Critics will always find a way to talk some bias, as expected, but our President has had the target on his back far too much.
The latest to speak out is Warriors’ star Kevin Durant, who decided to speak out on some political issues.
It is a tradition that every major league winner gets to visit the President’s office, whether it being MLB, NFL, NBA and so on… But looks like the chain will be breaking, if what The Blaze reported turns out to be true. The 2017 NBA Finals MVP told the media he will not visit the White House if his team decides to go.
His reason being is that he does not “respect who’s in office right now” of course referring to the president. The invite still stands for the franchise, but it is hard to see them go without him and stars like Curry and Iguodala who’ve also claimed they will not be visiting.
It will not be the first time controversy was around, after the New England Patriots visited with only half of the staff.
Here is how the small forward expressed his feelings:
“I don’t agree with what he agrees with, so my voice is going to be heard by not doing that. That’s just me personally, but if I know my guys well enough, they’ll all agree with me.”
Warriors’ head coach Steve Kerr is also know as a critic, if not hater of Trump. He said he would visit out of respect if his team decides it is the better option. No one spoke like this when Obama was in the White House; everyone went there, so we do not understand why so much tension is around.
“I feel ever since he’s got into office, or since he ran for the presidency, our country has been so divided, and it’s not a coincidence. When [Barack] Obama was in office, things were looking up. We had so much hope in our communities where I come from because we had a black president, and that was a first,” said Durant, talking to a press pool.
Why is such a problem? If you have some issues, just go and forget about it, don’t cause a stir over on social media where fans will have to go at each other and fight because they support you or not.
