Roger Goodell: Trump Victory ‘Makes My Job Harder at Home’

In a week marked by elections, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell’s chances of winning an election to become forever known as the worst sports commissioner in history received a boost on Thursday.

While discussing the election of Donald Trump, Roger Goodell, whose dad lost his job as a U.S. Senator because a renegade conservative went third party to oust the liberal Republican, claimed that some of Trump’s comments about women have made his life at home as a husband and father harder.

Goodell told the Washington Post, “Listen, it makes my job harder at home, too. I have twin daughters and a wife and so I have to explain that to them. So yes, on that front. Does it make it harder publicly?

“Listen, I think our country has to have more respect for one another and we have to unite. I saw some very positive signs of that yesterday with our current president, Hillary Clinton’s comments publicly and others coming together and saying, ‘We have to get together, we have to unite, we have to address some of the issues and work together.’ President Trump is our president so let’s get behind him.”

What kind of crazy, alternative 1950s universe does Goodell live in where he has to explain the presidency to his wife? This line from the liberal sports media talking point list is the most demeaning to women. Surely she can make the decision on who to vote for on her own. Fifty-three percent of white women voted for Trump, so according to statistics his wife likely voted for Trump. Maybe the woman should explain it to him.

The word “irony” falls short when trying to relay the insanity of Roger Goodell citing Donald Trump for insensitivity towards women. Under Goodell’s reign as commissioner, the NFL saw a player knock his fiancée out in an elevator, another player assault a woman by throwing her on a bed full of guns, and another guy who saw himself like a “God,” and his wife, a “slave” as he assaulted her in front of her children for years.

And how did Goodell deal with these offenses?

Ahhh, when is it going to end.
RG needs to just "govern" so to say, the NFL.

Re: Roger Goodell: Trump Victory ‘Makes My Job Harder at Home’

Someone who has no relation or contact with you or your family makes your job harder at home? Could he be any more of a wuss? This cry baby bull crap is pathetic. All of these people should be ashamed of themselves.

Donald Trump is the President. That's what you tell your kids. It isn't hard. If you wanna throw in a bunch of lies and try to frighten them, then you are both an idiot and a terrible parent, and that's on you.

His wife is Jayne Skinner.
She was a Fox News anchor for years!
I'm sure she needs no splanin on politics.
I used to have a thing for her.
After she married the NFL Turd Sandwich I couldn't even look at her anymore.

I'm pretty sure he meant explain it to his daughters, who are 15, probably live sheltered lives, and may have a hard time understanding how a man who demeans women like Trump does was elected to the highest office in the US.

The word “irony”
Oh, yes, the irony...

Yeah. If only Hillary had won. Then parents could explain to their kids how a woman whose husband demeans and objectifies women in ways that shamed our entire country managed to get elected to the highest office in the land.

She married him? I remember her, and used to have a thing for her too, years ago. I had no idea she married him of all people. Who would even want to be friends with that guy?
