I can only hope there’s some disciplinary action taken. This was vulgar and unnecessary.
President Trump decided to attend the 2018 College Football National Championship between Alabama and Georgia.
He ruffled the feathers of fans outside of the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia, as they were forced to wait outside the stadium in the rain, while his motorcade and security drove in.
Inside, the players had their own thoughts.
Video was taken of the Alabama team making their way to the field, and at least one player couldn’t contain himself. He shouted out (to no one in particular), “F**k Trump!”
Alabama running back Bo Scarbrough yelled the expletive as the team walked onto the field for the game, according to a clip shared by Sporting News.
It looked as if coaches and trainers were coming up behind him, but none appeared to be upset. I would have made my way through the crowd and informed him he could go back to the locker room.
That’s not what I saw.

I’ll say, it’s hard to tell if this is in response to Trump’s feud with NFL players, or if it was just his general feelings.
Either way, it was thuggish and low. It was gutter behavior, and it needs to be left on the streets.
