Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is getting berated and teased on Twitter for an embarrassing split-second mistake that bizarrely roped in your Philadelphia Phillies. 

On Tuesday, Trump (or whoever's running his Twitter these days) started typing out a message of condolence to the late conservative advocate Phyllis Schlafly, who died Monday at the age of 92. Without a quick proofread, the tweet was up and away.

The tweet was quickly deleted, but not before word got out that the Phils were in Trump's thoughts. 

Amazingly, this may be the most innocuous thing Trump has done in the past year. He dissed Philly's political leaders last week after a private visit with African-American voters and will be returning again on Wednesday for another private speech at The Union League of Philadelphia to discuss national security.
