Donald Trump Proves — Again — That He Truly Is A World-Class Asshole

It's almost as if we should have known exactly what we were getting when we elected an emotionally-stunted, Cheeto-tinted whiny baby to the White House… Sometime in the last few hours, mad that the team didn't want to come to the White House to worship him like so many of his mindless followers, Donald Trump officially [...] It's almost as if we should have known exactly what we were getting when we elected an emotionally-stunted, Cheeto-tinted whiny baby to the White House... Sometime in the last few hours, mad that the team didn't want to come to the White House to worship him like so many of his mindless followers, Donald Trump officially disinvited Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors from coming for their traditional meet-and-greet ceremony earned after winning the NBA Championship! HOW. FUCKING. PETTY!!!! Related: John McCain Finally Decided To Do Something Good Trump just officially dis-invited star Steph Curry and the team, citing that they'd been so openly critical of him as President, and the Cheeto-in-Chief also included a message: "Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team. Stephen Curry is hesitating, therefore the invitation is withdrawn." LOLz!!! So triggered!!! Other sports personalities -- including ESPN anchor Jemele Hill, who was also a target of Trump's rage when she made anti-Donald comments on her Twitter account earlier this month, got into the spirit and tweeted about the dis-invitation (below): Hey @StephenCurry30, welcome to the club bro 😂 — Jemele Hill (@jemelehill) September 23, 2017 Trump has now attacked Jemele Hill, Colin Kaepernick, & Stephen Curry.

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.

Trump Uninvites Golden State Warriors to White House, Team Will Instead Promote Equality in DC

The Golden State Warriors are speaking out after President Trump uninvited the team from a visit to the White House.

[...] 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.].....»»

Kim Jong Un Issues Unprecedented Response To "Dotard" Donald Trump"s Threats To "Totally Destroy" North Korea!

More trash talk from two of the world's lamest leaders. In his speech on the U.N. floor on Tuesday, Donald Trump threatened to "totally destroy" North Korea if the U.S. was "forced to defend itself." Related: South Park Skewers Trump's Handling Of North Korea Well, after weeks of launching threats in response to the country's missile tests, Trump's remarks finally got a reaction out of Kim Jong Un. The biggest takeaway? The supreme leader can throw some shade! Oh, and Trump might have finally pissed him off to the point of nuclear war. In an official statement released Thursday, Kim called Trump " a frightened dog" and a "gangster fond of playing with fire." He wrote: "Far from making remarks of any persuasive power that can be viewed to be helpful to defusing tension, [Trump] made unprecedented rude nonsense one has never heard from any of his predecessors... A frightened dog barks louder." Wow. It's sad when a dictator starving his country can make the president look like a childish fool. But the more they argue, the clearer it's becoming that the two are the same type of beast. Like Trump, Kim is ready to fight (nuclear) fire with fire -- and apparently has a penchant for teaching fun new words to his people. Related: Trump Blocked Stage-4 Cancer Patient After She Criticized Him In his recent statement, Kim repeatedly referred to Trump as a "dotard" -- an oldschool term for a senile or feeble-minded elderly person -- adding: "I will make the man holding the prerogative of the supreme command in the U.S. pay dearly for his speech calling for totally destroying [North Korea]... I will surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged U.S. dotard with fire." Whoa. And we thought SNL was savage with the Trump digs... South Korea's government noted that Kim's response, written in the first person, was the first such direct address to the world by any North Korean leader. Hours after Kim's unprecedented comments, North Korea's foreign minister reportedly said the country may test a hydrogen bomb in the Pacific Ocean to fulfill Kim's vow to take the "highest-level" action against the U.S. Trump, however, is just getting started with "testing" Kim's patience. He tweeted on Friday: Kim Jong Un of North Korea, who is obviously a madman who doesn't mind starving or killing his people, will be tested like never before! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 22, 2017 Trump also announced on Thursday he is planning to sign an executive order that would put sanctions on individuals, companies, and financial institutions that do business with North Korea -- or, as Trump put it, "this criminal rogue regime." The president has made it perfectly clear his mission was North Korea's "complete denuclearization." But by issuing threats instead of solutions, Trump is putting many in danger just to force the bad guys to do bad guy things. Thoughts?? [Image via KCNA/Becher/WENN.].....»»

Everything You Need To Know About Anthony Scaramucci"s Wildly Uncensored Rant About Trump"s White House Staff!

