The  Republican presidential candidate took a page from Steelers fans by waving a Terrible Towel, and he described that team’s star quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger, as “a friend.” “We love Big Ben,” Trump told his audience Monday. “Big Ben is a friend of mine.” The real estate mogul then launched into a story about a time he hit the links with Roethlisberger. “He once hit a shot that went dead right into a tree, it was a massive tree,” Trump said. “The ball hit the tree so hard, I swear I said, ‘Ben, within two years that tree is going to be dead,’” Trump continued. “And you know what? Two years later … that tree was dead. He is a strong guy, and a good guy, too. Big Ben.” I’m sure Big Ben is thrilled. Donald loves Locker Room guys like Big Ben.-TO
