Kevin McHale Gets Ripped For Being At A Trump Rally; Wife Deletes Acct After Her Terrible Comments (TWEETS)
Despite the outcry of fans across the country to keep politics out of sports, it continues and will continue to happen as more and more controversies arise.
Former Houston Rockets head coach Kevin McHale is just the latest to feel the wrath of his political affiliation when observers spotted the Boston Celtics great at a Donald Trump rally in Duluth on Wednesday.
The backlash was immediate, given the scope of what’s going on with immigrant children being separated from their families at the border and placed in cages.
I’d love to get definitive confirmation. But if Kevin McHale actually showed up to Trump’s rally in Duluth today with everything that is happening now and what Trump’s done and stands for, yeah he’s cancelled. pic.twitter.com/A99QSV56s4

McHale has strong ties to the Timberwolves, who play in Minnesota. He was also born in Minnesota. There has yet to be official confirmation.
To make matters that much worse, his wife, who is a devout Trump supporter, jumped on Twitter and made the situation go from bad to despicable after many spotted terrible comments by her in regards to the detailed children, among other things.
She would soon delete her entire account.
Kevin McHale is extremely stupid for attending a public Trump event. That, as much as his politics, is why he should never work in the NBA again

Slap a scarlet letter on Kevin McHale and anybody else still supporting Trump after three years of this BS.

Woke up to see Kevin McHale trending, was like “ah man, did he pass?” It’s much worse….he’s a trump supporter.
He’s done in the NBA. If I’m a current superstar, there’s no way in hell I’m ever working with him

If you’re looking for a different Kevin McHale to support, one who most definitely would never attend a Trump rally or align himself with racists, etc., I’m still here. 👋

Kevin McHale’s wife, Lynn McHale, was trying to make black lung a thing again while also arguing the child separation stuff wasn’t so bad, but Lynn decided to rage quit & deleted her twitter account when people realized she and her husband are Trump morons.

That Kevin McHale attended a Trump rally should surprise no one. His wife is one of the bigger MAGA trolls on Twitter and has been for a really long time.

Here’s what we know:
Donald Trump is a vile racist.
Kevin McHale attended a Trump ‘hate rally’ in Duluth.
Draw your own conclusions about the character of Kevin McHale.

Hey @NBATV and @NBAonTNT, you might want to check into Kevin McHale’s whereabouts. If this is him supporting the white supremacist currently occupying the White House, I won’t be watching any broadcasts he is involved in. Based on his wife’s deleted tweets, sure seems like him. https://t.co/BoFdxnRfz4

One of my childhood idols, Kevin McHale, just kicked six year old me right in the gut and I feel it 32 years later. With interest.
Fuck you, Kevin. https://t.co/6DTGsp3YyV

Since his firing from the Houston Rockets, McHale has been serving as an on-air analyst for NBA TV. It remains to be seen if McHale’s appearance at the Trump rally will have any impact on his current gig at NBA TV, or if it will affect his potential coaching career.
