Critics Condemned Brett Favre For His Endorsement
Several critics of both Trump and Favre condemned the former quarterback for the endorsement. One user brought past controversies involving Favre. For his instance, they mentioned $1 million Favre received in Mississippi welfare money for speeches he didn’t make. Favre agreed to repay the misallocated money.

You’re a very wealthy man. You’re also VERY out of touch. Voting for Trump requires a heavy dose of denial & cognitive dissonance. Wake the hell up, Brett. Look around you.