Anthony Scaramucci is really taking D.C. by storm… and by "storm" we mean category five hurricane. The newly-hired White House communications director stirred the pot on Thursday after an explosive and vulgar interview with Ryan Lizza of The New Yorker, during which he took shots at Reince Priebus and Steve Bannon (who both opposed Scaramucci's hiring [...] Anthony Scaramucci is really taking D.C. by storm... and by "storm" we mean category five hurricane. The newly-hired White House communications director stirred the pot on Thursday after an explosive and vulgar interview with Ryan Lizza of The New Yorker, during which he took shots at Reince Priebus and Steve Bannon (who both opposed Scaramucci's hiring last week). To catch you up, The Mooch is on a crusade to stop "leaks" coming from inside the White House, and he's willing to take down anyone who gets in his way -- including his own colleagues. After news got out about his dinner at the White House with Donald Trump, Melania Trump, Sean Hannity, and former Fox News executive Bill Shine, Scaramucci called Lizza to find out who leaked the information. He later suggested it was Priebus, who he described as "a fucking paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac" who has been trying to "cock-block" him for the past six months. Aside from the fact that our country is ran by frat boys, this is a good time to mention that Scaramucci never told Lizza this interview was off the record. Rookie mistake. Related: Blake Lively Wrote The Book On Killing Trolls With Kindness! Here are a few highlights from the expletive-filled conversation: -- Scaramucci threatened to "eliminate everyone in the comms team and we'll start over" if Lizza didn't offer up his source: "They'll all be fired by me. I fired one guy the other day. I have three to four people I'll fire tomorrow. I'll get to the person who leaked that to you. Reince Priebus -- if you want to leak something -- he'll be asked to resign very shortly." -- The financier said he's not interested in media attention, unlike other senior officials (who are also very flexible?): "I'm not Steve Bannon, I'm not trying to suck my own cock. I'm not trying to build my own brand off the fucking strength of the President. I'm here to serve the country." OK, we 100% didn't need that image in our heads. -- The former corporate exec tried to guilt the journalist into coughing up his source by questioning his patriotism: "You're an American citizen, this is a major catastrophe for the American country. So I'm asking you as an American patriot to give me a sense of who leaked it." Reminder: this is about a TWEET that Lizza sent about a DINNER. -- Scaramucci suggested he had more info about other White House aides, and that there are "lie detectors" involved, by saying: "O.K., the Mooch showed up a week ago. This is going to get cleaned up very shortly, O.K.? Because I nailed these guys. I've got digital fingerprints on everything they've done through the F.B.I. and the fucking Department of Justice." One thing's for sure, Mooch's loyalty to Trump, although probably misguided, remains steadfast: "What I want to do is I want to fucking kill all the leakers and I want to get the President's agenda on track so we can succeed for the American people." Anthony ended the phone call by telling Lizza: "Yeah, let me go, though, because I've gotta start tweeting some shit to make this guy crazy." That's when he sent out via Twitter in a now-deleted message: "In light of the leak of my financial info which is a felony. I will be contacting @FBI and the @TheJusticeDept #swamp @Reince45." We're sure Trump is somewhere (watching Fox & Friends, probably) beaming with pride. Anyway, you should totally read the full conversation (yes, there's more) HERE, but let's get on with the aftermath. Understandably, Lizza's report went viral in a matter of minutes. He responded to the outrage by defending his "colorful" language: I sometimes use colorful language. I will refrain in this arena but not give up the passionate fight for @realDonaldTrump's agenda. #MAGA — Anthony Scaramucci (@Scaramucci) July 27, 2017 I made a mistake in trusting in a reporter. It won't happen again. — Anthony Scaramucci (@Scaramucci) July 28, 2017 Sean Spicer's replacement Sarah Huckabee Sanders tried to clear the firestorm that ensued by telling reporters she hopes Scaramucci can reel in the gossip, especially about fellow Trump administration staffers: "Anthony has put out a statement that has made pretty clear that sometimes he is a passionate guy and he has made pretty clear that sometimes he has let that passion get the better of him. I don't anticipate he will do it again." Adding of his threats to "kill" the entire comms team: "In terms of people's safety, I certainly hate that somebody feels that way, but I have worked with an incredible team over the last six months. We have a great group of people. I love coming to work every day. I consider it a privilege. I certainly feel very safe in the building, and happy to be here." We certainly can't be the only ones who think this shit is b-a-n-a-n-a-s, so let us know your thoughts in the comments (below)! [Image via Ron Sachs/CNP/Media Punch.].....»»
