I miss Obama.

I will never miss Trumpy.

Trumpy almost made me miss Lil Bush.

But, then I remembered the 3rd of November is almost here!

If trump attacks the NBA, the dumbest third of americans will refuse to watch. It's not just one man, it's the cult leader or a huge loyal cult of morons.

"If trump attacks the NBA, the dumbest third of americans will refuse to watch."

Pretty soon that dumbest third won't have any sport they can call their own, even NASCAR doesn't cater to them any more. I don't actually think that many of that dumbest third were really NBA fans anyway. I don't think they like sports where black guys dominate.

Just like the good little Dem sheep you are, completely ignore any actual issues regarding the situation like people dying from the protests, businesses being burned, etc....all because a celebrity deflects because he has an opinion you agree with. You even added in bigoted feelings towards people you think don't have your same brainpower and generalized, which is on queue as I'm sure the next post I read from any of you Dems will be about how Reps are bad because they are bigots and generalize.

Kudos on keeping with the script, sometimes it can be hard to stay that dedicated to something for so long.

Not at all. The prospect of dying from disease and/or being impoverished focuses the mind wonderfully.

Being face to face with Death does have a interesting way of focusing the mind on what's important.

Notice the change in most Republicans when they are someone near tests positive for Covid-19. Positive in a negative way.

i would be much more impressed if some the young millionaires pictured above would "adopt" a town stuck for generations with inept governance and have the millilonaire send some of his "people" to see what can be done. centreville, il is 100% democrat. all their elected leaders are democrat. for over 20 years they have been living with sewage in their yards. nobody can finally figure it out. they finally got the esteemed US Senator Duckworth (this is Dick Durbin's hometown but he has been too busy this generation to care about the people who vote for him 100%)to come to town to get it straight. And the mayor of the town blew her off and didn't come to the meeting.

taking a knee is easy. bearing the light to shine it on corruption/ineptitude is much more impressive. you can be sure the mayor wouldn't blow off LeBron or even Obama. but neither is ever seen around poor people of any pigmentation.

black lives matter, even poor folks who don't get to wear cool t-shirts.

You'd know. You still say trump is a good businessman and honest leader with the best interests of the country at heart.
