I knew Superbowl champion coach Barry Switzer was a funny guy because I saw it many times when he was coach of the Dallas Cowboys. But when he took the mainstream media on a ride and you can only imagine their embarrassment when they started to report this story as real.
From The Hill:
Former Dallas Cowboys coach Barry Switzer says his “meeting” with Donald Trump never happened.
According to Politico, Switzer was shopping with his family in New York City earlier this month when he passed by Trump Tower and decided to go in.
“All the media people said, ‘Coach what are you doing here,’” Switzer told Politico. “I told them I was here to see the president like everyone else.”
But Switzer only went upstairs, bought a coffee from Starbucks, and came back down.
“I told the reporters I had a great visit, and that we were going to make the wishbone great again,” he said. “I told them I was going to be Secretary of Offense and that Trump knew how to run the ball down the field.
“Then I went back to my hotel and laughed my ass off. It went everywhere. Everyone believed it. I had all these calls, but I was just jerking people around.”
