Perhaps he thinks it’s all about him?

In that case, every day is President’s Day to Trump.

Hey Ivanka - you’re next in line to inherit should any accident happen.

Just saying.

wow, really, how dare you attack the leader of this great nation for something so petty. it really speaks to where the discourse has sunken to in this day and age. it is very, very common for people to make mistakes when it comes to apostrophes, even for highly intelligent geniuses… so why would any reasonable person expect better from this utterly psychotic, tiny-handed, cheeto-faced, urine-soaked blithering idiot and human shit stain?

If this were aimed at another poster here, you might have a point (and I’d likely agree that it’s petty)… in this case… he’s a major danger to the entire world. Who cares?

He is an idiot, but I expect 90% of my fellow Americans to make the same mistake.

Google Fight isn’t working for me right now, but a search shows more sites prefer “President’s Day” – like Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, both of which Google will suggest as corrections to “Fathers Day” or “Mothers Day”. It’s interesting that only Encyclopedia Britannica uses the grammatically correct “Presidents’ Day”. So, yeah, it’s roughly a coin flip.

Correcting people’s shitty internet grammar instead of the content of their messages – which should be pretty damn easy for Trump – should have gone out with the 90s.

As much as I enjoy picking on our impeached president, it’s a complicated situation. According to Wikipedia, Presidents’ Day is the most common name for the state holiday, but President’s Day is a close second (using “President” at least). Some states call it Presidents Day (no apostrophe) and many others have names involving Washington, Lincoln, or others.

Funnily enough, the official name for the federal holiday is “Washington’s Birthday,” and the Office of Personnel Management is persnickety about it:

This holiday is designated as “Washington’s Birthday” in section 6103(a) of title 5 of the United States Code, which is the law that specifies holidays for Federal employees. Though other institutions such as state and local governments and private businesses may use other names, it is our policy to always refer to holidays by the names designated in the law.

Maybe. But godDAMN if it’s/its confusion doesn’t make me INSANE when I see an otherwise cogent, articulate writer suffer from it.

Looks like we need an act to revise the day to Unimpeached Presidents’ Day
