Pull out your Sharpies, Donny Smallhands didn’t know Kansas City is in Missouri

Hurricane Dorian Meeting

More than three years into this hellscape presidency/dictatorship, I don’t even find it mildly amusing when Donald Trump screws up about something relatively minor. I mean, the month of January lasted five years and we still haven’t gotten through the State of the Union. The Senate will acquit Monsieur Smallhands even though the Senate impeachment trial was a f–king joke. My point is that there are more important things to discuss, of course. And yet, here we are. Donny Smallhands didn’t know that the Kansas City Chiefs are in Missouri. The Chiefs won the Super Bowl and instead of taking a second, Donny and his minions were like “of course the Chiefs play in Kansas.”

It. Is. Not. Funny. It’s so painful that this is our daily life now, that we have a fake-president this stupid, and he surrounds himself with stupid people and they all wallow in their own corruption and criminality. Anyway, yeah. The Kansas City Chiefs are in Missouri.

    You know who knows Kansas City is in Missouri? Kenyan Muslim Socialist Barack Obama.

    Lol… iDK how anyone can seriously think Trump can make America great when he can’t properly identify one of its largest cities. Or, you know, fact check a tweet.

    • 10KTurtle says:

      You mean Barack HUSSEIN Obama, as Donald never forgets to mention at his Klan rallies.

      • Jess says:

        Oh god, I totally forgot about how Republicans said or typed HUSSEIN every single time his name came up. That was so fkng hilarious, people are dumb😂

      • Rapunzel says:

        Is he still calling him Hussein at his rallies? God, Obama lives rent free in Trump’s head.

    • AnnaKist says:

      You know who else knows Kansas City is in Missouri? Me. And I’m Australian. Not only is your president a complete twat, but he’s an utter bloody thickhead. I was watching an interview with the wonderful Steve Biddulph last week, the child-rearing expert and a lovely human. Even he said trump is a toddler, stuck in the egocentric stage of development. That would explain his stupidity (no reflection on any toddlers who may be reading this), as well as his little tiny hands.

      God, you guys have another nine months of this clown, but I’m already stressing at the prospect of another four years of this moron.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      And we all KNOW that if Obama had said KC was in Kansas, Fox News would be blasting that coastal elites don’t know the “heartland”. It would be used as an example of how out of touch he is and what a snob he is.

      Meanwhile, I see Trump supporters bending over backwards to make excuses for their fool, again.

      • Rapunzel says:

        Tiffany- yep. But imagine if SF had won. Would Trump have made reference to “the great state of California”? Never.

        BTW- As a lifelong, native born, Californian, the coastal elite nonsense really chaps my hide. Without CA and NY (that other bastion of coastal elitism), the US would tank as a country.

    • olliesmom says:

      He also probably doesn’t believe that Hawaii is a state. You know, because B. Hussein Obama was born there.

    • ALB says:

      The people who voted for Trump don’t care. They really don’t. They’re ignorant, stupid & selfish – but their #1 thing? They hate democrats. Somebody said Trump voters actually hate liberals more than they love Trump & I agree that is *exactly* it. They will make excuses for anything he does & any rightful criticism is just the ‘left wing trying to slander ‘OuR pREsIdeNT’ . Trump is god to them BECAUSE he does all things wrong & amoral that everybody else rightfully is against. The Trump voters love that. They see everything thru the lens of ‘liberals = evil’, which means even the most heinous acts wouldn’t temper their support. If it “owns the libs” (aka ALL ppl of ANY politician affiliation w/moral compasses, not just liberals, sounding the alarm) they’re elated. If it’s cruel or amoral or damaging & ppl call that out, Trumpers love it. They don’t care if Trump ushers in the apocalypse – as long as it sticks it to the dems!

      I am scared about voting machines being compromised. I watched a 60 minutes special on how most of the voting machines are made abroad & it was terrifyingly easy to manipulate them, in person no less. There was even a clip where they had a female hacker less than a minute to compromise it – AND alter the votes. Republicans are corrupt & morally bankrupt. They’ll let Trump set the world on fire if it means keeping power over liberals. That’s literally all they care about.

      And I cannot WAIT when all these old white men start dying off. Most of them are marching towards death year after year & they’re all ancient, which means we might even get a parade of OWM deaths at the same time. History will remember them for the traitors they are – & you can’t protest history when you’re six feet under 🙌 that concludes my novel length comment, apologies 😂

    • holly hobby says:

      Wailin’ Palin started that and I never forgave that white trash heap.

