Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin, who threw Alejandro Villaneuva under the bus after he participated in the national anthem on Sunday, is reportedly a staunch Hillary Clinton supporter, according to BizPacReview. Tomlin hosted a fundraiser for the failed presidential candidate prior to the 2016 election.
Check it out:
Villanueva earned widespread praise for his patriotism, but then apologized (under duress) the next day. He said he was sorry he made his unpatriotic coach and teammates look bad. Well, now we know why he apologized: Villanueva’s obnoxious coach is a flaming liberal bully.
Records show that Tomlin has donated tens of thousands of dollars over the years to Barack Obamaand Hillary Clinton’s political campaigns.
In June 2016, Tomlin hosted a posh fundraiser for Hillary at his Pittsburgh mansion. Tickets to the event cost $10,000 to $33,400. The most expensive ticket included a private meeting with Tomlin and Hillary.
Here’s a flyer from the event:
