Twitter Users Hit A Home Run Over White House’s ‘Boston Red Socks’ Gaffe


The White House pool report further compounded matters when it erroneously identified the team as the “World Cup Series Champions.”Twitter users stepped up to the plate to troll the administration over the goofs, including former White House photographer Pete Souza:I really wish that all of the Red “Socks”, despite having won the “World Cup,” would have chosen to skip being in Comrade minus’s presence. https://t.co/kfhAPSPH4y— Pete Souza (@PeteSouza) May 9, 2019

Wow that “Red Socks” misspelling could imperil Trump’s chances in Massachusetts— Burgess Everett (@burgessev) May 9, 2019

If any Democratic White House had called the Red Sox the “Red Socks” and called the “World Series” the “World Cup Series” Fox News would yammer about it for *years*.— David Atkins (@DavidOAtkins) May 9, 2019

“I need you to go to a store there in Boston and buy a package of red socks. Yes, that’s right, red ones. Well the Sox aren’t going to make it to the White House so I thought the President could welcome some actual red socks.” https://t.co/lrIdi7Dj35— John Litzler (@JohnLitzler) May 9, 2019

I know there are bigger issues to focus on than clerical errors by WH staff, but a trifecta today: 1. “The Red Socks”2. Massachusetts “Instutution” of Technology3. The “World Cup Series Champions” pic.twitter.com/At1vwd1CXE— Eli Stokols (@EliStokols) May 9, 2019

Trump’s excuse for being out of touch: The Red Socks have the best socks, the strongest socks. The World Series is surrounded by cups, big, beautiful cups. That’s why they are the World Cup Series Champions. Plus, they have the reddest socks.— Cenk Uygur (@cenkuygur) May 10, 2019

This White House is breathtakingly incompetent. They can’t even invite a baseball team to the White House without messing up. They called them the Red “Socks” and then referred to them as the “World Cup Series” champions. Not exactly reassuring given everything else they oversee. https://t.co/Y1n2dhdoYl— Brian Klaas (@brianklaas) May 9, 2019

The White House is firing on all cylinders.Yesterday, the event page said the “Red Socks” were coming to town.Today, their release congratulated Boston on being “World Cup Series Champions.”What a time.— Chris Cotillo (@ChrisCotillo) May 9, 2019

Trump White House called World Series Champion Red Sox – “World Cup Series” Champion “Red Socks.” If a Democrat had said this, @GOP would never stop talking about. Remember how @FoxNews went nuts over @JohnKerry saying Lambert Field instead of Lambeau. Trump is clueless, elitist.— Cenk Uygur (@cenkuygur) May 10, 2019

Quite an honor for the Red Socks. Such a storied club, and that rivalry with the Yankys is epic.— Chris Snarkington (@chrisinroch) May 9, 2019
