Always be cautious when talking to your Lyft driver, especially if they're asking very specific questions about a very specific sports figure, and especially if they tell you to sit in the front seat. Actually, if they insist that you sit in the front seat, you should text a friend and let them know what cab you're getting into. It's not that you should be afraid of making a new friend, but that driver could be none other than NFL superstar and New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham, Jr.
I know. It sounds crazy, but it happened, and you know what, Lyft filmed it.
What would you do if your favorite — or worse, least favorite — athlete was behind the wheel? Would you tell them to their face what you think of them? Probably not. You'd probably freak like these people. Why? Because that's what people do when they meet celebrities. They freak like these people do.
Donald Trump has said a lot of things this election season, but there’s one thing none of us should stand for: Lying about our professional athletes and supermodels. Professional athletes and supermodels are the backbone of this country. They are who we aspire to be, and who we bow down before, hanging our heads in shame.
This makes Tom Brady’s supposed endorsement of Donald Trump all the more disturbing.
The New York Post reports that Donald Trump said to a rally on Monda that he spoke to Brady and recieved his vote. Trump recounted their conversation:
“Great guy, great friend of mine — great, great champion. Unbelievable winner. He called today and he said, ‘Donald, I support you, you’re my friend, and I voted for you.
And I said, ‘So Tom. You voted for me, you support me, am I allowed to say it tonight at this massive crowd in New Hampshire?’ He said, ‘If you want to say it, you can say it.’”
However, in the hours that passed, word finally got to Tom Brady’s wife, supermodel Gisele Bündchen. On Instagram, a fan put it bluntly, asking “Gisele I heard you and Tom were backing Trump! Is that true??”
And there you have it, folks. This election season has brought out a lot in all of us. We struggle as a nation to bridge great divides between us and find our place in this crazy, mixed-up world. It’s hard enough, but at least we can rely on our supermodels and professional athletes to be there for us, speak for themselves, and never get lost in the fray.
