Skepticism? Unwillingness to blindly believe what you see/hear in media?

That kind of behavior is verboten citizen.

I would skip the trip regardless of who is in office. It's a joke we have anyone with that much power. I'm glad a guy like Trump got it in so people can see how silly the whole idea of a president is.

THIS is the good stuff right here. Everyone who is against Trump should let Trump supporters or people who are even THINKING about maybe voting to reelect him in 2020 have it like this. As often as possible.

This rational and reasoned argument will change hearts and minds and the GOP will totally not increase their Senate majority in Nov. 2018 with all those 2012 Obama reelection year Senate seats up for grabs again.


Arguing electoral success = being right is pretty weak. I mean, it's the same argument homophobes used a few years ago when saying that gay marriage was wrong because it was defeated on the ballot time after time. Voters chose a disgusting option then, just as they did in November.

I'm not saying that you're a bad person for supporting Trump, but it is a morally bankrupt position to take. If you are fine supporting someone whose political career was born in the racist sin of birtherism then, yes, I'm sorry, but people have the right to call that out. And hiding behind vote counts doesn't change the fact that what you support is morally repugnant, behind liberal or conservative.

Would love to see Draymond Green get in Trump's face.

I bet if Obama was making the same executive desicions, these guys would go. The hypocrisy is laughable. These players couldn't care less about politics as long as a mixed black man was in the White House.

Except Obama wouldnt and didnt. Thats his character. Tim Thomas didnt want to meet Obama and that was his right. NBA teams met with Bush just fine.

Or maybe more people just dont like Trump is because he looks like a Devil with funny hair.

Well if Warriors win I'm fairly certain the whole of Oakland and San Francisco will undergo what historians in years to come call "The Triggering" if a single Warrior shows up at the Whitehouse.

The whole American government machine is corrupt and dangerous and has caused massive amounts of tragedies around the world. But you know stuff Trump I guess because feelings. Wish Bogut was still a Warrior cause he would definitely be going.

Obama didn't bomb parts of the Middle East and he didn't have an immigration ban ? Are we gonna play that game?

Ouch. Now don't you look a little silly.

You know it's bad... when the New York times post yet another anti-Trump article that is so fake... that even the New England Patriots come out and call you out for #fakenews.

Read on Twitter


So New York Times.... posted a "retraction" in the form of an "update" which hardly anyone has seen.

Image

Annnnnnnnnnnnnd the New York Times lied... AGAIN within their update.... by saying 34 visited today vs 50 in 2015. WRONG.

So the New England Patriots... had to once again correct the #Fakenews of the New York Times... where in fact 36 players visited in 2015... not 50 as the New York Compost claimed.

Read on Twitter


So at what point... do you guys finally realise that its the Mainstream Media that is the one feeding the BS.... and that THEY are the fake news?

Only seven player are skipping. The rest are going.

And no, I don't see a NBA team skipping the White House visit.

I thought I read over half did not attend. Like 34 skipped is what I thought I read, not 7.


If 34 players skipped, the White House would have canceled the entire ceremony. It would basically be Kraft and Belichick

I hated Bush growing up but it still would have been awesome to go to the White House under his presidency if I won a ring. Trump I wouldn't want to go near. Realistically as well NBA players have their image to look after to a different extent to NFL players who are obviously in a very conservative environment.
