Trump Supporters Flip Out After Completely Misreading Garth Brooks' Shirt

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: 

“I was lucky enough to be an athlete and to wear the same uniform as this guy wore in college. I was lucky to go to school with him. You guys got the greatest player in NFL history in my opinion in this jersey. I love this man.”

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: 

“G is a Democrat socialist!”

“Sanders???? WTF Garth???”

“If this is for Bernie Sanders, I’m done with you. I thought you were a true American that loves Our Country?”

“Weird. That a millionaire would like a socialist. Hey Garth are you going to distribute your millions?”

“Sanders is a foolish , crazy socialist!” 

“Good grief. Can’t you just do what you get paid to do ???? Why why why does it have to involve politics !!! So sad. We don’t pay good money for anything other than to watch you perform.”

Several comments went viral on Twitter, thanks to one user’s screenshots:  

 

Facebook forgot who Barry Sanders is and is freaking out at Garth Brooks for wearing a jersey and I’m dying.

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

People have picked their sides.  These people are for Capitalism.  What are you going to do if Sanders wins the nomination.  Will you vote for Socialism.  If you hold Dinar Sanders is the absolute last person you want in the White House.

Sorry, the dinar valuation has nothing to do with the guy in the White House.....if so, the Orange Peel would have gotten us dinar investors paid over the last three years.  Besides, this article is about people being so stupid that they didn't recognize an "aging" NFL hall of famer jersey....while attending an "aging" country musicians concert.

First off.....Barry Sanders.....just awesome.....

 

Perhaps if the Jersey had been " Honolulu Blue".......(that's the team color.....right?) more people would have made the connection...

 

You are correct.... Trump hasn't had a change in IQD value in the past 3 years......Obama for the 8 years prior.....

 

And your reference....."orange peel".....is that really necessary?

 

Wonder what you would have named Obama if you were not in favor of his Presidency?

I perfectly understand a handful of people made dumb tweets, much like the Dems do daily.  People tend to lose their minds and make dumb tweets when it comes to politics.  Orange Peel, really, I thought we were past the name calling!!!  

 

I’m just trying to have a conversation with you.  I know you hate the President.  You tell us your opinion EVERYDAY.  MY question to you was, will you vote for Sanders if he wins the Dem nomination.  Imo, if you do that is a vote for Socialism.  Is that what you want, is that what you support?  I think the Dems have a very very difficult situation brewing.   It’s the same as the last election.  Again, just my opinion, but if Americans HAVE to choose between Trump and Sanders I believe Trump wins.  Trump, hate him or Love him, is a non candidate.  Sanders is a wild card and no one knows what he will do.

I never called Obama names other than his real name which is or was Barry.  Let’s try to talk politics without the name calling, the acrimony, the hysteria, and the I’m right you’re wrong arrogance.  If not I have better things to do.

I tend to look at it as vote against Trump....not a vote for Bernie.  Anyway, we're getting way ahead of ourselves here....Super Tuesday will be much more enlightening.  And the name calling is not to any specific member of this site....it's simply a term of endearment for Donald....like, Little Marco, or Crazy Bernie, or Horse Face Fiorina, or Low Energy Jeb, or Crooked Hils, or Mini Mike.....get the picture?, seeing the standard bearer?

No problem....as long as it's across the board for all posters in this thread, not just me.

This whole thread was simply to illustrate that it's not only Lefties who can be uneducated and easily triggered.....it's just a jersey after all.

I know a handful of DNC people and delegates.  Bloomberg is who they told me back in Nov.   I thought that was very interesting and I think he could give Trump a good run for his money even with his problems with being a billionaire, and his racist comments,   He has the money and I have to say his adds are very compelling.  He has the money and he can stay in the race until the Convention.  I still believe the Dems will have a brokered nominee.  After Super Tuesday most of the Dem candidates should concede and throw their backing to a person who can beat Trump.  Sanders will not beat Trump imho.

A small form I suppose.....not even close to the acceptance of those who vote for him regardless of his acid tongue, though.  ;)

So in retrospect, I will NEVER vote for Trump...and Sanders is the Dem equivalent of Kale...but if I don't vote at all, by my standards, I lose my right to an opinion.  So fingers crossed it's not Bernie.

Its a problem many will face if Sanders wins.  The DNC knows it and that’s what is freaking them out.  If Dems will not vote for Sanders then Trump wins in a landslide imo.  That’s why Bloomberg makes the most sense.  He is a viable candidate that many that don’t like Trump can stomach enough to GO vote.

Agreed....I however, will simply have to plug my nose and cast my vote...even if it's simply symbolic in a losing effort.  I have to be able to sleep at night, after all.  :D

Someone to explain what is the difference between Sanders DemSocialist Party and Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei  National Socialist German Workers' Party" (Nazi Party of Hitler) or the Communist Party of USSR

(Soviet Union) ???
