I think it’s safe to say that Josh Hart isn’t a fan of the President.
On Monday, Donald Trump defended Kyle Rittenhouse, the teenager charged with killing two protesters at anti-racism protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin, last week. The very next day, he turned his attention to attacking NBA players for boycotting games over police brutality.
“People are tired of watching the highly political @NBA,” wrote Trump on Twitter. “Basketball ratings are WAY down, and they won’t be coming back. I hope football and baseball are watching and learning because the same thing will be happening to them. Stand tall for our Country and our Flag!!!”
New Orleans Pelicans guard Josh Hart saw that tweet and wasted zero timer bashing Trump right back.
Evan Fournier also responded:
Last week, NBA playoff games were postponed as players from the Milwaukee Bucks, Houston Rockets, Oklahoma City Thunder, Los Angeles Lakers, and Portland Trail Blazers chose not to play in response to the police shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
Among the football teams that canceled practice because of the shooting are the Chicago Bears, New York Jets, Green Bay Packers, Indianapolis Colts, Tennessee Titans, Denver Broncos, Arizona Cardinals, Los Angeles Chargers, and Washington Football Team.
MLB and NHL teams also canceled games as well in the wake of the shooting.
