Transcript for NFL commissioner's wife defended him with Twitter account
Right now we'll turn to that anonymous Twitter account that came to the defense of NFL commissioner Roger Goodell whenever he was criticized. T.J. Is here and, T.J., not so anonymous. Wives will stand by their man but if they tweet for him, that's love. Now, this -- we did not know. The NFL commissioner, we covered. He gets criticized for deflategate, for handling discipline in the NFL, for the anthem, right? Well, someone, his wife, came to his defense, we just didn't know it was her. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is a frequent target of criticism on social media. But one Twitter user under the name @forargument defended him taking aim at him with tweets like this responding to an article about the response to president trump's attacks criticizing the reporters involved reads like press release from players union. You can do better reporting. Another tweet scolded a columnist for posting this saying Roger Goodell with three guys who will be disowned by their families tomorrow. Firing back why is everyone so immature including you? "The Wall Street journal" says the author of those tweets, Goodell's wife Jane Skinner Goodell, a former Fox News anchor. Thanks for watching and see you at the super bowl for sure. Reporter: She fessed up about her bogus account which has been deleted saying it was a really silly thing to do and done out of frustration and love. As a former media member I'm always bothered when the coverage doesn't provide an complete and accurate picture of a story. I'm also a wife and a mom. I have always passionately defended the hard-working guy I love and I always will. Okay, look, the NFL is not too concerned saying she did what any spouse would want to do and say he is not -- he was not aware so they weren't talking about this at home. She did this on her own. Her statement says it all. It was a silly thing to do but did it out of love. I love it. Ride or die, people, I mean, people want to just say give her a break, I want to give her a standing ovation. I would love to be defended like this. I need somebody for an anonymous account to defend me from the things my wife says about me. I love this. Your wouldn't wouldn't be -- wow. Wow. You got another one right now. Right there. It's all good. Thank you, T.J. Have a good weekend. You're a hot mess but you're still blessed. Hot mess, still blessed.
