Democratic National Committee Makes Glaring Historical Error While Invoking Reagan

The Democratic National Committee apparently thinks former President Ronald Reagan once served in Congress.

In a tweet sent out by the group's official Twitter account Friday evening, the committee said, "'It's time to raise a minimum wage that's worth less than it was when Ronald Reagan was in Congress.'"

Only problem? Reagan never served in Congress.

Users on Twitter were quick to hit back and respond to the DNC.

According to Twitchy, based on the surrounding tweets, it may be possible "that this gaffe was part of President Obama's speech to the DNC."
