APPLETON, WI – Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and actress/model girlfriend Olivia Munn made a surprise public appearance together at the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center in Appleton, WI, Tuesday morning to show support for Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.
The superstar couple kept a low profile and spoke only briefly with press and fans. “Today is about Bernie Sanders,” Rodgers told the Peshtigo Times Review, “his message is resonating with the youth of this country and it’s an exciting thing to witness.” Olivia credits Senator Sanders for getting her interested in politics again. “Bernie is one of those once-in-a-lifetime candidates. I think he would make a wonderful president,” said Munn.

Rodgers and Munn have been outspoken advocates for various racial, environmental, and social justice issues. Many will remember Rodgers voicing his displeasure during a post game press conference after Islamophobic slurs from unruly Packers fans interrupted a pre-game tribute to the victims of the Paris terror attacks. “It’s that kind of prejudicial ideology that I think puts us in the position that we’re in today,” Rodgers said.

Rodgers is not the first Super Bowl winning MVP quarterback to publicly endorse a candidate for president. Last September, Tom Brady of the New England Patriots pledged his support for Republican front runner Donald Trump, saying it would be “great” if The Donald won the election.

Aaron and Olivia will celebrate two years together this spring. The couple split their time between sunny California and the frozen tundra of Green Bay, Wisconsin.

    Bernie Sanders needs to win the rest of the states by the same landslide he’s achieved in WA, AK, HI, to gain and keep ahead of Hillary. If Sanders only won CA then lost the rest of the remaining states that would not do. He especially needs NY State. Hillary Clinton moved to NY State with the sole purpose of becoming a senator there to further her future career as president. She made a lot of connections there and the DNC establishment will corrupt the hell out of the primary there for her. Probably make Florida look like a joke. People need to step up with donations, phone banking and canvassing for Bernie in NY. There’s also Penn. and Wisconsin and a few others coming up. We need to document everything we see with our Cell phone cameras because, the establishment is going to ramp up corrupting the primary process in HRC’s favor as they have already done from here on out. If we want Bernie, we need to fight for him. Every state so far, that has experience shady primaries and caucuses needs to make a fuss like in AZ. Storm your Secretary of State’s office by the thousands and demand free and fair and monitored elections. This is what I find infuriating about Americans we know this shit happens and not enough of us have the commitment to stand our ground and take the action and stick with it until we get what we want. THIS IS WHAT IT’S GOING TO TAKE. If we let it happen and take their shit lying down, well then???? We’ll get what we came for, the same old shit, different day. Get off your asses and fight, storm the castle in droves by the thousands and don’t leave until your secretary of state and the governor reschedule the primary and caucus with paper ballots, with receipts, independent counters and monitors. Fight for free and fair elections or you won’t get them. The entirety of the populous needs to be involved not just the fucking handful of activists in every state. THIS IS WHAT IT’S GOING TO TAKE! WAKE UP! PARTICIPATE! And yes, you can c&p this and pass it on.

    I appreciate your enthusiasm for Mr.Sanders… should realize that the Clintons don’t lose to many elections. Usually the people that get in there way get taken care of. I s expect the same to happen to Bernie. I wish you luck….but be prepared to see Hildog get the nomination.
