During Tuesday’s daily White House press briefing, U.S. Press Secretary Sean Spicer misspoke the name of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, calling him “Joe Trudeau.” Spicer was looking down at what was presumably a list of talking points.

President Trump met with Trudeau for the first time earlier Monday to discuss trade and other cross-border efforts.

Spicer’s stumble occurred right before questions erupted regarding the resignation of Michael Flynn, Trump’s national security adviser, who confessed to withholding details of meetings with Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak from Vice President Mike Pence, “and others.”

People took to Twitter to entertain the flub.
