If the 49ers win the Super Bowl, don’t expect to see Richard Sherman celebrating at the White House.
The NFL star was asked Thursday if he would go to D.C. to meet Donald Trump, as several championship teams have done in the past … and Sherman essentially shot that down.
“I haven’t thought about it. We’ve got a long way between now and then, but I doubt it,” Sherman told SF Chronicle’s Scott Ostler.
As with most large groups of people these days, it’s fair to assume not everyone on the team feels the same way Sherman does … especially since his star teammate Nick Bosa is a proud Trump supporter.
First, the 49ers have to win the Super Bowl — and the Kansas City Chiefs are obviously gonna try to not let that happen. That game goes down Sunday Feb. 2nd.
The White House honor has become a VERY politically charged event now — with star players from various sports boycotting including Chris Long, Torrey Smith, Mookie Betts, Alex Cora and the entire Golden State Warriors team.
On the flip side, there are a ton of athletes who HAVE gone and raved about the experience — including the LSU Tigers football team, NASCAR champ Joey Logano, Tiger Woods and more.
