Earlier this year, Donald Trump said he doesn’t watch much NFL because the referees throw too many flags and the league has gone soft due to player safety concerns.
He apparently hasn’t changed his stance because he took the opportunity to both praise his supporters and diss the NFL today when a woman fainted during one of his rallies in Florida.
“That woman was out cold and now she’s coming back,” Trump said. “See? We don’t go by these new, and very much softer, NFL rules. Concussion. Oh, oh! Got a little ding on the head. No, no, you can’t play for the rest of the season. Our people are tough.”
Zing. We’ll see if this holds up to strenuous fact-checking.
