Former NFL great Brett Favre endorsed President Donald Trump for re-election, and other social media users piled on.


The Hall of Fame quarterback announced Friday that he was backing Trump, who tweeted out a photo of the pair golfing together at the president's golf course in New Jersey.

"My Vote is for what makes this country great, freedom of speech & religion, 2nd Amnd, hard working tax paying citizens, police & military. In this election, we have freedom of choice, which all should respect," Favre tweeted. "For me & these principles, my Vote is for @RealDonaldTrump. #Vote"

The 51-year-old Favre, who played for the Atlanta Falcons, Green Bay Packers, New York Jets and Minnesota Vikings, was reminded of some of his post-retirement lowlights.
