Whoops! The Kansas City Chiefs are from Missouri.
President Trump late Sunday caught flack on Twitter after he mistakenly congratulated the "Great State of Kansas" after the Kansas City Chiefs, whose home field is Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Mo., won the Super Bowl LIV.
That tweet was quickly deleted and replaced with a corrected one.
“Congratulations to the Kansas City Chiefs on a great game and a fantastic comeback under immense pressure,” the corrected tweet reads. “We are proud of you and the Great State of Missouri. You are true Champions!”
Of course, the incorrect Tweet saw swift reaction on social media, taking Trump to task over the mistake.
Comedian Gilbert Gottfried wrote, "Like Dorothy said in The Wizard of Oz, "I don't think we're in Kansas anymore.'"
It appears, based on the mistaken Tweet, that Trump did not watch the Super Bowl.
