Says Chiefs Are From Kansas State

Says Chiefs Are From Kansas State”

Morning Joe delighted in mocking President Donald Trump for sending out a tweet congratulating the Kansas City Chiefs on their Super Bowl victory last Sunday night, as well as the state of Kansas itself.

"You represented the Great State of Kansas and, in fact, the entire U.S., so very well". Taking to social media to congratulate the Kansas City Chiefs on their win, he mistakenly confused their home state of Missouri with Kansas.

And but, Donald Trump nonetheless managed to mess it up when he applauded the Kansas Metropolis Chiefs for representing the fallacious state. "Our Country is PROUD OF YOU!".He later deleted the tweet and replaced it with one naming the correct state.Reaction online was quick - and not too polite - toward a commander-in-chief who's had a troublesome history with maps."It's Missouri you stone cold idiot", tweeted former Missouri Sen. However, just as it seemed that the league's best defence - the 49ers would come out on top in Miami, Patrick Mahomes led-Chiefs engineered a fourth-quarter comeback to beat the San Francisco 49ers 31-20 at the Hard Rock Stadium.

"It's Missouri you stone cold idiot", responded a former U.S. senator from the state, Claire McCaskill.

Lauren Arthur, a current Missouri state senator, tweeted: "Wrong state". However, if you look at a map that you think the U.S. President absolutely needs, it is relatively easy to understand.

That would have been an absolutely good tweet - and certainly its most harmless - if there had been just one small detail: The Kansas City Chiefs are not based in Kansas and never have been. Another person referred to the President's Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, who recently tried to embarrass a reporter by asking if she knew where Ukraine was on a map.
