The Kanas City Chiefs won their first Super Bowl in 50 years on Sunday night.
As a result, residents of the state in which this football teams plays spent several hours celebrating.
They also spent several minutes, we presume, shaking their head over the following depressing fact:
The President of the United States has no idea where they actually live.
Not long after Patrick Mahomes and company completed their 31-20 victory over the San Francisco 49ers, Donald Trump Tweeted the followiing message:
“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!”
But here’s the thing, you guys:
The Kansas City Chiefs play in Missouri, not Kansas.
President Trump has since deleted this erroneous message, but this is the Internet, you know?
Yes, he’s posted a revised, correct version of the same Tweet, one that accurately lists Missouri in place of Kansas.
Nothing is ever gone forever.
And he’s since been dragged all over the place for not knowing basic geography in a country over which he presides as Commander-in-Chief.
It’s almost as if Donald Trump doesn’t care at all about any United States citizens.
It’s almost as if he’s an extremely dumb person.
And there’s at least some non-zero percent chance this mistake plays some role in the 2020 Presidential election, if folks in Kansas and/or Missouri get as offended as they ought to over such ignorance on the part of the President.
That may be wishful thinking on the part of Democrats, however, as both these states are as red as the jerseys on the Chiefs last night.
In other, less troubling and confounding news from the Super Bowl:
Demi Lovato completed her recovery from a near-fatal drug overdose in July of 2018 to sing a wonderful rendition of the national anthem.
It’s been universally praised on social media, which is typically a result almost no version of the Star-Spangled Banner at a major sporting event can ever hope to achieve.
Check out the performance here:
And speaking of universally praised sporting event performances?
Did you catch the Jennifer Lopez and Shakira halftime show?!?!?!?!??!?
There was a lot of dancing, some terrific singing, a tribute to Puerto Rico, a cameo by Lopez’s 11-year old daughter on the microphone and just so darn much booty and hip shaking.
Like, SO darn much:
Was this the best halftime performance of all-time?
Observers who apparently forgot all about Prince seem to think so.
Watch the above video and decide for yourself.
And then compare the work of these incomparable artists to others who have taken the Super Bowl stage in recent memory:
