Instead of the political turmoil in our nation which I wirite about every day, I decided to bring a story to you, gentle readers, that is aimed to make you feel good.
Most of you, anyway.

Members of the University of Alabama football team prayed with President Donald Trump on Tuesday afternoon as they made their ceremonial visit to the White House as winners of the 2017–2018 College Football Playoff National Championship.
During the Trump presidency, visits by championship sports teams to the White House have seemingly been marred by the fact that some high-profile athletes haven’t made the trip to the executive mansion to protest the president.
However, the Crimson Tide’s visit to the White House on Tuesday to celebrate their 26-23 Jan. 8 victory over the University of Georgia could likely be remembered for the fact that a handful of players huddled around the president to pray for him and the administration.
According to WBRC sports reporter Christina Chambers, the prayer was the idea of Alabama punter JK Scott. Chambers reports that when the punter went to shake Trump’s hand following his ceremony, he asked the president if he could pray with him.
After that, other players gathered around to join in the prayer.
While visiting the White House has become a seemingly controversial act in the eyes of some, head coach Nick Saban reportedly addressed the White House invite with his players prior to the visit. The Crimson Tide visited the White House four times during the Obama presidency.
“Coach Saban addressed it and just said, ‘Hey, we’re doing this regardless of your political thoughts. We’re going, just to celebrate this team. It’s an honor. And just to be able to say that you’ve gone to the White House is something that you can cherish forever,'” offensive lineman Ross Pierschbacher said, according to Al.com. “So that was basically the extent of that.”
Running back Damien Harris agreed that visiting the White House is an honor.
“It’s something that comes with being national champions, so we’re definitely thankful for the opportunity,” he told Al.com. “There’s a lot of young guys that haven’t been able to make that trip yet. We’re glad we’ve got guys that can go for the first time and experience it the way that we did when we were young. Obviously, all the older guys have been there, and we’re looking forward to going back again.”
With all of the sports teams filled with prima donnas who belief themselves to be some sort of political vanguard, who have refused to meet with President Trump, it is nice to see that there was a team of champions who accepted his invitation.
And, not only that, they asked if they could pray for him!
That thunder-clap you just heard was the sound of Modern Liberals’ sphincters slamming shut from coast to coast.
What must they be thinking…
[Why, how dare they!
Didn’t these guys know that they are not supposed to be meeting with Trump in the White House?
They are supposed to be cuddled up in their safe spaces, with their warm milk and their binkies.
Instead, these young men, their coaching staff, and their university considered it an honor to be invited to meet with the Leader of the Free World.
And then, oh, the horror, they actually asked President Donald J. Trump if they could pray for him!
Didn’t these guys get the memo?
You know, the memo which says that we are no longer a Christian Nation and that traditional American values such as honor and respect are passe.
Why, if college athletes and students keep acting like this in public, one might get the impression that these young people were raised with those values by all those hicks between the coasts who turned American into a sea of red on the Electoral Map of Election Night 2016.
But, that couldn’t be.
All the Liberal Pundits, professional and self-proclaimed Social Media Ones, said that nobody voted for Trump.
And that now, after being politically attacked for 15 months after his inauguration, Americans do not care for him any more.
Why, what’s the matter with these Alabama Football Players?
Don’t they know that they have destroyed all of the Liberal Propaganda being disseminated by the Main Stream and Social Media with one simple act of concern and the honoring of an American President?
Why, the next thing you will tell me is that America is still an overwhelmingly majority Christian Nation and that Donald J. Trump is still its President.]
How about that.
Until He Comes,
