President Donald Trump received official confirmation from another celebrity – this time from former NFL star quarterback Jay Cutler. And like many reactions to celebrity endorsements, Cutler returned a long open letter supporting another four years of Trump setting the Internet on fire.
However, not many people were surprised by Cutler’s praise for the president – some even expected it.
“It makes sense for Jay Cutler to support Trump because he is also a mediocre white man who has failed at what he is supposedly good at,” wrote one Twitter user in response to Cutler’s statement.

“Jay Cutler was known for always throwing to the wrong team in the decisive phase, so this makes sense,” a tweet said.

Considering that Cutler’s endorsement came only five days before the election – after Americans had already cast more than 78 million early votes – some people considered the timing of Cutler’s endorsement of Trump typical of Cutler’s behavior.
“Throwing an interception so late in the game is extremely distinctive for Jay Cutler,” wrote one Twitter user.

The 37-year-old was referred to by The Daily Show as the “Scott Baio of football”, but there were also some people who linked the 37-year-old’s endorsement to his separation from his estranged wife Kristin Cavallari.

Meanwhile, more Cutler fans left messages thanking him for his “bravery” in sharing his feelings about Trump in his comment section.
Cutler published a screenshot of Nicklaus’ endorsement of Trump on his Instagram account on Wednesday, titled “Never a doubt”.
In Nicklaus’ letter, the 80-year-old praised Trump for the way he “kept his promises” and the “President’s determination to do the right thing for the United States.
“In my opinion, he was more diverse than any president I have ever seen and tried to help people from all walks of life on an equal footing,” the letter said. “Donald Trump’s policies will bring the American dream to many families across the country who are still trying to make it a reality”.
