Donald Trump Praises Missouri's Football Teams In Bizarre Speech

In the past twelve months, the state of Missouri has watched its NFL team depart for Los Angeles while its lone Division I-FBS team nearly went on strike due to racism on campus; they went 5-7 on the season. The two FCS programs? Missouri State’s football team went 1-10, while SEMO went 4-7. Donald Trump collectively praised these teams while declaring “Missouri: good football teams! Came from nowhere!”

Trump then threatened to attend a football game—we have to assume he meant in Columbia—if Missouri’s citizens vote for him.

What.
