Tiger Woods was recently asked about President Trump. He responded by stating he will always respect the office, no matter who holds it. Apparently, that was too much praise for one ESPN host.
According to the New York Post:
ESPN’s Max Kellerman said Monday on “First Take” that Tiger Woods’ response to questions about President Trump made him “angry.”
Woods was asked after the final round of The Northern Trust on Sunday about his relationship with Trump and urged people to respect the office of the president.
“He’s the president of the United States. You have to respect the office. No matter who is in the office, you may like, dislike personality or the politics, but we all must respect the office,” he said.
Kellerman blasted Woods’ remarks, saying it was a “thoughtless statement dressed up as a thoughtful statement.”
ESPN has reportedly been trying to get away from politics and focus on sports, but tirades like this won’t help that attempted movement.
