Former NFL defensive lineman and current NFL coach Jack Del Rio has had it *up to here* with the mob and he’s not taking it anymore.
Del Rio is a proud and very outspoken Trump supporter.
The former head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars and current defensive coordinator for the Washington Redskins made it crystal clear what side of the fight he’s on.
He told the liberals who attack him for supporting President to kiss his ass.

While some in the sports world and in particular the Trump-hating NFL believe that it’s only a matter of time before Del Rio will be forced to apologize – he is, after all, the defensive coordinate for the team that calls the Trump-hating nation’s capital its home.
But judging by Del Rio’s Twitter feed, they may actually be waiting for a long time. Maybe forever.
Included in his most recent tweets:
— A video featuring a black woman defending President Trump against allegations that he’s a racist bigot (and with some really good facts, too!).
— A tweet poking fun at socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York.
— A tweet criticizing a moralizing Sports Illustrated piece complaining that NFL owners will proceed with the 2020 season in spite of coronavirus because all they care about is money. Del Rio responds: “I think most players understand the risk of playing the game of football. The priority is not trying to be perfectly safe …..if so perhaps you should never drive your car.”
— He retweeted a CNBC clip featuring Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) who said we are learning that quarantining healthy people is not the best tactic against COVID-19.
— Del Rio retweeted a video of retired NFL quarterback Dan Orlovsky, a 12-year vet who just completed “The Murph Challenge,” a grueling workout in honor of Navy SEAL Lt. Michael P. Murphy. He received the Medal of Honor, posthumously, for combat actions in Afghanistan, where he was June 28, 2005. The workout: 1-mile run; 100 pull-ups; 200 sit-ups; 300 squats; 1-mile run — all in a 20lb weight vest.
Del Rio’s response is certainly braver and more forceful than recent responses from, say, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees, who offered days’ worth of mea culpas and apologies after daring to say he would always stand for the flag and did not agree with people who knelt during the anthem, regardless of the reason.
