Stephen Curry is hesitating, therefore the invitation is withdrawn." LOLz!!! So triggered!!!

Donald Trump VS The NFL — Everything You Need To Know!

What could the President of the United States of America possibly have to gain by fighting with the NFL?? Well, when you're talking about Donald Trump, there actually are a couple good reasons. (And by "good" we mean horrific.) Let's rewind. Related: Like John Oliver Did Last Night For Megyn Kelly — OUCH! On Friday night, Trump was holding [...] What could the President of the United States of America possibly have to gain by fighting with the NFL?? Well, when you're talking about Donald Trump, there actually are a couple good reasons. (And by "good" we mean horrific.) Let's rewind. Related: Like John Oliver Did Last Night For Megyn Kelly -- OUCH! On Friday night, Trump was holding a rally in Alabama -- yes, our sitting president who has been in office less than a year regularly holds campaign-style rallies to inflate his ego -- in which he made some inflammatory remarks about protesting football players. In short, he said NFL owners should fire the players who kneel during the National Anthem. And he said it in the crudest way: "Wouldn't you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out! He's fired. He's fired!'" Yep. Our president used an expletive in a public speech attacking private citizens who are peacefully protesting. Though he didn't mention Colin Kaepernick by name, he is at the vanguard of this controversy. So his mom responded to the "son of a bitch" comment with an AMAZING quip: Guess that makes me a proud bitch! — Teresa Kaepernick (@B4IleaveU) September 23, 2017 It should be noted in that same speech he also rattled off the opinion that penalties for hitting too hard, installed to protect players from concussions, are "ruining the game." Shortly after this, Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry was so offended by this (and presumably everything that came before) he decided not to attend the traditional visit by the NBA champs to the White House. In response, Trump officially, publicly disinvited him. CLICK HERE FOR MORE! Guy. Everyone knows you can't un-invite someone after they said they weren't coming! It turns you from a loser into an ANGRY loser. Even middle school student body presidents wouldn't make that mistake. Damn. Or as LeBron James put it: U bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain't going! So therefore ain't no invite. Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up! — LeBron James (@KingJames) September 23, 2017 Ha! But Trump had moved on from a feud with a specific player. He decided he wanted to take on the entire NFL. On Saturday, Drumpf doubled down: If a player wants the privilege of making millions of dollars in the NFL,or other leagues, he or she should not be allowed to disrespect.... — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 23, 2017 ...our Great American Flag (or Country) and should stand for the National Anthem. If not, YOU'RE FIRED. Find something else to do! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 23, 2017 If you haven't seen it, longtime sports journalist Bob Costas gave an epic response to this argument, pointing out that peaceful protest and dissent are some of the most patriotic things you can do in a free country. CLICK HERE FOR MORE After NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said Trump's comments showed an "unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL, our great game and all of our players," Trump responded: Roger Goodell of NFL just put out a statement trying to justify the total disrespect certain players show to our country.Tell them to stand! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 23, 2017 On Sunday, he actually encouraged his followers to boycott watching the games: If NFL fans refuse to go to games until players stop disrespecting our Flag & Country, you will see change take place fast. Fire or suspend! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 24, 2017 This is clearly on very shaky ground ethically -- the POTUS directing people to boycott a private American business -- and he's already had a complaint filed against him with the Office of Government Ethics. Oh, and if you're like us and know to look for the tweet from Barack Obama's presidency that proves Trump is being a total hypocrite about this, look no further: President should not be telling the Washington Redskins to change their name-our country has far bigger problems! FOCUS on them,not nonsense — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 8, 2013 Every time. So on Sunday when it came time for football players to stand for the National Anthem, all eyes were on their reactions, which... varied. At latest count more than 200 players league-wide didn't stand for the anthem. Trump's friend Tom Brady doesn't have his back. The Pittsburg Steelers didn't show up on the field at all! CLICK HERE FOR MORE Trump was so unhappy about all this he may even have snuck a lewd gesture onto live TV. You can decide that one for yourself. Trump was undeterred. Obviously. But on Monday morning, he did tweet a clarification, as once again he didn't like being called out as a racist: The issue of kneeling has nothing to do with race. It is about respect for our Country, Flag and National Anthem. NFL must respect this! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 25, 2017 Except it DOES have to do with race. You can't say the intent of these players has nothing to do with race when they're flat-out saying it's about race. It's about injustice along racial lines, specifically when it comes to police brutality. Police keep getting away with killing unarmed black citizens. But the surge in players kneeling this Sunday was in unity AGAINST Trump's awful comments attacking players and their freedom of speech. We know because THAT'S WHAT THEY'RE SAYING ABOUT IT! And they aren't alone. Many celebrities have come out in support of the protesting. CLICK HERE FOR MORE So with all of this support on the other side, for the NFL, for freedom of speech, for African Americans looking for justice, why would Trump take the position he's taking? Two reasons: 1. His Base We already know by Trump's inability to condemn the neo-Nazis in Charlottesville, equating the white supremacists with those counter-protesting, that Trump is unwilling to go against his base. Let's be honest here. Trump ran on a platform of hate. He painted Mexicans as criminals as he threw his hat in the ring. He regularly fans the flames of Islamophobia. His wall, aside from being completely idiotic, is as xenophobic a policy as we've ever heard. The first time he even dipped his toe into the political world was to declare Obama wasn't really an American. So his core supporters, the ones he's courted from the beginning, are racists. And he can't lose them. They're all he has left. Besides the cowardly Republican party that let him hijack them we mean. 2. Ego Trump KNOWS so much of this is about him. He's the one who is embarrassing and demeaning our country, he's the one making us all look bad, he's the one emboldening Nazis. It's 2017, and we have a Nazi problem! Let that soak in. He's making every problem with our country worse. So as the leader of the United States, he takes it as a personal slight when players kneel during its anthem, when they don't stand for the flag. And we know how he reacts to criticism. And he's petty enough to start a war with an organization like the NFL over it. So there you go. [Image via Instagram.].....»»

