Super Bowl Viewers Hilariously Trolled Trump With Multiple Versions Of The Same Joke

The Los Angeles Rams beat the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday evening to win Super Bowl LVI by a score of 23-20.

But did the Rams actually win? That was the question many Twitter users facetiously asked after the game ended.

Using failed, one-term former President Donald Trump’s fuzzy logic, people across the country began zinging the ex-president with multiple variations of the same joke about how it’s not really a loss if you can get former Vice President Mike Pence to say otherwise. Take a look:

According To Franklin Graham, Jesus Wants The Bengals To Win The Super Bowl

On Sunday, February 13, Super Bowl LVI will be held at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles, pitting the Cincinnati Bengals against the Los Angeles Rams, who will be playing at their home stadium.

According to Actionnetwork.com, the Rams are an early four-point favorite to take home the Vince Lombardi Trophy, and based on the NFL playoffs so far, it promises to be a very entertaining and close game.

But according to evangelist Franklin Graham, all Christians (and by extension God and Jesus, too) will be rooting for the Bengals because their rookie placekicker is a devout man.

On Facebook, Graham laid out why he wants to see the Bengals emerge victorious:

A rookie is sending the Cincinnati Bengals to their first Super Bowl in 33 years! The Bengals were down 21-3 in the first half of last night’s game against The Kansas City Chiefs, but they came back for the win with a field goal in overtime! The rookie who made the game-winning kick is Evan McPherson. He’s just 22 years old, but Evan is the first kicker in NFL history to hold the record for having the most field goals without a miss in a single postseason. That’s impressive.

Yes, those stats are indeed impressive, but as Graham explains, he doesn’t like Evan McPherson because he’s a good kicker, but because he wears a shirt that proclaims his faith:

But what impresses me most about Evan is that he’s not ashamed of his faith. He’s a follower of Jesus Christ, and he wore a shirt that said “God is good” to the press conference after the game. On Instagram, Evan shared John 3:16 with the caption, “To God be the glory!!” He isn’t afraid to use his platform on social media to point to God and His Word.

Graham ends his post with this saccharine proclamation of who he wants to emerge as the winner on Feb. 13:

The Super Bowl is less than two weeks away, and the Bengals are being called one of the biggest underdogs to ever make it to the game. I know one kicker I’m going to be rooting for—how about you?

In other words, Graham is picking Cincinnati, but is he betting on the game? Probably not.

The larger question, however, is this: If the Rams win, does that mean Graham’s God isn’t real? Or does it merely suggest that the preacher isn’t exactly on good terms with the man upstairs? Either way, it’s putting God in a difficult spot.

Here’s a proposition for Mr. Graham: If the Bengals win, pledge to give $5 million of your money (from your personal account) to orphanages across the United States.

If, on the other hand, the Rams prevail, Franklin, fork over $10 million to Planned Parenthood.

Hey, if you have so much faith, shouldn’t you be willing to put your money where your mouth is?

This One Photo Proves The Rank Hypocrisy Of Those Opposed To Anthem Protests

President Trump and his moronic minions just love to say that athletes who kneel during the playing of the national anthem are somehow disrespecting the American flag and the country. That’s total BS, but Trump and his fawning acolytes cannot stand to see black men bringing attention to the issue of racial inequality in the United States.

As it turns out, those who complain so loudly about dissing the flag have their own special ways of proving that the flag is nothing but a piece of cloth.

Consider the case of this man who showed up for a game Sunday between the New England Patriots and New York Jets. He’s wearing a T-shirt which reads:

“I STAND FOR THE NATIONAL ANTHEM.”

But take a look at the colorful “blanket” he’s resting his ass on. It’s the freaking American flag! How’s that for bringing honor to the stars and stripes?


The guy who took the photo of this great American asshole reports:

“Basically, me and my friend were walking around the stadium sometime during the 3rd quarter. There is a huge tv screen by the food carts right inside the stadium where people gather to watch. We went over there to check it out and we saw him spread the flag out and sit down.

“I thought it was too ironic so I snagged a picture. He sat on it for a few minutes before leaving.”

