NFL Great Tickled To Spend Time With 'Great President' At College Championship Game

By this point in time, most folks have made their minds up about President Donald Trump. His supporters continue to love him, detractors dislike him even more, and those without a strong opinion about him wish everyone else would pipe down.

There’s a ton of loud voices on both sides of the argument, and they’re the ones that tend to control the conversation. As such, those loud voices point to an incredibly fractured electorate that’s teetering on the brink of anarchy.

But is it really that bad? If we filter out the noise from those that continually light their hair on fire about anything and everything, is our country really that divided?

That’s really tough to say, and that’s mainly because the noise gets all of the attention. However, there are plenty of folks out there that can calmly express their opinions without simultaneously auditioning for a role in a dramatic theatrical production.

Unfortunately, those folks don’t share their thoughts all that often, and that’s mainly because they have no desire to deal with the drama. However, every once in awhile these folks will speak up and dish out their own dose of common sense that others would be wise to perk up and pay attention to.

Former NFL great Herschel Walker falls into that category. He just so happens to personally know the commander-in-chief, and he has a message for those that insist he’s an unconscionable human being that will certainly lead us all on the path to doom.

As USA Today shares, Walker chatted with Fox News in advance of Monday night’s epic college football national championship game between Alabama and Georgia. The Georgia alum was pretty stoked that Trump was going to be in attendance, and he wasn’t shy about saying so.

Back in the 1980s, Trump owned the New Jersey Generals, which was a team in the USFL that Walker briefly played for. The league never quite got off of the ground, but Walker has fond memories of his time spent with Trump.

"We've talked and we're going to meet tonight. I haven't seen him in a while."

"A lot of people don't know I played for him in the USFL. We've been friends ever since,” he said.

“We still work together on some things — well we did before he became the big man on campus, as you may say. And so tonight, I'm excited to see him."

In the current environment, it actually takes a ton of courage for someone to acknowledge that they don’t think Trump is all that bad. Allow that to sink in for a moment.

"I'm glad he's at the game, because he loves football," Walker added. "It's sad what's happened with all the kneeling and standing and all that, because Donald Trump is a great man, he's a great president and I wish people could understand that."

For Walker, things are pretty simple. There’s a little thing known as respect for the office of the president, and he’ll abide by that regardless of who is in charge.

“I say respect the White House, guys,” he continued. “We voted for him to be president and because of that, we have to respect him as our president.”

That’s a perfectly fair sentiment, but some folks completely disregard it in the current climate. As they see it, the sky is going to fall in any second, and the louder they yell reinforces how darn upset they are about it.

In a perfect world, they will soon realize that the theatrics are serving absolutely no purpose other than making our nation look completely awful to outsiders.
