Trump supporter Mitch Albom

Elderly sports writer Mitch Albom lashed out at football players who don't want to go to the White House to meet Donald Trump.

Albom is also the author of Tuesdays with Morrie and some semi-religious stuff.

The aging millionaire wrote:
But these days, few people just go about their business. Not when a statement can be made. So even though a dated invitation has yet to be made, some Patriots felt compelled to tell their fans how repugnant the idea was to them
It is surely their right to do so as Americans
It is also rude.
No one is asking them to endorse a candidate. And taking a photo with your nation’s elected leader doesn’t mean you surrender your right to disagree with every single thing he does. That’s the beauty of America. In fact, the visit may give you a rare chance to express your views to the leader himself.
He writes in the short simple sentences favored by simple-minded rubes who go for that kind of crap.

Well, I for one am glad that he wrote this.

If an elderly relative ever tries to make ME watch Tuesdays with Morrie or The Five People You Meet in Heaven, I'll tell them the books were written by a dirty stinkin' Trump supporter.
