LSU quarterback praises Trump after ‘awesome’ White House visit: ‘He showed so much love’

After members of the LSU Tigers met with President Donald Trump at the White House this Friday, Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Joe Burrow seemingly pushed back on criticism from anti-Trump obsessed liberal Democrats upset over the visit.

He showed so much love to everyone on our team,” Burrow told reporters during a post-meeting presser. “I don’t care if you’re a Republican, Democrat — I don’t care about politics at all — that was an awesome experience for everybody.”

Suffice it to say, the age-old ethos of sportsmanship and camaraderie ought to take precedence over political bickering, he seemed to argue.

Listen:

In response, some members of the liberal left rudely lashed out at Burrow, because in their seemingly deranged world, everything centers on the maxim #OrangeManBad.

“Burrow might get a seat in the Trump administration with all that a– kissing,” angrily wrote a Twitter user whose feed appeared to be both a shrine to former President Barack Hussein Obama and a compilation of the current president’s alleged crimes.

Others followed suit with their own hateful barbs.

Look (*Language warning):

“When you can steep in the privilege you are provided you have no care at all,” the latter Twitter user wrote.

Care about what exactly? The victims of illegal alien crime? The victims of Obama’s campus kangaroo courts? The victims of America’s opioid epidemic? The victims of racism and discrimination? The victims of unnaturally high prescription drug prices?

In his own statement to reporters made after Friday’s meeting with the president, LSU Tigers head coach Ed Orgeron added that none of his players boycotted the meeting, though some reportedly stayed back to continue their training.

He also praised the president for his extensive knowledge of football.

The meeting Friday between the LSU Tigers and the president was prompted by the team’s stunning performance in the NCAA this season — and particularly this week.

“Louisiana State University, led by its Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Joe Burrow, capped a perfect season defeating Clemson in a 42-25 game for the College Football Playoff National Championship,” NPR reported Tuesday.

And pivotal to the team’s victory was Burrow.

“Early on, defending champs Clemson, going in with a 29-game winning streak, managed a 10-point lead over LSU, a team hungry for its first title victory since 2007,” NPR noted.

But LSU stormed back and Burrow showed why he is the best player in college football, cleaving Clemson’s rock-solid defense with five touchdowns, no interceptions and a record of 463 yards on 31 of 49 passes.”

And FYI, both the president and his wife, first lady Melania Trump, attended the game — and to much, much, much fanfare.

Watch:

After the victory, Trump invited the team to the White House for a scheduled visit, and unlike less gracious sports teams, the Tigers not only accepted the offer but even went on to present the president with a gift during their meeting Friday.

Watch:

Those sane, non-hateful Americans who appreciate the importance of sportsmanship and camaraderie — particularly at a time of such political partisanship — have been quick to shower the team with praise for the incredible amount of class and dignity that’s been displayed this week.
