U.S. President Donald Trump drew scorn and laughter on social media Sunday after placing the Kansas City Chiefs in the wrong state following their Super Bowl victory.

Trump said the Chiefs had made Kansas State proud, but the team actually hails from neighboring 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!".

Thanks Donnie - for letting everyone, but especially those in KC, know that you're nothing but a complete imbecile...

I can just imagine the State of the Union; "My fellow Russians, er...I mean Americans"....

Donny might not be good at running his businesses, running his government , but he sure is good at making people laugh!!

6 ( +14 / -8 )

Trump has lent "Missouri Compromise" a new meaning (not that he has any idea what the original was).

Surprised Donny didn't call up the Queen to congratulate her for the New England Patriots win last year.

He should tweet his father was born in Kansas to try to get back in the good books.

What a balloon head.

Kansas City is in fact in Kansas and also Missouri. Just that the football team is based in the Missouri part of Kansas City.

well at least liberals “won“ something this week. Enjoy your “win”.

that Kansas City is, in fact, in Kansas."

-10 ( +8 / -18 )

They gave this city the name Kansas City just to screw with people. I guarantee there are a lot of people who thought Kansas City is in Kansas State ( it ain't far ), including anti-Trumpers.

At least Trump has always known how many states there are. Obama thought there were 57. Tee hee!

-11 ( +6 / -17 )

I’ve seen this type of tweet too. Liberals didn’t lose their mind over it. Just so petty about everything.

GO TEAM! Congratulations to the New York Giants on their Super Bowl win! #newyork #giants #superbowl

At least Trump has always known how many states there are.

No proof of that.

Just so petty about everything.

Don't worry Donny will use his Sharpie to correct this geographical anomaly !!

Comedy gold. An alleged sexual abuser, a criminal fraudster and too thick to even bother checking where the Kansas City Chiefs are based. How could anyone ever vote for this buffoon?

Another SharpieGate. Give the man a pen!

Proof. Last week at the historic trade deal signing.

“This is a colossal victory for our farmers, ranchers, energy workers, factory workers, and American workers in all 50 states“

No proof of that.

What a great world we live in. that this can be a main concern of liberals who don’t even live in the USA, likely didn’t see the game and think football means soccer.

enjoy your petty “win”. Now move on to celebrate whoever doesn’t go to the White House visit, thats your next “win” right?

What are you talking about?

At least Trump has always known how many states there are. Obama thought there were 57. Tee hee!

If Obama had congratulated the state of Kansas, you wouldn't be bleating about how a city founded in 1850 were doing it for pranks, you'd be shrieking about how it's proof he hates America.

An alleged sexual abuser

So was Kavanaugh. There's zero evidence either man ever sexually abused anyone.

Everyone knows where Dorothy lives.

Only the state. On the other hand there are loads of people who think Kansas City is in ( why not? ) Kansas.

Can you link to this tweet? I'd like to see it, and no matter how much I search, I can't find it. Almost like you made it up.

7 ( +8 / -1 )

Only the state. On the other hand there are loads of people who think Kansas City is in ( why not? ) Kansas.

And they're all wrong. You'd think the President of the US, watching the country's biggest sporting event of the year, where the state was mentioned over and over again, could get it right.

But he can't. Because he's brainless.

This is a colossal victory for our farmers, ranchers, energy workers, factory workers, and American workers in all 50 states“

I wonder why he thought he was building a wall in Colorado though??

Or that there were airports during the revolutionary war??

Reading the script from a teleprompter doesn't require much brains............

Well, as is typical, when Donnie has a mental blackout, the Trumpers here all deny reality and double-down on whatever moron-like thing he said...

Donnie could have said the Cleveland Browns won the Super Bowl and the Trumpers would all be sending their congratulations - to Michigan...

There's plenty of evidence.

Trump cultists just prefer the cover ups.

One wonders why they constantly support sex offenders.

That's not fair. Many of us has made that mistake in elementary school before they taught us better.

History is far longer than random lines drawn on a map. More than just a state, it is a region once inhabited by a Native American nation:

Kansas: Siouan people of the American Midwest, 1806, from French, a variant of Kansa (itself in English from 1722), from /kká:ze, a Siouan term referring to members of the Dhegiha branch of the Siouan family. Compare Arkansas. The Siouan word is a plural. Established as a U.S. territory in 1854 and named for the river, which is named for the people; admitted as a state 1861.

Interesting how the media jumps on something so trivial, must be a slow, slow day again when something like this makes the news round, but you do what you must to get them clicks.

True! I like this joke that Trump himself told:

What's the difference between a wet raccoon and Donald Trump's hair?

A wet raccoon doesn't have 8 billion effing dollars in the bank.

A wet raccoon doesn't have 8 billion effing dollars in the bank.

since there are no released tax returns we don't know Trump's wealth but probably nearer to $3 billion not 8.

Presidents always take heat for not knowing their geography. People believe that a person in charge of a country should know their land. Obama took a lot of heat for not correctly knowing the Gulf Coast cities. Also, with a team of people behind you people don't expect mistakes such as this.

Naw, you need a million just to compete in a Presidential race, so it’s true. Not to mention his stocks.

This sheds absolutely no light whatsoever on his claim that he has 8 billion in the bank. Absolutely zero.

He’s a compulsive liar who lied about releasing his tax returns which might help shed light on his claims.

Yea, a Russian bank...as Don Jr and Eric both said "we get all the money we need from Russia"...

And the State of the Union...

Trump: My fellow Americans, it is me, your very humble and very stable genius. I come to you tonight from our nation's capital, Albuquerque...

And just last night I had a yuuge rally in Detroit - it was so nice visiting Canada...

