Michigan TE Jake Butt doesn’t know his political history

The 2016 Presidential race is one of the hottest topics in the country right now. Everyone seems to be getting in on the discussions and the latest well-known name to drum up some conversation is Michigan tight end Jake Butt.

However, Butt is getting a little flak because he isn’t too familiar with his political history. According to College Spun, Butt asked a pretty ridiculous question when it comes to the leading Democratic candidate.

Wow, Jake. Do you really want to know the answer to that question? Apparently, I wasn’t the only one who reacted this way to his question.

To answer your question, Mr. Butt, yes, Hillary Clinton is married. To a guy named William, or Bill for short. You mave have only a youngster when he was in office, but Hillary’s husband was President from 1993-2001.

Thank god you don’t have to know politics to be good at football.
