How Pro Trump sports stars reacted to the election results.

0

Like the majority of Americans, sports stars were heavily involved in one of the most dramatic election campaigns in recent times.

While LeBron James, Stephen Curry, Magic Johnson and Steve Kerr actively fought for the Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, former multiple World Series winners Curt Schilling and Aubrey Huff were among those who supported President Donald Trump.

The divide was reflected in the approach of both groups during a turbulent election night, when the pro-trump athletes in Biden’s camp seemed to be far more vocal than the sports stars.

Schilling praised the voters who went to the polls on election day, implying that the majority of personal voters were Republicans rather than Democrats, and fired shots at the pollsters, whose predictions once again seemed to be far off when the vote count began.

Thank you, Lord, for your voters on election day!

The former Boston Red Sox star, who four years ago expressed interest in running for president in 2024, hinted that pollsters were paid in the last two elections to deliberately paint a misleading picture of voters’ intentions before election day.

Meanwhile, Huff defended Trump’s premature claim that he won the election before all the votes were counted and that a “major fraud” had been committed.

“The talk of Trump was not divisive,” twittered Huff, who has long been an outspoken Trump supporter.

“He’s been fighting fake messages for four years, and this was no different. He won this thing with ease, and they’re still hesitant to figure out how to steal that election.

The trump speech was not divisive. He has been fighting against fake news for 4 years, and this was no different. He has won this thing with flying colors, and they are still hesitating to figure out how to steal this election.

During a speech he delivered at the White House in the early morning hours of November 4, Trump declared, without presenting any evidence to support his claim, that fraud was being committed at the expense of voters.

Some of Trump’s most ardent supporters and even Vice President Mike Pence immediately distanced himself from this statement.

Meanwhile, former NFL player Jack Brewer took out one of the president’s favorite choruses and cracked down on the mainstream media, which he called an “enemy of the people.

The goal of Brewer’s wrath was somewhat surprising, however. He knocked down FOX News after the pro-Republican network called Arizona for Democratic President Joe Biden, suggesting that America was in a “spiritual war”.

Does @foxnews really begin to look like the enemy of the people? ð¤-ð¿¿ââï¸ð¤-ð¿ââï¸

The @foxnews panel literally behaves as if it were normal that 5 states simply stop counting votes on election night for the presidency of the United States. We are in a spiritual war!

Following the thoughts of Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani and Florida Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), Brewer also attacked the reluctance of broadcasters to call Florida in favor of Trump. Rubio suspected that this had been deliberately staged to deny the Republican incumbent an important swing state early until the end of the elections in Arizona and Nevada.

The Associated Press stated that Trump had won Florida and its 29 electoral votes at 12:35 ET, while the Arizona News Agency called at 2:51 ET in favor of Biden and Nevada was still in limbo at the time of writing. The state elections department announced that no further results will be announced until Thursday at 12:00 ET.

In the seven-time Pro Bowl selection, Nick Mangold also had problems with the process of declaring the states won.

The former New York Jets star tweeted a screenshot showing that his ballot had not been received about 15 minutes after AP called New Jersey at 8:00 pm ET.

In response to a subsequent tweet, Mangold confirmed that although New Jersey was an easy state to call, he felt his ballot should at least have been received.

Meanwhile, long-time Trump friend and former Heisman Trophy winner Herschel Walker criticized the Kong
