Months After Deion Sanders Labeled the US a “Soft Country”, Arnold Schwarzenegger Shockingly Calls for a “Leader” Like Coach Prime in Politics

Deion Sanders houses a persona that goes beyond his multi-sport star identity and touches upon that of an equally successful college football coach, an incredible pitchman, and a popular television personality. He has been part of mainstream popular culture for 35 years. That too, in ways that extended his appearance in popular brand campaigns including Pizza Hut, Pepsi, and Nike commercials in the early 1990s, making appearances in rap videos and his own reality show, and even hosting a Miss USA pageant.

Schwarzenegger, who held the governorship of California from 2003 to 2011, has been recognized for his moderate positions on topics such as abortion and environmental protection, which stand in contrast to the more conservative factions within the Republican Party. Schwarzenegger’s suggestion, however, comes as a stark contrast to a brutal truth about the country that Sanders had earlier pointed out.

Coach Prime has been anything but soft with his band of college boys. Within less than a year of assuming leadership, he was not only able to turn over an 11-1 team to a 3-2 team but also turn the Colorado Buffaloes into a national spectacle. Previously, he could oversee such a miracle with Jackson State University and people can not help but imagine what a wave of change he might bring on a national scale if he were to assume a political office.
