A couple months after teeing it up on the golf course with President Trump, Brett Favre is now complimenting the president on the job he’s done since taking office. In an interview with the Washington Examiner, Favre pointed out that he think’s Trump is doing just fine.
“I think he’s done a good job for our country. Is he perfect? By no means is he perfect. Tell me someone who is perfect other than Jesus Christ, and I’ll call you a liar,” Favre said. He also stopped short of calling his quotes an actual endorsement ,“You can call it what you want,”
Favre, who was originally drafted by the Atlanta Falcons, spent the majority of his career with the Green Bay Packers but also had brief stops with the Jets and Vikings. The former three-time NFL MVP and President Trump played at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J., back on July 25, 2020.
In an interview in August with USA Today, a week after the golf outing with the president, Favre talked about his time with him. “I told (Trump), ‘I cannot imagine the stress you’re under with running the country day-to-day’… It’s damned if you do and damned if you don’t (advising people at the time on quarantining). Someone’s always going to get pissed. They’ll say open the economy, then the virus spreads and why’d you do that? I know from scrutiny of playing quarterback in the league, it’s damned if you do and damned if you don’t.”
Favre may be getting along with president well but don’t look for his former coach to be getting golf invites anytime soon. Former Green Bay Packers Coach Mike Holmgren announced he was endorsing Joe Biden back in early September, which prompted a Trump campaign spokesperson to respond by tweeting a picture of Trump and Favre from their golf outing.
