Donald Trump is out here breaking college football news

Maybe someone could hire him to work in the media as a reporter.

1. Donald Trump is the president of the United States.

2. Saturday, he gave the commencement address at Liberty University, which is boldly (to say the least) jumping from FCS to FBS.

3. During an extended sidebar on how well he thinks the Flames will fare at college football’s top subdivision, this happened:

Trump read out future opponents’ names: UMass, Virginia, Auburn, Rutgers, Old Dominion, BYU, Army, Buffalo, Troy, Virginia Tech, Ole Miss, and Wake Forest.

“Jerry [Falwell, Jr., the school president], are you sure you know what you’re doing?” Trump riffed at one point. “Jerry, Auburn? I don’t know about that, Jerry. This could be trouble, Jerry.”

Trump said he might be at the Liberty-Army game and didn’t know who he’d be supposed to root for. (Probably Army, as he’s the commander-in-chief, but whatever.)

“Those are really top schools,” Trump said. “Maybe in four or five years I’ll come to a game, right? You’ll build it up. Well, good luck.”

4. The Auburn, BYU, and Virginia games were announced for the first time from the podium by Trump himself.

5. I don’t think anyone broke more college football news this weekend than President Trump did.

6. Everything makes only as much sense as it needs to make at the time.

7. Heck, we’re still talking about Liberty football on Monday!
