A top seeded college lacrosse team has decided to do something that few youngsters would dare. They were given a choice of any song to make an entrance to out into the field, and what they chose to do was play one of President Trump’s speeches. As they entered the field, holding American flags, it was a proud moment for the country.
However, the liberal media has of course condemned them, and other liberal college students have taken to social media to express their outrage at this show of patriotism.
‘In all of our cities and all of our towns, I make this promise. We will make America strong again. We will make America proud again. We will make America safe again. And we will make America great again,’ the audio of Trump blasted across the field as the players ran on.
The Daily Mail has more:
The move has sparked outrage among fellow students at the university, but others have praised the team – including members of Trump’s own family.
Donald Trump’s daughter-in-law Lara – who is married to the president’s son Eric Trump – thanked the team on her Instagram page where she posted the video of the team running onto the field.
‘Thank you to the #AdelphiUniversity Men’s Lacrosse Team for choosing to enter the field with the inspirational words of your President of the United States! ‘she wrote along with the hashtags; ‘#Pumped #Patriotic #SnowflakeFreeZone.’
A school spokesman said the speech does not violate school policy.
However, many people online have questioned a sports team would use a political speech at all – let alone by someone as divisive as Donald Trump – after footage of the team’s entrance was tweeted on Wednesday.
Ashley Worthey, an alumni who works at the university, said the team’s decision had left her ‘confused.’ She said that while the private college was generally ‘a good campus’, that there was an issue with ‘acceptance’ from ‘certain people on the campus.’
‘I’m sorry. I don’t get what lacrosse has to do with his stupid speeches,’ Marylynn Torrëy wrote on Facebook. ‘ So stupid. Bunch of rich entitled kids at that school.’
‘Shame on you Adelphi, following an admitted sexual predator, liar bigot and world class narcissist,’ Arthur Coccaro wrote. ‘Martin Luther King’s dream speech, maybe, but I just hope some of the players on the team are not ok with this stupidity.’
Another Facebook user joked that perhaps Adelphi had chosen the speech as a tactic ‘to make the team sick and vomit listening to his c**p?’
