President Donald Trump's supporters (or bots made to look like supporters) on Twitter attempted to show solidarity with their leader ahead of a House floor vote that's expected to result in his impeachment.
Signalling confidence in Trump's reelection, they formed a hashtag meant to say #Trump2020Landslide, but a typo resulted in widespread ridicule.
Instead of "landslide" the hashtag read:
It soon began trending on Twitter, most likely because of this tweet from White House social media director Dan Scavino.

Trump supporters began using the hashtag without noticing the typo.

@SpeakerPelosi Thank you for your hard work helping with the #TRUMP2020Landside— 🌻CatNYC🌻 (@🌻CatNYC🌻)1576681488.0
But widely, people saw the typo as indicative of a flippant approach to facts from the President's supporters and Trump himself.
You know it's a Trump supporter because they can't spell correctly. It's not "landside". Is spellcheck so hard to use? #TRUMP2020Landside— Christopher Soran (@Christopher Soran)1576619108.0

Nothing says Trump supporter like incorrectly spelled hashtags. What up #TRUMP2020Landside— shannon (@shannon)1576625743.0
To be fair, the President himself often puts forth typos in his tweets.
While #Trump2020Landside is no longer trending, #ImpeachmentDay, #MerryImpeachmas, #TrumpImpeachment and #ThePresidentIsACrybaby are.
