“Good Luck to Bob Kraft, Tom Brady and Coach Bob Belichick tonight,” Trump tweeted to his nearly 2 million followers.

“Bob Belichick,” of course, is not a person, while Bill Belichick is indeed the head coach of the New England Patriots.

No word yet on whether or not there is some strange Bob Belichick out there in the world who deserved such wishes, but chances are, it was just a typo. Fortunately for Trump, he’s got 2 million editors looking out for him … so a few folks were sure to help him out.
