President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump are hosting a Super Bowl party today when the New England Patriots face off against the Philadelphia Eagles.
The first family will watch the game at the Trump International Golf Club in Palm Beach, Florida, according to a presidential schedule released by the White House. Last year, the Trumps held a Super Bowl party at Mar-a-Lago, where the president predicted the Patriots would win (they did).
This year, President Trump diplomatically punted when asked who he thinks will win. “I better not get involved,” he joked to reporters on Friday.
Trump is probably rooting for the New England Patriots, given his longtime friendship with team owner Robert Kraft and quarterback Tom Brady. The Patriots team went to the White House in 2017 after winning the Super Bowl last year. Brady was unable to attend, citing his mom’s ongoing cancer battle.
President Trump and Tom Brady have been golfing buddies for years, but the star quarterback has been reluctant to voice his support for Trump after facing vicious media backlash.
In 2017, a motley crew of unprofessional “journalists” pressured Brady to distance himself from Trump. “Anyone of note who’s supportive of the president of the United States must recant and submit to a public flogging,” Mediaite bleated. “Those who fail to comply must be named and shamed.”
The shameless public bullying of Trump supporters has now become so normalized that the media thinks it’s their job to embarrass anyone who supports the president. The underlying assumption that Trump-bashing is acceptable ignores the fact that almost half the country voted for him.
According to leftist media, being friends with President Trump means you support all his policies and must be ready to defend them at all times. Interestingly, the same harsh standards were never applied to the celebrity friends of Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama.
