Sorry I suck at posting tweets. It's kind of hit or miss.

3. A USA Today article with video: Alabama says it won't punish students who boo Trump at LSU game

Alabama will not punish students who boo President Donald Trump at Saturday's game against LSU at Bryant-Denny Stadium.

In a statement Wednesday afternoon, the university's Student Government Association said an earlier message that threatened to revoke seating at future games for "organizations that engage in disruptive behavior" had been taken out of context.

"The SGA strongly affirms its belief in free speech and the rights of all students to express their opinions," the statement said. "Today’s report erroneously assigned a political context to a message meant only to remind students about heightened security and the consequences of altercations or other behaviors unbecoming of a University of Alabama student."

Trump is expected to attend the game, which pits No. 2 LSU against top-ranked Alabama. It will be the third weekend in a row that Trump has attended a sporting event. He was booed during Game 5 of the World Series, and heard a mix of boos and cheers at a UFC fight last weekend in New York.

The visit to Alabama was thought to be an ideal scenario for Trump, who is widely popular in the state. But when AL.com published a story about the message from the SGA's vice president of student affairs, a student, it prompted outrage that Alabama would seek to silence students.

4. All of the sudden....

His Assholiness wants to appear that he's a B-I-G sports fan to better bond with his MAGAts. Don is going for the "regular guy" look.

5. What sports was he involved in - besides golf??

He sure doesn't seem to be a fan of the individual players...

6. I think he got....

a "participation trophy" in shuffleboard when he was 16, but don't quote me on that.
