So “White House visits become political litmus test for athletes.”
Political litmus tests! Who could imagine?
From the story:
For victorious sports teams these days, the confetti and champagne are apt to be accompanied by a politically fraught question: Are you going to the White House?
What used to be one of the most innocuous photo-ops in sports is anything but. Going — or not going — has become a political statement in the era of President Donald Trump …
One would think the first “fraught” question ought to be: Are you even invited to the White House? That’s a good question, especially considering that President Trump says,
If they don’t want to be here, I don’t want them.
Simple enough, isn’t it?
But not for progressives and the media, who seem to want to force President Trump to invite winning teams, but only so that progressives and the media can watch and relish President Trump’s humiliation (they assume) when these millionaire snowflakes diss him (and the People) by not showing up or, if they do show up, by orchestrating a surprise “protest” with the President as an unwilling participant.
How unfair of President Trump to spoil their fun and not stand there and take their disrespect and disdain.
WTPOTUS would like to add to what President Trump said:
If they don’t want to go to the White House, if they have no respect for the country or its People, then We the People don’t want them there in the People’s House, either.
If these athletes won’t go to the White House to show respect for the country and its duly elected president and for all the fans who made them wealthy, when the President has been gracious enough to invite them there to honor them, then We the People should return the favor.
They won’t come to our House with respect, then we won’t go to their houses (with our money).
Boycott the “houses” of any team that disrespects our president and, by extension, We the People of the United States of America.
