President Trump’s attacks on peacefully protesting minority NFL players continues to backfire, as massively popular NBA superstar Lebron James just issued a harsh but powerful response to Trump’s attacks. James is primarily responding to Trump’s attack on fellow NBA star Stephen Curry this morning.
LeBron James called President Trump a “bum” today after Trump said Stephen Curry, and possibly all of the Golden State Warriors team, was no longer welcome at the White House following the Golden State Warriors’ championship victory. “U bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain’t going! So therefore ain’t no invite. Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up!” James posted.
Last night, Curry indicated to reporters that he is not interested in visiting the White House, saying, “I don’t want to go.” He said in June he “probably” wouldn’t go to the White House, and this week said he didn’t think the team should go either.
Trump responded to Curry this morning and said that, “Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team.Stephen Curry is hesitating,therefore invitation is withdrawn!” Trump consistently attacks black celebrities who speak out, calling them “sons of bitches”, while white men who march with Nazis are “very fine people.”
Last night, President Trump stirred up all of this controversy, as he gave a speech at a campaign rally in Huntsville, Alabama. During his speech, Trump went over the line with an attack on NFL players who peacefully protest during the national anthem, by kneeling or remaining seated while the anthem plays before football games.
Halfway through his speech, Trump asked the crowd if they’d, “love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘get that son of a b*tch off the field right now.’” As the crowd began cheering, Trump yelled, “He’s fired.” With this attack, Trump has officially taken a harder stance against peaceful protesters, than he has against actual neo-Nazis.
