There’s a typo on the State of the Union tickets and everyone is making the same joke

A number of tickets issued to guests attending president Donald Trump's first State of the Union featured an unfortunate typo.

Instead of welcoming guests to the 'State of the Union' address - the tickets issued by the Office of the Sergeant at Arms and Doorkeeper instead admits bearers to the 'State of the Uniom' address.

It's unclear how many 'Uniom' tickets were issued, but all have been reprinted and redistributed, a Sergeant at Arms office spokesperson told Agence France-Presse.

After hearing about the situation, some Democrats took to Twitter to mock:

This Democrat Representative for Arizona used 'Uniom' to criticise Republican Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, whose office had its own spelling problems last February. It misspelled Du Bois' name and then misspelled the follow-up apology. Then on Snapchat two months later, the White House's official account referred to Ms DeVos as the "Secretary of Educatuon".

The little blue tickets to the State of the Union event are provided to spouses and guests of members of Congress - they grant the bearer access to seats in the gallery.

The president obviously has no involvement in the printing of the tickets, but some thought it would be a good idea to remind us of the 'covfefe' chaos from 2017:

For anyone out there with eagle eyes, the tickets also referred to the 'Visitor's Gallery' when it is actually the Visitors' Gallery.

Tuesday's State of the Union address will be the 115th and is scheduled to take place at 9 pm EST. It's an annual message presented by the president and is expected to cover a number of matters including the budget, the state of the economy, legislative agendas and national priorities.
