Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump was rooting for Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl, but now that’s all changed because he likely found out that Manning supports Jeb Bush. Manning is a conservative who has donated thousands of dollars to Jeb Bush.
Jeb Bush proudly announced during the GOP debate that “Peyton Manning is supporting me, and I’m for Denver” after each candidate was asked who their pick was between the two battleground states.
Manning has reportedly donated the maximum amount allowed by law – $2,700, to Bush’s campaign. So naturally, the hotel magnate doesn’t like Manning anymore, because feelings:(
Here’s Trump last week explaining who he picks as his favorite for the Super Bowl.
“I very much have always liked Peyton Manning. He’s a very good guy. I know him. And he’s a very, very good guy,” Trump told CBS’s John Dickerson on “Face the Nation” last week.
“So I have to go with the person I know and I like them,” Trump continued. “I like the other team. I think the other team looks fantastic. Probably, they would be favored by something. But I’ll stick with Peyton because he’s a very good guy.”

A couple of Trump’s supporters weighed in on Trump’s devotion to Manning on Twitter saying, “Go Peyton!” and “I love Trump’s loyalty.”
We wonder what they’ll think now.
Here’s Trump now, just one week after supporting Manning because “he’s a very good guy.”
Addicting Info reports:
Both Trump and Bush’s other rival, Marco Rubio, appeared openly bitter about Manning during the debate. While Trump let his flip-flop speak for itself, Rubio noted that he “was rooting for Peyton Manning, but now I’m rooting for Carolina.”
We take it Donald Trump no longer feels that Manning is a “very good guy.” We expect to see Trump on Twitter stomping his little webbed feet over the man he claims to know who is throwing his support behind his rival. We expect a “Manning had blood coming out of his whatever” type remark any minute now.
To a surprise to no one ever, Ben Carson couldn’t’ make up his mind as to which team to pick.
