Trump Won’t Join Nike Boycott ‘Cause He’s Scared: Company is A Tennant That ‘Pays A Lot of Rent’

trump - nike

*Welp, if you’re one of those tRumpers that expected the orange a-hole in the White House to go in on Nike and join the boycott against the company for putting Colin Kaepernick at the center of it’s “Just Do It” 30th anniversary campaing, guess what, it ain’t happening.

Why is that you ask?  Well, like everything else with Trump, it’s all about the money.  Read on for the full story via Newsweek.

Nike unveiled Colin Kaepernick as one of the faces of its 30th anniversary ?Just Do It? campaign, prompting harsh criticism from a number of political commentators and Nike customers, who have accused the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback of showing disrespect to the flag when he chose to kneel during the national anthem in 2016.

While Trump criticized the campaign, he also said the company was one of his main tenants. “I think it’s a terrible message and a message that shouldn’t be sent,” he told The Daily Caller when asked about the campaign. “There’s no reason for it.” But, the president explained, Nike was a tenant of his, and “they pay a lot of rent.” 

Nike?s flagship store was located on a site owned by Trump next to Trump Tower in New York City. But the location has since closed, and in 2017 Nike, which is based in Oregon, announced it would open a new shop on Fifth Avenue by the end of this year.

The advertising campaign?which features a picture of Kaepernick with a message reading “Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything”?sparked a furious backlash, which even saw people burning their Nike sneakers in protest.

Calls for a boycott of the company quickly spread on social media, but Trump defended Nike, suggesting the company was perfectly within its rights to choose Kaepernick?who has been a Nike athlete since 2011?to promote its campaign.

“As much as I disagree with the Colin Kaepernick endorsement, in another way?I mean, I wouldn’t have done it. In another way, it is what this country is all about, that you have certain freedoms to do things that other people think you shouldn’t do, but I personally am on a different side of it.”

Donald Trump Jr. Says Daddy Trump is Not ‘Racist’ Because He ‘Knows Rappers’ (Watch)

Photo op #1, Donald Trump pictured with ‘his pal’ Snoop Dogg

*Donald Trump, Jr.  says y’all didn’t think his dad was racist when you were attending his events, and asking him for charity dollars. Well! He may have a point. 

Or not.

That line of reasoning is no different from the one where he states how he has watched his dad his “whole life.” He knows rappers and all kinds of African American people from Jesse Jackson to Al Sharpton.

OK. That’s two.

Thing is, this dude probably needs to look up the meaning of the word racist. He should pay particular attention to the part that explains a racist …believes that a particular race is superior to another. He seems too damn old to think that just because someone knows Black people, they can’t be racist.

…and do you really know someone just because you posed in a picture with them? Have they been over your house for dinner? Watched a little TV with you? Called you and had a nice conversation…on a few occasions?

I personally have never heard Trump, Jr. speak, at least not at length. It seems I’ve missed very little. But what do you expect? He’s defending his father for goodness sake?

You will really love the part in the video below where Trump, Jr. talks about racism. He says the word is thrown around so much by people angered by the fact that something is not going their way (I’m paraphrasing intentionally because I want you to see the video) that it carries little weight when those truly affected by it brings it up.

Now in truth that’s an argument I’ve used about many things. It’s just one that doesn’t sound right coming out of his mouth. Continue reading

Woman Who ‘Middle-Fingered’ Trump Fired From Her Job

In a ‘timing is everything’ kind of way, Juli Briskman shows true feelings for Trump as his motorcade passes by. (Facebook photo)

*Well, aren’t you surprised it took so long for the woman who gave Donald Trump the middle finger as his motorcade passed while she rode her bike in Virginia last month to be let go from her place of employment?

After all, the photo of Juli Briskman, 50, doing what many wished we could do in his presence, went straight up viral. No mistaking what her intention was as a photographer traveling with the motorcade carrying Trump captured the woman — who had yet to be identified — from behind.

Whatever happened to Freedom of Speech?

Briskman was hailed  as a hero by many who even thought she should consider a run for office in the 2020 election. And needless to say, comedic Late-night TV hosts had a field day with the story.

But alas, the fateful day of reckoning came for Briskman after she chose to use the photo as her social media profile shot.

Oops. Continue reading

If Trump Makes You So Sick, Why Haven’t You Signed This Petition to Impeach Him? (Watch)

Tom Steyer

 *“Donald Trump has brought us to the brink of nuclear war, obstructed justice, and taken money from foreign governments. We need to impeach this dangerous president.” These are the words of Bay Area Democrat and billionaire, Tom Steyer. You may have seen his ad to impeach Donald Trump (forgive me please, I still can’t write the “P” word in front of his name. I’m trying…) on Fox News. Before it was pulled that is. After Trump saw it and sent him a nasty tweet. 

Trump, who obviously has not the least bit of concern for how the public feels about his use of social media; and the lack of respect people have for someone holding the top post in the nation using twitter so ferociously, tweeted:

“Wacky & totally unhinged Tom Steyer, who has been fighting me and my Make America Great Again agenda from the beginning, never wins elections!”

Seriously man? That’s all you got?

Steyer did respond to the tweet. Continue reading

Protesters will hold 10-day march from Charlottesville to DC to demand Trump’s removal

*On Monday a number of social justice groups will being a 10-day March from Charlottesville to Washington, D.C. The march is a rebuttal to the totally inadequate response from president Donald Trump on the violence that took place in Charlottesville earlier this month. The incident ignited when those against the removal of a confederate statue created havoc and afterwards, Trump blamed “many sides” and not once held the white supremacists/KKK instigators accountable.

Dubbed ?The March to Confront White Supremacy,? the event was organized by groups including The Movement for Black Lives, the Women?s March, and Democracy Spring.

‘Pee in This Cup’: Americans Request This of Congress Members to Prove THEY’RE Not on Drugs

*With all the crazy mess coming out of the Big House these days, is it any wonder why Americans are requesting drug tests for Congress members? Let me answer that for you: No! 

Amidst their latest profiling strategy, Congress is requesting that people receiving food stamps be drug tested. Now I’m way ahead of you in thinking, what the phuck does one thing have to do with the other? They do realize the answer to that question is not a damn thing, right?

Now these same “recipients” are among those saying, “We will, if YOU will!”

A Countercurrent News report states that a YouGov poll found that 78% of U.S. citizens are in favor of requiring random drug testing for members of Congress. A full 62% said they ?strongly? favor this, compared with only 51% who feel the same way about food stamp and welfare recipients.

The support for this move was bipartisan, as 86% percent of Republicans, 77% of Democrats and 75% of independents support the mandatory drug tests for members of Congress. Continue reading
