The president is not the only one who will use Twitter to fight back against messages he disapproves of. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers used the social media platform on Tuesday to do the same.
Rodgers said a link from the official website of the team, which contained a thoroughly boring and superficial title: "I feel like the title of this article needs more click bait. Come on, do something or talk to unnamed sources near me or something to improve the clicks. "

Personally, I believe Robinson; NFL reporters with a solid track record can rarely invent things, especially when there is an endless wealth of stories to report and opinions to create. Rodgers's attempt to discard the report in a sly, subtle, and sarcastic way only serves to make me believe even more.
That is, I do not bother Rodgers because he is angry because he has no fair chance to express his opinion on the dismissals of Van Pelt and Nelson. Hell, I'd be pissed off if it was me, and I'd expect Rodgers to be angry if I'm the Packers.
