Donald Trump has managed to unify an influential group of people, against himself. Pro athletes from the NBA, NFL, MLB and more have formed like Voltron against Cheeto’s race-baiting antics. 

 

It all started when at a rally in Alabama, the alt-POTUS, without mentioning his name, came for Colin Kaepernick. The moron in chief called any NFL protester a son of a b*tch (seriously).

This is where we mention the obvious pattern of Trump coming for Black people (see: The Central Park 5, Barack Obama, etc.). If this is where you saying something like “But Omarosa,” go have a seat.

Needless to say, players and even the NFL itself blasted Trump’s commentary.

Then the next day he was bored and decided to come for NBA players, specifically Steph Curry, for being hesitant to pay a visit to the White House. Trump rescinded the Golden State Warriors’ invite and has since proceeded to get burned by Steph Curry…

…burned by LeBron James

and burned by the team.

Over in the MLB, Bruce Maxwell of the Oakland Athletics became the first player to take a knee in protest during the National Anthem. Take note that he still has his hat over his heart, so he’s protesting anything BUT the flag.

Many were wondering if NFL players would stand up for themselves, or turn tail. While many of have made statements against Cheeto, the Baltimore Ravens and Jacksonville Jaguars protested early this morning before their game in London. Even Ray Lewis participated, so you know it’s real.

But before we get all excited, the overqualified Colin Kaepernick still doesn’t have a job.
