On Wednesday President Donald Trump gave a press conference in the Rose Garden to address the Mueller investigation and other ongoing investigations. While the President’s threat to not address needed infrastructure maintenance and repairs is not funny, his handwritten notes for his latest press appearance are proving otherwise.
Dan Eggen of The Washington Post shared a photo of Trump’s handwritten notes taken by Post photographer Jabin Botsford. Eggen captioned his Twitter share:
“Trump notes captured by [Jabin Botsford]:
‘They want to impeach me over acts that they did’ ‘Dems have no achomlishments [sic]'”
— Dan Eggen (@DanEggenWPost) May 22, 2019
Botsford shared his photo as well.

People shared different angles and perspectives of the photo to capture all of the handwritten notes’ contents.

I think one of his former staff members stated he had the intelligence of a 5th or 6th grade kid. Seems about right!

I think a 5th grade kid would know there’s a “p” in accomplishment

right? just sound that out, ya know?

“Achomlishments” stood out for many people.
“Dems have no achomlishments” He’s like a dumpster fire, if the dumpster was sentient, and walked around screaming “NO YOURE ON FIRE” to everyone along its path. https://t.co/EGBuvbHuZu

Judge a man not by his spelling but by his achomlishments
— Roger Wilson (@civicdec) May 23, 2019
In his own handwritten notes, Trump scribbled down that Dems have no “achomlishments”.

Imagine the jobs you wouldn’t get if your cover letter said achomlishments

So he doesn’t slur his words. He just thinks they’re spelled that way. Achomlishments. Anonimush. Oranges. That’s just how he spells those words.

Saw this trending and immediately knew which idiot embarrassed us. #achomlishments
— Deon (@imnottayediggs) May 23, 2019
The fact that he even needs notes is embarrassing enough. I see our Democratic presidential hopefuls, speak well without any notes. The Moron’s not literate enough to speak on his own.

And of course, then came the jokes.
But when you’re on that much Adderall it sounds dif-er-aunt.

“Achomlishments” was not the only word questioned.
— Nadia C. Whuddumsayin (@whuddumsayin) May 23, 2019
Some Democrats decided to share their “achomlishments” for the President.
HR1 Ethics Reform
Offered RX drug bills
Minimum wage increase
Secure preex conditions
Move Paycheck Fairness Act
Expand background checks
Trump held accountable
Strengthen VAWA https://t.co/oEn5neevd5

This is not the first time President Trump’s notes drew attention. His note cards for a meeting with the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School also required close scrutiny.
Once again people remarked on the President’d use of a permanent marker to write.
Totally normal man makes business notes with a Sharpie.
— CK (@HRCDemocrat) May 23, 2019
Small to giant handwriting something something Dementia, madness etc.
— PancakesAreMyFriends (@Dredwine) May 23, 2019
Plus a damn Sharpie??
Has he lost the fine motor control to hold a normal ballpoint?
— Hilary #VetsforGunReform (@CPTDisgruntled) May 23, 2019
Could be eyesight.
— xyphophorus (@xyphophorus) May 23, 2019
Some of his struggles with teleprompters could be chalked up to eyesight too. He’s convinced he has exceptional genes, and that plus an unhealthy vanity may prevent him from using glasses.

At least it not written with crayon.

Trump’s impromptu remarks—complete with signage and prepared handwritten misspelled notes aside—may be humorous on some level. But the purpose should be noted.
President Donald Trump told Democratic leaders and the people of the United States that no infrastructure needs will be met unless all investigations into his potentially illegal activities cease.
And that is no laughing matter.
