When introducing Donald Trump before tonight’s State of the Union Address, Paul Ryan suffered a little slip of the tongue:
did Paul Ryan almost say “preventing” the president of the United States?

Paul Ryan nearly said he had the distinct honor of "preventing" Donald Trump.

So Paul Ryan totally almost said he had the honor of preventing the president, didn't he?

Did Paul Ryan just start to say “preventing“ instead of “presenting“ the president? Freudian slip? https://t.co/M4pDJU0pKj

Paul Ryan just said that he has "the high privilege and distinct honor of preventing . . . the President of the United States."
A Freudian slip, if there ever was one.#SOTU

This could’ve been really awkward.
Oh Paul, if only you could have "prevented" this…. #SOTU
