New York Giants Eli Manning Denies Calling A ‘Trump’ Audible

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning has denied calling a “Trump” audible during their game against the Los Angeles Rams — even though it definitely sounds like he did.

Manning made a pre-play adjustment at the line of scrimmage captured by an on-field microphone that sounded a whole lot like, “Trump Trump, Trump Trump.”

The Giants quarterback denied using the Republican nominees name in the play call when asked about it after the game, according to Deadspin.

“No. No Trump call. No Trump call,” he said. “We had something very similar, but no. No. It was not a Trump. So no, no audible this week.”

The Giants wouldn’t be the only team using a Trump audible, if Manning would just admit to calling it.

Both Eli and Peyton Manning supported Jeb Bush in the Republican primaries and donated money to his campaign. Perhaps that’s the reason Eli won’t own up to his play call.
