FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — As if losing in devastating fashion to the Bills on Sunday wasn’t enough, the Jets are getting ripped by fans, NFL pundits and . . . Donald Trump?
Yup, it’s true. The Republican presidential candidate took a shot at the Jets and team owner Woody Johnson a day after they were embarrassed by the Bills, 22-17, when a victory would have put them in the playoffs.
“Woody Johnson, owner of the NYJets, is @JebBush’s finance chairman. If Woody would’ve been w/me, he would’ve been in the playoffs, at least!” Trump tweeted Monday afternoon.
Johnson is one of the biggest fundraisers for the past three Republican presidential nominees and in June was named the national finance chairman for Bush’s presidential campaign, according to The Wall Street Journal.
“Jeb is a bold and thoughtful leader with the vision and experience to ensure our nation’s greatest days remain ahead,” Johnson, at the time, wrote in a statement to the newspaper.
