If there’s one thing that can be counted upon this election season, it’s that Donald Trump will say something disgusting interesting. Whether it’s talking about his then 1-year-old daughter’s breasts or saying women who get abortions should be punished, these highly-publicized instances of word vomit were actually intentional.

Now, the divisive Republican is gaining attention for something he said by accident. During a rally in Buffalo, New York on Monday, he took a break from making misogynistic statements to talk about the brave men and woman who jumped into action at Ground Zero just after the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. However, he made a tiny error that—according to KABC—caused some people in the audience to gasp.

"I was down there, and I watch our police and our firemen down on 7-Eleven, down at the World Trade Center, right after it came down and I saw the greatest people I have ever seen in action," he said. "I saw the bravest people I have ever seen including the construction workers, including every person down there, that's what New York values about."


Donald Trump mistakenly refers to 9-11 as "7-Eleven"


The unfortunate slip up will do little to hinder his campaign at this point. This is the same guy who refused to denounce the Ku Klux Klan and is still going strong. Trump lives on to say more intentionally offensive things in the future.
