Kobe Bryant: Trump “Can’t Possibly” Make America Great Again Because He “Inspires Hatred”
It’s been very busy in the world of sports over the last 24 hours, and it has nothing to do with the play on the field or on the court.
During a rally in Huntsville, Alabama, President Donald Trump decided to speak out against the NFL and the many players who continue to stage some type of protest during the playing of the national anthem. He says that the owners of those teams should immediately take the kneeling players off the field and fire those ‘sons of bitches’ right then and there for disrespecting the flag.
Retired Los Angeles Lakers great Kobe Bryant had heard enough. He added his name to a ever-growing list of players who have spoken out since that rally.
On Saturday, the Black Mamba tweeted and deleted this:
“A #POTUS who’s [sic] name alone creates division and anger. Who’s [sic] words inspire dissension and hatred can’t possibly ‘Make America Great Again’,” Bryant tweeted.
After that rally, Trump took to Twitter early Saturday morning and rescinded his invitation to the Golden State Warriors to visit him at the White House. In a Tweet he stated, “Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team,” Trump tweeted. “Stephen Curry is hesitating, therefore invitation is withdrawn!”
Curry, along with several of his teammates, had already stated they don’t plan on visiting the White House. That includes head coach Steve Kerr.
