After Pittsburgh Steelers Coach Mike Tomlin announced quarterback Devlin Hodges would be starting the next game for the team, internet users rushed to their keyboards to condemn the backup QB for supporting Donald Trump.
In his weekly press conference, Coach Tomlin announced that Devlin Hodges would start at quarterback versus the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.

Two more pro-Trump tweets from Hodges ask why Americans can’t at least wish the president the best?

Coach Tomlin, who is an avid Democrat, hosted a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton in 2016.
Imagine if he acted like these leftists and refused to cooperate with his player over a difference in political viewpoints.

Ben Roethlisberger was accused of rape (twice). Mason Rudolph started a fight that led to the suspension and fine of a handful of players. Devlin Hodges supports Trump. I don’t think they could do any worse lmfao