And I am here tonight to announce a new foreign policy initiative with my friend Vladimir Putin - I am going to try to convince him to sell us Alaska...I'm such a great businessman, I know we'll get a great deal...

And don't you like my new tie with the big scarlet "I" on the front? Made with pride in China, like all my clothing line...

Trump's outstanding debt was at least $650 million in August 2016, in addition to an outstanding loan of $950 million to the Bank of China and Deutsche Bank (among other creditors) on 1290 Avenue of the Americas, in which Trump is a minority owner.

lincolnman - Ha, Ha - I remember that well. Miscoloring the US Flag.

That was sooo funny. And it couldn't have been a "miss" like a typo or the like.

He actually colored a whole stripe blue.

Priceless.

And I agree that the Kansas mixup possibly easy to do.

But when you're the IMPOTUS puffing up for brownie points on the Big Stage - well you should just darn well know better.

Get it right man.

OK, Jimizo, we'll be waiting for you to produce the wet raccoon with the $8 billion :D

Trump landslide 2020

Even if Trump loses he won't leave the WH. He will say it's fake news plus voter fraud (He accused 10 million fraudulent votes when Hillary beat him in the popular vote in 2016) and his NRA2AEvangelical followers will protect him to the last bullet. There is proof of that.

Bloomberg would be a better president than Trump since he is more successful in business than Trump which means the same for the country. Bloomberg is worth 60 billions dollars. How much is Trump worth? Bloomberg also has more natural hair than Trump. Trump's fake hair doesn't even come close to looking like hair. Yes, Bloomberg is not as tall as Trump. But lots of good businesspeople are short, and what's the problem with that?

The best thing is that Trump will win both Kansas and Missouri in November.

Sure, maybe he'll congratulate the SF 49's for being runner-up - from the great state of Nevada....he'll win both those states too...

Tomorrow - Donnie shows a map with KC in Kansas - with the border drawn in black Sharpie...

And Trumpers here will go, "that's right, that's right"....

No, sorry..if you have the properties he has, of course you have that much.

That doesn’t mean anything, a lot of rich people don’t want to disclose their finances and I reeeeally understand that.

Break it down for us. You have obviously done the maths and got to 8 billion.

Thanks in advance.

Trump does not own many of the buildings carrying his name

He does licensing deals nowadays, not as much real estate. It's to help hedge against his knack for bankruptcy.

well, there is an American state named Kansas and one of its largest cities is, in fact, Kansas City. usually, when we hear the name Kansas, we think about the State of Kansas. i,m sure this happens with many people, but the thing is... this man is the President of the United States. the largest city in Missouri is Kansas City and it,s the city of one of the teams in the Super Bowl (and winners) and the President just didn,t bother to check... (it,s embarassing and worrying, the fact that he,d need to check or that he thought he was right ...)

-2 ( +4 / -6 )

WRONG!

In its 2019 billionaires ranking, Forbes estimated Trump's net worth at $3.1 billion (715th in the world, 259th in the U.S.) as of 5 March 2019

(Source on Trump's wealth)

Bloomberg is 20x richer which means he would be that much better of a president.

Haha. Kind of like President Obama saying there are 52 states. (there are only 50). Or president Bush vomiting on the Japanese prime minister. Presidents, they are human! There is a Kansas City Kansas, but he should have know that this Kansas City is in MO.

I’m not his accountant. But if it’s any solace, it really doesn’t matter what liberals believe here or.......abroad..lol...I’m just looking forward of him giving more grief and acid reflux to liberals for 4 more years.

He probably didn’t have his teleprompter that day.

It seems like the media could care less about that.

There is a Kansas City Kansas, but he should have know that this Kansas City is in MO

To be frank, many Americans don’t even know that, so this one is a very easy mistake to make.

People from the midwest are used to coasties being clueless, and not just about geography. Most don't know the state capital cities in the region either.

The Chiefs are from the Missouri side, but there is a Kansas City, KS too, just west of Kansas City, MO. There is a state line running through the middle of town, that and the Mighty Missouri river. All 1 metro area.

There are basically 4 things people do in KC. BBQ, Chief game, Worlds of Fun, visit Truman's library. KC-KS, KC-MO, Independence are part of the same metro area. Going between them isn't obvious.

Trump is ignorant about this subject, just like everyone else. If there was a Trump hotel there, I'd bet he would know. I'm ignorant about NYC - and honestly don't care about the location of boroughs there. In many states, city limits cannot cross county lines, but the organic way that cities grow doesn't care about artificial human boundaries.

As reported by Reuters, Obama was howdying a crowd in Beaverton, Ore., on May 9, 2008, when he said: "It is wonderful to be back in Oregon. Over the last 15 months, we’ve traveled to every corner of the United States. I’ve now been in 57 states. I think one left to go. Alaska and Hawaii, I was not allowed to go to even though I really wanted to visit, but my staff would not justify it."

So, it happens. But here's why Trump doesn't get a pass. Because he and his administration have made a HUGE point of picking out the slip-ups of past politicians and questioning people over their supposed lack of knowledge of geography.

I’ve now been in 57 states

He had jetlag and was out of it. Trump slurs his speech ALL THE TIME. He also repeats himself over and over and over. He especially likes to say the word Hillary. Bloomberg would be a much better president. Look how much of a billionaire he is.

A wet raccoon doesn’t think Belgium is a city. blah blah blah

A wet raccoon didn't get the economy booming, take out the top 2 terrorists and avoid a war with Iran or North Korea despite a bunch of provocations, all the while being opposed at every turn by the Democrats and the media.

Bloomberg would be a much better president

Har!
