NFL star Brett Favre: America was in ‘better place’ when Trump was in White House. ‘He cared about you’

Brett Favre, the Hall of Fame quarterback who made his name playing for the NFL’s Green Bay Packers, does not identify as “Republican, Democrat, or Independent” but made it clear this week that America was a “better place” when former President Donald Trump was in office.

Appearing on Jason Whitlock’s “Fearless” podcast, Favre said he didn’t agree with “everything Donald Trump does or says” and is no fan of the former president’s social media actions, but he is convinced that Trump is a better president than the current occupant at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, President Joe Biden.

“I think our country was in better shape with him…” he told Whitlock. “I think Donald was a non-political president, and I liked that about him. Was he perfect? Absolutely not. Am I perfect? Absolutely not. I’m flawed just like the rest of ’em. We’re all flawed. But I really felt like he had our country in a better place and really cared about our people in our country.

“Black, white, Hispanic, Asian — you name it. I think if you were an American citizen, he cared about you, first and foremost. I don’t know if our current president has the same mentality.”

The exchange on Trump begins just before the 1 hour- 7-minute mark below:

The Biden camp has tried to sell their guy as Mr. Unity, but the president can’t seem to break his habit of attacking 70 million or so Trump supporters.

Favre also ventured into the risky waters of transgenderism.

“To think that a young man who identifies as a girl, I don’t understand it — just hear me out — can go into a girl’s bathroom and use the restroom with girls, and for us to think that’s OK, I think is wrong. I’m sorry…” he said. “I just think some things we’re allowing in this country are beyond belief… Some of the thoughts and beliefs we’re seeing are crazy.”

Favre and Whitlock also discussed transgender policies in sports, with Favre seemingly agreeing with Whitlock’s notion that biological men should not be allowed to compete against biological women.

The former NFL great agreed with Whitlock that transgender women shouldn’t be allowed to compete against biological females in sporting events, but recognized the cost women athletes face in speaking out about it.

“I think maybe vast majority are afraid of what it’ll do to their career. And it’s not affecting them directly. Not yet, at least,” Favre added. “Who knows where this country’s going? It may affect them somewhere down the road. Is it too late? I don’t know. It’s scary.”
