocking Gun…No Collusion.” @FoxNews That’s because there was NO COLLUSION. So now the Dems go to a simple private transaction, wrongly call it a campaign contribution,…” Trump wrote in a series of tweets on Monday morning. “….which it was not (but even if it was, it is only a CIVIL CASE, like Obama’s – but it was done correctly by a lawyer and there would not even be a fine. Lawyer’s liability if he made a mistake, not me). Cohen just trying to get his sentence reduced. WITCH HUNT!”
However, the “smocking” typo quickly caught the eyes of people on Twitter, for not just being the latest time the president has used “smocking” when he meant “smoking,” but also because “smocking” is an embroidery technique.
Soon #SmockingGun was trending on Twitter, and people were cracking jokes.

In his tweet, Trump claimed his payment of hush money to women was not a campaign finance violation and went after former President Barack Obama, whose campaign in 2008 failed to report certain contributions to the FEC.
