Donald Trump’s New Inauguration Poster Has This Common (and Embarrassing) Typo
The White House has been at the center of non-stop controversies since Donald Trump was inaugurated in January. From the travel ban to unexpected retail drama and the resignation of National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, the news cycle is non-stop.
With all that’s happened (and all of the action being taken against President Trump’s administration), you might be surprised to learn that even a teeny typo can make its way into a trending item. (Then again, if you find that surprising, it’s possible you’ve never been on Twitter.) The Library of Congress recently released a commemorative 8 x 10-inch photo for sale, containing a quote from President Trump that said, “No dream is too big, no challenge is to great. Nothing we want for the future is beyond our reach.” The problem? There was a glaring typo in it. Did you spot it?

Of course, the “to great” should have read “too great.” The listing claims that this quote “captures the essence of Donald Trump’s campaign for the presidency of the United States,” which, given the carelessness of the error, has Twitter face-palming all over the place.

This makes us wonder about the editorial standards of the administration, which is kind of ironic, especially considering how frequently President Trump likes to criticize the media. Anyway, the print has since been removed and corrected, but you can still see the original via archive on the Wayback Machine.
Do you think this typo is a big deal? Let us know over @BritandCo.

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
