Tickets to Trump's first State of the Union address contain typo

Florida Senator Marco Rubio posted a photo of his ticket, saying: "Looking forward to tomorrow's State of the Uniom".

And while certainly amusing, it sort of sucks to be working in the Office of the Sergeant at Arms and Doorkeeper, as they are the ones who print and provide the tickets for spouses and guests of members of Congress.

The State of the Union will take place on Tuesday, Jan. 30 at 9 p.m.


Whoever printed out the tickets for Donald Trump's first State of the Union speech must be feeling very "covfefe" right now. A second source familiar with the situation confirmed the tickets were being reprinted and being redistributed.

According to a Sergeant at Arms spokesperson, this is likely the first time State of the Union tickets have had to be reissued.

It is not clear how numerous tickets had the typo.


Meanwhile, Rep. Raúl Grijalva (D-Ariz.) spotted an opportunity to score some easy points and joked that it looked like Education Secretary Betsy DeVos might have been the one "spell checking". An official said a correction was immediately made and all but about a dozen tickets have been exchanged.

The President is scheduled to deliver the address to Congress Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET.
