Skip to comments.What Trump's NFL, Curry remarks should signal to his base (The Left takes the bait)

President Donald Trump is going to war with some high-profile African-American athletes who have political thoughts on their minds. The President said that fans should walk out when NFL players like Colin Kaepernick take a knee during the national anthem to protest our nation's inadequate response to racial inequities.
After the NBA superstar Stephen Curry told the media that he did not want to go to the White House to be honored by Trump, the President decided to take time from his busy day to tweet a withdrawal of the invitation.
It would be easy to see this as just one more trivial story about an immature president who watches too much television and has no control over his rhetorical impulses.
But it's much worse than that. Trump's desire to go after an African-American athlete who has been protesting our well-documented problems with race and criminal justice, or an African-American athlete who does not feel comfortable in the White House given the President's controversial positions on social issues, fit into a longer and troubling history of his capitalizing on the politics of racial division.....

No dummy it means he is just like us and is very offended by the kaepernicking of sour rich assholes who would never be happy no matter what he did.
I can’t wait for the societal blowup on these issues.
I love the fact that what was unmentionable is now not discussed but will be acted upon.
It’s high time there’s push back on the professional left agitated pro-sports PC activities.
Now these boys are going to find out their battle isn’t with the owners paying them, it’s going to be with the people in the stands.
That’s an entirely different game they can’t win.
The Karma Train's a-comin'.
Why does CNN not wright about the injustices of communism and socialism?
The only “Injustice” I see is paying these douche bags MILLIONS of dollars to throw a football and basketball around..THAT is the injustice..pay them 12 bucks an hour to do the same thing and watch them all quit
,,,,, fire the son of a bitch !
Why don’t they write about the injustice of forcing taxpaying citizens in these cities into paying for their 24 karat gold super stadiums that cost billions of dollars....only to be crapped on by these Power Fist throwing d-heads? I pay taxes for these buildings and then can’t even afford to buy a ticket into one of them. Let’s talk about injustice.
When will they write about all the blacks killing each other? BTW O.J. did it.
Why write about it when you can build upon it?
CNN is just working with the left to destroy western civilization which they hate.
And Colin Kaepernick is not an NFL player.
We all know that lesboron james, step on curry, descending colin krapperdik, roger goodell, and seattle seahag bennett love oj for having gotten away with the murder of two white people.
If Colin Kaepernick is so against âsocial injusticeâ how come he backed the murderous Castro regimeÂ
“Trump’s desire to go after an African-American athlete”
Oh the poor thing!
These protests are about black people saying “f-you, whitey” and daring anyone to say anything about it.
LeBron James went clubbing after Cleveland blew a 26-point fourth-quarter lead in an overtime loss to the Atlanta Hawks, then sat out the next game when the Cavs needed a win to obtain top seeding.
