The Kansas City Chiefs won the Super Bowl on Sunday, and President Donald Trump swiftly tweeted his congratulations to the “Great State of Kansas” on the big victory.

The only problem? The Chiefs are based out of Kansas City, Missouri. 

The Chiefs defeated the San Francisco 49ers by a score of 31-20. It was the franchise’s first Super Bowl win in 50 years.

Trump quickly deleted the erroneous post but, of course, screenshots live forever. 

To be fair, folks in Kansas were likely rooting for the Chiefs on Sunday, and there is a Kansas City, Kansas. In fact, Missouri’s Kansas City lies right along the border with the state of Kansas. But the fact remains, the Kansas City that won the Super Bowl is in Missouri — a city that is named after the Kansas River

This is astounding. Trump thinks the Kansas City Chiefs play in Kansas. Unfathomable ignorance of his own country. (He’s since deleted this tweet.) pic.twitter.com/3osc90sAhH

Trump attempted to move on from the embarrassing tweet by posting a corrected version of the Kansas City tweet a little later.
