New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas took aim at President Donald Trump and his voters in a strongly-worded tweet this week.
Trump has been strongly criticized for his handling of the coronavirus outbreak in the U.S. and Thomas added his voice to the chorus.
Earlier, Thomas had retweeted a clip from Vox journalist Aaron Rupar, which shows the president dismiss criticism of his handling of coronavirus.

In the video, which Rupar captioned “63 million people voted for this”, Trump is asked what he made of the perceptions among some Americans that he wasn’t taking the pandemic seriously enough and that his statements contradict advice from health experts.
Trump’s response to the question is one of his most familiar lines by now.
“That’s CNN, fake news,” the president says.
