NFL Legend Jim Brown Called A Puppet For Supporting Trump 2020

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

Hall of Fame NFL running back Jim Brown is getting slammed by black liberals because of his support for President Trump.

Brown’s vocal support for President Trump was early following a meeting with President-elect Trump and continues with a 2020 endorsement.

However, Brown’s support for President Trump makes him a target of black liberals.

Breitbart reports:

NFL legend Jim Brown has endorsed President Donald Trump’s re-election in 2020, but he admits that the endorsement will make him unpopular among liberal black activists.

And…

“I should be criticizing Trump on every level because he does certain things that call for criticism,” Brown said, “but when I look at television I see all these announcers become experts, and they’re pointing the fingers, and they’re not doing a doggone thing but pointing their fingers, I find myself really pulling for the president.

“Now, that would make me very unpopular in the black community, very unpopular with a lot of Americans,” Brown continued, “but I think that there are certain good things that are coming out of this presidency because we’ve never seen anything like it.”

Brown was right about the backlash.

Responding to Brown’s interview, Carron J. Phillips, the Sports, Race & Social Issues columnist for The New York Daily News, praised then trashed Brown, calling him one of Trump’s “puppets,” in his column titled “Jim Brown, once a hero, maybe never should have been one.”

From The New York Daily News:

For many, Jim Brown is considered to be one of the greatest athletes of all time, and arguably the best football player to ever lace up a pair of cleats.

But to those in the African-American community, he’s been much more than that.

He’s an icon.

Brown is an icon in a number of ways other than from playing professional football.

Many years of social activism and working with youth through his Amer-I-Can Program deserves more than a few lines in Phillips’ column. Instead, Brown’s work and accomplishments to improve communities and lives were overshadowed by his support for President Trump.

After the 2016 Presidential Election, Brown was one of the puppets whom Trump used as a publicity stunt from the black community when he accepted an invitation to speak with him at Trump Tower.

Brown is “a problematic figure,” according to Phillips, based on Brown’s run-ins with the law outlined in the column that ends with “he’s fooled us all.”

They say you should never meet your heroes because they’re sure to disappoint you.

Brown has done that without an introduction.

Because all I had to do was pay attention to his actions and do some research to figure out he’s never been the man he’s fooled us all into believing he is.

Phillips Tweeted:

Expect more backlash from black liberals.

The timing of Phillips’ harsh criticism of Brown is tied to Brown supporting President Trump.

Looking at Brown’s career and life one thing is for sure – he is not a puppet.
