NFL star who shows up to Super Bowl presser donning Trump swag flies under the radar

Kansas City Chiefs defensive end Frank Clark is an extraordinarily lucky man.

Why? Because the left is too busy right now attacking a white woman who wrote a bleeding-heart novel about the experiences of illegal aliens — apparently, it’s a form of “cultural appropriation” for white liberals to write about the experiences of illegals; who knew!? — that they haven’t noticed the unforgivable sin he committed last Friday.

The sin was that Clark showed up to a Super Bowl press conference while wearing a pro-Trump t-shirt containing a photo of the “historic” moment that President Donald Trump met prolific rapper and singer Kanye West.

Watch:

“Never forget man, you all know the moment when Donald Trump met Kanye, you know, a very historical moment in our history,” he said when asked about the shirt.

In normal circumstances, Clark’s decision to don pro-Trump wear would be a call for mass social media outrage and chants of “Uncle Tom from the “tolerant” left. But in this case, criticism has been fairly muted because of a noted lack of media coverage.

There’s still criticism, granted, but just not as much of it.

Here’s some of it below (*Language warning):

None of this is to suggest Clark is a Trump fan. He may be, and he may not be. In fact, some conservatives suspect he may have just been trolling, i.e., playing around.

Either away, he’s earned applause for being willing to stand out from the crowd and say/do something controversial, regardless of whether he really supports the president.

He’s also earned free promotion from conservatives eager to highlight his contributions to society.

Observe:

Just so you know, there’s no record of Clark ever trash-talking the president.

There’s also not much of a record of him being targeted by left-wing animus. Not at the moment, at least, for it turns out the left has been too busy attacking Jeanine Cummins, a white liberal author who traveled to Mexico, spoke with migrants and then wrote a novel documenting the experiences of a fictional illegal alien.

“Lydia Quixano Pérez lives in the Mexican city of Acapulco,” the book’s Amazon description page reads. “She runs a bookstore. She has a son, Luca, the love of her life, and a wonderful husband who is a journalist. And while there are cracks beginning to show in Acapulco because of the drug cartels, her life is, by and large, fairly comfortable.”

But then she meets a man, Javier, who turns out to be the boss of a powerful drug cartel, and after her husband writes a piece about Javier, she and her son are forced to flee.

“Lydia and eight-year-old Luca soon find themselves miles and worlds away from their comfortable middle-class existence,” the description continues. “Instantly transformed into migrants, Lydia and Luca ride la bestia―trains that make their way north toward the United States, which is the only place Javier’s reach doesn’t extend.”

The book is designed to portray illegal immigration — which in reality costs Americans billions of dollars per year and serves as a conduit for killers, rapists and child molesters to sidle into the country — in a sympathetic light.

Nevertheless, Cummins has now become public enemy numero uno to the increasingly irrational, far-left “woke” crowd because of her skin color.

“American Dirt has received tons of negative coverage — not from the sort of Trump-supporting anti-[ILLEGAL ALIEN] people who might be expected to object to the story’s ideology, but from liberals who think Cummins is engaged in cultural appropriation,” Reason magazine’s Robby Soave reported.

Cummins is white—though she has claimed a Puerto Rican grandmother—and stands accused of writing about peoples and cultures to which she does not belong.”

If it weren’t for Cummins and her book, there’s a chance that Clark would be the focus of the left’s rage right now. But fortunately for him, the only ones really talking about him at the moment are the legions of conservatives who’ve just become his biggest fan:
