Donald Trump: Who are these Muslim sports heroes that Obama is talking about?

Business Insider
 

Real-estate magnate Donald Trump seemed puzzled on Sunday night after President Barack Obama referenced “our sports heroes” when talking about Muslim-Americans during his Oval Office address.

“Obama said in his speech that Muslims are our sports heroes. What sport is he talking about, and who?” Trump tweeted after Obama’s speech.

The Republican presidential front-runner then asked, “Is Obama profiling?”

There are a number of sports legends who have identified as Muslim, including basketball greats Shaquille O'Neal and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Trump has feuded with Abdul-Jabbar on the campaign trail.

Additionally, Trump has both accepted from and given awards to boxing champion Muhammad Ali. Trump has shared multipleinspirational quotes from Ali on his Twitter feed and called Ali his “friend” earlier this year. Trump has also touted the campaign endorsement from another famous Muslim boxer, Mike Tyson.

Obama referenced Muslim sports heroes while urging respect for America’s Muslim community amid threats from radical groups like the Islamic State, also known as ISIS.

“Muslim-Americans are our friends and our neighbors, our coworkers, our sports heroes — and, yes, they are our men and women in uniform who are willing to die in defense of our country,” Obama said, according to the White House transcript. “We have to remember that.”

He will win the South with that one speech

That's why he said it.

But, it appears that Muslim-Americans' voting preferences and deliberate 'disassociation(s)' have come home to roost, otherwise Trump would be written off for being the hard-sell used car salesman in a nice suit, that he is.

I would like to know just how Trump is planning on "banning" Muslims from entering the country.  

If that idiotic statement is even given an ounce of thought, people would realize that it's as ridiculous as banning only people who like strawberries from entering the country; hell, all they have to do is say they don't like strawberries.

It would be a complete waste of time and resources to try to ban all Muslims from coming to America.  

It would be a waste of valuable time and resources that would be better spent bringing down actual terrorists, Muslim or otherwise [like all the racist cops on America's police forces] that are bent on killing Americans [African Americans are Americans].

 

 

 

 

Trump's like Hitler. He'd like to turn Native American country all white. He's part German; this is where all this comes from. He's after Muslims at the moment; he beat a black fella to the pulp, he threw a Mexican out of one of his "speeches". He's consumed with that fuckin' "White Power" they love so much. There's something wrong with this fucker and unfortunately, it flows through all of them. Where did these folks originate from in the first place?  One article on youtube says Rhesus monkeys. If that's so, that explains the hair and everything else about them. I'm so damn sad they didn't have cotton pickin' capabilities. Satan shows in all their faces on my TV. Those huge heads coming up to explain the Dec. 19th debate, damn near sends me to the hospital with a fuckin' heart attack. They might tell each other and the world they're beautiful, but I beg to differ. Lookin' at 'em sends me to the bathroom.  I love all their sperm donations they threw up in my family, but thank God for the blackness mixed in. No one's chin's draggin' the god damn ground and we know how to handle all the different hair textures this shit entails; straight, wavy, fuzzy, nappy. We can handle it' ain't that special, YT??????

. . . but not the Presidency. We’re seeing the dying gasps of the racist white GOP working class who have been suckered for decades by the likes of Faux News to vote against their interests. They’re rabid, dangerous and looking to blame outsiders for the collapse of their financial Dream. Steer clear! And never give any of Trump’s businesses one cent!

A few more attacks could easily launch Trump into Oval Office. Also a weak populace platform from Democrats could open the door for Trump to walk into the White House. White Americans and Americans in general are attracted to powerful, confident, arrogant figures in which Trump portrays very well. 

If Trump becomes president, that will be a sure sign the US is on a rapid decent toward doom and proof that Americans are dumb and unsophisticated.
