Adelphi Men’s Lacrosse Team Enters Field To Donald Trump Speech While Carrying American Flag (VIDEO)
The Adelphi University men’s lacrosse team decided to do something different recently as they used a speech by President Donald Trump as their entrance music before a game.
A school spokesman stated the entrance, which includes the speech with a musical soundtrack, does not violate school policy. The video shows the players all lined up with the guy in the front holding an American flag.
Then, audio of a Trump speech begins.
“In all of our cities and all of our towns, I make this promise. We will make America strong again. We will make America proud again. We will make America safe again. And we will make America great again.”
At this point the players start running onto the field.
The speech concludes, “God bless you, and good night. I love you.”
Adelphi athletic director Danny McCabe said in a statement:
“The men’s lacrosse team’s regular-season pregame warm-up music is selected as a team and approved for use so long as they do not contain vulgarity or inappropriate subject matter. The songs they proposed and used this season meet those guidelines. As such, we are obliged to follow the policy.”
Men’s lacrosse coach Gordon Purdie added in a statement that the team “traditionally has chosen patriotic music” to accompany their entrance to the field.
“It was not intended to provoke or be taken as a political statement,” he said. “We’re sorry if anyone was offended.”
