    Trump Mocked After He Tweets the Wrong State Won the Super Bowl: ‘Typical Trump Foot-in-Mouth Disease’

    Do someone need a geography lesson?President Trump congratulated the Kansas City Chiefs for winning the Super Bowl LIV Sunday night, but in doing so, misidentified exactly which of the 50 states Kansas City is located in.In a now-deleted tweet that was captured in numerous screen grabs, the president wrote, “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!”Also Read: Mike Bloomberg Super Bowl Ad Tackles Gun Violence With Story of Slain Football Player (Video)While part of Kansas City stretches across the boarder between Kansas and Missouri, the Chiefs play in Missouri and the city and its team are largely considered Missourian. The tweet was deleted and reposted, but with the correct state included. Trump and his gaffe trended on Twitter overnight and into Monday morning as politicos tore into him and appealed to voters in states like Kansas and Missouri to consider the implications of the tweet.Filmmaker and Twitter personality Andy Ostroy wrote that the president “spends bazillions on a SuperBowl ad to convince middle America to vote for him and he doesn’t know the difference between Kansas and Missouri. Typical Trump foot-in-mouth disease…”“I urge the people of Kansas and Missouri to think about this in November,” wrote actor and writer Mike Birbiglia. “He doesn’t know who you are. He doesn’t know where you live. He doesn’t know anything about you.”Former Missouri senator and current NBC News analyst Claire McCaskill summed up her thoughts on Twitter like this: “It’s Missouri you stone cold idiot.”Read original story Trump Mocked After He Tweets the Wrong State Won the Super Bowl: ‘Typical Trump Foot-in-Mouth Disease’ At TheWrap

    Super Bowl LIV: Kansas City Chiefs’ Most Famous Fans, From Paul Rudd to Melissa Etheridge (Photos)

    Super Bowl LIV (that’s 54, for some of you) is here and will see the San Francisco 49ers take on the reigning league MVP in Patrick Mahomes, the Legion of Zoom and the Kansas City Chiefs. It’s been 50 years since the red and yellow were in a Super Bowl game. Here are some of the famous faces that will be cheering them on along with all the drunk would be tailgaters (sorry Chiefs fans) when the team heads to Miami for the big game.Paul Rudd: It would seem irresponsible not to start this list with Paul Rudd, who is arguably the celebrity most know as a diehard fan of not only the Kansas City Chiefs, but the city’s baseball team the Royals as well. When the Royals clinched a playoff spot in 2014, Rudd, who grew up in Lenexa, Kan. and attended the University of Kansas, jokingly invited fans to a party at his mother’s house.Also Read: Will 49ers-Chiefs Stop the Super Bowl's 4-Year TV Ratings Slide?Rob Riggle: The funny man and former Marine grew up just outside Kansas City in Overland Park, Kan. and was also a fixture during the Royals recent two World Series campaigns. Riggle told a Chiefs team blog that he’s been waiting for the Chiefs to go to the Super Bowl his entire life.Also Read: Super Bowl Parties 2020: TheWrap's Ultimate Guide to the Hottest Invites in Miami (Updating)Jason Sudeikis: Though younger than Paul Rudd, Sudeikis went to the same high school in Kansas as the superhero actor. He was also a fixture at games during the Royals’ playoff runs and has been a staunch supporter of Kansas City, even wearing a t-shirt of a popular Irish pup in Kansas City’s historic Westport neighborhood in the above photo.Also Read: The Super Bowl Has Generated $3.6 Billion-Plus in Ad Revenue in the Past 10 YearsEric Stonestreet: The “Modern Family” actor grew up on livestock farm in Kansas City, Kan. (which is different from Kansas City, Mo). But if you question his love of Chiefs, just scroll through his Instagram to see photos of him in the locker room and video of him beating the drum during home games.Brad Pitt: If Paul Rudd is the actor most famously known to be a Chiefs fan, then Brad Pitt is simply the most famous Chiefs fan. While walking the red carpet at the 2020 SAG Awards, which happened to be the same day the Chiefs punched their ticket to the big game, fellow Chiefs fans tossed Pitt a hat to rock on the carpet.Melissa Etheridge: The country rock icon, from Leavenworth, Kan., is a longtime supporter of the red and yellow. She even sang the National Anthem ahead of the AFC Championship game last year agains the New England Patriots.Henry Cavill: The Kansas City Chiefs have a Superman, which is fitting, since the comic book character grew up just over the state line in Kansas. Cavill, however, is English from  Jersey in the Channel Islands. That however hasn’t stopped him from cheering on the Chiefs via his Instagram.Read original story Super Bowl LIV: Kansas City Chiefs’ Most Famous Fans, From Paul Rudd to Melissa Etheridge (Photos) At TheWrap
