Super Bowl 2020: Donald Trump Makes Embarrassing Error In Chiefs Win Tweet
President Donald Trump took time out of his busy schedule, in between his impeachment and the State of Union address, to congratulate the Kansas City Chiefs on their memorable Super Bowl triumph over the San Francisco 49ers.
However his tweet was somewhat tainted by the fact that he made a geographical error in relation to the victors.
Trump stated “Congratulations to the Kansas City Chiefs on a great game, and a fantastic comeback, under immense pressure. You represented the Great State of Kansas and, in fact, the entire USA, so very well. Our country is PROUD OF YOU!”
The issue here is, of course, that the Kansas City Chiefs aren’t from Kansas, they have always hailed from the neighboring state of Missouri.
On finding out his error, Trump deleted the tweet as if nothing had happened, but not before millions had noted the mistake.
He then posted a fresh tweet where he changed the location from Kansas to Missouri and sent it out to his millions of followers.
The Kansas City Chiefs overcame a 20-10 deficit going into the fourth quarter before QB Patrick Mahomes burst into life, throwing two touchdown passes before Damien Williams rushed in another score to win the game 31-20.
It is the first time in 50 years that the Chiefs have triumphed in a Super Bowl and Mahomes was understandably the man of the moment.
