Everyone is waiting with uncontrolled anticipation for Lady Gaga’s halftime statement, which in all likelihood will be political in nature and in direct opposition to President Trump. She said this week that it will teach us about “inclusion.”

One would think that after a year of plummeting ratings and Colin Kaepernick owning the spotlight, the NFL would not try to make any overtly political statements.
We're timing dinner for halftime, so someone can let me know later how well this worked out. https://t.co/yzyXTduez6

She will probably win an ESPY Courage Award if she does make an anti-Trump statement.

So her aim to "be inclusive to everyone" means "be inclusive to everyone who isn't a Trump supporter". https://t.co/mMbfx71zQz

Why anger millions of people who voted for Trump? It is amazing that the NFL cannot seem to understand how damaging that is to its own business model.
