Last night, shortly after the Kansas City Chiefs won the Super Bowl, the president tweeted out a victory speech that ended up with him being mocked mercilessly, and for good reason. See, Trump kind of flubbed and said that the Chiefs represented the “great state of Kansas.”
There’s just one problem..
The Chiefs reside in Kansas City, Missouri. Check out the tweet before it was deleted.
Now, the president is being mocked over his apparent lack of basic American geography. This is where pretending get the president in trouble. Anyone who gives a crap about football, namely the NFL, know damn well where the Chiefs hail from.
Former Senator Claire McCaskill took to Twitter to express her deep concern with the president’s ignorance. This is what she had to say:
It’s Missouri you stone cold idiot. pic.twitter.com/O1cAAOFsJ6

McCaskill wasn’t the only one to troll Trump. Check out some other tweets floating around out there:
LOL Senate Republicans passing a “Sense of the Senate Resolution” that the Chiefs belong to Kansas too and then pundits being all “but the city does straddle two states.” And then the NYT editorials being all “Democrats Lack Civility in Kansas Misunderstanding.”

I used to think the Kansas City Chiefs played in Kansas. But I was like 12 years old and not the president of the United States.

Trump is going to release a map tomorrow with Kansas City in Kansas isn’t he?

Tomorrow: Trump waves around a map in Oval Office showing that Kansas City is, in fact, in Kansas. pic.twitter.com/e5jb6R7RHf

Even the cops got in on it:
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.

At least one Republican was dumb enough to make excuses for Trump’s idiocy, but he ended up sounded equally dumb when he said:
Dear East coast establishment: Kansas City, Kansas is in Kansas.

But the Kansas City Chiefs….ARE NOT.
