Confident Nevada delegate gets his own state capital wrong at the RNC

If you’re planning to speak on behalf of your state in front of thousands of viewers, it’s probably a good idea to learn your state capital first.

Michael J. McDonald, state chairman of the Nevada Republican Party, appears to have missed that lesson when he came to represent his delegation at the Republican National Convention on Tuesday night. He misidentified his state capital as Las Vegas instead of Carson City, a common mistake made by American schoolchildren.

“From the great shores of Lake Tahoe, to the most entertaining capital city, Las Vegas, Nevada, this time what’s said in Las Vegas will not stay in Las Vegas,” McDonald said.

It’s possible that McDonald meant to say “entertainment capital Las Vegas,” but either way, the error was made. What’s said at the RNC will not stay at the RNC, Michael McDonald. It will be viewed on social media.

Here is video of that beautiful gaffe:
