So number of things took place this weekend, and two things that went viral, both included the president.
Let's start with Golden State NBA player Steph Curry who decided early on that he would not be attending the 'White House' visit- (which is customary for each championship team to attend). Welp, similar to other players in the past who have opted to go to the white house, Curry was not alone.
Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team.Stephen Curry is hesitating,therefore invitation is withdrawn!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 23, 2017
Welp, this is what Lebron had to say about it.
U bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain't going! So therefore ain't no invite. Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up!— LeBron James (@KingJames) September 23, 2017
However, there's more, then NFL fans and players spoke out against Trump for his comments about players taking a knee during the anthem- this is how the players responded.
Great solidarity for our National Anthem and for our Country. Standing with locked arms is good, kneeling is not acceptable. Bad ratings!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 24, 2017
...NFL attendance and ratings are WAY DOWN. Boring games yes, but many stay away because they love our country. League should back U.S.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 24, 2017
This is the comment that started the knee in London today.
Even J.Cole took to twitter.
