Donald Trump Had Time to Call Kirk Cousins to Tell Him Good Game & Invite Him to MAGA Rally; Here is How Cousins Responded (Video)

I shouldn’t have laughed at the tweet starting this is why Stefon Diggs isn’t getting targets, but I did anyway.

Cousins has a chummy relationship with Trump and has golfed with him before, so it isn’t surprising the Trump tried to use him for political gain.

A spokesperson for the team confirmed that Trump phoned Cousins to “briefly congratulate him and the Vikings on the win in New York.” The call came following Sunday’s 28-10 victory against the New York Giants.

Trump is planning a visit to Minnesota later this week, for a “Keep America Great” rally scheduled to take place at Target Center in Minneapolis Thursday evening.

According to a source, the two briefly discussed the rally, but Cousins will not be attending.

In 2017, Cousins disclosed he had played a round of golf with Trump, which happened as the NFL was embroiled in controversy over players kneeling during the National Anthem, a display of protest Trump spoke out against. Cousins told USA Today, “I’ve tried to listen and learn, and at the same time support my country that I love.”
