The Obamas are the gift that just keep giving. If you’re a rabid leftist, that is. For virtually everyone else, including increasing numbers of Democrat-leaning individuals, the Obamas have long since worn out their welcome in Washington D.C.
Never in history has a former president been so insistent on meddling with another individuals’ presidency, nor has any former president ever interfered as openly as both Obama and his weeping willow, Michelle Obama have, particularly in recent days.
Feeling a bit desperate over Mr. Biden, are we, Obama? Or do you really plan to somehow “man” him in the way you apparently manned LeBron James and others to effectively cancel themselves with an NBA boycott?
Furthermore, as implausible as this story may seem to those who believed Obama possessed a modicum of presidential decency, Obama’s own spokesperson confirmed his involvement in the NBA boycott.
“As an avid basketball fan, President Obama speaks regularly with players and league officials,” spokesperson Katie Hill told CNN. “When asked, he was happy to provide advice on Wednesday night to a small group of NBA players seeking to leverage their immense platforms for good after their brave and inspiring strike in the wake of Jacob Blake’s shooting.” [Source: Breitbart]
In other words, Obama openly interfered with the NBA games in an attempt to make Trump look bad, which by default exemplifies another example of 2020 presidential election interference. In addition, he did so in such an insidious manner that he also managed to shock the industry, as the NBA officials themselves had no idea such a boycott was coming.
Wonder if Obama was also behind Lebron James’ rather egregious tweet, undoubtedly typed out from behind the walls of a heavily guarded palatial mansion, which proclaimed that all black people are hunted by the police.
“We’re literally hunted EVERYDAY/EVERYTIME we step foot outside the comfort of our homes!” the basketball player posted.
“Can’t even go for a damn jog man!” James wrote, referencing the fatal shooting of 25-year-old black man Ahmaud Arbery. “Like [what the f***] man are you kidding me?!?!?!?!?!? No man fr ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!!! I’m sorry Ahmaud (Rest In Paradise) and my prayers and blessings sent to the […] heavens above to your family!! #StayWoke#ProfiledCauseWeAreSimplyBlack.” [Source: The Daily Wire]
Hunted? Wow. And what “comfort” you have, Mr. James, given how filthy rich you’ve become in a country that you proclaim to be hopelessly racist. While the tweet was rather incendiary, even for a professional sports player, Obama’s rather open involvement in the NBA now does make one wonder about the real architect of such an incendiary tweet earlier this year.
Obama’s obsession with his own legacy is becoming a threat to the nation, particularly since his own actions, which include deliberate racial division and horrific foreign policy, are what tarnished his legacy, not President Trump. If anything, President Trump is working valiantly to clean up all the filth that Obama left behind, domestically and internationally.
Thanks to Obama’s ongoing efforts, Trump is still cleaning up.
Fortunately for Trump, Obama has picked the wrong activist avenue, as viewers are tuning out the NBA in droves due to its new and unimproved involvement in politics. After all, someone wouldn’t go to a movie theater just to watch 2 hours of the same tragic news; why would they want to watch a whole bunch of (absurdly biased) politics with perhaps a dash of (poorly played) sports on the side if they don’t have to?
Obama and his lapdogs can say whatever they’d like, but the ratings don’t lie.
“Americans have been falling progressively out of love with the NBA, for instance, and the pandemic has only exacerbated an already difficult situation,” the report says. “TV ratings, mediocre after the season restarted, are down collectively by 40 percent on the TNT network, and 20 percent on ESPN, since their peak nearly a decade ago.”
The report noted that the NBA’s “network TV premium broadcasts ratings on ABC are off by 45 percent,” which “a former public relations executive for the NBA describes as a ‘cratering’ of viewership,” per The Athletic. [Source: The Daily Wire]
Excellent. The NBA players can keep playing to empty stadiums and keep losing fans, and, eventually, their advertisement-paid contracts. Next thing you know, they’ll be calling Americans racist for not watching their nonstop, ill-informed political stunts.
Meanwhile, Trump and Americans will carry on with life while the Democrats continue cancelling themselves.
