Attorney Marc Kasowitz is President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, and also the latest target for trolls.
After Kasowitz released a statement Thursday that included the typo “Predisent,” he was beset by social media trolls, defined as people who intentionally start arguments or try to upset others with inflammatory words and/or images to amuse themselves and people that sympathize with them.
Kasowitz’s statement, released prior to him delivering it at the National Press Club, related to testimony given by former FBI Director James Comey to members of the Senate Thursday. In the statement, Kasowitz castigated Comey for leaking potentially privileged information contained in memos of conversations Comey had with President Trump, while Comey was still a federal appointee. Kasowitz also used the statement to deny accusations Comey made about requests and statements Trump made.
Some Twitter trolls were not focused on the entire content of the statement, preferring to target it’s first line: “I am Marc Kasowitz, Predisent Trump’s personal lawyer.” Attempting to be clever and seemingly immune from making mistakes themselves, they responded with criticism. Whether they were amusing others or just themselves, you can be the judge.
