Donald #Trump once endorsed Johnny Manziel, will a team listen?

Donald Trump is already wrong on one thing…

Donald Trump is pretty popular right now because he is currently leading all the other GOP candidates for Presidency.  A few years back, Johnny Manziel was sliding in the NFL Draft, and Donald Trump made a tweet that is right now pretty popular on Social Media.

Trump endorsed Manziel, but in less than two year Manziel is currently on the streets without a job.

Of course, Trump wasn’t alone on this one — Manziel falling to the Browns in the draft was a pretty big story at the time after a college career that included a Heisman Trophy. He was asked shortly after the draft if he was disappointed that he was picked 22nd.

“For me there’s no disappointment, no anything,” Manziel said at the time. “If you call it a slide, I wouldn’t call it [that] at all. I was drafted in the first round of the NFL draft. For me, it almost blows my mind.”

I highly doubt at this point a team will take a chance on Manziel.  We will find out today if any teams put in a waiver claim for him.  If Johnny does not find a job, maybe Trump can help him? Who knows if Trump wins, maybe Johnny Manziel can get a job in the White House.  I mean the circus cannot get any bigger can it?
