Holy Typo! Sean Spicer Tweets Tillerson’s a ‘True Patriot’ Who Has ‘Severed Our Nation’

Oh, Spicey.

After President Donald Trump announced he had ousted Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and was designating CIA Director Mike Pompeo to be the new SoS, a number of Trump administration figures and loyalists took to Twitter to thank Tillerson for his service and congratulate Pompeo.

One of those who wanted to declare that Pompeo was an excellent choice to take over the State Department was former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer. It appears, however, that Spicer was a little too quick when hitting send on that tweet.

As you can see in the tweet above, the ex-White House spokesperson called Tillerson a “true patriot that has severed our nation very well.”

Oof. Obviously, he meant “served our nation,” but man that is one heck of a typo.

Freudian slip much?

UPDATE 11:05 AM ET: After getting mocked for a bit on Twitter over the typo, Spicer tweeted out a correction.
