Find out why Michael Sam is calling Donald Trump ‘an asshole’

Michael Sam isn’t buying Donald Trump’s recent claims that he would be better for the LGBTI community that Hillary Clinton if elected president of the US.

‘He’s an asshole,’ said Sam, the first openly gay man to be drafted by an NFL team.

‘You want to vote for someone who has LGBT rights, vote for Hillary.’

Sam made the remark after being asked by TMZ about Trump’s 2014 comments regarding Sam kissing his then-boyfriend on live TV when he found out he’d been drafted by the St. Louis Rams.

Trump was asked about the kiss in 2014 during a call-in interview with Fox and Friends.

‘I’ve heard many people – I’m not even speaking for myself – who felt the display after he was chosen was inappropriate,’ Trump said.

‘And whether or not it was, I don’t know. It was certainly out there a little bit. … He was really going at it. I haven’t seen anything like that in awhile. He was really going at it.’

Trump complained about a ‘double standard’ in regards to former player Tim Tebow’s public displays of Christianity, both on and off the field.

But aside from kissing his boyfriend in public, Trump did not seem to have a problem with a gay man playing in the NFL in general.

‘I’m very happy that he got chosen, I’m all for it – I think it’s great actually. I hope he does so well.’

Sam did not do ‘so well.’ He was cut by the Rams after playing for them in the pre-season.

He was then signed by the Dallas Cowboys for their practice squad and dropped a month later.

Sam also went on to briefly play in the Canadian Football League.
