Donald Trump gets Melania’s name wrong as she leaves hospital

Melania Trump has left hospital and is now recovering at home after undergoing kidney surgery.

Her husband the President, made the announcement via Twitter, but there was something a little off about his choice of words.

Thanks to an unfortunate typo, he said, “Great to have our incredible First Lady back home in the White House. Melanie is feeling and doing really well.”

Naturally, the tweet was quickly amended, but not before other social media users had a good chuckle at Donald’s expense.

There were a lot of “Who the f**k is Melanie?”s going around, but our favourite reactions are the ones below:

The error comes after questions were raised over the President’s whereabouts when Melania was admitted to hospital.

He tweeted about being on his way over to see her after it was revealed her surgery had been successful. Then his schedule for that morning started circulating, and showed that he didn’t have that jam-packed a day.
