While few politicians are as polarizing as Donald Trump, almost everyone agrees — irrespective of party affiliation, creed, sex or nationality — he isn’t afraid to share his opinions on Twitter… including his thoughts on sports. The President was in office only a short while before his first official football tweet as POTUS was to comment on Super Bowl 51’s result.

TWEETER IN CHIEF

Trump sent congratulations via Twitter to the triumvirate of Tom Brady, Robert Kraft and Bill Belichick after the New England Patriots shocked the Atlanta Falcons 34-28 in overtime.

Trump’s particular interest in football shouldn’t come as a surprise considering he was once the owner of the erstwhile USFL’s New Jersey Generals.

REMEMBERING THE USFL

Some have wondered if the USFL would still be going strong had Trump not convinced the league to schedule games head-to-head with the NFL in 1986.

Alas, the USFL is no more, but with the advent of Twitter, Trump has found the perfect platform to continuing opining on football.

MIXING SPORTS WITH POLITICS

In October, 2013, Trump took then President Barack Obama to task for what he perceived to be misplaced priorities…

…which is causing some political commentators to decry as hypocritical his current attack on NFL players taking a knee during the anthem.

In January of last year, the Donald seized an opportunity to take a simultaneous dig at Republican primary opponent Jeb Bush and the New York Jets. Woody Johnson’s team had just missed out on the playoffs when they lost a turnover-riddled game to the Buffalo Bills.

The vast bulk of the real-estate mogul’s football tweets concern his not-so-secret man-crush on Brady. At a rally in New Hampshire during the Presidential campaign, Trump claimed to have garnered Brady’s vote, although Brady’s wife Gisele Bundchen attempted to scuttle the claim with a comment posted on Instagram.

Whether or not he split the Brady family’s vote, Trump had made his admiration of Mr. Brady abundantly clear over the years…
