Ben Carson Tweeted an Incorrect Map of the U.S.

If you have a good eye (or any knowledge of U.S. geography), you may have caught a mistake in the map Ben Carson tweeted on Tuesday.

If you look at the real map he tweeted on Wednesday, you should notice the difference.

Prrrretty embarrassing for someone running for President of the United States, though Refinery29 points out that it could have been a dumb mistake by a campaign staffer. Still, though, shouldn’t Carson have people on the lookout for possibly campaign-derailing gaffes like this? Surely someone who has seen a map of the U.S. before should have noticed that New England just…doesn’t look like that.
