Republican Brian Mast made an unusual mistake by confusing the Russian military ship Pyotr Velikiy with a US fleet unit. His post was made fun of some users on Twitter.
On the anniversary of the Navy of the United States, the Republican politician decided to send his greetings through a posting on Twitter. However, he made an unexpected mistake that caused the mockery of many users.
Along with his “Happy Birthday” message, Brian Mast attached the image of a battle cruiser. The drawback was that the ship in the photo belonged to the Russian fleet and not to that of their country.
Mast, who is a veteran of the US army, failed to differentiate the Pyotr Velikiy ship from one of the United States Navy. He learned about the mistake after a political journalist made him see it.
Next, other Internet users and journalists commented on their post referring to their mistake. After this, the politician decided to delete it and publish a new greeting.
“Happy birthday to the US Navy! To the men and women who serve to keep our waters safe, we thank you, ”he said.
However, many had already taken a screenshot. Chris Cabas, a naval war journalist, was one of them. On his Twitter profile he posted Mast’s embarrassing moment .
“It ‘s great to see so many birthday wishes to us #Navy #Navy on Twitter today. I’ve seen pictures of Dutch, Australian, French and more ships, but this is the best,” he wrote.
But he is currently serving his second term in the Florida House of Representatives . During his service for the army in Afghanistan, he lost both legs and one finger.