Not long after they came under fire for a controversial fantasy football sketch following the Charlottesville violence, they're facing way more heat for their latest decision.

Lee, the Confederate general. Related: Donald Trump Blames "Crooked Media" For America's Social & Political Divide After the news leaked, ESPN released a statement via spokesman Derek Volner: "We collectively made the decision with Robert to switch games as the tragic events in Charlottesville were unfolding, simply because of the coincidence of his name.

Omarosa Manigualt Did NOT Leave The White House On Good Terms — Juicy Details On Her Firing HERE!

As we've been reporting this week, Omarosa Manigault resigned was most definitely fired from her job in the White House by Chief of Staff John Kelly, but that is so far from the end of the story that it's almost ridiculous. She has a LOT to tell and it looks like she may be positioning herself for a tell-all book, or something. Get your popcorn. Related: Trump Got His OWN Birthday Wrong On Absentee Ballot It all started this week when Omarosa was told that her husband no longer had clearance to attend the White House staff Christmas party, according to an exclusive report in the Daily Mail. That led directly to what sources are calling an "epic showdown" with Kelly, in which she blew up at him, swearing and yelling, and pretty much sealing her fate. A source said: "When she got word that her husband could not attend the Christmas party because his security clearance under her had been canceled already, she was outraged. She confronted General Kelly about it and that's when the explosive altercation happened between them. She was embarrassed by that and it sent her over the top." The thing is, though, that Kelly was sick of Omarosa's "abusive treatment" of other senior officials long before the blow-up this week, and he was already in the process of getting around to firing her... the Christmas party blow-up just pushed him to do it immediately on Tuesday night. Being a relatively honorable man, Kelly agreed to let Omarosa say she "resigned" and that her last day would be January 20 -- one full year of working in the White House. But Manigault and Kelly did not part on good terms; and in fact, literally no other senior official in the White House liked her, either! Oops!!! While Kelly saw Manigault as a "tyrant," with an "air of entitlement," other senior officials also had a strong distaste for Omarosa. Related: Omarosa Weds At Trump International Hotel! One source revealed: "The only reason Omarosa survived Reince Priebus, Steve Bannon and Sean Spicer is because the president protected her. They all had issues with her at one point or another, but despite their gripes about her and their desires for her to be let go, Trump always had her back." LOLz!! Of course Trump had her back -- she's a reality TV snake oil salesman just like The Donald himself! Birds of a feather flock together... well, at least in most cases they do. Speaking of Trump, Omarosa tried to go see him after Kelly laid down the hammer on her White House career, but she was prevented from going into the President' living quarters and eventually hauled off the grounds of the White House, allegedly being physically removed from the space (though Omarosa denies that this happened). More from a source on her removal (below): "This is a woman who showed up at the White House with her entire bridal party for an unplanned, unauthorized wedding day photo shoot. So, imagine her outrage when she was told that her husband could not come to the White House that evening for one of the holiday parties, she was pissed to say the least ... She became disgruntled and she tripped the alarms [trying to get to Trump] and she started throwing obscenities." Oh, Omarosa... Never change!!! Sounds like she's starting to prepare for that inevitable tell-all book coming in 3... 2... 1... [Image via WENN.].....»»

