Why Donald Trump Jr's a moro&

He can't even spell SNL!

comedyDonald Trump Jr last night gave critics more ammunition to mock him – as if it were needed – by managing to misspell a three-letter abbreviation.

The President's son tried to take a swipe at the long-running satirical show Saturday Night Live, one of his father's lengthy list of nemeses, but somehow managed to contract it to S&L rather than SNL.

Presumably he reckoned the stood for 'and' as in rock 'n' roll, rhythm 'n' blues, Guns 'N' Roses… or he confused it with Savings and Loans, the financial institutions at the heart of a 1980s scandal.

The howler came as he responded to a tweet from a supporter depicting Democrat rivals as wanting to kill babies, outlaw private health care, confiscate guns, and heavily tax their opponents – parroting all the President's non-wall-based slogans.

'It's almost like a funny version of an S&L skit,' said the 41-year-old, who is executive vice-president of the Trump Organization.

Comedians let the slip go and drew no comment at all about it.

Well, not quite.

Or maybe Trump Jr was using S&L in the context of dating sites: Single & Looking.
