Athletes vs Trump
In addition to his constant attacks on various news outlets, labeling them as fake news, Trump had some classic Twitter wars with some high profile individuals of color. And whether it be his failure to immediately denounce the Charlottesville massacre as an act of white supremacy and terrorism, instead spreading the blame to include innocent people of color who were slaughtered, or his verbal assaults on African-American athletes, his Twitter war with Jemele Hill to his recent reversals of policies instituted during the Obama administration, Trump has set the tone of his administration in a crazy first year, making it clear that he could care less about any fraction of society labeled as a minority.
Trump Attacked in 2017. Theres no doubt about that. He took no Holidays off. Too bad it happened to be the minorities in his country who endured the brunt of it.
The president called LaVar Ball, the father of one of three U.C.L.A. players arrested in China for shoplifting, a poor mans version of Don King, and an ungrateful fool! and insisted that IT WAS ME who deserved more thanks for rescuing Mr. Balls son from the Chinese authorities. Trump was mad that LaVar refused to thank him after LiAngelo Ball came home.
It wasn’t the White House, it wasn’t the State Department, it wasn’t father LaVar’s so-called people on the ground in China that got his son out of a long term prison sentence – IT WAS ME. Too bad! LaVar is just a poor man’s version of Don King, but without the hair.
LaVar, you could have spent the next 5 to 10 years during Thanksgiving with your son in China, but no NBA contract to support you. But remember LaVar, shoplifting is NOT a little thing. It’s a really big deal, especially in China. Ungrateful fool!
Jemele Hill Tweeted that Trump Was a White Supremacist and all hell broke loose.
She said what most felt already but it angered our vengeful POTUS and ESPN suits ran scared, suspending the SC6 host.
@DonnyParlock @demillz84 @JayG34 Donald Trump is a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists.
For the first time in American history a President called for the job of a sports journalist. ESPN did bend, but an outpouring of colleague and public support made sure the company didn’t break and Trump was disgusted that the sports media company refused to fire Hill for telling the truth.
As Trump now attacks ESPN/Jemele Hill, this once again proves that free speech for Black folk ain’t free at all: https://t.co/CUx0XbDL0T
Trump’s attempt at getting Hill fired shows what kind of unethical person he is and how unfit he is to lead.
With Jemele Hill at the mike, it is no wonder ESPN ratings have “tanked,” in fact, tanked so badly it is the talk of the industry!
In a span of three days in September, Trump had his most glorious and successful run of revenge and divisiveness. With an agenda aimed at discrediting the NFL for previously denying him ownership of a team, and all publications with a liberal tilt, Trump instigated and fueled a nasty national attack on the NFL and any player of color who chose to follow in the footsteps of Colin Kaepernick and kneel for the anthem in protest of police brutality and social injustice.
The NFL has decided that it will not force players to stand for the playing of our National Anthem. Total disrespect for our great country!
Trump first sparked a weekend filled with protests, angry tweets and divisive jabber when he told an Alabama rally, Wouldnt you love to see one of these NFL owners when somebody disrespects our flag to say, Get that son of a b- off the field.
He also found time to call out Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry regarding the champions invitation to the White House.
Trump came for sports. Sports wasn’t having it. https://t.co/nAPWcCdlXb
A barrage of tweets followed which had a huge impact on how the average American viewed the protests, painted athletes as villains and their civil rights activism as a threat to the country. Trumps attacks caused chaos and encouraged every American to channel their inner racist, while he worked behind the scenes to create policy that benefits the rich and elite.

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!

Trump Supports NASCAR threatening To Fire Any Driver Who Doesn’t Stand For Pledge
So proud of NASCAR and its supporters and fans. They won’t put up with disrespecting our Country or our Flag – they said it loud and clear!
They say Rome wasnt built in a day, but nobody thought our country could be destroyed in a year either. Be clear, there will be alot more Twitter attacking done by the POTUS in 2018. It has provided the perfect distraction while he accomplishes his true agendas. Hes just getting started