  2. Lightpurple says:

    Perhaps Senators Hawley and Blunt should reconsider their support of this clown

    • Swack says:

      Hawley will never stop supporting Trump because Trump came here to Missouri to support him. Blunt has been on office too long and isn’t going to go against the status quo.

  3. Jerusha says:

    Is anyone surprised? Still waiting for that hurricane that was supposed to hit us in Bama.

    Twitter is having a field day with this.

    • broodytrudy says:

      Donny nuked it so it wouldn’t hit you guys.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      Did you see the emails that came out this week about the hurricane sharpie incident? The agency that handles alerts was freaking out about Trump’s disinformation about the hurricane and how they should handle it.

      It’s so sad, and similar events are probably happening in all kinds of science-related departments of our gov’t.

  4. Smalls says:

    Whyyyy? *sobs*

  5. Millenial says:

    I’m from Kansas. Kansas City is in BOTH Missouri and Kansas. However, the Chiefs (and the Royals for that matter) play on the KCMO side of the border.

    In all honesty, though, KCMO is the cooler side.

    • Larelyn says:

      Eh… from KC area (Kansas side), and they are technically two separate cities, KCMO being older than KCK by over 20 years. And it was in the last century where they grew large enough to touch borders not counting the river. So, your comment “Kansas City is in both” kinda misleads that it is one entity. It’s not, but you know that. Tomato – potato.

  6. Kimberly says:

    A river divides kansas city,Missouri and Kansas city, Kansas…while I can’t stand Don, many non football peeps dont know which is witch….

    • Rapunzel says:

      Many non football peeps are not the President of the country. He should be familiar with its cities, or at the very least do a basic wiki check of the two teams since has to congratulate the winner.

      Why does nobody insist on proofreading his tweets to prevent such embarrassment? Do they just not care?

      • Some chick says:

        He probably hides his phone from the staff and tweets on the loo.

        There are two Kansas Cities. Always ask which one!

        I’ll never forget Tom Ley (then of Deadspin) telling him off on twitter. It still makes me laugh – and I got the t shirt!

      • Esmom says:

        I think about Tom Ley’s tweet a lot. That was years before Trump’s election, too. More proof of how many people have thought he was garbage for…forever.

        Rapunzel, My guess is that his staff doesn’t care. He must be exhausting.

      • Tate says:

        Part of the reason we are in this mess is because people are so willing to continuously sweep his stupidity not to mention his cruelty under the rug.

      • Kimberly says:

        as our president she should know many things…..Kansas City isthe least of our problems lmao🤣🤣

      • 2lazy4username says:

        He’s too arrogant for proof-reading. Let him dig his own grave.

      • weinua says:

        Nah. they’re having such fun with this 45thing…lol!

    • ALB says:

      @Kimberley

      He’s the President of the United States, not just some ‘non-football peeps’ rando….

  7. Larelyn says:

    Here in KC, screenshots were running amok on social media, so my watch party were skeptical since DT’s twitter feed was corrected by the time we tried to verify. Sports Illustrated validated it within seconds, so yup, legitimate.

    We had a MAGA at our watch party, and you know, he’s so busy, it’s an easy, common mistake. Being president is so HARD, guys!

    Bah. What bothers me most is that this idiot will likely be re-elected. By idiots like him.

  8. mildlynerdy says:

    I think he did this on purpose. The NOAA controversy played to his base so he’s recreating that moment.

  9. Ravensdaughter says:

    I don’t even enjoy making fun of him anymore. After all, his candidacy started as a joke/challenge. His stupidity is a distraction from what a disaster this administration is…
    He’s going to be acquitted in this Senate trial, then he’ll be crazier than ever when it comes to destroying this country.
    Today is the Iowa Democratic caucus. I have no idea what’s going to happen in Iowa or the subsequent primaries. (I’m in Washington State, which has no influence). I am a Warren supporter, but the electability switch got thrown with her and I think she’s peaked.
    In any case, whoever the Democratic nominee is, I’m going to the polls in November and supporting him-or, I wish-her.
    Let’s get the corrupt, criminal Trump family out of the White House the old-fashioned way! Come vote with me!

    • What. . .now? says:

      PFFT on the Iowa and New Hampshire caucuses — they haven’t picked a winner in forever. I found this on another site:

      2016: Ted Cruz won the Iowa caucus, but lost the Republican nomination to Donald Trump.

      2016: Bernie Sanders won the New Hampshire primary, but lost the Democratic nomination to Hillary Clinton.

