George Takei, the Star Trek actor and political activist, just responded to President Trump’s latest batch of tweets with a cogent observation on human nature and education.
Trump was excoriated on Twitter today after it took him three attempts to spell the word “heal” correctly in his tweet about today’s massive showing of counter-protesters in Boston.
Takei saw the president’s valiant effort at 3rd-grade spelling exercises and couldn’t resist tweeting out his comment on the situation.
You can teach a man to hate, or you can teach him to spell, but apparently not both. pic.twitter.com/RqXOKPQpCG

So far Trump has been excelling at hatred, but failing at spelling. He’s not doing very good in the “works well with others” category either.
