Liberals have been encouraging professional athletes to speak out on politics.
But they get furious when those athletes criticize Democrats.
And NFL superstar Aaron Rodgers just blasted a Democrat for one corrupt act.
Surefire Hall of Fame quarterback Aaron Rodgers has become an enemy of the Democrats.
Rodgers, who was recently traded to the New York Jets, was one of the few players who spoke out against Joe Biden’s vaccine mandates and refused to get vaccinated, which of course infuriated liberals.
And Rodgers has ruffled feathers again after endorsing one comment from former Green Bay Packers teammate David Bakhtiari.
Bakhtiari reacted to a Twitter post that called out California Senator Dianne Feinstein for getting filthy rich from stock trading as a member of Congress.
The tweet read, “Diane Feinstein returns to Senate. Feinstein, 89 years old, has some of the most unusual trades in Congress, over her thirty year career. In that time, her net worth sky rocketed to over $200 million. Let’s look at some of her unusual trades: Feinstein reportedly attended Covid hearings by the CDC in early Jan 2020. Afterwards, her husband sold between $1.5 & $6 million in stock Allogene Therapeutics amongst others. The stock market collapsed shortly afterwards. Feinstein was cleared by the DOJ.”
The poster detailed several other “swampy” transactions that she made while serving in the U.S. Senate.
In response to the Twitter thread, Bakhtiari said, “How are we as a nation just ‘cool’ with actions like this? It’s cheating in broad daylight.”
Rodgers replied, “Finally, Dave,” along with a gif of a movie character waking up – the obvious implication is that Bakhtiari has been awakened to the corruption of the D.C. Swamp.

In other words, Bakhtiari might have just been “red-pilled.”
The stock trading corruption has gotten so bad, Congressman Matt Gaetz and Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, two people who despise each other, came together on a bill to stop members of Congress from trading stocks while in office.
While members of Congress themselves don’t make trades, their spouses do.
Feinstein’s late husband and Nancy Pelosi’s husband both have shockingly high rates of return on investments.
It’s almost as if they knew what legislation was or was not coming down the pike.
The Twitter user detailed some of Feinstein’s other trades as well:
“In April 2018, Mark Zuckerberg testified before the Senate’s Judiciary Committee, which Feinstein sat on. But in Jan 2018, Feinstein’s husband bought $250,000 Facebook stock. Only in May 2018 did Feinstein disclose the $META purchase. Feinstein praised $META in the hearing…On Dec 4, 2009, Feinstein & her husband bought $1 million in Amyris Biotechnologies. It was their only transaction the entire year. Weeks after, the company was awarded a $24 million governmental grant. Later, Feinstein introduced her own bill that benefited Amyris Biotech.”
These types of shady transactions have been happening for years, but people are beginning to notice.
After the past few years of the COVID regime, Rodgers was vindicated.
Perhaps now people are listening to some of his other political opinions.
