Democrat Raul Grijalva tweeted a photo a ticket to Donald Trump's State of the Union address showing he was invited to the "State of the Uniom". The persons responsible for printing the ticket are not the White House. In fact, the printing is overseen by the Sergeant at Arms of the US House of Representatives who said, "There was a misprint on the ticket."
"It was corrected immediately, and our office is redistributing the tickets," a spokesman for the Sergeant at Arms said. By that time a number of people seized the opportunity to mock Trump for the misprint.

Politicians including Republican Senator Marco Rubio took to social media to mock the mistake on the tickets for the presidential address, you may also remember the time people mocked Trump for a tweet containing the world "covfefe." That tweet has become legendary and once again people show how willing they are to pick apart the president for every single mistake, even when not his own.
Rubio tweeted, "Looking forward to tomorrow’s State of the Uniom" while Grijalva tweeted, "Just received my ticket for the State of the Union. Looks like @BetsyDeVosED was in charge of spell checking … #SOTUniom."
Meanwhile, the FBI has committed what amounts to treason by trying to hide incriminating texts and is currently in charge of investigating themselves, we all know how that's going to turn out. While Trump is busy bringing jobs to America and securing the borders, his opponents are left with nothing to use against him.
Instead, they turn to the single misprinted letter to point to as evidence of what a fool he is. The only people who look foolish are the ones who are still mocking him, even a year-long special council and 17 taxpayer-funded lawyers have found no wrongdoing by the president.
The State of the Union is a big speech for any president, every word is carefully chosen and the number of Americans that watch make it one of the most important speeches a president can make. He is expected to showcase accomplishments of his first year in office.
"It’s one of the few events presidents conduct in which 30 to 40 million or more Americans are watching," Fleischer said. "There is hardly another moment of presidential exposure as big as this one, and it’s one when the president and his staff have all the control. They are not reacting to events. They are controlling them, and they need to deliver."
