NFL Legend Fran Tarkenton: Trump Boycotters Are Stupid. ‘Nobody Boycotted Obama ‘Cause He’s Black’

Fran Tarkenton is not only an NFL legend, he’s a HUGE fan of Donald Trump. TMZ caught up with him in New York and asked him about athletes who say they won’t go to the White House if invited because Donald Trump is now President. He bluntly called them stupid and disrespectful and I agree. Trump is the President now, have some respect and some integrity. We support our President. I don’t remember anyone pulling this when Barack Obama was elected. In fact, there was a waiting list to go to White House parties. Iman Shumpert is showing a total lack of class for saying he would not go. And I’m disappointed in Lebron James as well… he’s still on the fence about it. It should be a no-brainer.

Anytime a sitting President invites you to the White House, it is an honor. Even for those that are already famous in their own right. And frankly, sports figures have become too much a part of the news and political cycles. This goes to honoring the leader of your country that was selected by a majority of your fellow Americans. For eight long years, we suffered under the Marxist boot of Barack Obama. But we didn’t revolt and most showed deference to him as the President. Donald J. Trump deserves the same respect and all this boycotting is just moronic.

Actually Fran there were quite a few athletes that boycotted an Obama WH visit. But don't let the facts get in the way of your narrative.

I love how folks on both sides enjoy a bit of "gerrymandering" of the facts in order to try to prove their point. Whats funny is that these facts are all readily available to folks for free. So either these individuals are 1) totally ignorant, 2) outright stupid, or 3) dishonest. Either way, they have no credibility, except to others who similarly have a disregard for facts that don't jive with their preconceived notion.

Those who want to accept an invitation can visit. Those who don't can stay home and complain and face the social consequences, if any.

And by the way, we don't need your help!
