Blame Trump: Deadspin Says Former Prez Stopping Lakers From Visiting Biden
Donald Trump has left the presidency, but the so-called “white supremacist” has been accused of preventing reigning NBA champions from visiting the White House. This is the stupid claim by Deadspin hate dealer Carron J. Phillips, who blames Trump for defending champions Los Angeles Lakers from visiting President Joe Biden.
Phillips called Trump the “white supremacist who forever merged politics and sport” (if you don’t count “Basketball Jones” Barack Obama, who hires NBA players for Obamacare). And Phillips claims that the effects of Trump’s time in the Oval Office are still influencing American traditions:
“Trump is why it’s been more than 1,620 days since the NBA champions visited the White House. … The 2020 Lakers should be the first to meet President Biden. However, due to the Trump administration’s repeated mistakes in planning a plan to deal with a global pandemic, ESPN reports that planning conflicts and COVID-19 protocols are preventing the Lakers from visiting during their time in DC if they later play in the wizards this month. ”
LeBron James, Steph Curry, Megan Rapinoe and other bright athletes struggled with Trump during his presidency and refused to visit him. And Phillips told us that Trump couldn’t understand why many athletes and teams didn’t go to the White House to be used as “props in a photo op for a man who represented hatred, cruelty and reckless behavior.”
Phillips also says the presidents’ tradition of hosting championship sports teams “has become more of a burden than an honor under Trump”. It was not a burden on the many championship teams and Olympians who made the White House a priority instead of destroying conservative politics and staying home.
In reality, President Trump had a lot of help in not getting multiple championship teams. Many said they would not attend, so they were not invited. Some were too busy promoting Biden and the Democrats. Rapinoe quarreled with the president during the 2019 Women’s World Cup, vowing not to leave if her team wins the trophy.
When Phillips ran out of ammo to claim Trump was responsible for preventing the Lakers from seeing Biden, he turned his anger on the NFL Hall of Famer and Trump supporter Brett Favre.
Despite feeling that some normalcy is returning to the White House, Phillips says that “does not mean that hypocritical idiots like Brett Favre are prevented from believing that sport and politics do not mix.”
Favre recently told Andrew Klavan on The Daily Wire: “I can’t tell you how many people have said to me, ‘I don’t watch anymore; It’s no longer about the game. ‘And I tend to agree. ”
Hypocrite! explains Phillips. Favre and 1997 Super Bowl Champion Green Bay Packers won the Super Bowl and attended the White House when Bill Clinton was President. According to the project, Favre’s visit to President Bill Clinton is viewed by Phillips as political.
Phillips’ bottom line is to hold Trump responsible for damaging the tradition of receiving sports championships at the White House. And when all else fails, he ridicules former supporters of the president like Favre for invoking the stick to sports argument. These arguments are wrong, weak and nothing more than political theater.
