President Donald Trump took to twitter Saturday morning, but tweeted about a topic you wouldn’t have thought was weighing on his mind- the Chicago Bears.
Most mornings, President Donald Trump takes to twitter to express his opinions on a variety of topics. The President spends most of his time focused on the media, the goals of his administration, or how things are progressing at the White House, but every once in a while he goes off course.
Trump has taken to twitter to discuss the drop in ratings of his television show, “The Apprentice,” as well as his displeasure when Nordstrom’s pulled his daughter’s clothing line from their stores. Trump has also delved into the sports world from time to time and when he tweets about the NFL, it’s usually not very positive, as you can see from this tweet from a couple of years ago:
Trump has kept his sports takes to himself since being elected President, but Saturday morning things changed as Trump surprisingly directed his tweets towards the NFL and the… Chicago Bears?!?
Trump has always had an interest in professional football, dating back to his involvement in the USFL in the 1980s, so it’s no surprise that Trump is keeping an eye on the what’s going on in the National Football League. It had not been known that Trump had followed the Bears, but perhaps he started when Jay Cutler publicly endorsed him after he won the presidency.
In any event, check out the tweets that Trump unleashed this morning on America’s favorite sport.
It’s no surprise that Trump doesn’t like the new rule changes. He has mentioned in the past how he wishes football would go back to its previous rules and not worry so much about safety and concussions.
Trump’s support of Cutler is no surprise. Trump fights for his supporters and never thinks too highly of those who oppose him. The same goes with athletes. Tom Brady has publicly supported him and Trump went after the NFL for DeflateGate. With the Cutler and Mike Glennon news happening a couple of weeks ago, it does seem odd that the President chose today, April 1st, to tweet about the Bears’ quarterback situation but this is a new era we live in.
There’s no need to go back and check the President’s twitter feed, the tweets he posted have since been deleted. Was the President’s account hacked? Or did he decide that tweeting about Cutler and Glennon on the first day of April was rather foolish and deleted them himself?
At this point, the only one who truly knows might just be the President himself. And, of course, the fact that it is … Happy April Fool’s Day.
