Former NFL QB Fran Tarkenton Says Athletes Who Boycott Trump White House Are ’Stupid’ (Video)
NFL Hall of Fame legend Fran Tarkenton was recently stopped by a TMZ cameraman and was asked about athletes who will refuse to go to the White House while Donald Trump is in office.
“If a President of the United States, our #1 guy, invites you to the [White House] and you’re gonna boycott it? Because why? It’s stupid.”
“Nobody boycotted Obama because he’s black did they? No. They all went there because he was our president. And you respect our president. No matter whether you’re for him or not.”
New England Patriots QB Tom Brady actually declined to go to the White House while Obama was in office. In 2013, three members of the Miami Dolphins from their perfect 1972 season decided to decline a White House visit with Obama because they didn’t like him either.
