Fox & Friends defends Trump for congratulating the wrong state on winning the Super Bowl

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T





After President Trump   briefly congratulated   the wrong state on winning the Super Bowl,   Fox & Friends   is quickly providing some defense.

Trump in a tweet on Sunday night congratulated the "great state of Kansas" after the Kansas City Chiefs' Super Bowl win, despite the fact that the team is actually based in Missouri. After 11 minutes of Twitter dunking, Trump issued a follow-up tweet congratulating Missouri, instead.

But the hosts of   Fox & Friends   on Monday decided the original tweet was completely fine, actually. "Kansas City is in Kansas, and it is also in Missouri," Steve Doocy said, insisting the situation is like the fact that "people call them the New York Giants, but they're in New Jersey."

Even though Trump himself seemed to admit his mistake by deleting and re-posting the tweet, Matt Schlapp, chair of the American Conservative Union, took the defense further,   blasting   the "East coast establishment" for not realizing that "Kansas City, Kansas is in Kansas." It seems we have 2020's first   map-related Trump controversy   on our hands.

Should an adult, educated, reasonably well informed person know that the largest portion of the KC metro area is in Missouri ? 

I would say yes, but in Trumpland there are always excuses. 

I looked on wikipedia to see what it has to say on the topic of the Kansas City Chiefs. 

The article on Kansas City Missouri has a paragraph on the fact that the Chiefs are located there. 

The article on Kansas City, Kansas does not mention the Chiefs at all.

It would have been better to not mention a state at all, but if he was going to and left out Missouri, he is simply wrong.

Well yes, but Trump is none of those things.

Sharpies drawn on a map, good folks on both sides, it was a perfect call, where exactly is Ukraine, save the cows, separate families, who cares...excuses are one thing, but it has gone past that and into the surreal.

Matt Schlap is an idiot, by the way.
