In what is not the first and definitely won't be the last, US President Donald Trump drew laughter and scorn his way on Sunday after he placed the Kansas City Chiefs in the wrong state following their Super Bowl victory in a tweet.
He took to Twitter to congratulate the Chiefs on a great game and on making Kansas State proud, but the team actually belongs to neighbouring Missouri.
“Congratulations to the Kansas City Chiefs on a great game, and a fantastic comeback, under immense pressure,” he tweeted.
“You represented the Great State of Kansas and, in fact, the entire USA, so very well. Our Country is PROUD OF YOU!”.
Naturally, on realising his blunder, President Trump deleted his tweet and replaced it with the one having the correct state.
However, his confusion was not missed by Netizens, who were quick to ridicule him and of course-- make fun of him!
Claire McCaskill, a former US senator from the state replied, “It’s Missouri you stone cold idiot.”
“Can’t believe the Deep State put Kansas City in MISSOURI just to embarrass Trump,” a Twitterati said.
Lauren Arthur, a current Missouri state senator, tweeted: “Wrong state. Best stay out of things you don’t understand, like the Heart of America.”
People were soon reminded of another blunder by the US President when during Hurricane Dorian in September last year HE said that the storm would “most likely” sweep Alabama. To support his claim also produced a doctored weather map. The storm did not reach Alabama, and now this is called “Sharpiegate”.
“Someone quickly take the Sharpie... out of Trump’s hands before he redraws the map of Kansas,” tweeted writer and television producer Bryan Behar.
Greg Krieg, a CNN politics reporter, tweeted: “Tomorrow: Trump waves around a map in Oval Office showing that Kansas City is, in fact, in Kansas.”
All in all, Trump got brutally trolled yet another time for a mistake he committed out of ignorance. So, not a shocker!
