NFL Stars on the “Right” Side

Honorable Mention:

Nick Bosa (San Francisco 49ers)

NFL rookie Nick Bosa is not afraid to voice his opinions on different topics from Black Panther to Beyonce (what a brave soul to take on the BeyHive) to his support for President Trump, God forbid. But before Bosa was going to be drafted to the San Francisco, the Twitter police had found that Bosa had tweets showing that he supports our president. He did eventually let NFL fans bully him into deleting the tweets before he was drafted in 2019.

5. Tom Brady (New England Patriots)

If it’s bad enough that people hate Tom Brady for winning six Super Bowls, when the media found out that he supported President Trump, it was just gasoline to a fire. Like Bosa, Brady had to backtrack on his support for the President when he started getting heat for simply wanting to support his president. At least this took “deflategate” out the spotlight.

4. Brett Favre (Green Bay Packers)

Back in 2014, former Mississippi Senator Thad Cochran had the help of Mississippi native and arguably one of the best Packer players ever, Brett Favre, in the Mississippi Republican primary. Favre also starred in a political commercial for interim Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith in 2018. Even though he has stated that he “doesn’t like to talk politics,” he sure does have a knack for endorsing Mississippi Republicans. My money is that he’ll come out of retirement again before he becomes a politician.

3. Peyton Manning (Indianapolis Colts and Denver Broncos)

If this Louisiana native isn’t slinging the pigskin and breaking NFL records, you can find Peyton Manning (and little brother Eli) donating and endorsing GOP politicians like George W. Bush, Jeb Bush, Mitt Romney and Fred Thompson. Even though some GOP politicians have said that they can see Manning maybe running for a Senate spot in the future now that he is retired from the NFL, the future Hall of Famer said that he has no interest in the political world. But if that changes, Mr. Manning you will definitely have my vote!

2. John Elway (Denver Broncos)

Hall of Famer quarterback and GM of the Denver Broncos, John Elway, has been nothing short of generous when it comes to donating for GOP politicians in Colorado. In 2017, Elway donated $10,000 to Better Colorado Now, an independent expenditure committee that supported Republican Walker Stapleton. Elway and his wife, Paige, both donated $14,825 to Stapleton’s Victory fund. FEC records showed that when Elway was helping Stapleton then he was making donations to U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman of Aurora, CO. 

1. Herschel Walker (Dallas Cowboys)

“Just because you want to build a wall doesn’t make you racist.” “It ain’t gonna be about Republican-Democratic. With him, it’s going to be about who’s best for the job.” Wise words from one of college football’s greatest running back, one of President Trump’s first celebrity endorsers, and a man who claims to do 3500 sit ups and 1500 push-ups a day. Herschel Walker. Unfortunately, ever since President Trump took office, Walker has been losing clients and speaking gigs all for the simple fact that he has a relationship with our president.