Start normalizing the far-right in the U.K.! The president shined a spotlight on yet another anti-Muslim sensationalist on Wednesday by retweeting multiple videos from one of the wacky leaders of Britain First, an anti-immigrant group based in the U.K. The now-deleted videos -- titled "Muslim migrants beat up Dutch boy on crutches!", "Muslim destroys statue of Virgin Mary!", and "Islamist mob pushes teenage boy off roof and beats him to death!" -- were originally shared by ultranationalist Jayda Fransen, whose other videos include her going on the streets of Britain with a big ol' cross to provoke Muslims into some type of altercation. Related: Trump Is LOVING Matt Lauer's Firing & Misconduct Scandal Fransen, who has been previously charged in the U.K. with "religious aggravated harassment," was overjoyed by the free press POTUS brought to her page and party.

It seems my Christian cross really offends them! pic.twitter.com/KJOpzXBqDN — Jayda Fransen (@JaydaBF) March 16, 2017 Well, we can't say we're surprised Fransen caught Trump's attention -- though several British officials were. Multiple British politicians reacted with outrage over Trump's apparent endorsement of Britain First, which many locals consider to be a hate group. London Mayor Sadiq Khan said: "Britain First is a vile, hate-fueled organization whose views should be condemned, not amplified." Too late for that. In fact, Fransen is already being interviewed by the BBC and CBS after being put under Trump's spotlight. Ugh. Labour Party lawmaker Chuka Umunna was one of the many politicians who demanded the British government rescind its invitation to Trump to visit the country, tweeting: Donald Trump is promoting the propaganda of a racist far right group. His invite to visit the UK in 2018 should be immediately withdrawn. pic.twitter.com/kgjbrG4XxQ — Chuka Umunna (@ChukaUmunna) November 29, 2017 As for the extreme content Trump retweeted, Britain's Press Association found that most of the videos were originally shared without any context. Video: Melania Trump's White House Christmas Decorations Look Scary AF! According to the BBC, the video purporting to show a boy thrown off a roof was taken in Egypt in 2013. The video of a man destroying a Virgin Mary statue was posted to YouTube four years ago. The video featuring a Dutch boy being attacked was shared to a Dutch website earlier this year. Two men were charged in connection with the incident, but no reports of the incident mentioned the religion of the assailants. We hope this is the last we hear of Jayda Fransen and Britain First, but unfortunately this feels like only the beginning. [Image via CNN/Twitter.].....»»

[...] The Golden State Warriors are speaking out after President Trump uninvited the team from a visit to the White House. Championship sports teams are often invited to the White House for a visit with the president, but Stephen Curry said he was not interested in meeting Trump following the Warriors’ win in the NBA Finals. “Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team. Stephen Curry is hesitating, therefore invitation is withdrawn!” Trump tweeted on Saturday morning (September 23). While the team as a whole had not made a decision as a whole about visiting the White House, a statement was released saying the team will not visit following Trump‘s remarks. “While we intended to meet as a team at the first opportunity we had this morning to collaboratively discuss a potential visit to the White House, we accept that President Trump has made it clear that we are not invited,” the Warriors said in a statement. “We believe there is nothing more American than our citizens having the right to express themselves freely on matters important to them. We’re disappointed that we did not have an opportunity during this process to share our views or have open dialogue on issues impacting our communities that we felt would be important to raise.” “In lieu of a visit to the White House, we have decided that we’ll constructively use our trip to the nation’s capital in February to celebrate equality, diversity and inclusion — the values that we embrace as an organization,” the statement added.

