The White House misspelled Santa Claus twice, according to a recent transcript of President Barack Obama's remarks at the national Christmas tree lighting ceremony. 

From the official transcript:

THE PRESIDENT:  No, no, no -- (laughter) -- I just wasn’t sure.  I know this program is taped so we can always edit this out.  (Laughter.)  Was there something else that we were supposed to be singing?  Santa Clause Is Coming To Town -- that's what I thought.  Let’s hit it!

(Everyone sings “Santa Clause Is Coming To Town.)


In fact, it should read, "Santa Claus."
