Shortly after the Kansas City Chiefs defeated the San Francisco 49ers, 31-20, President Trump took to Twitter to congratulate the champions, as is his usual custom. There was just one small problem with the president’s message:
While there is indeed a Kansas City, Kansas, the Chiefs play in the far larger Kansas City, Missouri. Arrowhead Stadium is about 7 miles from the Kansas-Missouri border.
The tweet was deleted soon after posting, and corrected:
Still unknown as yet: whether the Chiefs will be invited to the White House, or how many players will attend.
By Monday morning, the president’s defenders began pushing back:
There has not, to date, been an opportunity for the president to congratulate either the New York Giants or New York Jets for winning a Super Bowl.
