Video: Alabama Football Team Prays Over President Trump

Whereas numerous professional athletes have childishly boycotted visiting the White House, not only did the University of Alabama Crimson Tide football team visit 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue – they also prayed over President Donald Trump.

The remarkable moment happened Tuesday while the team was meeting Trump following their 2018 NCAA Football National Championship win. WBRC News sports reporter Christina Chambers tweeted that Alabama punter JK Scott asked Trump “if he could pray for him and his staff.” Chambers also shared a video of the Alabama players gathered around Trump to pray.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders also tweeted about the prayer, adding that faith transcends sports rivalries.

This isn’t the first time the Alabama Crimson Tide have made headlines regarding Trump. Alabama running back Bo Scarbrough caused quite a bit of controversy in January when he was caught on video apparently yelling “F*ck Trump!” while the team entered the field for the National Championship game in Atlanta.

Scarbrough denied yelling the phrase. It’s unclear whether he participated in the prayer over Trump.

Nevertheless, the team was nothing but respectful on Tuesday. Professional athletes could learn a thing or two from these young men.

  • Oh, c'mon! The media didn't miss this prayer, the media decided not to mention it, write about or show it on MSM. Quit giving the MSM a pass, especially on this very memorable moment!!!

  • Chris, you are correct! Thank GOD, who is still in control! SO clueless, Desperate, and careless! Too focused on ignoring, discounting any and all effort to MAGA by our President, they've lost all common sense and reasoning! It's called diversion, just like their idol (who was only a puppet for "sorrows") who preceded him!

  • Best time to "take a knee" or take a STAND! I've always admired The Tide even when they played against NC! Bear Bryant was one ot the greatest coaches in history! Along with john Madden, Don Shula, and Tom Landrey, etc.! College sports are MUCH more patriotic and PRO-America than the over-paid, over-worshiped self indulgent millionaires (Via US!) in the modern sports players arena!

  • The media is so afraid of TRUMP's rising approval #'s. This scene is televised and mentioned for a whole day. Trump having prayer with black players has driven the FAKE MEDIA out of their minds.This punk bi-sexual MORNING JOE even went to ALABAMA. What a dirtbag. TRUMP near 55 % now. The media is SICK and DESPERATE.

  • Gee ! I guess that there are SOME football teams that aren't full of "Anthem-kneelers", wife-beaters, rapists and druggies !!!!!

  • And one last thing, I salute the job our President is doing and hopes he will run for another term. I think he should fire Jeff Sessions and Rosenstein immediately. And good rudders to that weakling Paul Ryan who is as weak as one could be. Just like the rest of the Republicans! After the way the Republicans have treated THEIR elected President by not supporting him or backing him and turning their cheeks when the liberals are all over the Pres. it’s downright disgusting. I relinquish my Republican standing and am embarrassed I ever was one!

  • The Crimson Tide did a good thing. They showed respect for the White House and the President. Something several of the NFL players have failed to do which is why myself and obviously many many others did not tune in to NFL games this season and won’t as long as those unpatriotic Neanderthals disrespect this country!! And no the media didn’t cover this story of the Crimson Tide praying because it was a positive news story and one that shows respect for our President. CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, Washington Post and the New York Times have ruined this country and have done more to divide this country than any Politician or political party has. And a majority of this country believes that. What a disgrace this country’s media has become. ...

  • Such little knowledge of the spiritual ... got any Biblical examples of God smacking down men who come to him in prayer?
