Following a victory over the New York Giants last Sunday, Kirk Cousins received a call from President Donald Trump.
Once that information got out, some around the sports world took issue with that as Trump remains a divisive and controversial figure around the country as he faces impeachment and potential removal from office.
In talking about this call, the Minnesota Vikings quarterback defended his actions in taking that call by noting that he would put politics aside to speak to whomever was the President at the time.
Cousins simply wanted to show respect to the President who was in office, not because he’s claiming to be a Republican or Democrat. In today’s climate, however, you’re either one or the other and will be judged accordingly unfortunately.
