Should Trump start inviting fans of the Champs of each sport instead of the players?

What if Trump decided to invite fans of the championship winning teams in the major sports instead of the players/teams who are declining the invitations?

Would this be a good PR move? Celebrate the championship with the passionate fans that are above politics instead of the players/teams that politically oppose him.

Being a fan of something isn't an accomplishment and doesn't deserve to be recognized. Dumb idea.

Great idea Yappi! Without the fans these guys would be playing at public parks or on cow fields and no would care what the score was.

Our president should spend ZERO time/money hosting a celebration of professional athletes and accomplishments.

Why? I don't see a problem with the president recognizing the accomplishments of athletes and others.

Good grief, it has nothing to do with recognition of athletic accomplishment. This is a basic propaganda technique called transfer, or association, in which positive qualities of a person, entity, object, or value (a championship team for example) are associated with something else (a politician) in order to make the second more acceptable.

I think it would be better for Trump to have White House Staffers pretend that they are fans of championship teams and he could script their comments to ensure they say things like. "The eagles are a championship team just like our beloved President" or "We may not have the amazing, almost god-like athletic skill of Mr Trump but he taught us how to win" They could have jerseys with Trumps name and #1 and a GIANT Trophy of Trump's bust in gold for the MVP.

Actually probably should rename the lombardi trophy the Trump Trophy.

There is no NFL without the Fans so why not Mix it up.

About 15 years ago I was at the same hotel as each of fan voted super fans of the NFL. I just had to go to the bar and meet these guys. Ended up setting next to the Philly guy who was a very down to earth and just having a blast following his team and parting around the country...great conversation about many things including some of the other more radical fans. The Raiders guy and chiefs guy who he has been with many times throughout the years but has never had anything close to a conversation as they are in a constant state of super fan, including the costume.

Trump hanging out with theses guys would be a hoot ...with no room for politics.

The goal right now is to push as much as possible governing down to the state level. Why should sporting events be any different? Let the home city or state honor their victors. Trump should just continue MAGA.

At this point I would shut it down till we got a new POTUS because this one is an ignorant a-hole. That's the problem.

That said I wouldn't care if he did invite fans who were also strong supporters of his, and they could all honor him to his little heart's content. Isn't that the point?

It becoming clearer with each passing day that ronnie and NEO just can't handle the truth. I hope they are reading Yappi from their safe room so that they don't pull a Kate Spade.

Where did Obama declaring martial law and electing himself for a 3rd term fall on the truth spectrum?

Read elsewhere. "Weird that Trump is attacking American players in American sports while celebrating Alex Ovechkin, a Russian, and ice hockey, a Canadian sport."

Just wait until Trump finds out the owner of the Capitals donated to both of Obama's campaigns and Hillary's 2016 campaign.

Remember when you posted an obviously photo-shopped picture and obviously fake story under the belief it was real?

I wonder if MD still think Trump is an spoiled little brat and egomaniac who doesn't care about the working class and who's followers are blinded by the wolf in sheep's clothing?

I'm more curious about whether or not MD still thinks Trump was sabotaging the election so that Hillary could win. He never seems to answer these questions though. Weird.

Yep, it was like a switch flipped. It's pretty sad how well trained the 2 major parties have their followers.
