NFL legend Jim Brown says he ‘fell in love with’ Trump during face to face meeting; he’s over Hillary

Legendary NFL running back Jim Brown “fell in love” with Donald Trump and he isn’t shy about admitting it.

Brown, regarded by many as the greatest running back in the history of the NFL, was a Hillary Clinton supporter but said the president-elect won him over when the two met on Tuesday.

“I could have sat back and said, ‘Well, Hillary didn’t win, I’m just going to sit on my butt and complain,'” he told CNN’s Anderson Cooper. “But see, the one thing about this country, if you get off your butt and you apply yourself, you can be successful. But if you want to be delivered, you’re talking about the wrong country.”

The Hall-of-Famer said it’s time for Americans to get behind our new president.

“In my opinion, people that go against the election are going against America” he said. “We have free elections, everybody can vote. We fought for that, we brag about that, and we know we’re going to have a winner and we’re going to have a loser. So, my point is if we respect the winner and approach that person and have access to that person and that person will look at what we’re presenting, that’s not too bad.”

Cooper tried to play the race card by saying Trump’s cabinet was “predominantly white, predominantly male” but Brown shot that down quickly.

“A lot of the black people in my community might think I’m a sellout by saying this. The three greatest people in my life as a young person were white. My high school superintendent, my high school coach and a graduate of Manhasset High, Kenny Molloy who was a mentor to your truly. And so I’m not a person who really deals in color,” he said.

The comments were similar to what Brown said earlier in the day on CNN when he referred to Trump as “my president” during an interview with a stunned Brooke Baldwin.

Brown also said he expects Trump to serve for an eight-year term.

“I fell in love with him because he really talks about helping African-American, black, people,” he said.
