Donald Trump Jr. has defended Jon Gruden, the disgraced head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders, who resigned this week on allegations of homophobia and racism.
Former President Donald Trump’s eldest son urged the National Football League (NFL) to release emails and messages from all team owners and executives.
“Let’s look at the emails and texts from (Commissioner Roger) Goodell and every NFL owner / manager. We need to find out if they ever said the wrong thing, shared a controversial thought, or expressed an opinion that wasn’t PC Limitations, “Mr. Trump Jr. tweeted.
He said the NFL owners shouldn’t be allowed to hide behind their “white privilege”.
Mr Gruden resigned from his post after emails came to light allegedly using homophobic, racist and misogynist language.
He frequently used misogynist and homophobic language addressed to Roger Goodell and others in the NFL. The New York Times reported. It was also said that Mr. Gruden made a racist comment in 2011 about the executive director of the NFL players’ union.
The trainer said in a statement on Monday: “I love the Raiders and don’t want to be a distraction. Thank you to all of the Raider Nation players, coaches, staff, and fans. I’m sorry, I never meant to hurt anyone. “
Regarding the controversial incident surrounding President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, Trump Jr. wrote, “The same leftists who want to burn John Gruden at the stake for saying some stupid personal emails from 10 years ago Said things were terribly silent as they leaked texts that were much newer (2018!) Showed Hunter Biden dropping the N word repeatedly.
Josh Barnett, a congressional candidate from Arizona, wrote, “Hunter Biden’s emails are 100 times worse than Gruden’s.”
Political commentator and sports journalist Clay Travis claimed that “every rapper the NFL played at the Super Bowl has more offensive text than Jon Gruden in their emails.”
Conservative talk show host Jesse Kelly argued that Mr. Gruden’s resignation was led by “a bunch of lying, whiny pretenders in this country.”
“It’s all culture demolition,” wrote television presenter Greg Kelly.
Mr. Gruden signed a 10-year contract worth up to $ 100 million in 2018 to train the Raiders. Before that, he briefly led the team from 1998 to 2001.
The NFL received emails Mr. Gruden sent to former Washington Football Team president Bruce Allen as part of a separate workplace misconduct investigation. Mr Gruden allegedly used a racist commentary to describe the NFL Players Association leader DeMaurice SmithWall Street Journal reported.
The latest report revealed that it denounced, among other things, the drafting of a gay player and players who protested while the national anthem was playing. He allegedly used a gay smear to insult Mr. Goodell and Michael Sam, the league’s first publicly gay player.
He also said Mr. Goodell shouldn’t have pressured the Los Angeles Rams to call “queers” – referring to Michael Sam.
Raiders Defensive End Carl Nassib came out in June and is the first openly gay player to appear in an NFL game.
