Even if you wanted to stick to sports for a title game, you might not have a chance. Donald Trump, the 45th President of the United States, is expected to attend the national title game between the Georgia Bulldogs and Alabama Crimson Tide on Monday evening.

With that, protesters are expected to follow.

According to The Associated Press, protests have been planned ahead of the 8 p.m. kickoff. In theory, they will start around the time the president will arrive in Atlanta.

The Atlanta branch of the NCAAP is asking potential protesters to wear white and wave white towels when 45 enters Mercedes-Benz Stadium. According to the NCAAP, the white is in reference to the “snowflake” name-calling Trump supporters have used as a way to discuss those who oppose the President.

“We’re going to make a snowflake turn into a mighty blizzard inside of Mercedes-Benz stadium when Mr. Trump comes,” Gerald Griggs, vice president of the Atlanta NAACP, said Monday.

The NCAAP is also trying to start a movement on Twitter well before the game is even started.

It was recently reported that ESPN was working toward doing an interview with Trump during the game, but the most recent reports suggest that will not happen.

This is a story that will obviously develop as the game gets closer.
