Spellin' Is Also Hard

On sale through the Library of Congress...

The print was on sale at the Library of Congress online store for $16.95 until about 9:30 p.m. Sunday night. It’s not clear how many prints, if any, were recalled over the error.

The image is credited to John Rupert, creator of the graphic design firm Celebrating America, as the New York Daily News notes. A version of the portrait on the Celebrating America website is slightly cheaper and spelled correctly.

Perhaps the only thing more embarrassing than the misspelling on the Library of Congress portrait was the description on the product page (which has been archived): “This print captures the essence of Donald Trump’s campaign for the presidency of the United States.”

Indeed it does.

Recalled?  If you got one, keep it.  It's now a collector's item, and you're going to need to get something out of these next four years.
