Nick Bosa Donald Trump

Liberals Melt Down After Kaepernick-Bashing Pro-Trump Rookie Leads 49ers to Super Bowl


San Francisco 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa will on Sunday cap a dominant rookie season with a Super Bowl appearance, and some liberals are upset. 

After notching a dozen sacks and a Pro Bowl appearance, Bosa on Saturday won the AP Defensive Rookie of the Year award. Fans also named him the the Pepsi rookie of the year on Thursday echoing the Pro Football Writers of America earlier in January.

However, liberal commentators and journalists are still upset Bosa’s politically incorrect Twitter activity during his college years at Ohio State University. The offending tweets include references to President Donald Trump one of the “Goats,” or greatest of all time, and to national anthem-protester Colin Kaepernick a “Clown.”

Ahead of the 2019 NFL draft in April, Bosa, a 22-year-old Florida native, deleted his political tweets and toned down his public commentary.

“I had to,” he told ESPN days before the combine. “There is a chance I might end up in San Francisco.”

Still, critics were further triggered when in April President Donald Trump congratulated Bosa on indeed being drafted by the 49ers.

Evan Sowards, a 49ers Hub writer, summed up liberal sentiment, tweeting in May: “So is Nick Bosa just internet racist, or full blown MAGA racist?”

Nick Bosa and the Donald Trump Super Bowl?

Bosa’s impending appearance in Super Bowl LIV, which pits the 49ers against the Kansas City Chiefs, brought a new wave of outrage from the left.

The Atlantic staff writer Jemele Hill, a prominent Kaepernick ally, on Sunday slammed Bosa for following a private Instagram account that joked about Kobe Bryant’s death.

“Nick Bosa continues to show exactly who he is,” she said.

Others repeated suggestions that Bosa is an irredeemable racist, despite evidence to the contrary.

However, conservative defended Bosa and bashed his critics.

In a Twitter exchange with Hill, Blogger Stephen Miller said: “Imagine caring this much who Nick Bosa follows on social media. Imagine getting paid for this.”

He went on to accuse “media vampires” like Hill of “trying to ruin” the pro-Trump standout over his old tweets.

Meanwhile, a number of Bosa fans posted memes joking he was extra determined to beat the Chiefs so he could go to the White House to meet Trump.
