In case you missed it, there's a big dumb motherfucker living in the White House these days. For example, spelling simple words like "tap" often proves to be a profoundly difficult task for this particular motherfucker. The dude is a dolt, albeit a dolt with an oversized ego. To continue our increasingly united national effort to poke as many holes in that ego as possible, Jimmy Kimmel conducted a special spelling bee event Monday night in which children were challenged to spell words incorrectly.

"This is not an ordinary spelling bee," Kimmel, introducing his audience to the Make America Grate Again Spelling Bee, said. "This spelling bee is presidential, which means you'll be asked to spell the words I give you not the way the liberal leftist dictionary spells them, but rather the way our president does, president Donald Jesus Trump."

The bee contestants were three top young spellers from the Los Angeles area, spanning from fourth to fifth grade. For each "correct" (i.e. unfathomably incorrect) word, the contestant stood to gain $100. Catch the full showdown up top to see kids attempt to Trump-ishly spell "tap," "ridiculous," "unprecedented," and more.

Though it may feel like we are living in a fever dream at this point, there was a time in American history—not all that long ago—in which we had someone in the White House who could both spell words correctly and construct sensible sentences.
