How a Comma Killed Tiffany Trump

In a recent tweet, our new president wrote:



Sadly, Trump knows nothing about grammar. If he did, he’d have written:

“My daughter Tiffany” (without the comma).

Why?

Because

“My daughter Tiffany” means he has multiple daughters, whereas “My daughter, Tiffany” means he has only one.

Commas can kill.

Here’s another example:

“If you’re like to meet my friend, Susan, please join us for dinner.”

means I have only one friend.

Whereas:

“If you’d like to meet my friend Susan, please join for us dinner.”

means Susan is one of my friends.
