Jameis Winston spoke to kids at Melrose Elementary in St. Petersburg, Florida on Wednesday. Shocker! He said something stupid.
As Winston tells it, one of the boys wasn't paying attention and instead of calling the kid out (which it looks like he does anyway), he had all of the boys stand up. While the boys were standing he told them girls are supposed to be silent, Tampa Bay Times:
"All my young boys, stand up. The ladies, sit down," Winston said. "But all my boys, stand up. We strong, right? We strong! We strong, right? All my boys, tell me one time: I can do anything I put my mind to. Now a lot of boys aren't supposed to be soft-spoken. You know what I'm saying? One day y'all are going to have a very deep voice like this (in deep voice). One day, you'll have a very, very deep voice.
"But the ladies, they're supposed to be silent, polite, gentle. My men, my men (are) supposed to be strong. I want y'all to tell me what the third rule of life is: I can do anything I put my mind to. Scream it!"
One thing is absolutely clear after listening to the video and that is, Jameis Winston is a moron. And it's not just the part about ladies being silent.
The real headline should be "Who the fuck let Jameis Winston talk to kids?"