      2012: Rick Santorum won the Iowa caucus, but lost the Republican nomination to Mitt Romney.
      2008: Hillary Clinton won the New Hampshire primary, but lost the Democratic nomination to Barack Obama.
      2008: Mike Huckabee won the Iowa caucus, but lost the Republican nomination to John McCain.
      2000: John McCain won the New Hampshire primary, but lost the Republican nomination to George W. Bush.
      1992: Tom Harkin won the Iowa caucus, but lost the Democratic nomination to Bill Clinton.
      1988: Dick Gephardt won the Iowa caucus, but lost the Democratic nomination to Michael Dukakis.

      So don’t sweat this one —

      • Tiffany :) says:

        When it comes to Demcrats, the Iowa caucaus is fairly predictive. Tom Harkin is from Iowa, so it makes sense that he’d win there by not other states. When it comes to the GOP, it’s a different story.

  10. tempest prognosticator says:

    It just doesn’t matter, that’s what’s so depressing. It doesn’t matter that he’s an utter dimwit; it doesn’t matter that he’s cruel and unscrupulous; it doesn’t matter that he thinks he’s above the law. He may very well get re-elected. We are cursed.

    • Esmom says:

      All of this. As people like to say, we are in the worst timeline.

    • jj says:

      He is just the worst and I still can’t get over his supporters. Are they wearing blinders?

      • ChillyWilly says:

        Nope, they see him for exactly what he is and they LIKE it. That’s what’s so terrifying.

      • (TheOG)jan90067 says:

        He plays to their stupidity, their misogyny, and their xenophobia. He allows their putrid souls feel “powerful” by making them feel “more than…”. And while they’re busy crowing about how “great” they are “again”, the reoubliTHUGS in charge are consolidating their wealth, power, and ideology in the courts. THIS is it in a nutshell

    • Sean says:

      Donald Trump will not be re-elected. He’s going to be RE-INSTALLED. America (or should it be Amerika?) is now a post-democratic nation. The GOP haven’t sold their souls to Trump, but to Putin. Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul have each received hundreds of millions of dollars from Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska (whom Obama placed sanctions on, which Trump has since removed). Lindsey Graham was receiving hundreds of thousands from Len Blavatnik during the 2016 campaign. Graham thought he was going to be the GOP nominee, that’s why he was initially a “never-Trumper”. Then he was called to Trump’s gold resort and came back singing a different tune. The NRA is funneling money from Russia to the GOP. As long as these old, white men can stay in power and have a monitory rule, they’re fine with killing democracy.

      With voter suppression, gerrymandering, as well as hacking and misinformation campaigns, Trump and the GOP may just win again. And it won’t be just for another years either. This is the beginning of an autocracy.

      Lets say there is an insurmountable blue wave in November. Trump and the GOP Senators experience an astounding lose at the polls (popular and electoral college) and by “law” they have to vacate their posts. They control the Senate and Executive branch. The courts and DoJ are stacks with Trump and GOP picks. They have hollowed out our institutions. The ones that were supposed to protect us from things like this from happening. Think of all of the institutions that have failed us prior to the upcoming election. Who’s going to make them leave? The only answer any democrat has given “Well, they’ll have to leave.” Oh really? Who’s going to make them? What institution? I guarantee you they will find a way to obtain a “recount” in their favor. We have eight months until the election, what happens if an event occurs (natural or man made) that allows Trump to declare a national emergency and indefinitely postpone the elections? Or, Barr could announce “criminal investigations” into Trump’s political rival.

      Once an autocrat takes obtains power, it’s very difficult to get them out.

      “A great way to get out of trouble is if you’re the President of the United States and you can pack the courts, you can purge agencies, you can rewrite the law so that you can be immune from prosecution as well as filling your own autocratic objectives and partnering with autocrats around the world, which is what he’s done.

      This is a transnational crime syndicate masquerading as a government.”

      • BeanieBean says:

        This has been my biggest fear. He loses the election, but won’t go, for all the reasons you stated.

      • Rapunzel says:

        I’m not trying to be alarmist, but I recently read about a case coming to the Supreme Court which would decide whether or not electors in the electoral college could be forced to give their electoral votes to the popular vote winner for the state. Right now, it’s possible for the electors to dissent, and indeed but this case could end that.

        I’m telling you all: when I read this, I immediately thought that this is Trump’s doing to ensure he maintains control. I suspect he knows the popular vote is rigged for him (in at least the key electoral states), and is making sure that electors can’t stop him.

        Calling it: This will become a thing. And it’s been planned for.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      He might get re-elected, but he might not. The 2018 elections were a pretty huge rebuke against him, and Dems won even in strong GOP areas.

      I’m not saying you have to be totally optimistic, but don’t let this “he’s gonna win” thing become a self fulfilling prophecy. The majority of the country is not with him, and turn out is crucial. We can’t make voters feel like it is pointless to vote.

