Reasons Donald Trump and the Washington Redskins Are So Similar

Updated on August 22, 2016
  • About 30 years ago, both were very relevant. The Washington Redskins won 3 Super Bowls in a 10 year span, winning in 1982, 1987, and 1991. Each Super Bowl was won with a different quarterback, but all were won under head coach Joe Gibbs. In 1982 they played against the Miami Dolphins scoring 2 touchdowns in the last quarter to come from behind and win their 1st of 3 Super Bowls. The matchup in the 1991 season was against the Buffalo Bills which has 5 players in the Hall of Fame. 30 years ago, Donald Trump took the world by storm, building multiple casinos in Las Vegas and in Atlantic City. On top of that, he was slowly building his fortune by building towers on the West Side of New York, which are currently some of the most expensive places to live. He was also the owner of the New Jersey Generals, a team in the USFL which only lasted 3 years. Trump asked Don Shula to join the Generals as a coach, but when Shula asked that a Condo in New York be part of the deal, Trump said no.

  • Similar to the Redskins logo, Trump has long flowing hair. And like their name, after multiple trips to the tanning salon, Trump currently has Redskins. He originally tried out to become their mascot, but after numerous failed attempts, he tried to run for president.

  • Football fans in Washington DC do not have a choice as to what team they root for. For better or for worse, they cheer and praise the Redskins. Much like the Republicans in Washington, they also do not have a choice as to who they vote for. They are stuck with who they have, but are behind him, kind of.

  • The Redskins organization has been in a slump for many years. They have made the playoffs 4 times in the last 16 years, only winning 1 game in those 4 years. Their recent drafts have not been great as most of their picks have not worked out. Players like Jordan Reed, and Matt Jones have proven they are worthy, but are still looking for their franchise QB. Trump has been in a slump the last few weeks, making comments about people of different race, color, and sexual orientation.

  • Come this November, neither will be relevant. Trump has an uphill climb and will be looking up at Hillary as she looks to run away with the election. The Redskins have to complete with the Giants, Cowboys, and the Eagles who have no expectations.

Who will be better....

Who will be relevant come November?
