NFL legends Lawrence Taylor and Ottis “O.J.” Anderson joined Donald Trump on stage at Saturday’s New Jersey rally in Wildwood.

“I grew up a Democrat, and I’ve always been a Democrat until I met this man [Donald Trump] right here,” Lawrence Taylor said.

“He will not have to worry about nobody in my family ever voting for a Democrat again,” he added.


“Former NFL star Lawrence Taylor declared Saturday that Donald Trump changed his politics as he joined the former president at a massive rally in New Jersey,” Just the News reports.

Per Just the News:

Taylor is widely viewed as one of the NFL‘s greatest defensive players, starring for the New York Giants who played their home games in New Jersey.

Taylor and Trump were joined by another Giants legend, running back Otis “O.J.” Anderson at the Wildwood, N.J. rally.

Leading in the polls, Trump held the rally as he vowed to expand the election map to blue states like New York and New Jersey.

An estimated 80,000 attendees came to Wildwood for the historic rally.


Some estimates said possibly 100,000 people attended the rally.

NBC10 Philadelphia reports:

Sandwiched between his appearances in court, Donald Trump headed on Saturday to the Jersey Shore, where he repeatedly blamed President Joe Biden for the criminal charges he’s facing as the presumptive nominees prepare to face off in the November election and called his New York hush money case “a Biden show trial.”

Blasting the Democratic president “a total moron,” Trump before a crowd of tens of thousands repeatedly characterized the cases against him as politically motivated and timed to harm his ability to campaign.

“He’s a fool. He’s not a smart man,” Trump said of Biden. “I talk about him differently now because now the gloves are off.”

Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, drew what his team called a “mega crowd” to a Saturday evening rally in the southern New Jersey resort town of Wildwood, 150 miles (241 kilometers) south of the New York City courthouse where he has been forced to spend most weekdays sitting silently through his felony hush money trial.

Lisa Fagan, spokesperson for the city of Wildwood, told The Associated Press that she estimated a crowd of between 80,000 and 100,000 attendees, based off her own observations on the scene Saturday, having seen “dozens” of other events in the same space.

Rep. Jeff Van Drew (R-NJ) described the event as the “largest political gathering in state history.”
