Chael Sonnen Is A Donald Trump Supporter…Duh!!!
Fox Sports – Retired UFC middleweight Chael Sonnen is no stranger to making bold statements about anything from the fight game to politics, so it should come as no surprise that he’s thrown his support behind Donald Trump for president.
Sonnen keeps a close eye on politics, even vying for an office of his own once upon a time, and he says that Trump is the kind of candidate that really shakes up the status quo.
A non-traditional politician, Sonnen sees Trump as a visionary and a candidate who isn’t afraid to speak his mind, and that’s what scares many people when it comes to the veteran businessman running for president when it should really excite the electorate.
“I’m a huge supporter of Trump,” Sonnen told FOX Sports. “If Donald Trump’s campaign falls off the cliff tomorrow — and history says that it does. The frontrunner never maintains his lead. History says it falls off the cliff tomorrow and if it does, every pundit out there still loses. Because not one of them predicted he could make it this far. Not one of them predicted he was going to run or that he was going to lead in the polls, or that he could maintain a lead with the smallest fundraising and not accepting money from political action committees. They all lose and he wins.”
“Whether you agree with him or you don’t, it’s absolutely secondary to the fact that he has courage,” Sonnen said. “I listen to these pundits all the time breaking down Trump — ‘he’s brash and he’s bold and he’s successful’ and none of those are what it is. There’s one word to sum it up and it’s courage. He has courage. There’s a courage in running for president, there’s also a huge ego involved, there’s a few things that you need to be a political candidate.
“In his case, it’s one word and it’s courage. I find it compelling and go Trump.”
Loud, outspoken, brash and pompous. Those are all words used to describe Chael Sonnen at some point in his career so it is no surprise he supports Donald Trump. I would actually be angry if he didn’t because they are pretty much the same person. I do not care who people support when it comes to politics because nothing is going to change unless it starts at the local level. I don’t think Trump wanted to make a serious run when he got in the race. I believe he was doing it for the exposure and got hot on the polls…now he has to be in it for the long haul. Thankfully, this will not hurt Chael since Fox is pretty much the only republican media group. If he worked for NBC, he would be fired on the spot and thrown in jail. I will not knock Chael Sonnen for wanting to make America great again.
