Then again, the US is going the way of the Roman Empire. Between racial divides, gender identity issues, lawlessness, etc.... Thank God I'm old enough that I'll be gone and won't have to see the sh*yshow that is the US in 50 years.
You do realize a whole bunch of uneducated people came out to vote...for Trump?

With all the publicity Curry has caused by opining on this topic (without even an invitation yet), each player who goes will be scrutinized (and probably bashed) - that's if the player even gets the choice of going. Conformity to public/popular opinion is almost a necessity for one's career these days (especially for lesser names). And Kerr himself is in a horrible spot too.

Curry has chosen to be a leader for his community instead of just for his team in this topic, all praise to him for that.

If some role player wanted to go to the WH and now won't be able to because of Curry, well... tough. They got the chance thanks to KD and Curry in the first place and neither of them want to go.

Uneducated people voted for both sides. Both sides prey on the uneducated.

Never knew how true the movie Idiocracy was until a couple of years ago. Our country is becoming worse by the day.

They’ll decide on not to go

KD said he wasn’t going first too.

lol, this is just easy red meat nonsense for the really idiotic portion of Trump's base.

Trump is now quietly admitting parts of his so-called border wall will be "invisible" because he knows he's not going to be able to get funding for it and there are several logistical issues with it on top of that. Health care reform? Yeah don't even ask.

He hasn't been able to get much of anything done, other than firing half of his staff. North Korea simply flubs his insults and continues to fire missles. He's not respected by anyone in the international community.

So what's an easy distraction. Oh yeah, lets go give a speech on .... uh ... lets ... see ... uh ... oh look it's black man who kneels for the national anthem. Yeah that's a good one, lets focus on that. And Steph Curry not coming to the White House, yeah, lets try and keep the dummies in my base preoccupied with that.

He's trying to distract from a bumbling, failing White House.

A young, conservative on the Supreme Court (and lifetime appointments in lower courts), border crossings down 70%, Keystone Pipeline approved - I guess it's a matter of opinion whether he's failing or not.

Trump is żacting? as an immature needing-attention teenager, tweeting unimportant things all the day and shouting back and fortg with his teenager crazy counterpart in NK.

And the gruesome of Trump´s voting base is white rural uneducated people. Fact.

This...this isn't a serious post, is it? Ask Donald Trump to name 5 points in the latest Healthcare Bill and he couldn't

Portions of his base are already turning on him, he knows he needs to throw some red meat to the dumber part of his base. This is just him pandering and trying to distract. There's absolutely zero reason otherwise for the president of the United States to get involved in issues like the freaking NFL.

He needs a scapegoat, what better for his base than an insubordinate black man or two to get them riled up since he knows he can't deliver on 2/3 of the sh*t he promised.

It's very convenient to distract from the fact that his White House is taking a lot of Ls and continually embarrassing itself.

You mean the SC seat that Rethugs had to change parliamentary rules to get on...border crossings were ALREADY down under Obama...

That's it? 8 months in and that is all the orange clown has to show for you bigger idiots electing him?

Is he out of the lower 30s in job approval rating yet?
