Oh do check this out…
Looks like someone in the White House press office needs to brush up on his or her U.S. geography.
The press office issued credentials to those reporters and photojournalists who are covering the president’s trip this week to Washington state, California, and Colorado. The credential even provides a handy graphic highlighting (in white) which states the president will visit.
The only problem?
Wyoming is highlighted, not Colorado. To be fair, both states are rectangular, nearly identical in size, and stacked next to each other. But we doubt our third grade teachers would buy that!
There are several delicious things about this. The first is simply that CNN reported it! OMG! CNN?!? I guess the bloom is off the rose, huh?
The second is snark. Don’t you just love it?
Finally there’s the pile on. For example, ConfederateYankee said
But He’s The Most Brilliant Human Who Has Ever Lived! And so is everyone who works for him. OK, so they can’t tell Colorado from Wyoming, but those are both sparsely populated backwaters in flyover country where the natives are all inbred and vote for Republicans, so what do they care?
They don’t care and they didn’t thing anyone would catch them anyway.
