If Trump’s farce of a presidential run is making you sick to your stomach, well, they say laughter is the best medicine — so perhaps this new study will give you a chuckle or two.
Grammarly, the grammar checking app, decided to get into the spirit of the 2016 campaign season by conducting a study of GOP supporters on social media. The Grammarly researchers visited each candidate’s Facebook page and collected the comments in an effort to conclude which candidate’s supporters handled themselves the best when communicating their ideas in writing. They looked at comments from April, 2015 thru August, 2015 and only chose positive or neutral comments. They only counted obvious mistakes such as misspellings, wrong and missing punctuation, misused or missing words. They ignored stylistic variations such as the use of common slang words.

According to the research, people who are not in favor of Donald Trump actually “trump” his supporters when it comes to using correct English. A snapshopt of the findings:
Since the study didn’t provide any examples of the “award winning” comments, I did some investigating myself by visiting Trump’s Facebook page. Here are a few comments I found:
“Donald Trump thought about the families and obuma thought about getting your guns.”
“trump four prsedent#President Donald J. Trump 2016”
“Good work Mr. Trump keep going , we are not let you down. #MakeAmericaGreatAgain.”
