A Pats fan despite the reputation for "loving" Trump...
I have seen it asked a number of times over the past two years: "How can you support the Patriots when they are Trump-humpers"?
1.) Kraft is a friend of Trumps, sure. Brady might also be one, but that doesn't mean that the entire team supports Trump. It also doesn't even mean that Kraft or Brady support Trump's current policies or rhetoric.
2.) How many other owners in the NFL are Trump-humpers? How many don't like Trump but would support any other Republican politician? How many players would do the same?
3.) Regardless of what team wins (including the Pats), we all get to eagerly await the vocal no-shows for the traditional meeting with the president. Furthermore, since Brady is "known" to be friendly with Trump, it is even more sweet when he decides not to attend the meeting with the president (regardless of his stated reasons).
Maybe he realizes he would be nothing without his African American teammates who Trump routinely abuses, unless one believes an all white team would be successful in today's NFL.
Reminds me of the old SNL skit with Michael Jordan integrating the white NBA.
Might be different in the Superbowl though, who knows?
but he'll do it in private so people won't see what a loser he is no matter how many rings they toss at him. The only ring people will see is the one in Brady's brown nose that Trumpy drags him around by.
Trump might be able to drag some Republican politicians around by the nose since in many ways their jobs depend on him. I cannot imagine a scenario where Trump could "drag" Brady around by the nose in a similar way. How would that even work? To what purpose?
It's the overt cheating and embracing fraudulent medical practices (which suggests additional cheating is happening) that I object to.
While I find voting for Trump to be distasteful and indicative of being at best an idiot, that I can at least understand. But justifying and supporting sell snake oil to desperate people is utterly despicable. Cheating to "win" isn't much better and makes a mockery of the physical struggle that makes sports worthwhile.
