Donald Trump and Jeb Bush both agree on the one important issue – the Washington professional football team should be allowed to keep its name. Yes, it appears someone got some politics in your sports. Last week, Bush showed his support of the offensive name. Via the New York Times:
“I don’t find it offensive.”
OK then! Over the weekend, Trump gave fellow rich guy Daniel Synder his support.
“Honestly, I don’t think they should change the name, unless the owner wanted to,” Mr. Trump said in an interview.
“I know Indians that are extremely proud of that name,” he said. “They think it’s a positive.”
Well, I guess it’s settled then. Donald Trump, the guy who says a bunch of wild stuff off the top of his head totally knows some people who aren’t offended by that word. Debate over. Back to your regularly scheduled sports and politics.
