Professional Athletes Are Absolutely Shredding Trump Today

Professional athletes in the NFL and NBA have finally had enough of Trump’s bullshit. They’re sick of his racism and divisiveness and attacks on their free speech. And a whole lot of them are speaking out about it.

On Friday night at a rally in Alabama, Donald Trump did what he does best. He pissed off a whole lot of people.

Trump decided to throw out some red meat to his base at the rally by spewing some not-so-subtle racism aimed at professional athletes. Trump went after Colin Kaepernick and other NFL players who have taken a knee during the national anthem in protest to racism and police violence.

He said to the cheering crowd,

“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘get that son of a bitch off the field right now! He is fired. He’s fired!'”

His comments drew a lot of backlash immediately. Then, on Saturday, Trump doubled down on his attack of the black players and their First Amendment rights.

And, as if it weren’t bad enough that he was starting a war with the NFL, Trump decided on Saturday morning to also go after NBA star Stephen Curry.

Curry’s team was invited to visit the White House after the Warriors won the championship. But, because of Trump’s behavior and rhetoric, Curry had decided not to go. Apparently, that really upset the man-child in the Oval.

Here’s some of the responses that Trump got from the athlete world on Saturday….

Then there’s the players themselves:
