President Donald Trump spent the better portion of Saturday afternoon golfing with his friend and NFL legend Brett Favre. Favre is best known for his long tenure as quarterback of the Green Bay Packers. They hit the links at Trump’s own course – the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey- which is set to host the PGA Championship in 2022.
The President and the Hall of Fame quarterback didn’t just spend the day hitting the links, though. The two also reportedly engaged in important conversations about sports and the role they have in reopening the economy and unifying the nation in the midst of a pandemic.
“Today President Trump played golf with legendary Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre,” said Brian Morgenstern, White House Deputy Press Secretary, via Milwaukee, Wisconsin news-based TMJ4 News. “They discussed the importance of sports as a critical unifying and uplifting part of the safe reopening of America.”
It’s unclear what the context of Donald Trump and Brett Favre’s conversations revolved around outside of the role of sports at this time. But one might assume Colin Kaepernick could’ve been a topic since Favre is a former football player as well.
Wonder how the MSM will spin this story into Trump-bashing negativity…
