While MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow criticises what POTUS does and the male late-night hosts of the world make funnies about what he says, The Good Copy’s own Meredith Forrester focuses squarely on the bananas ways in which he tweets.
For months, Meredith has been correcting Donald Trump’s tweets with suggestions for how he could better handle his grammar and punctuation decisions. And now she’s packaged these excellent dressings-down into a zine called Okay But.
In her own words: ‘I’ve been quoting Drumpf’s grammatically iffy tweets and offering him suggested fixes in 140 characters. My zine comprises screenshots of most of those tweets alongside longer explanations that are limited by the page grid. It’s not exhaustive and I’m not a pedant; I want to explain his grammatical issues in a way that anyone, even the president of the United States, can understand.’
Okay But is a Risograph-printed study that will make you smarter and wish he were too.
Here’s a sample tweet:
Arnold Schwarzenegger isn’t voluntarily leaving the Apprentice, he was fired by his bad (pathetic) ratings, not by me. Sad end to great show
Okay but you should’ve thought twice about using the preposition ‘by’ because the ratings, bad or otherwise, didn’t actually do the firing
