We learned a couple of things during the CFP National Championship Monday night in Atlanta: First, we learned that President Trump is wildly popular. Second, we got a reminder that the clowns at ESPN are as unethical, cowardly, and pathetic as ever.
President Trump attended the title game and took part in the pre-game ceremonies. Trump was met with raucous cheers when he entered the playing field. ESPN was silent. In fact, their announcers never mentioned Mr. Trump’s name before or after the ceremony he took part in. Chris Fowler simply kicked it to the pubic address announcer before the national anthem. After the Star Spangled Banner was performed by Zac Brown Band and beautifully accompanied by David Walker & High Praise, mum was still the word from ESPN when they continued the broadcast toward kickoff.
The current President of the United States attended a major sporting event and participated in the pre-game ceremonies, yet the network covering the event never mentions the man. It’s simply because they hate him and frankly because they’re butt hurt that he always tells them to do you know what in their hat when they ask for interviews. Let that sink in, folks.
The showcasing of our national anthem was done well by college football. The NFL could learn something here. It was really a special moment. But instead of actually covering what just happened, ESPN fumbled. The announcers don’t even mention President Trump after a rousing national anthem in which he stood proudly with military members and sang along with his hand on his heart. Imagine Obama were at the game. They’d talk about what a ‘guy’ and what a ‘fan’ he was for ten minutes. Trump? NOT ONE WORD. Cowards. There’s no other way to put it. It’s dishonest and it’s weird.
