Donald Trump attended the Army-Navy game and threw some shade at the quality of football

When Trump was asked why he was attending the game, he noted that he "just loves the armed forces." But then he he decided to take a bit of a shot at the quality of football played by the academies.

"I mean, I don't know if it is necessarily the best football," Trump said. "But it is very good. But boy do they have spirit, more than anybody."
