Fans go wild as Trump slings footballs, flips burgers at Iowa-Iowa State football game

Former President Donald J. Trump traveled to the key battleground state of Iowa where he took in a college football rivalry game and showed off his arm by tossing around the pigskin during a stop at a local fraternity house.

The 2024 GOP frontrunner was among the White House hopefuls who attended the game on Saturday and he received the biggest reception, a sign to the crooked establishment that the Lawfare onslaught that has been brought down on him has done little to erode his popularity with the American people.

With the kickoff of the big Iowa-Iowa State game not taking place until mid-afternoon, Trump had plenty of time to mingle with the locals and stopped off at the Alpha Gamma Rho house where he served up burgers from a grill and tossed autographed footballs to the adoring crowd that had gathered in front of the red brick building.

“This is some turnout,” the America first leader told a reporter. “I guess the youth likes Trump.”

Trump also drew cheers as he helped out flipping burgers at a BBQ grill.

Following his stopover at the agricultural fraternity, the former president’s motorcade made the journey to Jack Trice Stadium in Ames for the grudge match between the visiting Iowa Hawkeyes and the hometown Iowa State Cyclones for the prized Cy-Hawk Trophy and bragging rights for the next year.

As was the case whenever Trump attended NCAA football games during his presidency, he received a rousing welcome from those who were in attendance for the contest, with chants of “Trump! Trump! Trump!” ringing out.

“It’s cool that he came to this game,” said one Hawkeye fan who is quoted by the Des Moines Register.

“I’m a financial guy, and when he was president there was a lot of positives and a lot of good things going on,” added Brad Lewis, a resident of Dubuque. “And so, to me, that’s important. People love him or hate him, but you know, he’s done a lot of good things for the country.”

Also at the game was Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, Trump’s top GOP rival who is counting on a strong showing in next year’s Iowa caucuses which kick off the GOP primaries. The Sunshine State Republican joined his counterpart, Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds in the stands.

“We’re having a good time,” he told reporters, according to the Associated Press. “It’s quite an atmosphere, probably a little bit more civilized than the Florida-Georgia game.”

The Hawkeyes took the Cy-Hawk Trophy with a 20-13 victory over their fierce rivals, dominating the contest and holding off a late Iowa State rally to notch the win.
