President Donald Trump got stuck on a big word yet again, this time while delivering a speech in a rally in Jacksonville, Florida, on Wednesday, September 24. 

The word in question was "unconstitutional." The POTUS was blazing through a speech he was reading from the teleprompter when he caught himself fumbling on the word "unconstitutional." After failing to pronounce it once, he tried to do it two more times but failed on both occasions. With a big smile and waving of his hands, he tried to make up for his goof-up. 

"These fall of justices would release violent criminal, shield foreign terrorists, impose sanctuary cities and declare the death penalty totally unconstitution," said Trump, instead of "unconstitutional." The last word came out of his mouth a little warped. He gave it another try by going back to his comments and saying, "Hey, it will be totally unconstitutional." Even the second time the word did not sound right, so he tried a third time. "They wanna declare it unconstitutional," he said, which sounded better but not quite there. After a third attempt, he carried on with the rest of his speech. 

The clip of the gaffe was posted by Vox reporter Aaron Rupar, which quickly went viral on Twitter. "Trump sounds like he's Gregorian chanting until he botches reading the word 'unconstitutional'" he captioned the post. 



 

"We can read him like a book now. When he realizes he has screwed up, he stops as though he hasn't finished his sentence, then repeats the word, correctly this time. It is as obvious as hell," one wrote, while another said, "He has proven time and time again his comprehension skills are right out the window. he reads in monotones because he is just concentrating on getting words out while not understanding what he is reading. learning disorder." A third commented, "When he catches himself messing up on a word he stops and riffs then goes back to his script. He’s so predictable." A fourth remarked, "When Trump does this 'Gregorian chanting' business, to me he sounds like the ghost of Jacob Marley from 'A Christmas Carol'. He thinks he sounds presidential. Ha! Ha!" A fifth said, "I love how every time he effs up a word, he has to repeat it correctly once or twice. It's like we're supposed to forget the misspeak."



 



 



 



 



 

And the internet wasn't quite done mocking the president since this was not the first time that he had mispronounced a word during a speech. "It’s always a treat when he learns some brand new information mid-sentence, in the reading of his own speech," one of them said, while another noted, "I know I was joking but there really is something wrong with him. He seems to think he’s Spartacus." A third wrote, "It’s pretty obvious that whenever he’s aware that he messed up a word (sometimes he’s not aware), he interrupts himself with a 'hey' or something like that." A fourth user commented, "Yo semites, another word that he can’t quite get unconstitutional You’d think he’d have that one down pat" A fifth remarked, "Observed: He has those jerky shoulder motions, skin looks sweaty. Words slurred. Also, audience looks bored to tears."
