Exclusive: Clemsonís Black Players Refused to Accept Donald Trumpís Invitation to the McCookout
The Root ^ | 29th January 2019 | Michael Harriot

Posted on 01/29/2019 6:16:10 PM PST by Ennis85

When Filet-O-Fish aficionado Donald Trump invited the Clemson Tigers to enjoy the White House’s first Presidential Value Meal, most of Clemson’s national championship football team members jumped at the opportunity to meet the original cheeseburger-swallowing clown. But The Root has learned that Clemson’s black players, some specifically citing racism and their disdain for Trump’s divisive politics, passed on the opportunity to hang out with the real-life Mayor McCheese.

The Root spoke with three black Clemson players who each separately confirmed that many players, both black and white, had no interest in making the trip. All three acknowledged that Donald Trump was the reason they chose not to attend. Even more telling, most of Clemson’s white players were in attendance while nearly three-fourths of the school’s black football players took a hard pass on the chance to eat cold fries with the president of people who eat salads from McDonald’s.

“It wasn’t like we had a team meeting or anything,” said one of Clemson’s offensive stars who spoke with The Root on the condition of anonymity. “Players were talking amongst each other but everybody was like: ‘I’m not going to that.’”

Another defensive standout noted that coaches didn’t pressure players to accompany the team to Washington, D.C., but said that almost every black player he knew didn’t want to take the trip. However, he noted that he knew that some players only attended because they worried that refusing to attend the traditional White House visit might affect their scholarships or playing time.

“Not saying anything against the players who went,” the junior explained, “but if you look at who went—freshman and people fighting for playing time—you’ll see what I’m talking about.”

"There are at least 57 black student-athletes on Clemson’s official team roster, which means 74 percent of Clemson’s African-American players chose not to make the trip to the White House."

Are you f**king kidding me?

There is a lot of fake news with peer pressure on social media right now. That’s what is happening.

And when they aren’t drafted by the NFL, they can get on EBT cards like the rest of their families. Do they really think it hurt President Trump?

They turned down a trip to the WH because of Trump? Dumb. I went to DC during Obama and did the tour of the WH. Those players would of been able to see parts of the WH that those of us couldn’t doing the tour. Idiots!
