President Donald Trump on Monday night traveled to Atlanta to watch the championship college football game between Alabama and Georgia. As Alabama running back Bo Scarbrough took the field, he let his classless hate for the president be known by yelling “f*** Trump!” It wasn’t long after this came back to bite him in a huge way.

Freedom Daily reported that Scarbrough’s comment backfired for his team when the next day he made all the headlines. Rather the team being admired in the press for winning the came, everyone was focused on what Scarbrough had to say, and internet users made their effort to let him know that he went too far.
One comment read, “When this team visits the President he should not be allowed to go to visit the President. I feel that both those guys number 9 and 45 should stay home with their mamas,” and another angry fan wrote, “How dare you…..you are a disgrace to the college football league, but you will fit in well in the NFL. I hope one day this will come and bite you in the butt.”
Another comment read,“It’s players like him that cause all the racial problems in our country. A disgrace to Dr. King’s dream.”
This scandal made Alabama lost way more fans than they gained on Monday due to Scarbrough’s antics. The backlash got to be so bad that Scarbrough tries to lie and claimed on Twitter that what he really said was “F— Georgia.”

Nevertheless, the video makes it clear that he did indeed say “f*** Trump.” Nice try, Bo, but we have you on camera disrespecting the sitting president of the United States!
Although the mainstream media tried to focus on this one negative reaction to Trump at the game, most of the people showed their love for the president be known by cheering him as soon as he entered the stadium.
Right Wing News confirmed that when President Trump confidently marched out onto the field with the Georgia ROTC flanking him, he was welcomed with tens of thousands of cheers from the sports fans in the stadium. Trump then stood for the national anthem as the camera followed by a military installation where the soldiers also stood at attention as the crowd blasted in approval.
