Might be a genius move. By intentionally misstating it as "Massachusetts" people have to attract attention to this point if they attempt to correct it to "Connecticut."
One of the tactics I use in debating people is to occasionally misstate something on purpose, making it just egregious enough that someone is likely to object to it. In order for them to dispute it, they have to look up the correct information, and express it themselves. (Which was my goal all along.)
I have been saying since the day this buffoon came on the stage to constantly and relentlessly claim he FAILED Most of his classes at Harvard and Columbia and might have been thrown out of occidental for drug use, force these people to produce the documents, put them on the defensive, just like “You Didn’t build that” is doing.
