With this Presidential election, many stars have come out on both sides of the campaign. Some have been very vocal and others have been more subtle about things. The latest star to come out and say he fully supports Trump is Chicago Bears quarterback, Jay Cutler. Lately throughout the years, Jay Cutler has gotten some bad press and fans around the NFL have not had the nicest things to say about him. He tends to show a more boyish side on the field, sometimes almost like a whining child on the playground, that does not get his way.
Cutler recently told the Chicago press that he fully supports Donald Trump and voted for him in this year's Presidential election. “I’m happy with the results,” Cutler said. “I’ve supported Trump for a while. I’m not going to dive into it. I know it’s a sensitive issue, but I like where it’s going.” A lot of stars are afraid to come out and say who they support as there could be negative repercussions, regardless of whom they are supporting. The United States has never been more divided after this election and either you are on one side, or you are on the other side. When a public figure comes out and picks a side, you don't know who they are affecting or making upset by taking that stance.
After Cutler came out and voiced his opinion this week, his teammates, for example guard Kyle Long, did not completely agree with their quarterback. Kyle took the Long view and thinks everyone just needs to get along. Long even referenced the locker room as an example of a place where many people from all walks of life come together, and they get a long and have one common goal. “With our system that’s in place, I think — and I’m hoping — that checks and balances and everything will work out the way it was drawn out to do so,” Long said. “And hopefully we can get together. That’s the big thing. Love one another. . . . Sports are a great thing in our society and definitely bring people together like nothing people have ever seen. You get an understanding and appreciation and respect for the things certain people have to go through for whatever reason, right or wrong. And it gives you a little bit of perspective. It makes you understand how little acts of kindness, little acts of just going out of your way to be nice to somebody can go a long way.”
