"Congressman Bill Pascrell is a member of the House Ways and Means Committe who's pushing as hard as anybody on this issue. Congressman, thanks for being with us tonight. Keep us apprised, sir."
"Thank you, sir," responded Pascrell reflexively, before correcting himself and shutting his eyes in apparent embarrassment. "Ma'am."
"It's alright, I answer to both," responded a laughing Rachel Maddow. "It's actually quite convenient in really unexpected places. You'd be surprised."
Her fans quickly jumped to their keyboards to praise Maddow's graceful response to the "misgendered flub."
