President Donald Trump has been on a tear lately – traveling to different states in his free time and holding rallies – so that he can communicate directly to American citizens without the biased filter of the liberal mainstream media.
President Trump commented on Colin Kaepernick unsigned status in the NFL earlier this week.
And on Tuesday, liberal ESPN nearly every single personality debated the consequences and the levity of President Trump’s remarks.
Trump said at the Kentucky rally speech on Colin Kaepernick:
“You know, your San Francisco Quarterback, I’m sure nobody ever heard of… (boos) I’m just reporting the news.
There was an article today… I love to report the news and then they said I made a mistake, right? I said, no, the people reporting the news made a mistake if it’s wrong.
But there was an article today, it was reported, that NFL owners don’t want to pick him up because they don’t want to get a nasty tweet from Donald Trump.
Do you believe that?
This is what was said, but it was misunderstood because his intention was tongue-and-cheek and sarcasm.
On Highly Questionable with Dan Lebatard and Bomani Jones, Dan Lebatard expressed his opinion following the above rally quote from Trump:
“I mean, that’s petty, obviously. But I’m not sure that he’s wrong with general view of teams don’t want this kind of distraction in their huddle.
They don’t want any kind of distraction and they especially don’t want them at this position and if you look at the kind of numbers on Colin Kaepernick. ,
There aren’t a lot of other explanations for why it is he wouldn’t get a job somewhere in the league, when Geno Smith is getting a job somewhere in the league.”
So essentially what Dan Lebatard is saying is that he agrees with President Trump, but he also thinks that’s petty.
Okay, moving on.
On SportsNation, the west coast obviously liberal analyst show repeated the same exact same Trump rally clip.
Co-host of SportsNation, LZ Granderson, who was a former ABC political analyst that covered the Republican National Convention while Donald Trump was just a nominee and now works for ESPN, was asked about if he agreed with Trump:
“(Laughing hysterically directly after clip) Ummmm… I’m gonna handle it this way because I too would like to keep my job. There is an element of truth to what he is saying because when you look at the politics of the NFL owners, not necessarily just because of Donald Trump, but just because of the philosophy and the platform of the Republican Party.
There seems to be a consistency there of where the owners are donating and what Donald Trump is talking about, particularly, Republicans did not take kindly for what Kaepernick was doing last season.
So I think there is an element of some truth the fact that we know that NFL owners and teams don’t like distractions. We also tend to know that they tend to be more conservative in terms of their donations and political influence.”
What’s the source on that “tend to be more conservative” fact? Are they open about it or are you basing this on the Donald Trump, Tom Brady, Bill Belichick and Robert Craft circumstances that unfolded when the media discovered a “Make America Great Again” hat in Tom Brady’s locker?
On The Six, Michael Smith also commented after the EXACT same Trump clip (seriously they played it over and over again as if people weren’t getting it) “That’s more than a tweet, that’s a sound bite. The type of sound bite, I hate to say it Jemele, but it seemed like a career-ending injury, not physical obviously, but to his image.”
Associating a political view to an unintentional physical injury is genuinely one of the most absurd metaphors ever. One of these is about complex thought that decides your next move and the other is about unintended freak accidents.
ESPN even ran a “Vote: Do you think Trump’s beef with Kaepernick has deterred teams from signing the QB?”
In all seriousness, how could ESPN be anymore obvious about your political bias? It’s like they all pray for the day when Trump says something sports-related so that they can show everyone how they skew politically. Set the record straight.
