Spelling error on tickets to Trump’s State of the Union

The tickets for President Donald Trump’s first State of the Union address on Tuesday had to be reprinted after a typo.

Photos of the spelling error, which said ‘State of the Uniom’ instead of ‘State of the Union’, were shared on Twitter.

The tickets, which are issued by the Office of the Sergeant at Arms and Doorkeeper, are provided for spouses and guests of members of Congress and give access to seats in the gallery.

While it is unclear how many of the tickets printed had typos, all affected tickets have been reprinted and are in the process of being redistributed, a source in the Sergeant at Arms office told CNN.

A spokesman for the House Sergeant in Arms office told The Hill that the typo was not impacting the distribution of the tickets.  

Several in Congress took the opportunity to make fun of the comical error.

Rep Raul Grijalva, a Democrat from Arizona, tweeted a picture of the ticket with an insult aimed at Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos.

 ‘Just received my ticket for the State of the Union. Looks like @BetsyDeVosEd was in charge of spell checking… #SOTUniom,’ he tweeted.

And he was not the only congressman to take aim.
