Today is Superbowl Sunday and that can mean only one thing: Millions of Americans will gather in front of the TV to watch commercials. Oh, and football will be going on. Once again, the much-reviled New England Patriots are appearing in the big game and their team owner, Robert Kraft, appears to be making even nonfootball people LA Rams fans.
Kraft, notorious for his close relationship with President Trump over the years, praised President Donald Trump in an interview with Fox News’ morning show “Fox & Friends” on Friday. Kraft audaciously said that President Trump was “working very hard to serve the best interests of the country.”
Kraft, being a billionaire tycoon, must mean that the President is working very hard to serve the best interests of billionaires like himself. After all, Trump’s tax cuts benefit rich Americans like Kraft and not the middle-class Americans that make him richer by attending Patriots football games.
Curiously enough, Kraft spoke about middle-class families suffering during the protracted government shutdown and how they could use some respite like a football game.
A lot of people, and we’ve seen it with the government shutdown, people living paycheck to paycheck don’t have a lot of savings, Kraft said. And they’re looking to connect to something that allows them to escape from their daily travails.
Considering President Trump is the one responsible for creating the longest government shutdown in history and causing so many federal workers to work without pay, Kraft’s comments seem rather contradictory.
