Trump congratulates wrong state for Kansas City Chiefs’ Super Bowl win
Trump congratulates ‘Great State of Kansas’ for Chiefs win
Super Bowl champions are based in Kansas City, Missouri
Well, yeah, common mistake actually. But silly.
However, this is fun:
Michael Bloomberg traded insults with Donald Trump on Sunday, calling the president “a pathological liar who lies about everything: his fake hair, his obesity and his spray-on tan”.
The comment, made through the Democratic presidential candidate’s press secretary, came in response to abusive tweets and remarks the president made in a Super Bowl interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity.
In a quick-fire section of the interview, Trump was asked what he thought of when he heard the names of various political rivals.
“Very little,” he said of Bloomberg. “I just think of little.”
Bloomberg, 77, is 5ft 8in tall. Trump, 73, is 6ft 3in.
Trump then repeated an evidence-free claim, also made on Twitter earlier, about Bloomberg demanding special treatment in the Democratic presidential primary because of his height.
“Now he wants a box for the debates to stand on. OK, it’s OK, there’s nothing wrong, you can be short.
Getting right up the nose of your opponents is good – well, don’t forget, this is politics, not statesmanship. This is one of the things Trump gets, at least in part it’s a jeering match between tribes. “Oi, Shortarse” doesn’t quite work. But getting all of your people to associate one of their with being a shortarse does.
