NFL Legend Brett Favre Hit With Brutal Backlash After Boldly Endorsing Trump
NFL MVP and Green Bay Packer legend Brett Favre faced severe backlash after joining other pro athletes endorsement of President Donald Trump.
Three-time NFL MVP Brett Favre just became the latest pro athlete to make his endorsement of President Donald Trump official. Like the sports legends before him, Favre faced an immediate onslaught of deranged hate from liberals that we have unfortunately come to expect in these kinds of situations.
NFL MVP Brett Favre Endorses Donald Trump
The Mississippi native and Green Bay Packers fan-favorite quarterback is hailed by many for his feats on the football field, like his legendary starting streak, and his common-man, aw-shucks “love of the game” attitude.
The 51-year-old is also a strong Christian role model whose faith never wavered and credited God for his success.
Friday morning Favre tweeted, “My Vote is for what makes this country great, freedom of speech & religion, 2nd Amnd, hard working tax paying citizens, police & military.”
Brett Favre closed his endorsement with, “In this election, we have freedom of choice, which all should respect. For me & these principles, my Vote is for @RealDonaldTrump.”

Brett Favre And Donald Trump Have History
Though this marked the first time that Brett Favre made his endorsement of Trump this election official, it is far from the first time that he has publicly spoken favorably about the president.
Earlier this month, Favre told the Washington Examiner that he had played golf with Trump over the summer, and that he enjoyed his company.
While he said he does not agree with every single thing that the president has done, he made it clear that he thinks he’s done a good job in office.
“Well, I think the fact that I went and played golf with him, the assumption is that I support him,” Favre said.
“I think he’s done a good job for our country. Is he perfect? By no means is he perfect. Tell me someone who is perfect other than Jesus Christ, and I’ll call you a liar.”
Today, Favre was expected to surprise supporters as the special guest at Trump’s rally in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

Brett Favre Hit With Hateful Backlash From Liberals
As per usual, liberals showed that they can’t handle it when even one celebrity dares to express support for President Donald Trump.
People immediately started hurling below-the-belt attacks at Favre.
Some even called for Favre and anyone else who dares to support Trump to be “cancelled” forever.
There can never again be a place in polite society for people like Brett Favre or Jack Nicklaus. By endorsing Trump, they’re entering into a criminal conspiracy to continue his mass murder streak. Boycott Nicklaus’ golf courses. Remove Favre from the hall of fame. No mercy.

Brett Favre chooses to support trump. Please make sure we "choose" to not purchase products like Copper Fit that he represents. We have a choice.

Others tried to bring up alleged skeletons from Favre’s closet to assassinate his character.
Brett Favre tried to steal over $1 million from the state of Mississippi, sent lewd photos to a sports reporter & sexually harassed her, and recorded an anti-Semitic video.
Of course he is endorsing Trump. So did the Taliban.

Some liberal fans threw their Favre jerseys in the trash in disgust, then proudly showed off photos of what they’d done online.

Kathy Griffin Gets Involved
Even the radically liberal comedian Kathy Griffin got in on the action, tweeting, “Your political influence is non existent.”
Your political influence is non existent.

That’s rich coming from Griffin, who seems to think that she single-handedly can ensure that Trump loses this election if she rants against him enough on her twitter page.
Notably, yesterday marked the 13-year anniversary of Brett Favre’s “Mile High Miracle”.
At 37 years old, his joyous on-field celebration perfect exemplified his love of the game that made him popular well beyond the limits of tiny Green Bay, Wisconsin.
It’s also a great reminder that life is worth celebrating – football is a game that’s meant to be enjoyed.
It’s sad that we live in a time where simply endorsing the president opens the door for such vile attacks.
The hate being slung at Brett Favre over his Trump endorsement confirms that no one is off limits. Not even an American football legend.
Luckily, Brett Favre is a strong American who can handle any amount of hate that liberal crybabies throw his way.
