Fans of the New York Jets quarterback were quick to antagonize him on social media. Rodgers’ video he posted on his Instagram with Lewis filled the comments section with pro-Trump support. Rodgers backed independent candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. for president.

Trump was making one of his first public appearances following last week’s guilty verdict in his New York criminal case.

On Sunday, Rodgers posted a photo on his Instagram Stories showing that he shook hands with Trump in between fights.
