Democrats promoted the profane hateful message ‘F*** Trump’ that was projected in large letters on the facade of Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta Monday night as President Donald Trump attended the College Football Championship game between Alabama and Georgia.
Trump appeared on the field before the game, standing at midfield for the national anthem before moving to a suite.Trump was greeted with applause and some boos. The president came under fire last year for attacking NFL players who kneel during the national anthem to protest racial inequality, saying they should be fired.
Players for Alabama and Georgia were kept in the locker room as President Trump walked onto the field ahead of the national anthem at Monday’s national championship game. That didn’t stop Alabama running back Bo Scarbrough from voicing his objections to Trump, who has for months railed against NFL players protesting over racial inequality and police brutality during The Star-Spangled Banner.
“F— Trump!” the junior from Northport, Ala., yelled before taking the field at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
Video by the Sporting News shows an Alabama football player, identified as running back Bo Scarbrough, yelling, “F*** Trump!” as the team heads through the bowels of Mercedez-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. Bo Scarbrough, number nine on far left, identified as player who yelled, “F*** Trump!” If Scarbrough was the one who shouted “Fuck Trump,” he’d join numerous other people from the sports world who have also spoken out against Trump, although perhaps not in as blunt terms and not on what seemed like it could have been a hot mic blunder.
Trump’s status as a controversial figure within sports circles grew after he made comments at a rally in Alabama about players in the NFL who were kneeling during the national anthem:
“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now, out, he’s fired!’ You know, some owner is going to do that. He’s gonna say, ‘That guy disrespects our flag, he’s fired.’ And that owner, they don’t know it. They don’t know it. They’re friends of mine, many of them. They don’t know it. They’ll be the most popular person, for a week. They’ll be the most popular person in the country.”
The president stayed until half-time before leaving the stadium, while outside at a specially constructed stage, vocal Trump-critic Kendrick Lamar played a show for fans.Prior to the arrival of Trump the Atlanta branch of the NAACP urged people to wear white to the game and to bring white towels to wave when the president entered the stadium.Atlanta police stated earlier that they set up several designated areas for protesters and won’t interfere with demonstrations unless protesters break the law. Local, state and federal law enforcement authorities said last week that they’ve worked for months to develop security plans.One key entrance point to the stadium was shut down for 45 minutes because of the president’s arrival at an adjacent entrance forced fans to use a much smaller and narrower gate, a Mercedes Benz Stadium official confirmed to Yahoo Sports.
