Trump rips NBA players, officials for ’pandering to China’

President Trump criticized NBA coaches for what he called ’pandering’ to China on Wednesday. ’I watched the way that Kerr and Popovich and some of the others were pandering to China’, Trump said about Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr and San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, in his first comments on the issue.

This from the man who hasn’t said ANYTHING about Hong Kong to not ruin a “trade deal”. This from the man who let Kashoggi murder stand because of an arms deal worth “billions”. You can attack a corporation for looking out after their monetary interest, but I will put the blame on the real cowards, our elected officials. We, the country that loves to “spread democracy”, won’t spread it into Hong Kong but we have no issue spreading it in Afghanistan, Iraq, etc. COWARDS.

If you want to know who controls you, look at who you are not allowed to criticize. - Voltaire Permit me to issue and control the money of a nation, and I care not who makes its laws! Who owns wall street? Who owns all the debt of the largest media companies in America? Why are there only 6 media companies in the United States that control all the PROGAMING?

NFL NBA how sad MONEY has corrupted even this form of ENTERTAINMENT to be a cog in the propaganda machine. I really can't comment on sports, so I won't. I wish sports team members and sporting events would not comment on political events. Next we will have NASCAR drivers popping out of the car after winning trying to tell you how to think. Or will it be Race Horse jockeys endorsing the communist leaders for making countertops lower. We are truly in a CLOWN WORLD

It's moments like this that Trump demonstrates his ability to pivot a situation into another confrontation to highlight putting American values first. Good!

Is Trump actually (and possibly hypocriticaly in this case) arguing from a moral high ground? Someone please explain how this somehow serves American interest.

So capitalism's weakness is communists paying off the capitalists? That seems like a pretty big oversight.
