Donald Trump ripped the NFL earlier this week for not being tough enough, saying "It's become soft, like our country has become soft."
I wonder what he thinks about high school sports in Wisconsin.
As reported by Richardo Arguello of the Appleton Post-Crescent, new regulations in Wisconsin prohibit high school basketball fans from mockingly chanting "Airball!" when someone throws up a shot that doesn't hit the net. Similarly, fans can't chant "Scoreboard!" when their team is winning. Nor can they taunt opponents with “Season’s over!” during tournament play when one team has been eliminated.
Clearly those are chants meant to taunt the opponent — but they're also factual statements.
Evidently, people can state only facts that are positive.
Making America great is going to be even easier than Trump originally thought, now that it's becoming illegal for anyone to say anything that isn't great.
