NFL Legend Brett Favre Breaks Silence On Golfing With Trump: It Was An Honor Just To Be Asked To Play

NFL Legend Brett Favre shamed his liberal critics who went after him for the cardinal sin of golfing with President Trump.

The intolerant left cannot stand this type of disobedience and took some cheap shots at Favre. Today, Favre broke his silence with some important words well worth listening to.

“He was as nice and engaging as he possibly could be, considering what type of stress he’s under,” Favre told Fox News. “But I’ll say this: I respect the office of the president of the United States, regardless of who’s in office.”

 

“Had Barack Obama, George Bush, Bill Clinton, anybody during my era, had they asked me to play golf, I certainly would have jumped at the opportunity, simply because regardless of what they believe in, just to be asked is an honor.”

“We had a couple of holes where we picked up, no score was penciled in, but for the most part, he can play,” Favre said.

“He hits the ball very good and I’ll also tell you this, he’s a fast golfer. There was times I had a 140-yard shot and he’s up there at the green with his putter, ready to go.”

From Fox News:

Trump has had a thorny relationship with the NFL in the recent past, publicly criticizing protests against racial injustice during the national anthem. Favre, on the other hand, said earlier this summer that free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who led the protests in 2016, deserves another chance in the NFL.

In a statement shortly after the golf outing, the White House said the president and Favre had “discussed the importance of sports as a critical unifying and uplifting part of the safe reopening of America.”

Favre praised the president for his ability to handle the pressures of the Oval office.

“I said, ‘I don’t know how you do it, Mr. President, the stress, I can’t imagine.’ He said, ‘I love it.’ It takes a special person to want to face the things that he has to face every single day,” Favre said.

“You’re damned if you do, damned if you don’t. If you please some, others are pissed. You please one that was pissed, the ones you were pleasing the day before, they’re pissed.”
