    Default Bobby Orr endorces Donald Trump

    Hate to mention DT here but this is very surprising to me. Not the person I thought he was. I'm almost heartbroken.

    I'm just surprised that a humble, honest Canadian superstar athlete who was adored by millions of Canadians (except for Hab fans obviously) for decades could support the narcissistic, murdering, pathalogical lying leader of the free world. That's all.

    You don't have to care, but it's perfectly reasonable that other people would care, and that it would affect their opinion of him either way.

    What a shame, Jack Nicklaus too. They're both old white guys so I guess it makes sense. I'm just glad Gord Downie isn't around to see this.

    It is disappointing. Ah well. At the end of the day thousands of sports stars and celebrities renounce Trump. Inevitable that a small percentage would differ. It would be much more strange if it was otherwise.

    Still. Jack and Bobby? Damn. Hehe.

    Sure, and Wayne Gretzky loved Scheer.

    Older, rich, white guys love conservatives. Shocking!

    Great hockey players, but politics is different.

    I would pose there is a relatively significant gap between Trump and Scheer.

    Sure, whatever. Point is conservatism and older, rich, white guys are generally awfully closely linked.

    Biden ISN’T a rich, old white guy? In my view, defining either of the presidential candidates as honest and trustworthy is hilarious. As always, most people in USA vote for their view of the lesser of evils, rather than the “best” person.

    Of course Biden is a rich old white guy, but he would be far worse for the rest of the rich old white guys than Trump.

    Very old people have a tendency to lose their minds, and do and say stupid stuff. This is another reminder of that.

    Not totally surprised about Jack. I always found him somewhat disingenuous.
