2:00 PM PT — Garth just responded to Barry’s tweet … saying “Hey @BarrySanders I would run any race with you! #Number20for2020 HA!!! love you pal, g”
Barry Sanders has entered the great Garth Brooks jersey scandal of 2020 … hilariously asking the country singer if he wants to team up and run America together!!
Of course, some Garth fans lost their damn minds this week when he wore a Sanders #20 jersey at the Detroit stop on his stadium tour … thinking the wardrobe choice was in support of Democratic nominee Bernie Sanders and not the Hall of Fame running back.
One fan wrote … “Good grief. Can’t you just do what you get paid to do ???? Why why why does it have to involve politics !!! 🤢 So sad. We don’t pay good money for anything other than to watch you perform. 😡 Thought you were different.”
The confusion is absolutely hilarious … and it just got even better, ’cause Barry has chimed in with a zinger for the ages.
“Hey @garthbrooks, want to be my VP? #Number20for2020” Sanders tweeted.
The Detroit Lions even got involved too … making Sanders’ first official campaign graphic.
Maybe, Garth can rally some friends in low places to hit the voting booths!!
