Donald Trump Jr trolled the liberal press over the New England Patriot’s unbelievable Super Bowl win. Down 28-3, it appeared that the Patriots’ hope for a fifth Super Bowl were almost dead. In fact, two liberal sports writers declared the Falcons the winners before halftime. This shows why hens wait to cackle after they’ve actually laid an egg.
The liberal media and snowflakes all across America were rooting for the Falcons solely because the owner, the coach and the quarterback were all friends with President Donald Trump.
But recently, that blind faith has faced its greatest test in the form of the team’s connection to Republican President-elect Donald Trump.
The trouble began when Patriots reporters spotted Brady with a Make America Great Again hat in his locker in Foxboro in the fall of 2015 (feels like a lifetime ago, doesn’t it?), soon after Trump announced his candidacy and called Mexicans rapists in the same speech. Over the past year and a half, the team’s ties to Trump have only grown stronger.
On Sunday, February 5th, Brady’s Patriots will square off against the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI. The Patriots are three-point favorites to win the high-flying matchup, though a new poll released Monday by Public Policy Polling indicated that they also remain the most disliked team in the NFL. That number likely increased after Brady, when asked about the election of President Trump during a Monday press conference, claimed ignorance, replying, “What’s going on in the world? I haven’t paid much attention. I’m just a positive person.”
Maher tonight said he truly cares about the Super Bowl results for one big reason:
“The Falcons are playing a team where the owner, the coach, and the star quarterback all love and support Donald Trump, so I’d really like for them to lose by a score of a million fucking thousand to none.”
The larger point here, he said, was about how Trump has managed to make everything political these days.
But he also found some time to tell Tom Brady and Bill Belichick, “Fuck you!”
But the Patriots did win in extremely unusual and heroic fashion. They overcame a 25 point lead even though no previous team had even overcome a 14 point lead. They took the game into overtime for the first time in Super Bowl history and won the game on the very first drive.
Enter Donald Trump Jr with the most devastating (for some) thought of the night:
When the Patriots made their historic comeback, Don Jr. went back through the Wall Street Journal’s tweets to find when they’d tweeted, “The Falcons now have a 91.6% chance of winning Super Bowl LI.”
Trump added, “Where have I seen stats like this before?”
The same liberals who saw Hillary pull defeat from the jaws of victory have just suffered deja vu from election night. All night they were confident of victory, only to see their dreams of a third Obama term get smashed on the sidewalks like a cheap wine bottle. So, too did the liberals and the real fans of the Atlanta Falcons see their dreams disappear from sight.
“Touche” Donald Trump Jr, touche.
