Presidential Spelling Fail: How Do You Spell R-E-S-P-E-C-T?
Maybe he should have asked to hear it used in a sentence?
President Barack Obama makes spelling error as he recounts famous song lyric, R-E-S-P-E-C-T., praising Aretha Franklin.
Obama misspelled “respect” while lauding the “Queen of Soul” before a White House concert featuring several musical legends.
“When Aretha first told us what R-S-P-E-C-T meant to her,” Obama said, before the audience in the East Room erupted into laughter.
