On Tuesday, President Donald Trump nominated judge Neil Gorsuch for the Supreme Court. Gorsuch is an originalist judge in the mold of Antonin Scalia, the justice he would be replacing. But if you type his name, autocorrect might change it to “Grouch.”

This “Grouch” spelling is the gift that keeps on giving, and here are examples from across Twitter of people spelling the name wrong, without realizing it!

First, here’s New York Times Washington Bureau reporter Michael Tackett.

I do love it when people joke about autocorrect changing “Gorsuch” to “Grouch.”

Here’s another one.
