These whiny overpaid professional athletes need to grow up and stop acting like petulant children. It’s simply stunning that they can’t comprehend why the President and the majority of Americans refuse to support their disrespect for our flag. When they start acting like Americans and respecting our flag again, perhaps they’ll get an invitation to the White House and perhaps the people who stopped watching them play will support them again. Sadly, it doesn’t appear that either of these things are going to happen anytime soon.
LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers and Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors have both said their teams have no interest in a visit.
Trump told reporters on Friday: “I didn’t invite LeBron James, and I didn’t invite Steph Curry. We’re not going to invite either team.”
Trump canceled a visit by the Philadelphia Eagles to commemorate their Super Bowl win after most of the players decided they’d skip it.
But Trump said he’d be happy to host the Washington Capitals, who just won the Stanley Cup.
He said: “If they want to be here, it’s the greatest place on Earth. I’m here. If they don’t want to be here, I don’t want them.” –NBA
Do you have any comment on Trump uninviting the Eagles after most of the black players decided not to go?
LeBron answered, ‘It’s typical of him. I’m not surprised. Imean, I know that no matter who wins this series no one wants the invite anyhow, so, it won’t be Golden State or Cleveland going.”
Lebron went on to say he hopes the decision the Eagles made to snub the President’s invitation won’t hurt them. LeBron continued to talk about all of the sacrifices the players (with multi-million dollar contracts) make when they practice and play the game they love for a living. When is the last time LeBron talked about the sacrifices our troops make when they leave their families and go overseas to fight a war on terror in 100 degree weather? When’s the last time anyone heard crybaby LeBron James talk about the sacrifices coal workers make every day when they go deep into a mine and work their tails off to provide energy for LeBron’s multiple multi-million dollar mansions?
Poor, deprived LeBron, will he ever cease to be a victim?
Watch Steph Curry explain why he’s not going. He clearly has no idea what the hell he’s even protesting by not going to the White House. When they asked Curry to explain what statement he would be making by not accepting President Trump’s offer to come to the White House, Curry was clearly stumped, saying, it would be “because of the things he’s said and because of the things he hasn’t said.” After Curry spends almost a minute fumbling to explain actual reasons he won’t go the White House if his team wins the NBA championship, he admits that if the team doesn’t go to White House, that it probably won’t make a difference.
The balls in your court…either stand up for America and for our flag, or don’t complain when no one wants to come to watch you play.
