With election results looming, thousands of Americans logged on to Twitter over the course of Tuesday night to collectively take a minute. But few people's strategies to let off some steam proved quite as effective — or quite as hilarious — as New York Senator Chuck Schumer's tweeted case of mistaken identity.
Schumer's tweet includes a photo of himself beside the snack table at what looks like a Hillary Clinton campaign event. Kate McKinnon, the Saturday Night Live actress who portrayed Clinton in a series of sketches during the campaign, stands alongside him.
The senator's caption? "I got to congratulate Hillary Clinton — oops, wrong Hillary!"
Although it would be chuckle-worthy — and almost understandable! — if in all of the excitement, Schumer really did call McKinnon "Madame President," it seems a little too good to be true. Regardless, thank you, Senator, for giving us something to smile about while retweeting.
