Twitter Users Notice Mistake In New Trump Hats (Photos)

President Donald Trump and the Republicans are getting ribbed on Twitter for making two mistakes while attempting to sell special green edition "Make America Great Again" hats to commemorate St. Patrick's Day.

The Republican National Committee took to Twitter on March 2 to promote the sale of green "Make America Great Again" hats in honor of St. Patrick's Day, The Huffington Post reported.

"Need a #MAGA hat for St. Patty’s Day? Get it here" the GOP tweeted, providing a link to where supporters of President Trump can purchase the hat.

But Twitter users were quick to notice two errors in the GOP's tweet. The first error was the misspelling of St. Paddy's Day. The second was that the hat used the wrong symbol to commemorate the holiday.

"If you knew anything about Ireland you would have a shamrock and not clover on the cap," tweeted one observer.

"That's not a Shamrock! Make America Smart Again #MASA not #MAGA," wrote another.

"Guess you used a 4-leaf clover instead of a shamrock to symbolize the trinity+Trump," tweeted another user.

According to legend, St. Patrick used the three leaves of a shamrock as a visual metaphor when preaching about the Christian Trinity.

"Can #Trump please not associate himself with Ireland? We really don't want anything to do with him - also a shamrock only has three leaves," wrote another Twitter user.

Other Twitter users focused more on the GOP misspelling the shortened name for the holiday.

"It's Paddy's not Patty's... Saint Patrick wasn't a burger #PaddyMeat," wrote one Twitter user.

"few corrections: its Paddys Day not Patty. & it's a shamrock (3 leaf) not 4 unlike ur hats," wrote another.

"It's not 'St Patty's Day'  It's Paddy's Day or St Patrick's Day," wrote another witty Twitter user. "Never Patty's. Trust me I'm Irish. #NotFakeNews."

"Don't disrespect our culture with that tack!" wrote another. "That's a clover and not a shamrock and it's Paddy's Day or St Patrick's Day. Get it right."

One Twitter user pointed out the irony in the administration's decision to honor a day that celebrates immigrants.

"Wearing that hat on a day that celebrates immigrants is a disgrace and typical lack of caring from this party," wrote the Twitter user.

"Do not co-opt Irish culture for political gain!" wrote another.

The hat is currently being sold for $50. In the item's description, it states that the hat is "Proudly Made in USA."
