The San Francisco 49ers have more on their plate to think about than a potential visit to the White House, but somebody decided to get that question out of the way.
Asked by Scott Ostler of the San Francisco Chronicle if the 49ers win Super Bowl LIV — 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman had this to say when asked if he would visit the White House.
“I haven’t thought about it,” Sherman told San Francisco Chronicle’s Scott Ostler regarding a White House visit. “We’ve got a long way between now and then, but I doubt it.”
If enough players state publicly that they won’t go, there is a chance that President Donald Trump might not invite them as he did with the Golden State Warriors after critical comments from Stephen Curry.
Sherman had a different tone when he visited the White House after the Seattle Seahawks beat the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII, as noted by Mercury News.
“By all accounts, the Seattle Seahawks had a jolly good time at their White House visit,” reported the outlet. “They took selfies. They took a tour of the people’s house. They shook hands and joked with the commander in chief. And the commander in chief joked right back.”
President Obama even joked at the time, “I considered letting Sherman up here to the podium and giving him the mic. But we gotta go in a little bit.”
Trump does have a huge supporter in Nick Bosa who famously tweeted and deleted support for him and made remarks calling former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick a “clown” prior to the draft.
He has since deleted those tweets and kept his personal beliefs to himself.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
