Amid the flood of news Wednesday about President Donald Trump's scandal asking Ukraine to help in his election and allegedly withholding aid, one Texas congressman made a hilarious slip of the tongue.


Best slip of the tongue today," Dallas Morning News Washington Bureau Chief Todd Gillman tweeted. "[Rep. Will Hurd (R-TX)] says he wants to know if the US has, in fact, sold the "javelinas" to Ukraine. The FGM-148 Javelin is an anti-tank missile. The javelina is a nasty wild pig from Hurd's native West Texas."

Hurd is one of the Republicans who announced his retirement this year. He will vacate his seat when a new member is elected and sworn in Jan. 2021.
