Aaron Rodgers Posts ‘Priceless’ Moment with Trump After Major Backlash for Allegedly Ignoring Him

New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers indirectly clapped back at critics who had accused him of rebuffing former President Donald Trump at Saturday’s UFC event.

On Sunday, the NFL star posted a photo of himself on Instagram Stories shaking hands with the former president the previous evening, with the caption “Priceless.”

The picture appeared to be a response to left-wing schadenfreude and conservative backlash after a video clip showed Rodgers remaining seated as Trump made his way through the crowd at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, for UFC 302.

The video showed Trump walking by Rodgers, who wore a New York Yankees cap while seated next to his former Green Bay Packers teammate Marcedes Lewis.

Many social media commenters viewed the incident as a snub and reacted by either mocking Trump or slamming Rodgers.

However, the photo that Rodgers shared on social media the following day debunked the claims that he had snubbed Trump.

Since then, some Trump supporters and media outlets backtracked on their initial assertions.

On Saturday, Trump was greeted with thunderous cheers and applause at UFC 302, where lightweight champ Islam Makhachev defeated challenger Dustin Poirier.

By now, the public is used to left-wing activists and the liberal media spouting anti-Trump fake news.

But it was disappointing to see Trump supporters jump the gun and rip Rodgers after misinterpreting a brief, decontextualized video clip.

It’s unknown if the 2010 Super Bowl champ will vote for the former president in November. He has voiced strong support for independent candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

However, even if Rodgers is not a Trump supporter, it’s absurd to trash him when he has been a valiant and outspoken critic of draconian vaccine mandates and other coronavirus tyranny.

If conservatives want to win elections, they must stop the petty infighting and come together to crush Democrats and their destructive, anti-American agendas.

A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:


“We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.” Those 12 words have been stuck in my head since I first read them. 


Former Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn recently made that comment to Floyd Brown, founder of The Western Journal. 


And if the leftists and the elites get their way, that’s exactly what will happen — no real election, no real choice for the Electoral College, and no real say for the American people.
