Finally, someone in the sports world who expresses support for our President.
LSU head coach Ed Orgeron has openly stated that he thinks President Trump is doing a fantastic job.
Let’s hope that coach Orgeron doesn’t get canceled by the cancel culture, I’m sure the radical left is digging deep into archives somewhere to try to find some dirt on coach O.

Fox News reported the conversation of Coach Orgeron and President Trump:
Earlier in the week, Trump gave his support for the players’ movement expressing their desire to play football this season amid the coronavirus outbreak that is still plaguing the U.S. Lawrence is among the leaders of the #WeWantToPlay movement calling on conferences and colleges to not cancel their seasons.
Trump said Orgeron “feels his players just want to be out there.” Oregon expressed the same sentiment Tuesday in an interview on Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom.”
The president explained in an interview with Outkick’s Clay Travis on Tuesday that college football’s cancelation would be a “tragic mistake”
Trump, citing a doctor, said because the college football athletes are in good shape, they would have less of a chance to contract the coronavirus and he didn’t expect them to have any issues with it.

"Makes me proud," Orgeron said of Trump's comments. "I love President Trump. He treated us very well when we went to the White House. And I think he's doing a fantastic job."

Of course, after you say anything positive about Trump you will receive some backlash, see what a former player said about coach O.
The Spun published an article of a former LSU player talking down on Coach O:
LSU football coach Ed Orgeron is by all accounts well respected by his current and former players, but that doesn’t mean one won’t call him out for something he did.
In the case of former Tigers star K’Lavon Chaisson, Orgeron’s support for President Donald Trump was enough to merit a response. In an appearance on FOX News this morning to discuss the state of college football, Orgeron was asked about President Trump mentioning him in a radio interview today.
“It makes me proud,” Orgeron said. “I love President Trump. He treated us very well when we went to the White House. I think he’s doing a fantastic job.”
Chaisson, who is heading into his first NFL season as a member of the Jacksonville Jaguars, criticized his old coach’s assessment of the President, saying that while Orgeron is a “great man”, he is “blind to everything else.”
“Coach O is a great man and I know he didn’t mean any harm by this but he is the definition of only know and care about football,” Chaisson wrote. “He is blind to everything else. Fantastic job??”
In the days we are living in if you’re a celebrity or well-known watch out because any compliment of our President will land you hate from the radical left.
Do you agree with President Trump and Coach O about College Football shouldn’t be canceled?
