Chuck Schumer’s recent comments on the Senate floor have people talking for all the wrong reasons!
On Friday, the Senate Majority Leader pushed for an impeachment trial against former President Donald Trump over the January 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol.
Unfortunately, the New York senator tripped over his words during a speech.
“Make no mistake, there will be a trial and when that trial ends, senators will have to decide if they believe Donald John Trump incited the erection, insurrection, against the United States,” Schumer said.
After the clip went viral, our very own Loni Love commented on the gaffe.
Other Twitter users chimed in, saying:
Well, sometimes insurrection is a HARD word to pronounce.— MW@ Gen'l Wm. Rosecrans (@Hawki70Mw) January 22, 2021
I regret the image this conjured in my mind. Yuck.— Ron Johnson's Soul (@RonJohnsonsSoul) January 22, 2021

Hardest stance Schumer ever took— Chris Falcinelli (@ChrisFalcinelli) January 22, 2021
Schumer says the House’s article of impeachment will be delivered to the Senate on Monday, prompting the start of a trial.
