Chuck Schumer is earning some mockery online after he accidentally said that the U.S. Senate will decide whether former President Donald Trump incited an "erection" against the United States.
As the New York Post reported, the new Senate majority leader spoke on Friday about the upcoming impeachment process, where the out-of-office Trump could face the potential of being barred from running for office again.
"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 against the United States," Schumer said, before quickly correcting himself and saying "insurrection."
As the report noted, the quick slip of the tongue wasn't lost on the internet. Many took to Twitter to mock Schumer's fumbling of words and the accidentally inappropriate phrase.
"Okay, this is funny... Chuck Schumer's face when he realized he just said 'erection,'" tweeted conservative pundit Dinesh D'Souza.
Even Donald Trump Jr. joined in, tweeting a video of the flub and some mocking words for Schumer.
