On Saturday, Chicago Bulls player Robin Lopez jumped in to the controversy raised by President Donald Trump’s remarks in Alabama on Friday night.
After Trump raised hackles across the spectrum by saying that NFL owners should respond to players who protest the national anthem by giving an order to “get that son-of-a-b*tch off the field,” Golden State Warriors player Stephen Curry said that he would not be attending a White House event in protest.
Trump fired back by saying that Curry was un-invited from an event he didn’t want to attend, which Curry responded to by attempting to remind the president that it is beneath his office to pick fights with individual Americans over differences of opinion.
Lopez slyly chimed in by saying that if the Warriors just wait a few months, they can visit some other president at the White House.
“It’s ok @warriors,” he wrote, “in a few months @realDonaldTrump probably won’t be able to visit the White House either.”
