Sean Spicer, who served as former White House press secretary to the Trump administration, took to Twitter during the Super Bowl to tweet his support from the sidelines of the big game.
Spicer is cheering for the New England Patriots. The former White House staffer attended the big game in Minneapolis Sunday.
It’s no surprise that Spicer is a fan of the Patriots, as is his former boss, president Donald Trump. Trump has been a fan of the Patriots and even threw a party for game day at his West Palm Beach Trump International Golf Club in Florida for the big game between the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles.
The president is friends with Robert Kraft, the owner of the Patriots, along with Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.
On Sunday, Trump urged NFL players and America citizens not to kneel, implying that to participate in the protest of police brutality is disrespectful to American armed forces members, past and present.
The President said:
‘Though many of our nation’s service members are unable to be home with family and friends to enjoy this evening’s American tradition, they are always in our thoughts and prayers. We owe these heroes the greatest respect for defending our liberty and our American way of life. Their sacrifice is stated into each star and every stripe of our Star-Spangled Banner. We hold them in our hearts and thank them for our freedom as we proudly stand for the national anthem.’
Spicer famously exaggerated the size of Donald Trump’s presidential inauguration crowd to the point of boldly lying once during a White House press briefing. You can watch that moment in the video below, courtesy of CNN:
