Senate Majority leader Chuck Schumer was mocked online after saying the word “insurrection” very wrong and saying what some believed was the word “erection” in it’s place.
Schumer noticed his mistake and corrected himself, but that did not stop social media from making jokes.
I regret to inform you that Chuck Schumer just said ‘erection’ instead of ‘insurrection’ on the Senate floor pic.twitter.com/U5xRRnkaQg

So, on the Senate floor, Chuck Schumer just said that senators must decide if "Donald John Trump incited the erection, uh, insurrection…"
Well, it WAS an uprising!

“Donald John Trump incited the ERECTION, insurrection against the United States.” 🤣🤣
Then he rejected McConnell’s proposal, calling it unacceptable. pic.twitter.com/wdYOV8pcZY
