I’m Siding with Stephen Curry and LeBron James Over John Whitbeck, EW Jackson and Donald Trump Every. Single. Day.


Check out the following tweets – from VA GOP Chair John Whitbeck, LeBron James and 2013 VA GOP Lt. Governor nominee (and all-around extremist, lunatic, etc.) E.W. Jackson and see who you agree with re: Trump’s disgusting, disrespectful, undignified, unAmerican, racist “War of Words with Black Athletes” (“In a speech Friday night, Trump urged NFL owners to fire players who protest. ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now, out. He’s fired. He’s fired!'”). For my part, I’m siding with Stephen Curry, LeBron James and other black athletes standing up for their constitutionally guaranteed rights every day of the week.

P.S. As one response on Twitter to Trump’s tirade last night put it, “President supported by white nationalists tells white owners to fire black NFL players protesting police violence against black people.” That sums it up quite well. Oh, and of course white Republican leaders like VA GOP Chair John Whitbeck leap to Trump’s defense. Hello Ed Gillespie? Any thoughts on YOUR party’s treatment of African Americans, first amendment rights of free speech, etc???
