Once President Donald Trump began to comment on NFL players kneeling, the world of politics and sports truly began to intersect.
There were times when one couldn’t be discussed without mentioning the other. They came together again Monday, when Trump decided to attend the National Championship Game between Alabama and Georgia.
An Alabama player can be heard saying “F— Trump” in the tunnel prior to the game.

Though Sporting News identifies that player as Bo Scarbrough, SEC Country has watched the video numerous times and doesn’t feel comfortable naming the player who yelled.
Trump was on the field for the national anthem and also appeared in a suite during the game. He delayed fans attempting to enter Mercedes-Benz Stadium prior to the game because of heavy security and his limousine needing space to enter safely.
