SOTU Ticket Typo Takes Off on Internet

SOTU Ticket Typo Takes Off on Internet

A SOTU ticket typo spelling "union" as "uniom" made it to social media and became what Time magazine called a "viral punchline." The mistake came as President Donald Trump prepared to give his first State of the Union speech on Tuesday.

Politico said it’s the House Sergeant at Arms and not Trump's administration that’s responsible for printing State of the Union tickets, per a source who confirmed that the tickets appearing on social media were authentic.

According to The Hill, a spokesman for the House Sergeant at Arms said the misprint was corrected and that the tickets were being recalled and reprinted. The typo did not affect the distribution of the tickets, the spokesman said.

By that time, though, the hashtag #StateoftheUniom had become a thing on Twitter.
