The Adelphi University men’s lacrosse team takes the field to audio of a Donald Trump campaign speech.
Barstool Sports posted a video of the team going onto the field with one player carrying the American flag.
The following is the excerpt from a Trump speech used in the audio along with music building up in the background:
In all of our cities and in all of our towns, I make this promise: We will make America strong again. We will make America proud again. We will make America safe again. And we will make America great again! God bless you and good night. I love you!
“The men’s lacrosse team has traditionally chosen patriotic music for its pre-game warm-up,” head coach Gordon Purdie said in a statement of his Division II team. “It was not intended to provoke or be taken as a political statement. We’re sorry if anyone was offended.”
