Tiger Woods made a statement about Donald Trump that the media hated
ESPN is on a mission to turn every sport into a political statement.
One ESPN reporter tried to bait Tiger Woods into attacking President Trump.
But Tiger shut him down with one sentence.
Love him or hate him, Tiger Woods drives TV ratings and crowds to golf tournaments.
With Tiger briefly leading the field at the British Open earlier this year, TV ratings were up 37 percent over last year.
So ESPN thought they could get another high-profile athlete to attack Trump.
But they were severely disappointed.
Here’s the exchange:
“TIGER WOODS: Well, I’ve known Donald for a number of years. We’ve played golf together. We’ve had dinner together. I’ve known him pre-presidency and obviously during his presidency.
REPORTER: At a time – especially in 2018 – I think a lot of people, especially colored immigrants are threatened by him and his policies, he’s thrown himself into sports debates with LeBron James and the anthem, what do you say to people who might find it ‘interesting’ that you have a friendly relationship with him?
WOODS: Well, he’s the president of the United States. You have to respect the office. No matter who is in the office, you may like, dislike personality or the politics, but we all must respect the office.”
Over the past decade ESPN has turned from a sports news company to little more than a propaganda outlet.
They consistently pump up pro athletes who espouse their leftwing views.
After the first week of the NFL preseason, they spent more time covering a handful of players’ national anthem protests than the actual games.
President Trump responded to their latest attack with this tweet:
The Fake News Media worked hard to get Tiger Woods to say something that he didn’t want to say. Tiger wouldn’t play the game – he is very smart. More importantly, he is playing great golf again!
