Trump Mocks NFL Concussion Rules: ‘Oh! Oh! Got A Little Ding On The Head’
So we're pretty sure at this point that Donald Trump knows the jig is up -- he has no chance to win this election. So he's fortifying his base with god ol' red meat rhetoric, traveling the country to speak at large rallies where he can relax among a soft, lush forest of "Hillary For Prison" t-shirts.
Trump is eyeing Plan B -- which reportedly focuses on creating a media outlet not unlike Ted Turner's TV/radio empire. So to maintain his core of supporters his campaign has become the disgusting carnival food of politics (let's say, oh, deep fried sugar cubes). There is nothing he won't say, do, or eat.
At a rally today, the man who ruined the USFL is now mocking new NFL protocol rules involving head injuries.
“Look, that woman’s coming back,” Trump said about a supporter who had apparently fainted at the Lakeland, Florida, event and then returned. “That woman was out cold and now she’s coming back! See, we don’t go by these new and very much softer NFL rules.
“Concussion! Oh! Oh! Got a little ding on the head, no, no, you can’t play for the rest of the season,” continued Trump, who in 2014 failed in his bid to buy an NFL team.
... isn't this the man who applied for five military deferments, one because of a boo-boo on his heel?
Anyway, the NFL recently settled a lawsuit and paid $765 million to past head injury sufferers. That's not quite the $978 million that Trump lost in his 1995 business ventures (according to leaked tax records), but it's in the ballpark.
So when a woman who apparently fainted at Trump's rally today then came back after being checked by medics, that was perfect fodder for his Archie Bunker routine.
“Our people are tough,” Trump said.
And to many of them, the "War on Football" is an actual thing.
The war on football is real. Not sure source but concussion alarmists are loving it. Liberal media loves it. Doesn't matter. It's real.
