Donald Trump is a troll. The Russian-back POTUS said he is considering a pardon for Muhammad Ali—which is quite unnecessary.
The late, great Muhammad Ali was a conscientious objector and convicted for refusing to enlist and serve in the Vietnam War in 1967. Part of the fallout included Ali losing his boxing license and the icon being despised by many more people than are willing to admit it now.
“I’m thinking about Muhammad Ali. I’m thinking about that very seriously and some others,” said Trump before heading to the G7 meeting.
But, as everyone will report, the Supreme Court overturned his conviction in 1971 while President Jimmy Carter issued a pardon to draft evaders in 1977. In fact, Ali was repped by the NAACP.
Ironically, Trump got multiple deferments from serving in Vietnam due to…bone spurs.
All that to say, Cheeto was once again talking out the side of his neck, and don’t fall for the jig. Like Jack Johnson, he just wants to pardon a Black guy for the optics. Trump is still a racist, period.
This is the same who calls a Black athlete who protests police brutality and racial injustice a son of a b*tch.
