All parts are amazing. The sanders is fairly basic. The fact it says 20 is amazing. Oh and all the blue.

Whoever made the jersey - can see the future. And trolled the hell out of people.

I confess I don't get it at all. 

No problem with that.  It requires knowledge of older football players and their teams.

There is a famous football player. His name is Barry Sanders.  He played for the detroit lions.

His jersey number (The number on the back) was 20.

Garth brooks (famous country guy) was in detroit and wearing a barry Sanders Jersey. Various Trump fans saw the "blue" the "Sanders" and the "20" and thought it was a political reference to Berry Sanders running in 2020.

When it was simply just a detroit jersey of Barry Sanders.



  • Deadliest mass shooting by an individual in US history (10/01/2017)
  • Deadliest high school shooting in US history (02/14/2018)
  • Deadliest massacre of Jews in US history (10/27/2018)
  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

Alright, so I DID get it, I just couldn't confirm it. I know Bernie Sanders is running in 2020, I know Dems are blue, and I know that's a football jersey. I also know Garth Brooks is a country dude (And almost certainly a republican, since that's sort of how it goes, but there are exceptions). I just didn't KNOW there was a dude named Barry Sanders that was #20. I sort of assumed based on people's responses, but I couldn't find out if there was becuase I don't know where to look. I did google it but apparently had no idea what terms to use becuase it came up with nothing. 



I got it all, baby!

Yeah I get you. I barely got it because I have an old memory of Barry Sanders playing at one point.  Can't imagine the amount of hate he got, poor guy.

Any anti-war candidate? Trump was the biggest anti-war candidate during his campaign in 2016. Promised to undo all the mess Bush and Obama did in the middle east by simply bring troops back home. But now he did a 180 and increased troops in middle east.

His mind is like a diaper; always getting changed.



Wtf, Georgia.

We may have reached peak sycophantism.  A black, former NFL player just called Donald Trump America's 'first black president'.

There is a clip of the moment in the link below.

Here is the full video of the event the statement came from.  You can find the relevant moment at the 57:00 mark.



Massimus - "Trump already has democrat support."

He's a man who has literally made a name for himself by the tenuous link to reality he has and his hilarious propensity to lie about everything...how could anyone actually believe him when he says he wants to end the war? 

Just woke up with this great news. US and Taliban made a peace deal to end the 18+ year old Afghan war.

I'm starting to believe him as much as Pachter - meaning that when Trumps says anything, the opposite must be true.

Probably my single favourite answer in the whole thread. Maybe the whole website.

FF7 vs Oot is where the focus should be!
