Aaron Rodgers has always had very strong opinions when it comes to politics and social issues. This week was no exception, as he and former Green Bay Packers teammate David Bakhtiari talked about California Senator Dianne Feinstein (D) and a thread on Twitter took a look at some of her “unusual” stock trades.

After Unusual Whales issued an analysis of Feinstein’s portfolio over the last decade found her net worth reportedly reach just over $200 million.

Dianne Feinstein became a senator in 1992 after previously serving as the mayor of San Francisco. She has become a favorite target of those in right-wing media, due to some of her radical beliefs, alleged abuses of power, and competency to hold office. Feinstein has suffered health problems recently, taking a leave of absence to battle the shingles. That caused her to miss at least 50 Senate votes. During that time, several media outlets and several colleagues began calling for her to step down from her seat.

But the Senator’s health wasn’t the issue that Rodgers and his buddy, Bakhtiari, really had a problem with. Instead, they took to social media to address the post from Unusual Whales about Feinstein’s finances.

The QB and the big offensive tackle specifically targeted a point the site made regarding the 89-year-old Feinstein and her late husband, Richard Blum. They reportedly sold millions in Allogene Therapeutics stock before the market took a tumble in 2020. The post added that they also made a $1 million purchase in Amyris Biotechnologies in 2009 before the company received a government contract.

That didn’t sit well with the two former Packer pals.

“How are we as a nation just ‘cool’ with actions like this? It’s cheating in broad daylight,” the three-time Pro Bowler Bakhtiari tweeted. Rodgers, who was traded by Green Bay to the New York Jets on April 26, appeared to agree.

“Finally Dave, #thisgifisyou,” he added on Twitter with a gif of Ryan Reynolds in the movie “Free Guy.”

Aaron Rodgers has discussed several controversial and even strange topics in the past, including his theory on UFOs, his support of current Presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr., and (most notably) his stance on COVID-19 and its treatment. Part of his appeal to his fan base is that he’s fearless in his opinions.

Rodgers will make his first career start as a Jet on September 11th, when New York hosts the Buffalo Bills.
