President Donald Trump slammed former FBI lawyer Lisa Page for her refusal to appear before Congress despite a subpoena being issued.
And while the president had harsh words for her and “her lover, FBI Agent Peter Strzok,” it was one word in Trump’s tweet on Wednesday that grabbed all the attention.

He referred to Page as “Ex-FBI LAYER” instead of “lawyer.”
Ex-FBI LAYER Lisa Page today defied a House of Representatives issued Subpoena to testify before Congress! Wow, but is anybody really surprised! Together with her lover, FBI Agent Peter Strzok, she worked on the Rigged Witch Hunt, perhaps the most tainted and corrupt case EVER!

This set off an epic wave of snickering from many on Twitter – except liberals, of course.
“LAYER”…Not a typo…snickering….??? https://t.co/VvSQ3Tqihb

Definitely not a typo. Most savage @POTUS ever ??

I love it Trump has renamed Lisa “Layer Lisa”.
The dems don’t get it but we do.?

Ouch! Nailed it!
Pun intended ?.

Was it accidental or an intentionally made typo by the president? A report earlier this year suggested that Trump’s tweets are written for him by White House aides and formulated to mimic his online voice.
With all the “coupling” going on at the FBI there could be layers of layers.

But the president’s son, Donald Trump Jr., finally offered some clarity, responding to a tweet by Dilbert creator, Scott Adams.
“Layer” ??????????? Best Presidential typo ever. Unless it wasn’t a typo. In which case it is even better. https://t.co/IK3hcCn2sj

Based on what was going on there I’m reasonably sure that’s not a typo. https://t.co/Asf3w2yqas
— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) July 11, 2018
I think that’s it. Don Jr said he’s reasonably sure it’s not a typo. POTUS is master troller.

The president was named a troll master for the tweet which he sent while overseas in Brussels for the NATO summit. Trump again slammed special counsel Robert Mueller’s “Rigged Witch Hunt” of which Page and Strzok, who were having an extra marital affair, were members of.
Liberals were instantly offended by Trump’s ‘typo’ for every reason.
Trump is a horrible misogynist woman hater to refer to a woman lawyer as a “LAYER”

Mr. President, YOU, sir, be you President or not, have always been and will remain a steadfast moron.
By the way, it’s “lawyer,” not “LAYER.”
— RealEM (@EMartiros) July 12, 2018
We are now at the point where I genuinely can’t tell if our president intentionally said “LAYER” to make a sexually demeaning comment about an American citizen… or just misspelled “lawyer”. pic.twitter.com/RHWbIVJr2N

There was even some trolling by Dictionary.com.
Layer: A person or thing that lays.

But many agreed Trump won the internet with his stealthy typo.
This may be his greatest tweet ever!
— Amerinaut (@amerinaut) July 12, 2018
GEOTUS @realDonaldTrump doesn’t make mistakes.
We’re witnessing the best trolling of our lifetime: Trump says it like it is.
This is exactly why we elected him and exactly why he’ll have an overwhelming victory for when he’s re-elected in 2020.

Might be my favorite #POTUS tweet so far! Dyin’! ???

“LAYER” IS ACTUALLY A VERY APPROPRIATE TITLE FOR HER! She wasn’t only plotting with Peter Strozk to “Stop” Trump… they were also in the sack while plotting on Trump! So she is indeed a lawyer and a layer… ?

She made her bed! ???
