’s latest embarrassing typo was pretty petty. Literally.
The former president on Thursday used his Truth Social platform to accuse Judge Arthur Engoron, who is overseeing his civil fraud trial, of being a “radical left judge” after Engoron fined Trump $10,000 for violating a gag order that banned him from discussing his staff.
Trump also likened his former lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen’s confession, on the stand, to lying to Congress and in court to an episode of the fictional law series “Perry Mason.”
But Trump spelled “Perry” wrong.
Instead, he wrote “Petty.”
“It was like watching the end of the best Petty Mason episode, where the defendant breaks down and cries, ‘Yes, I did it, I did it, I did it,’” ranted Trump.
Critics were predictably petty in their replies:
My favorite episode of Petty Mason was the one where she complained to the judge about folks rolling their eyes at her lame ass presentation 🤣🤣🤣 pic.twitter.com/MckpcOrnDS

Donald Trump talking about Perry Mason–or even Petty Mason–shows his head is stuck in 1958, ffs.
I’m 3 years younger than he is. I’ve figured out that the 21st century has happened.

Mango Mussolini seems to think it’s TV lawyer Petty Mason, who actually would make a good addition to his legal team. He also should add Benny Colon, since his case is Bull and he’s an asshole. pic.twitter.com/yswa6IkEp6

“Petty Mason” and racist trope “Peekaboo” This is what The American people want in power. If so we are doomed
