How do you spell ‘asinine’? D-A-V-I-D S-H-U-S-T-E-R

David Shuster, the know-it-all liberal who used to host some show on MSNBC, tried to give Twitter user @brento76 a spelling lesson about the word “asinine.”

“It’s ‘assinine,’ with 2s’s… not one,” Shuster smugly (and incorrectly) tweeted.

Naturally, friends and foes alike were quick to point out his error:

Hoping to cover his tracks, Shuster deleted the tweet before we were able to capture it. Pretty sneaky!

Fortunately, we have @brentlo76’s screencap above, which is more than adequate. We’ll save it for posterity.

(Editor’s note: In the initial version of this post, we managed to misspell Shuster’s name. How “assinine” of us!)

    The best thing to do in this situation is to admit you messed up and make a joke about it, not delete the post. We all screw up, just own up

    • Jesse Malkin

      Yep. It happens to everyone.

    • Jim Cooper

      Lessons from Barry. He should just blame Bush. Barry made it thru one term that way.

    • cgraham77

      Or next time he could just not be so pedantic and condescending

    • RightThinking1

      Or…, blame the video

      You forget. Liberals never admit to making a mistake.

      Man, I wish I’d said that. Nice one.

  • my preciousss!!

    no harm done, shuster described himself …. perfectly.

  • Garth Haycock

    No Schuster, there is only one “s” in asinine. But there are two of them in dumbass. For example, David Schuster is an asinine dumbass.

  • radjahshelduck

    He’s just confused from all the times he’s been called an asshole, which does have two s’s.

    Since we’re picking letters and buying vowels tonight—LOL!!!! Classic. Thank you David and Brent, just the comic relief that I needed as we come down the home stretch of this election.

    You should’ve checked with Dan Quayle first, Mr. Potatoe Head.

    • Andy Shiflett

      Nope… Dan is on vacation in our beautiful 57th state at the moment…will join Joe in Iowa…er…Ohio…er…

      • MoxieLouise

    I have got to admit, this is one of the most entertaining sites ever, thanks to the libs. Keep it up libs, you make me laugh!

  • JD Olson

    Well, Shuster does put the “ass” in asinine. So there’s that.

  • tomtom1983

    Well if anyone new how to spell “ass-inine correctly, it would be a liberal. They have a vast unparalleled knowledge of being a huge asses.

    • tomtom1983

      Emm, I did a Shuster, apologies.

      • MoxieLouise

        Maybe there is a liberal spelling and a conservative spelling. I bet that’s it.

        • Andy Shiflett

          Just watch for the dangling participles and incorrect use of gerunds lest the libs point them out …you see they are much smarter than the rest of usss.

      • MoxieLouise

        Maybe there is a liberal spelling and a conservative spelling. I bet that’s it.

  • TocksNedlog

    So, by attempting to play spelling cop he proves his adversary’s point for him. Efficient.

  • twinx

    LOL, that was gorgeous. Dave-o, you put the ASS in asinine. You don’t even know how to spell your own last name: S-H-I-T-S-T-E-R. There you go, FIFY

    • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)
