Stereotypes apart, pop-nation followers typically aren’t sometimes related to essentially the most left-leaning of political stances—that is, in spite of everything, an trade and demographic that after excommunicated the Dixie Chicks after they questioned that entire Iraq Battle factor. It ought to come as no shock, then, that chaos reigned supreme this week when an Instagram publish appeared to insinuate that essentially the most commercially profitable nation musician of all time, Garth Brooks, was a supporter of presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, the Jewish democratic socialist who’d relatively heal our dying planet than perpetuate infinite wars.

This publish is, in fact, a shoutout to Barry Sanders, the previous Detroit Lions working again and NFL Corridor of Famer, and positively not an endorsement of Sanders—Democratic main frontrunner and, to our information, nonetheless not a member of the NFL Corridor of Fame. You see, Garth wore the shirt at a live performance cease in Detroit this week as a pleasant gesture to the athlete, somebody Brooks described thusly:

“I used to be fortunate sufficient to be an athlete and to put on the identical uniform as this man wore in school. I used to be fortunate to go to highschool with him. You guys received the best participant in NFL historical past in my view on this jersey. I like this man.”

After all, that didn’t cease true American patriots from melting the hell down, swearing off the pop nation famous person forevermore.

Okay, look, we’ll give them the briefest good thing about the doubt right here. The previous Lion’s jersey quantity was 20, in spite of everything, so seeing Brooks in a shirt emblazoned with “SANDERS 20″ would possibly confuse even the most effective of us. However that is the internet, the place nobody is ever fallacious about something.

Properly finished, y’all. In the meantime, we’re close to constructive Chris Gaines continues to be a diehard member of the Yang Gang.
