President Trump was giving the commencement speech at Liberty University on Saturday when he broke from his speech to announce the school’s college football schedule for the 2018 season.
Trump took this occasion to mock the school for scheduling FBS powerhouse Auburn on the road. He did so while specifically questioning Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr.
And it was amazing.

We’re not too sure how much President Trump knows about college football. Here’s a guy that once called current San Francisco 49ers quarterback C.J. Beathard the next Tom Brady. Then again, that was during a campaign stop in Iowa, where the quarterback played in college.
But we digress.
Trump is right in that Liberty stands no real chance against Auburn. Heck, the Tigers could play their walk-ons and still come out on top here. The last time Liberty took on a powerhouse FBS school on the road, it lost to Virginia Tech 36-13 to open last season.
More bad news for Liberty. The football team opens up on the road against Baylor this upcoming September.
