HILARIOUS: Twitter Users Scorch Congressman Over ‘Amen and A-Woman’ Stunt

It’s just too good!

During these trying political times that we live in, it can be a truly cathartic pleasure to see some of us having a little fun with one another.

This week, one of the few bright spots in Washington DC came as one Congressman attempted to put a silly, albeit nonsensical, spin on the end of a prayer.

Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.) finished the first daily congressional prayer of the new session with the words “amen and awoman” on Sunday.

“And dare I ask, oh Lord, peace even in this chamber now and evermore,” Cleaver said while serving as guest House chaplain. “We ask it in the name of the monotheistic god, Brahma, and god known by many names by many different faiths. Amen and awoman.”

Of course, “amen” is not a word that denotes gender at all.  Rather, it is a Latin word meaning “so be it”, which makes perfect sense at the end of a prayer.

Twitter users couldn’t help themselves, and were soon annihilating Cleaver over the well-intended by hilarious faux pas.

Oh, and that was far from the end of it.

Neither can we, Sarah; our sides hurt too much from laughing.
