Late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel recently tried to make NFL quarterback Peyton Manning bash President Donald Trump when he appeared on his show. Manning, however, was not having any of it.
When Kimmel asked Manning why he agreed to play golf with Trump, he was clearly hoping that Manning would take the opportunity to throw the president under the bus. Instead, Manning defended his actions, saying that it would have been “almost un-American” to turn down the president’s offer.
“I heard Arnold Palmer say one time if the President of the United States ever asks you to play golf, you do it, it’s a no-brainer,” Manning said. “We had 30 golf carts behind us. Felt safe, but he was a great host. He loves sports. And we passed through a number of groups. He was very gracious. He took a picture with groups that we passed through.”
As the interview continued, Kimmel kept trying to bait Manning into insulting the president, going so far as to ask him if Trump cheated. Manning, however, refused to take the bait and defended Trump at every turn.
Kimmel’s constant attempts to make Manning bash Trump show how biased late night television hosts are against the president. They seem to think bashing Trump will increase their ratings, but what they don’t realize is that in doing so, they are alienating more than half of their audience.