      • Jerusha says:

        We have to keep on keeping on.

      • What. . .now? says:

        Sometimes the news is just “alarmist” because–ratings. The fact of the matter is that his polling numbers have not changed. They are stuck at 40%. No, matter how much he bleated about Hoax investigations, it still hasn’t swung any new votes in his favor.

        As @Jerusha says, We just have to keep on keeping on. We have 9 months to go. A lot can happen during that time. Let’s not give up yet. I say this as much to myself as to everyone else.

        Whatever you think about Bloomberg, his committment to putting out ads against trump whether he’s the nominee or not is a good thing. He’s already getting under trump’s skin with it. trumples spent Saturday night hate-tweeting at Bloomberg. Bloomberg immediately tweeted back that he could see his ads were getting under his skin, and then called him fake: fake tan, fake hair and obese.

        Then, there is the Lincoln Project. Some people in it are George Conway and Rick Wilson — who are never trumpers. I saw Rick Wilson on a clip from Bill Maher’s show talking about the Lincoln Project. Their goal is simple: To make sure that trump is not re elected. They are going after trump and anyone who toadies up to him. They are not endorsing any democratic candidate with this project. Wilson said they are not afraid to get their hands dirty for their ads, and they are going after trump with a vengeance–they will say and do the things democrats can’t and won’t say/do during their campaigns. So maybe that will help, too.

    Yes KCMO is cool. The stunning boulevard neighborhoods, food, BBQ, music, theNelson. I just have to add Bar K. Lol

  12. Laura says:

    I’m here in St Louis and it’s all over the news. Even some people here in Missouri are defending him, ( “0h, it’s an easy error, lots of people think KC is actually in Kansas” etc, and it is also, but not the city in question)
    Except that’s he’s the POTUS and it’s the Superbowl. One click on internet would’ve researched it. He can’t be bothered. I hold my President to a higher standard than I hold all these peeps saying they didn’t know either.

    • Swack says:

      St. Louis also. I don’t care who you are, if you are going to make comments, congratulate or talk about a major sports team you should know what city/state they are from. That being said, Trump doesn’t care enough to get the facts straight. He thrives on the negativity and will blame the fake news for all the blowback. I can only hope he gets voted out in November.

  13. Laura says:

    I’m not even American and I know that KC is in MO. Also…congrats to the Chiefs on representing your country in a *checks notes* national competition. Good grief.

    • Jerusha says:

      Yeah, so who was SF representing? Mexico? Ukraine? Puerto Rico? Inquiring minds want to know!

      • Bettyrose says:

        IKR? I’m happy for KC fans, but also wish I could see the alternate tweet if the SF team had won.

      • Rapunzel says:

        Jerusha- socialism. SF always represents socialism.

      • Larelyn says:

        Commenting on what Trump would say if SF would win – we had a joke at our watch party that Trumppence was rooting for the Chiefs. Trumppence couldn’t degrade themselves to root for Nancy Perosi’s team, even if Bosa is a MAGA superfan.

        Sidenote: i hope the Chiefs do not disappoint me if invited to the White House. They are a (mostly) classy group, so I hope they remain gracious and indifferent if invited. I’d honestly would prefer they decline and invitation, but they have a very derply devoted MAGA fan base.

    • 2lazy4username says:

      Well, to be fair, Kansas City IS in Kansas, too. They are two separately incorporated cities that together are part of the KC metro area. The problem is he didn’t know which state the Chiefs are based in. That is one of many, many, many (there isn’t enough room to continue) problems with this…person.

  15. M says:

    Born and raised on KS side and now live near State Line in KCMO. Yes, lots of people get it wrong (pretty much every concert) but they aren’t POTUS. It’s sad but I’m so blissed out this morning (and not surprised considering his intelligence level) that I don’t even care that much. Go Chiefs!!!

    • Amanda says:

      Fellow member of Chiefs Kingdom here (from the MO side)! The only good thing (and it’s marginal) about all of this hullabaloo is at least its one more national reminder of what ever-loving morons Trump and the Trumpettes are. I figure that’s always good to keep at the front of people’s minds, whether they want to acknowledge as much. I have a few MAGA types in the family and even they got eye-rolly on this one.

      I do wonder if the whole team will go to the White House?

