Ben Simmons: Donald Trump is An ‘Idiot’ & A ‘D*ckhead’
Ben Simmons wasn’t even born in this country and even he is sick and tired of President Donald Trump.
The 21-year-old Australian born player was fired up during Philadelphia 76ers media day on Monday. He completely let loose on Donald Trump when asked about the U.S. President by reporters.
“I think he’s an idiot,” Simmons told FOX Sports News 500 during the Philadelphia 76ers’ media day Monday.
“If he were in Australia right now, a lot of people would call him a dickhead, and that’s how I personally feel.”
Last Friday, Donald Trump decided to fire up a Huntsville, Alabama crowd by mentioning the many NFL players kneeling during the Anthem. He referred to them as ‘sons of bitches’ and suggested that owners should fire them on the spot for disrespecting the flag.
Simmons believes comments like this shouldn’t ever come from the mouth of the commander in chief.
“Some of the comments he’s just made about players, the NFL, the anthem. Everyone respects America, and everyone thinks America is a great country, but he’s the wrong person to be in charge of it,” added Simmons.
“I think, as a man, you’re not supposed to be tweeting like that, saying remarks about women, what people should be doing, how you talk to leaders of other countries, and putting America in a situation where it doesn’t need to be like that.”
The former No. 1 overall pick in the 2016 draft continued:
“He just brings more anger and hatred to the U.S. It’s unneeded,” Simmons said.
“I think the U.S. is a great country. I love being here. I’m very appreciative of the job I’m in. I think he’s the wrong person to be in charge. He’s definitely not a leader.”
After missing his entire rookie year due to injury, Simmons is expected to finally see court time for the 76ers and get this ‘process’ going.
