WASHINGTON — Oops.

Tickets to President Donald Trump's first State of the Union address originally contained a spelling error, NBC News confirmed Monday. A picture of the tickets shows that the tickets say State of the "Uniom" — not "Union."

Two sources tell NBC News the tickets are being re-printed to correct the misspelling.

A source with the Sergeant at Arms' office, which is responsible for printing the tickets, told NBC News: "There was a misprint on the ticket. A correction has been made and our office is redistributing the tickets."

Some lawmakers, like Florida Senator Marco Rubio, chose to just go with the mistake.


Of course, the Sergeant at Arms' office isn't the only one afflicted by spelling screwups these days. The White House, for its part, has frequently included typos in press releases and on its daily schedule, while the president himself has skipped spellcheck on several of his tweets over the past year.