The former Breitbart News leader was said to be the real brains behind getting Trump in the White House, but later became too influential for POTUS' liking. Not only was Bannon pushing Trump to follow through on his widely-criticized campaign promises, the media vet was reportedly clashing with top White House advisers -- specifically, Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner. The real kicker for Trump, though, may have not been Bannon's link to the alt-right amid a white supremacy uprising -- but actually, his recent comments that there was "no military solution" to the North Korean crisis! So, does that mean Bannon got canned because he didn't want to unleash "fire and fury" on North Korea? Should we be more concerned now that he's gone?

Steve Bannon Says He"s "Going To War" For Donald Trump — But The "Presidency Is Over"

If you were happy Steve Bannon was out of the White House, you should probably sit down before reading his first comments after leaving his post as Donald Trump's chief strategist. In his first interview, he declared: "If there's any confusion out there, let me clear it up: I'm leaving the White House and going to war [...] If you were happy Steve Bannon was out of the White House, you should probably sit down before reading his first comments after leaving his post as Donald Trump's chief strategist. In his first interview, he declared: "If there's any confusion out there, let me clear it up: I'm leaving the White House and going to war for Trump against his opponents -- on capitol hill, in the media, and in corporate America." We've been hearing he was straight up fired, so maybe he's trying to save face? Photos: Everyone Trump Has Thrown Under The Bus But really, this isn't that unexpected. We mean, even if they disagree on some foreign policy, they're still both seen as pro-corporate racists. It's not like Bannon was going to go work for Kamala Harris. So how does Bannon plan to serve Trump? By returning to his alt-right platform, Breitbart News. He told The Weekly Standard he had already decided with new Chief of Staff John Kelly that he was leaving nearly two weeks ago to get back to Breitbart where, he says, he can do more damage to the country: "I feel jacked up. Now I'm free. I've got my hands back on my weapons. Someone said, ‘it's Bannon the Barbarian.' I am definitely going to crush the opposition... I can fight better on the outside. I can't fight too many Democrats on the inside like I can on the outside." Scary stuff. Video: CNN's Brooke Baldwin Had To Take A Water Break Just To Recount Trump's Past Month! The silver lining is the reason Bannon gives for his departure, which is that Trump is failing to follow through on his disgusting dreams. "The Trump presidency that we fought for, and won, is over. We still have a huge movement, and we will make something of this Trump presidency. But that presidency is over. It'll be something else. And there'll be all kinds of fights, and there'll be good days and bad days, but that presidency is over." Um. Good? "The path forward on things like economic nationalism and immigration, and his ability to kind of move freely . . . I just think his ability to get anything done—particularly the bigger things, like the wall, the bigger, broader things that we fought for, it's just gonna be that much harder." That DEFINITELY sounds good. As does Bannon's belief that moderate Republicans are about to abandon Trump en masse. But even if Trump starts to get sightly more moderate without Bannon to hold back the people trying to hold POTUS back, don't forget he is in fact a horrible racist underneath it all: "His natural tendency—and I think you saw it this week on Charlottesville—his actual default position is the position of his base, the position that got him elected. I think you're going to see a lot of constraints on that. I think it'll be much more conventional." Small victories, y'all. Small victories... [Image via Instagram.].....»»

