Social media users had a field day after Tennesee Republican Representative Andy Ogles accidentally gave former President Donald Trump a fitting new nickname during a speech on the House floor.
Although Ogles quickly corrected himself during remarks in which he referred to a certain "President Chump," the damage was already done.
You can hear what he said in the video below.
The mockery was swift.
Freudian slip or not, Trump has thrown his support behind Ogles for re-election in 2024.
This endorsement comes following a dinner with several members of Tennessee's congressional delegation, which Ogles did not attend when Trump visited Nashville for a fundraising event last month. Following that dinner, several Tennesee Republicans—including Senators Marsha Blackburn and Bill Hagerty—announced they'd endorsed the former President.
Ogles was sworn in at the beginning of this year after he successfully flipped a seat that had been held by a Democrat since 2002 and that Democrats had claimed since the Civil War.
The freshman lawmaker has come under fire since NewsChannel 5 uncovered inaccuracies in his resume, reporting that Ogles has claimed "he's not only a businessman, he's also an economist, a nationally recognized expert in tax policy and health care, a trained police officer, [and] even an expert in international sex crimes."
The news outlet noted Ogles' "personal life story is filled with exaggerations" and fabrications about his education and work history, actions that have drawn comparisons to fellow New York Republican George Santos, whose lies and fabrications were last year uncovered by the New York Times.
Despite these challenges, Trump praised Ogles as a "fantastic" representative in a post on his social media platform Truth Social, saying he "is working hard to Grow the Economy, Stop Inflation, Secure our Southern Border, Uphold the Rule of Law, and Defend our Second Amendment."
