UPDATE: Bo Scarbrough denied shouting an obscenity towards the president. Instead, he claims that what he really said was “f*** Georgia.
President Donald Trump was in attendance for Monday night’s College Football Playoff National Championship Game between the Alabama Crimson Tide and Georgia Bulldogs at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, but not everyone was pleased.
In a video captured by Sporting News, one Alabama football player, allegedly running back Bo Scarbrough, voiced his displeasure while walking to the locker room.
The video shows the Crimson Tide players walking back to the locker room when someone yells out, “F*** Trump!”

Well, that’s not very nice.
The good news is Donald Trump didn’t hear the obscenity, because otherwise we would have been in for a Twitter tantrum on Tuesday morning.
Trump also seemed to enjoy himself on the night, marching out onto the field as the flag was presented and the national anthem was performed by the Zac Brown Band.
The Crimson Tide and Bulldogs are currently locked in a scoreless tie with less than two minutes remaining in the opening quarter of the game.
