“We need the rest of the f***ing country to wake up because everybody can have this freedom,” Masvidal said at the Trump rally. The legendary fighter continued: “Everybody in the country should have these laws and policies. I love all of you. Just going to ask for one favor before I leave …” That favor? “If we could just get a ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ chant. Let’s go.” The crowd happily obliged in chanting the phrase that many consider to be a dig at President Joe Biden. Naturally, this is hardly the first time that Masvidal has set foot in the political arena. The 38-year-old retired fighter has never been one to mince words when it comes to the current state of American politics. In fact, political arena and the octagon collided for Masvidal when he publicly called out Biden — while praising the former president and GOP presidential hopeful Ron DeSantis — immediately following his retirement. As for the latest Trump rally, it kept in tone with the effective victory lap that Trump is taking due to his commanding lead over this GOP primary rivals. [firefly_poll] “I’m standing in front of tens of thousands of people right now, and it’s on television. That’s a lot harder to do than a debate,” Trump bragged at the rally, per the Associated Press. According to Real Clear Politics, the former president holds a commanding 44 point lead over his DeSantis, his closest rival, in national polling data.
