Find a story and give it a different spin

Story: The N.F.L. Stiff-Armed Trump. Now He Is Heckling From the White House. – The New York Times

Five additional feature-ish stories that can come out of this story:

  1. How has politics affected sports since Trump came into office?
  2. Why is politics in every aspect of life since Trump became President?
  3. Can politics be removed from anything from sports to entertainment to everyday conversations?
  4. When can sports be just sports again?
  5. How do sports like football feel about all this attention on them because of the President?

The one that I would like to do most is number three. The reason is that ever since the 2016 presidential election, politics have become the basis of news in every aspect and Trump or his administration is in the headlines every single day.

    I kind of like #4, as a subset of #3, but I wouldn’t know where to start. You could maybe turn it a bit and ask fans how/if their enjoyment of sports has changed in the last couple of years.

    The image of Trump as a “heckler” also seems apt. He is becoming more and more isolated, so all he can do is tweet from afar.
