Trump Fumbles After Kansas City Chiefs Win Super Bowl, Names The Wrong State

Published: (Updated: ) in Australian News by .

President Donald Trump congratulated the Kansas City Chiefs on defeating the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LIV on Sunday night, telling the team they represented “the Great State of Kansas … so very well.” 

Just one problem: The Chiefs aren’t based in Kansas but rather in Missouri. 

Trump deleted the tweet, but it was preserved in a screenshot: 

Trump soon deleted the tweet and issued a new one with the correct state

Kansas City, Kansas, and Kansas City, Missouri, share a border, and the Chiefs have a fanbase in both states. But the Missouri city is significantly larger, and the team has played there since moving from Texas in 1963.

The geographical blunder comes a little more than a week after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo cursed out National Public Radio journalist Mary Louise Kelly for asking him about Ukraine ― and then challenged her to find it on a map. 

“He called out for his aides to bring him a map of the world with no writing, no countries marked,” Kelly told The New York Times. “I pointed to Ukraine. He put the map away. He said, ‘People will hear about this.’”

Pompeo later implied, implausibly, that she had pointed to Bangladesh

Twitter users, including former Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill, called out Trump for not knowing the basic geography of the country he leads:

I hope the Trump voters in both Kansas and Missouri have a little clearer picture now of how much Trump doesn’t give a shit about them.
If Barack Obama had made that mistake, they’d have impeached him out of sheer hurt feelings.

Trump cares so much about Kansas and Missouri that he can’t bother to figure out where Kansas City is.

Trump is totally going to eminent domain the team and compel Kansas to annex their stadium before he’ll actually admit fault.

Can’t believe the Deep State put Kansas City in MISSOURI just to embarrass Trump.

Do you think that the people of Kansas will be upset that you don’t know where they are? Or, for that matter where Missouri is? I mean, it’s not like it’s Ukraine or Bangalore.
