Retired quarterback, Peyton Manning, recently appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live to defend his decision to play golf with President Trump. Manning stated that it would have been “almost un-American” to turn down the President.
It is a depressing sign of the times that the former quarterback even had to defend his decision to play golf with the president. The offer alone should be considered a tremendous honor to any American.
Manning defended himself, saying, “I heard Arnold Palmer say one time if the President of the United States ever asks you to play golf, you do it, it’s a no-brainer.”
“We had 30 golf carts behind us. Felt safe, but he was a great host. He loves sports. And we passed through a number of groups. He was very gracious. He took a picture with groups that we passed through.” Manning explained.
During the interview, it is clear that Kimmel was attempting to bait Manning into insulting President Trump, but the football star refused.
Kimmel asked Manning if Trump cheated–an effort to insinuate that he is a dishonest person. However, President Trump would not need to cheat. He is an excellent golfer.
Kimmel’s constant attempts to bait Manning into insulting the President reveals the sick reliance the mainstream media has on President Trump. Discussing President Trump is an easy way to guarantee ratings, but insulting the President alienates half of the audience.
While this may help with ratings in the short term, the strategy will ultimately destroy the credibility of the mainstream media.
As President Trump continues to achieve his agenda, and as Americans continue to hear the President speak for himself, more people will come to support him. Soon, all Americans will understand the depths of the media’s dishonesty.