Donald Trump Uses 280 Characters To Whine About Story Revealing His INSANE Cable News, Diet Coke, & Twitter Habits

Most of the "fake news" Donald Trump has been attacking lately is factual errors in reporting on the Russia scandal and ongoing Mueller investigation. Even if those stories are quickly corrected, any mistakes serve as fuel for Drumpf's war against the press. But don't forget that the President is a very small man, and this fight comes [...] Most of the "fake news" Donald Trump has been attacking lately is factual errors in reporting on the Russia scandal and ongoing Mueller investigation. Even if those stories are quickly corrected, any mistakes serve as fuel for Drumpf's war against the press. But don't forget that the President is a very small man, and this fight comes first and foremost from a fear of people not taking him seriously. Video: Watch Trump Creeps On A Woman In Vintage Commercial Footage! After all, the more people actually learn about him, the worse he looks. That's the problem with being an awful, crooked simpleton. So it's no wonder Trump had a meltdown in response to a mind-blowing profile in The New York Times this weekend, which revealed he consistently watches 4-8 hours of TV and drinks "a dozen Diet Cokes" every day. See some of the most shocking excerpts AND Dumb Donald's response (below)! Trump The TV Addict "Before taking office, Mr. Trump told top aides to think of each presidential day as an episode in a television show in which he vanquishes rivals. People close to him estimate that Mr. Trump spends at least four hours a day, and sometimes as much as twice that, in front of a television, sometimes with the volume muted, marinating in the no-holds-barred wars of cable news and eager to fire back." Did Trump's Lawyer Really Write That Obstruction Tweet? "When three former campaign advisers were indicted or pleaded guilty this fall, Ty Cobb, the White House lawyer handling the investigation, urged the president not to respond. If he did, it would only elevate the story. Mr. Trump, however, could not help himself... By Sunday morning, with news shows consumed by Mr. Flynn's case, the president grew angry and fired off a series of tweets excoriating Mrs. Clinton and the F.B.I., tweets that several advisers told him were problematic and needed to stop, according to a person briefed on the discussion." Diet Coke Fiend "The ammunition for his Twitter war is television. No one touches the remote control except Mr. Trump and the technical support staff — at least that's the rule. During meetings, the 60-inch screen mounted in the dining room may be muted, but Mr. Trump keeps an eye on scrolling headlines. What he misses he checks out later on what he calls his "Super TiVo," a state-of-the-art system that records cable news. Watching cable, he shares thoughts with anyone in the room, even the household staff he summons via a button for lunch or for one of the dozen Diet Cokes he consumes each day." Trump's Work Day "Mr. Kelly is trying, quietly and respectfully, to reduce the amount of free time the president has for fiery tweets by accelerating the start of his workday. Mr. Priebus also tried, with only modest success, to encourage Mr. Trump to arrive by 9 or 9:30 a.m." Eesh! Democrat or Republican, EVERYONE should be a little freaked out by this information. We're talking about the POTUS here! And he can't get to work by 9:30? He watches sometimes EIGHT HOURS of cable news a day? TWELVE DIET COKES??? How is he even standing?? His off-the-rail speeches are starting to make more sense... Video: Trump Accusers Demand Congressional Probe Into Alleged Sexual Misconduct! So of course Trump had to respond (exactly as one who read the article might expect), on Twitter: Another false story, this time in the Failing @nytimes, that I watch 4-8 hours of television a day - Wrong! Also, I seldom, if ever, watch CNN or MSNBC, both of which I consider Fake News. I never watch Don Lemon, who I once called the "dumbest man on television!" Bad Reporting. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 11, 2017 Just real quick, some reasons for not believing this is "bad reporting." 1. We have plenty of circumstantial evidence of his TV habits; his tweets that seem apropos of nothing can usually be traced directly to the subjects being discussed on Fox & Friends or other cable news shows -- including Don Lemon, which the article claims he "hate-watches." 2. The information is not supposition; it's based on the accounts of "60 advisers, associates, friends and members of Congress." 3. The article was written by Maggie Haberman, Glenn Thrush, and Peter Baker, who have better access to Trump and the White House than any other reporters alive. Trump keeps calling it the "failing NY Times", but he gives extensive interviews with these three reporters every few months, including April and July of this year. Then again, maybe he'll say that was faked too. As the article tells us: "Mr. Trump's insistence on defining his own reality — his repeated claims, for example, that he actually won the popular vote — is immutable and has had a "numbing effect" on people who work with him, said Tony Schwartz, his ghostwriter on The Art of the Deal." That sound like "Fake News" to anyone? [Image via Kento Nara/Future Image/WENN.].....»»
