White House press secretary Sean Spicer still doesn’t quite seem to have a handle on Twitter as he made another embarrassing faux pas Thursday morning. In naming the new secretary of Housing and Urban Development, Spicer mistakenly tweeted that President Donald Trump was confirmed, rather than Ben Carson.

At 10:58 a.m., Spicer tweeted, according to the New York Post, “The Senate has confirmed that @realDonald Trump as the next Secretary of” Realizing the mistake, Spicer (or one of his team members) quickly deleted the tweet and sent an updated one confirming that Carson was, in fact, confirmed. The realization did not come quick enough, however, as screenshots were circulated across social media.


This is far from the first time Spicer has made a mistake on his account. In January, he tweeted and deleted what many believed to be passwords and days later, he retweeted a satirical Onion video mocking his role in the Trump administration.

He was mocked once again for his latest social media error. Take a look at how people responded below:
