A call that took a would-be touchdown away from the New York Jets and gave the ball to the New Engald Patriots has the Twitter world buzzing on Sunday. Some decided to sarcastically (or perhaps even genuinely) place the blame at the feet of President Trump, who is a friend of Patriots owner Robert Kraft.
The officials in the Jets-Patriots game are clearly Trump appointees

That is the worst call in history in a regular-season NFL game. The Patriots basically run the league now.

Patriots can't lose. Trump said so.

When will Sarah Huckabee Sanders be asked about Trump’s involvement in this game?
