Senator Chuck Schumer Makes Unfortunate Mistake During Speech To Senate Floor

Senator Chuck Schumer Makes Unfortunate Mistake During Speech To Senate Floor

If you think you're having a bad day, then please spare a thought for Senator Chuck Schumer, who managed to make this pretty embarrassing mistake while addressing the Senate.

Majority leader Senator Schumer was speaking at the senate floor as a trial date was set for Donald Trump to face charges of inciting the deadly US Capitol riots earlier this month.

Speaking to the floor, Schumer said: "Make no mistake, there will be a trial and when that trial ends senators will have to decide if they believe Donald John Trump incited the erection... insurrection against the United States."

Yikes.

As you can probably imagine, social media users absolutely loved the slip up with one person joking on Twitter: "Trump definitely never incited any erections."

Another wrote: '"Donald John Trump incited the ERECTION, insurrection against the United States.' @SenSchumer won Twitter today."

While a third posted: "That pained look on his face at the end really sold this clip. '...Senators will have to decide if Donald John Trump incited the erection... insurrection against the United States'."

On 6 January, Trump told his supporters: "We're going to walk down to the Capitol, and we're going to cheer on our brave senators and congressmen and women, and we're probably not going to be cheering so much for some of them, because you'll never take back our country with weakness.

"You have to show strength, and you have to be strong."

Later that day, rioters stormed the Capitol - many have since been arrested.

In response to the criticism about his speech, Trump said: "If you read my speech - and many people have done it and I've seen it both in the papers and in the media, on television, it is been analysed - and people thought that what I said was totally appropriate.

'They've analysed my speech and my words and my final paragraph, my final sentence and everybody to a tee thought it was totally appropriate.

"And if you look at what other people have said, politicians at a high level, about the riots during the summer, the horrible riots in Portland and Seattle and various other places, that was a real problem - what they said."
