Redskins defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio gave fans a bit of a glimpse into his political leanings on Tuesday night.
After tweeting about his excitement about the return of baseball, Del Rio retweeted what has been found to be a fabricated image of a tweet from New York rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Wow ?!! Proof..... c’mon AOC https://t.co/KNDRmzX6nH— Jack Del Rio (@coachdelrio) June 24, 2020
He then tweeted about his support for President Donald Trump and America telling detractors to kiss his (expletive).
Fact not fiction https://t.co/M38UuiHTbs— Jack Del Rio (@coachdelrio) June 24, 2020
I’m 100% for America, if you’re not you can kiss my A$$ https://t.co/PKCLPIbqVJ— Jack Del Rio (@coachdelrio) June 24, 2020
Del Rio’s tweets come only days after the President said he was likely to boycott football over players’ - including running back Adrian Peterson’s - decision to kneel during the national anthem in the 2020 season as a peaceful protest.
Head coach Ron Rivera has said he would support his players if they decide to kneel.
The team declined to comment on Del Rio's tweets.
