San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman doesn’t think he would go to the White House if they were able to get by the Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl.
Asked by Scott Ostler of the San Francisco Chronicle if the 49ers would go, Sherman replied: “I haven’t thought about it. We’ve got a long way between now and then, but I doubt it.”
Sherman knows it’s not something they should be looking ahead to, but he was asked the question so he answered it. President Trump hasn’t weighed in yet on Sherman’s comments, but that could be coming. Golden State Warriors standout Steph Curry has been critical of the President, which caused Trump to rescind his invitation to the team.
With Sherman being asked the question, it would only make sense for reporters to ask the same of Nick Bosa. He has tweeted and then deleted his support for Trump, and also has been critical of 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
Bosa did say heading into the draft he was done talking politics and keeping his opinions to himself.
“I’m just getting ready for the draft,” Bosa said, via Matt Maiocco of NBCSportsBayArea.com. “I’m not really worried about Twitter any more. I think the people who know me, know who I am. And I’m going to keep my opinions to myself from now on.”
This will be a non-story if the 49ers lose to the Chiefs, but if they can win the Super Bowl, deciding if they want to go the White House is a good problem to have.
