A white Utah Jazz fan has been accused of being a racist Trump supporter after video of player Russell Westbrook shouting at him went viral.

Initially reported by Black Sports Online, Utahn Shane Keisel — who allegedly told Westbrook to “get down on your knees like you’re used to,” prompting the athlete to shout at him and his wife during a game Monday night — appears to have posted now-deleted tweets that used slurs and praised President Donald Trump.

“Come at me n****r boy,” Keisel tweeted after the incident began going viral, according to The Root.

Prior to the game, he also apparently wrote that Westbrook is a “piece of classless sh*t” and that someone needs to “kick his ass.”

In a tweet from March 2018, the Utah Jazz fan said Westbrook “needs to go back where he came from” — and added a #MAGA hashtag.

Echoing Trump’s alleged “sh*thole countries” comment, another screenshot suggests that Keisel once wrote that a photo of a street in an unnamed African country “looks like a sh*thole” to him.

Keisel denied the characterization of his courtside argument with Westbrook in an interview with KSL-TV and claimed he told the player, “Sit down and ice your knees, bro.”

Trump’s Supreme Court gambit killed his last chance of defeating Joe Biden: Conservative columnist

Published

On Thursday, writing for The Washington Post, anti-Trump conservative columnist Jennifer Rubin outlined how the president blew his final, best chance to turn around the public perception of the presidential race, and define it on his terms rather than Joe Biden's.

"With a president whose performance is as rotten as Trump’s (Gallup also shows him with a 43 percent job approval rating), his only hope was to make his opponent even more unappealing than himself," wrote Rubin. "Trump, however, never settled on an effective attack on Biden and, in any case, cannot stand ceding attention to anyone else. Trump’s performance, his lies, his antics, his insults, his crackpot conspiracy theories, his attacks on the media and his financial scandals have remained front and center. In other words, Trump’s raging narcissism has prevented him from doing what was necessary to give him a reasonable chance to win reelection."

Fox News host predicts impeachment for President Biden — right after inauguration

Published

Fox News' host Greg Gutfeld ranted on Thursday that the day after Vice President Joe Biden is inaugurated that Republicans should impeach him.

Yelling into the camera, Gutfeld ranted that Trump got rid of ISIS and stopped North Korea from setting off nuclear weapons, both of which aren't true.

"So, now we're all talking about are "words, words, words' as opposed to Joe Biden's deeds," he continued. "There's a foreign policy issue we should discuss. He has compromised himself. And to Jesse's point, once -- If he actually wins, impeachment proceedings start the day after inauguration."

Nicolle Wallace blasts Trump’s fake ‘manliness’ for refusing to protect his key supporters

MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace blasted President Donald Trump for not caring about his staff much less "his own godd*mn supporters."

Speaking with conservative Charlie Sykes and Democratic strategist Basil Smikle, Wallace showed a new Lincoln Project ad with Sam Elliott about fathers and sons and what it means to be a "man of family and faith."

"Above all they taught us to own up to it when we did something wrong," the ad says before showing a video of Trump saying he doesn't accept responsibility for the failures of the coronavirus.
