Jerry Jones continues to show just how out of touch he is with reality, especially with his latest comments.

The Dallas Cowboys owner might be upset his team didn’t qualify for the postseason, but he is thrilled to boast about his team drawing the biggest crowds in the world despite the pandemic.

“I’m gonna arm wave,” the 79-year-old said on 105.3 The Fan. “I think we set the world record for attendance for a venue this year at our stadium, in the world of a pandemic.”

The Cowboys stated they had more than 20,000 people at all 8 of their home games in 2020.

Dallas Cowboys home game attendance this season:

  • Week 2 vs. Falcons: 21,708
  • Week 4 vs. Browns: 25,021
  • Week 5 vs. Giants: 25,147
  • Week 6 vs. Cardinals: 25,174
  • Week 9 vs. Steelers: 31,700
  • Week 12 vs. Washington: 30,048
  • Week 15 vs. 49ers: 30,092
  • Week 16 vs. Eagles: 30,131

Not exactly the thing he should be bragging about considering coronavirus numbers in Texas have been some of the worst in the country, with a reported 1.83 million cases in the state and more than 28,000 deaths.