Yeah, nothing says pride and respect for all things American quite like plopping your butt down on an American flag and catching a football game. Didn’t Trump call for a protest of all NFL games? Then why is this lazy sack of crap showing up and helping to support the league by buying a ticket?

It’s enough to make you question the legitimacy of the clown in the Oval Office, who probably gets even more upset if someone doesn’t stand for the Russian flag.

Former NFL Coach Mike Ditka On Anthem Protests: There’s Been ‘No Oppression In The Last 100 Years’

Former Chicago Bears head coach and player Mike Ditka simply cannot understand why some NFL players feel a need to kneel during the national anthem as a way to bring attention to discrimination against African-Americans. After all, Ditka maintains, there hasn’t been any oppression in the United States for the past 100 years.

Ditka was interviewed by Jim Gray on Westwood One, and the vocal Trump supporter sounded like he’d just gotten his talking points and marching orders from the White House:

“I think that you have to be color blind in this country. Have you got to look at a person for what he is and what he stands for. And how he produces. All of a sudden it’s become a big dealing now about oppression. There has been no oppression in the last 100 years that I know of.”

No oppression in the last 100 years? Really, Mike? How about these facts that you conveniently overlooked:

  • In the South, an estimated two or three blacks were lynched each week in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In Mississippi alone, 500 blacks were lynched from the 1800s to 1955. Nationwide, the figure climbed to nearly 5,000.
  • Until 1965, blacks could not vote in most Southern states.
  • There was once a time in this country when African-Americans were forced to use separate bathroom facilities, go to woefully inadequate public schools, and ride at the back of buses.


The 77-year-old Ditka then added:

“I don’t care who you are, how much money you make. If you don’t respect our country, then you shouldn’t be in this country playing football. Go to another country and play football. If you can’t respect the flag and the country, then you don’t respect what this is all about. So I would say adios.”

Hey, Mike, are you aware that the flag you worship so much is nothing but a piece of cloth? It seems the flag and the anthem are being made into idols for us to all worship, which is complete bullshit. The Founding Fathers didn’t mention tests of loyalty or patriotism. And the fact that this entire matter has been stirred up by a “president” who may well have committed treason with Russia is even more galling.

Flags and national anthems are nothing but symbols. And as such, they can be ignored or rejected as each of us chooses.

Conway Gets Snippy When Fox Host Asks If Pence’s NFL Walkout Was A ‘Political Stunt’ (VIDEO)

The Trump administration’s continued hardline position regarding protests by NFL players during the national anthem is once again bringing controversy to the White House, this time due to the actions of Vice President Pence.

On Sunday, Pence attended a game between the Indianapolis Colts and San Francisco 49ers at Lucas Oil Stadium. When some players knelt during the playing of the anthem, Pence walked out, part of a pre-planned stunt which cost taxpayers almost $250,000 for transportation and security.

Senior adviser Kellyanne Conway was asked about Pence’s actions during an appearance on Fox & Friends Monday morning. She said it was “outrageous, egregious, and offensive” to call Pence’s walkout a “political stunt.”

Co-host Steve Doocy seemed unwilling to accept Conway’s explanation at face value, asking:

“When did the vice president and the president talk about doing this?

Conway:

“Well, they talk every day.”

Doocy then followed up by inquiring:

“So, they worked this out last week?”

Clearly upset by the question, Conway snapped:

“Hold on. They talk every day. And they certainly have talked about this issue.”


As well they should. Let them talk about it, debate it, even hold hands, pray, and sing a hymn. But when the actions of this holier-than-thou, robotic Vice President wind up costing the taxpayers a quarter of a million dollars so he can his boss can make some moronic “statement” on a matter they understand next to nothing about, don’t be surprised if more than few Americans start to wonder why their tax dollars are being used to amuse the head of state and somehow help him feel vindicated.

Trump and Pence have no regard for issues which affect the marginalized in this country: the poor, African-Americans, Latinos, women, the LGBT community. But when they start taking money out of our pockets to indulge their supercilious whims, we have every right to tell them we disagree and want them to cease and desist.
