This going to be hard to live down.

Majority Leader Chuck Schumer got a rise out of lawmakers on the Senate floor Friday when he fumbled his words and said that they will have to decide if former President Trump incited the “erection” against the US.

“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 against the United States,” Schumer said.

Noticing his boneheaded slip-up, he corrected himself and said “insurrection,” but that didn’t stop online wags from roasting him.

“Well, sometimes insurrection is a HARD word to pronounce,” one Twitter user wrote.

“I regret the image this conjured in my mind. Yuck,” another wrote.

“Damn. That will be hard to live down,” yet another said.

And one added: “Hardest stance Schumer ever took.”

Schumer said the House’s article of impeachment will be delivered to the Senate on Monday, triggering the start of the Senate’s impeachment trial of the former president.
