Washington Examiner – Ohio State defensive end Nick Bosa is afraid to show his support for President Trump as this month’s National Football League draft approaches.
Bosa, 21, told ESPN he purged his Twitter feed of certain tweets, citing concerns about being drafted by the San Francisco 49ers, the team on which Colin Kaepernick played as a quarterback and began kneeling during the national anthem — protests that have become a nationwide flash point.
“I had to,” Bosa said. “There is a chance I might end up in San Francisco.
In 2016, Bosa called Kaepernick a “clown” and posted photos and tweets in support of Trump during his tenure playing for Ohio State.
“He seemed to delight in posting political takes, including his support for President Trump, on Twitter and needling dissenters,” ESPN reported.
Seemed to delight? Just like how that should be OK and is OK when numerous NBA players endorse and “delight” in supporting President Obama?
Honestly, I don’t blame Nick for deleting the tweets at this point. It’s not going to be easy if he’s drafted into the bubble that is Silicon Valley, where you must be woke with your $7 cappuccino in hand.
I wish there was a world where Bosa could have a political leaning, and people would just worry about the fact that he’s the best prospect in football right now.
But, not in 2019 I guess.
