Former Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio called out the NFL this week for getting political.
Marco Rubio wants to watch the NFL on Sundays and not be reminded about politics … but, right now, he says he’s upset he can’t — telling TMZ Sports, “I wish sports were just about sports.”
The league is embattled in national anthem policy issues (still) … and, while the Florida Senator says he’s all for players’ rights to protest — he wants it out of game days.
“Personally, I wish there was a place where we could go on Sundays in the Fall and kind of get away from politics for three hours,” he says.
“That’s how most people feel about it.”
