White House Misspells Ronald 'Regan'

The White House twice misspelled the name of President Ronald Reagan in an email this evening to reporters. The email was of the president's schedule for tomorrow.

The email, coming from the office of the press secretary, said, "Later in the evening, the President will deliver remarks at the League of Conservation Voters Capital Dinner at the Ronald Regan Building and International Trade Center. This event is open to pre-credentialed media."

Later the email repeated the error:

7:10PM           THE PRESIDENT delivers remarks at the League of Conservation Voters Capitol Dinner

Ronald Regan Building and International Trade Center

Open to pre-credentialed media (Final Gather 6:25PM—North Doors of the Palm Room)   

The correct spelling is Ronald Reagan, not "Regan." And the building where the president will speak tomorrow night is the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center.

The new White House press secretary is Josh Earnest. Today's his second day on the job. 

Here's the president's complete schedule for tomorrow:
