Celebrity Trump Supporters Flip Out After Completely Misreading Garth Brooks' Shirt Ed Mazza HuffPostFebruary 28, 2020, 4:10 AM EST Country music icon Garth Brooks is hearing something other than cheers from supporters of President Donald Trump who completely misunderstood the meaning of a jersey he wore to a concert in Detroit over the weekend. Brooks’s SANDERS 20 shirt was meant to honor Detroit Lions great Barry Sanders. But Trump fans believed the name referred to Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who is running for the Democratic presidential nomination, and the number of this year’s election. According to the MLive website, he told fans at the concert: Brooks said the Pro Football Hall of Famer wasn’t just the greatest player. “He’s also one of the greatest human beings that you’ll ever get to witness and be with,” Brooks said. “He’s a good cat. It’s an honor to wear this jersey tonight.” He also posted an image of himself in the jersey on social media and that when Trump supporters flipped out: Many of the comments featured long-running inside jokes from fans of a comedy show. However, more than a few expressed surprise and outright anger at the jersey, leading to rants against Sanders and socialism. Some exhorted the musician to keep out of politics: Several comments went viral on Twitter, thanks to one user’s screenshots: 31.6K people are talking about this https://www.yahoo.com/huffpost/garth-brooks-sanders-jersey-091026799.html People who aren't smart enough to know who Barry Sanders is and what he meant to Detroit and the Lions, or aren't intelligent enough to do a little research to figure it out, aren't smart enough to cast a vote. They should sit this next election out while they educate themselves. As always, just my opinion GO RV, then BV
