Actor Chris Evans, a.k.a Captain America, shredded President Donald Trump on Twitter Monday afternoon after the president misspelled "counsel" while referencing White House Counsel Don McGahn, who, it was revealed over the weekend, has given more than 30 hours of witness testimony to Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
Trump tweeted Monday morning that "White House Councel" had met with Mueller "only with my approval, for purposes of transparency."
Disgraced and discredited Bob Mueller and his whole group of Angry Democrat Thugs spent over 30 hours with the Whit… https://t.co/PO5FmEeV8V— Donald J. Trump (@Donald J. Trump) 1534764525.0
Evans blasted the president's typo. "It’s ‘counsel’, Biff," Evans wrote. "The word is ‘counsel.'" Evans laid into the president for screwing up a word he must be quite familiar with by now.

Trump has a propensity for tweeting misspelled words, especially when he does so out of anger or frustration. Last month, Trump tweeted about his wife, "Melanie," rather than Melania. In other instances, Trump has deleted the typo-ridden tweets, which is a violation of the Presidential Records Act.
Over the weekend, the New York Times reported that McGahn has given more than 30 hours of witness testimony to Mueller, though the president maintains his lawyer was acting at his behest.
Twitter lauded Evans on his chastising of Trump, whose sloppy tweets continue to embarrass the American public.
Evans "snapped." Can't blame him.

Others responded directly to Trump, unhappy with his mistreatment of accomplished figures like Mueller.
Trump's go-to line of "13 angry Democrats" holds no water because "Robert Mueller is a highly respected professional FBI agent, a Republican and more importantly a US Marine."

Trump isn't in a position to call those investigating him "thugs."

Trump's tweets are also fodder for Mueller, who it has been reported is using them as evidence in his investigation into whether Trump obstructed justice by firing FBI Director James Comey.