      • M says:

        Hello! What a great day to be from KC! I’m so curious about the team going to the White House too. And I know all about MAGA types in the family unfortunately too

  16. Green_Eyes says:

    As one that lives in Kansas & loves the Chiefs.. To be fair Kansas City is divided and there us Kansas City Kansas & Kansas City Missouri. However, if you are going to claim you know EVERYTHING and are the best of the best.. or at least going to congratulate a winning team.. make sure you know who you are congratulating. Hope they do keep the sharpies away, we don’t need Kansas & Missouri redrawn on the map.

  17. Dani says:

    I….did not know this either. I probably can’t even point out Kansas or Missouri on a map.

  18. Lena says:

    Well, I didn’t know that. But then, I have never ever been to the US, English is my third language, like most people in my country never watched American football and I am not the president, so I think I can be excused.

    • Green_Eyes says:

      @Lena oh most definitely my post was meant in regards to Trump.. you know he who thinks he knows everything. The orange stain on the pit of humanity.

  19. Andrea says:

    Kansas City is one of those dual cities, like Bristol TN/VA and Niagara Falls US and Ontario in Canada. I don’t expect everyone to know this, but the fact that the president of the United States had an education that children in the projects could only dream about AND seemingly has a I could care less unless it pertains to me myself and I attitude is what should alarm all of you even moreso.

  20. Ohpioneer says:

    The guy is an idiot BUT there is also a Kansas City in Kansas. On the border of Kansas & Missouri. Right next to KC MIssouri. I was visiting family who were stationed in the military near there a few years ago and I had to keep asking which Kansas City we were in. It’s confusing.

  21. kerwood says:

    The people who are defending this creature would make me laugh, if it wasn’t so tragic and dangerous.

    The mistake 45 made is reasonably acceptable if we’re talking about Joe Six Pack. Not everyone is up on geography. I remember hating it in school.

    But the President of the United States isn’t Joe Sixpack. There is NO excuse for the most powerful man on earth to be so indescribably ignorant. What happened to the United States? How did it sink so very low?

    • Andrea says:

      Some Americans got sucked into the showmanship ala The Apprentice. They wanted a shoot from the hip guy. They got it and he is a moron. I hope those who voted for him even 5% do not do so again.

  22. olliesmom says:

    Wow, Wharton should ask for his diploma back.

    I hope that everyone in BOTH of the Kansas Cities remembers this ridiculousness and does not vote for him in November.

  23. Leah says:

    Now his supporters are like “he was joking, besides Kansas has a Kansas City”.

    Right. But it doesn’t have the football team that just won the Super Bowl. That’s the point.

    They’ll forgive this moron for anything.

  24. Texas says:

    I didn’t even think about KS being in Missouri because my husband is from Kansas and this is so his team. Kansas LOVES this team. But then, I’m not president. And when I did think about it, I knew.

  25. adastraperaspera says:

    I grew up in Kansas. That’s one reason why I chose my online name, Ad Astra Per Aspera, the state motto. For me, the point isn’t the geography screw up. It’s that he really has no idea about basic American culture–it could be sports, art, music, whatever. I’m sure he didn’t watch the game at all–he has an election to cheat in. It’s like this guy isn’t even an American. He knows nothing about us.

  28. Over It says:

    Probably thinks Paris Texas is in France.

  29. Noely says:

    Tbh,as a clueless European, I would have guesses Kansas City would be in Kansas (and I have no damn clue where exactly Kansas is, either), but when you are the president of a country and you are congratulating the team that just won the biggest sports event of said country, you may want to check before you write something utterly ridiculous.

    Unless you’re a stable genius with unmatched wisdom, of course. (And I didn’t notice it until someone pointed it out on Twitter but the way he words it kinda makes it sound as if the Kansas City Chiefs played against a team from another country, with the whole “representing the entire USA” stuff. So San Francisco is not part of the US anymore?)

    And I heard he won’t be impeached now because there are no witnesses allowed, is that true? What kind of logic is that? I mean, how can you prove that someone did shit without listening to witnesses? Why was the question “should we listen to witnesses or not?” even a question?

  30. Blueskies says:

    If I’ve said it once I’ve said it a million times: He’s Donald Trump first and foremost, the conman idiot whom has shown us for decades who he is. Not POTUS, but Trump. He’s also a bully and I think a lot of the WH staff fear him so this lunacy slips through again and again. They’re used to fixing the mistakes afterwards ad infinitum.

  31. holly hobby says:

    And what drives me nuts is that anyone of his a$$wipes can google that and tell him. Lazy and uninspired that’s what we got.

  32. S W says:

    How is this a news story? Kansas City is in both Missouri and Kansas, the city is split – Kansas City is the 3rd largest city in the state of Kansas. All the nonsense Trump says and this is the best you can call him out on? Something that isn’t even factually wrong?
