President Trump tweeted a message congratulating the Kansas City Chiefs for representing the “Great State of Kansas” after the team’s victory at the Super Bowl in Miami tonight.
You just can’t make this stuff up.
“Congratulations to the Kansas City Chiefs on a great game, and a fantastic comeback, under immense pressure,” Trump wrote in the since-deleted tweet. “You represented the Great State of Kansas and, in fact, the entire USA, so very well. Our Country is PROUD OF YOU!”
When social media pointed out the error, Trump deleted the tweet.
Shortly after, Trump shared a similar message praising the team and “the Great State of Missouri” after it secured a 31-20 victory against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.
The Kansas City Chiefs are based in Kansas City, Mo.
The fact Trump seemingly cannot distinguish between Missouri and Kansas delighted many on social media:.
It’s Missouri you stone cold idiot. pic.twitter.com/O1cAAOFsJ6

Now that everyone is paying attention to Kansas City, it seems people are confused: We’re from MISSOURI. Check our profile pic – It’s our Missouri-shaped patch.

Quick, someone knock the Sharpie out of Trump’s hands before he redraws the map of Kansas.

Trump congratulated the Chiefs of ‘the Great State of Kansas.’ The team resides in Missouri. https://t.co/61Gz7X7jO2

I urge the people of Kansas and Missouri to think about this in November. He doesn’t know who you are. He doesn’t know where you live. He doesn’t know anything about you. pic.twitter.com/cDE7woZXxH

Dear Mr. President of United States of American, Kansas City isn’t in Kansas it’s in Missouri.

The Kansas thing is obviously hilarious but even funnier than that is Trump writing about football the same way I used to write book reports when I didn’t read the book. https://t.co/xYmEgfR6IT

The President of the United States doesn’t know what state Kansas City is in.
He had 2 weeks to prepare.
