Hey Donald Trump, Here’s What a Muslim Athlete Looks Like

Bernard Hopkins, Dion Waiters and Rasheed Wallace are a few of the Muslims athletes that I personally know from Philadelphia, yet your GOP presidential hopeful says he doesn’t know what one looks like at all.

Reason 176 on why Donald Trump shouldn’t be president was just presented when he sent out this tweet:

The business mogul, once again trying to be a smart ass, took to Twitter to offer his thoughts on President Barack Obama’s national address, where he lamented that Muslims are our some of the sports biggest heroes.

“Muslim Americans are our friends and our neighbors; our co-workers, our sports heroes — and, yes, they are our men and women in uniform,” Obama said.

Does Donald Trump not know how many times he’s been photographed with Muhammad Ali?

He doesn’t know any Muslim athletes. Yet in 2007, Trump accepted a Muhammad Ali Award at a charity event in Phoenix hosted by the three-time heavyweight champion of the world.

I count four different occasions where I’ve seen Trump and the greatest boxer to ever live, in the same room and same photos.

Trump has gotten into public spats with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, yet it seems he doesn’t respect him enough to even know his religion, yet takes the opportunity to judge him.

Trump has hosted and attended fights with Bernard Hopkins, Mike Tyson and probably been in the same building with Larry Johnson or Hakeem Olajuwon.

If you need more Muslims athletes, here’s a small list compiled by Deadspin:

Muhammad Ali
Shaquille O’Neal
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
Shareef Abdur-Rahim
Muhammad Wilkerson
Kenneth Faried
Hakeem Olajuwon
Rasheed Wallace
Nazr Mohammed
Bernard Hopkins
Dion Waiters
Amir Khan
Hedo Turkoglu
Mesut Özil
Marouane Fellaini
Khabib Nurmagomedov

Or how about Aqib Talib, who played for Trump's favorite team the Patriots, or Dominique Easley, a Pats pass rusher as well?

How about Heisman winner Rashaan Salaam? Or how about my Temple and New York Jets guy, Mo Wilkerson, who plays for the team employed by Trump's good friend Woody Johnson?

The point is that Donald Trump shouldn’t be allowed to be President because he’s blatantly rude and disrespectful.
