Twitter trolls Trump on 'heal' vs. 'heel' typo

One of President Trump's advisers during the campaign repeatedly tried to set up a meeting between the Trump campaign and Russian officials last year, 'The Washington Post' reported.: Merriam-Webster, which has trolled the president before, tweeted out a quick reminder on the words' definitions.<br /> © Evan Vucci, AP Merriam-Webster, which has trolled the president before, tweeted out a quick reminder on the words' definitions.
When sending out a response to the counterprotest in Boston that quelled a "Free Speech" rally on Saturday, President Trump attempted to tweet a message about the country needing protest in order to "heal." 

Except the first tweet didn't go quite as planned.

Nor the second.

Trump's third tweet read, "Our great country has been divided for decades. Sometimes you need protest in order to heal, & we will heal, & be stronger than ever before!"

But some Twitter users captured the typos in screenshots

Some thought that Trump might have been correct the first two times.

Or that it "heel" was still a typo, but that maybe he didn't mean "heal."

Others were a bit more subtle.

Some combined the "heel" typo with one of Trump's more memorable Twitter moments.

And of course, #heel started trending.
