Stevie Wonder Takes To Both Knees After Trump's Comments

The Golden State Warriors were all smiles meeting then President Barack Obama after winning the NBA championship in 2015

He's unifying the previously disconnected and energizing the formerly apathetic. DeMaurice Smith, the Executive Director of the NFL Players Association tweeted a brief statement Saturday aimed at President Trump. "Stephen Curry is hesitating, therefore invitation is withdrawn!" he wrote.

"That's not what leaders do", Curry said after practice Saturday. "And we're going to continue to fight for our right to be human beings".

In the last two days, President Donald Trump has stepped angrily into pro sports with comments and tweets suggesting NFL players should be fired for not standing during the national anthem; deriding NFL rules on player safety as ruining football; and recinding a popular NBA player's invitation to visit the White House.

"I support Commissioner Adam Silver, the National Basketball Association, its players and all those who wish to exercise their right to free speech". I'm embarrassed because he said the speech in Alabama and got a rousing reception when he said those things. Mining the misplaced rage of his audience, the classy president said, "Wouldn't you love to see one of these National Football League owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, 'Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. he is fired'". "Great team", Trump said.

The tweet is likely in response to a story by Fox & Friends that aired Saturday morning. On Saturday morning, Trump tweeted that National Basketball Association star Stephen Curry is not welcome at the White House. Though it was fairly certain they would not, they left open the slightest possibility. "No White House, but a handsome Pink Hotel + plenty of sunshine". If I got a chance to sit with the president I'd say 'We're all concerned about police brutality. What is also telling is that nobody from Golden State has voiced any surprise with the president's actions to go this route by personally addressing the situation.


And all hell broke loose.

The Warriors, meanwhile, said in a statement they would plan their own trip to Washington instead of going to the White House, making the visit a celebration of "equality, diversity and inclusion". "He's fired. He's fired!'" Trump said at the rally.

Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank in February called Trump a "real asset" to the USA during an interview with CNBC.

Trump has fired upon every athlete in America.

"It's a shame and disgrace when you have the President of the U.S. calling citizens of the country sons of a b******", Minnesota Vikings running back Bishop Sankey wrote on Twitter. "My cousin. she brought that to me. The owners may have donated $7.25 million to his inauguration fund, but just as that won't stop the president to call for a mass rejection of a major American business, it doesn't mean they truly respect him".
