Government flubs State of the Union tickets with major typo

Members of Congress were sent tickets to the president's State of the ‘Uniom.’

Members of Congress shared images of the tickets on Monday, which invited them to the president’s annual “Address to Congress on the State on the ‘Uniom’” scheduled for Tuesday at 9 p.m.

The Office of the Sergeant at Arms and Doorkeeper acknowledged the misprint and said it would reissue the tickets, but that didn’t stop critics from blaming the president.

“So we're already off to a good start. If I'm not mistaken, the ‘Uniom’ was the side that won the Civil ‘Warm.’ Isn't that right?” he joked. “Is there nothing they can't screw up?

“There's a good chance Trump thinks the State of the Union means he gets to present the award for his favorite state tomorrow,” Kimmel added.

“The administration wants to showcase what the country is like now that Republicans are in charge of everything,” Colbert said. “And they may have done just that, because they sent out these real tickets to see 'The State of the Uniom.' Yes. Uniom!

“Now they're reprinting tickets, and they're going to recall the old ones, which could be tough -- I've seen members of the Trump administration testify, and they can't recall anything,” he added.
