So last night, Donald Trump did his best impression of your drunk, verbally abusive uncle after a case of Miller High Life on Sunday afternoon.
For those who missed it, here’s the clip:
If you slow Trump's speech down to about 75% during his NFL rant, he's indistinguishable from your drunk uncle Gary on the 4th of July. pic.twitter.com/hoKC2ADDUi

So pleased was Trump with his debut as an NFL analyst that he decided to try his (small) hand at delivering some commentary on the NBA, lashing out on Twitter at Steph for the latter’s decision to decline an invitation to visit the White House:
Here’s Curry’s simple rationale:
We don’t stand for what our President has said. We won’t stand for it.
There you go. Of course that was before Trump’s tweet, which means that Trump saying the invitation is “withdrawn” is a lot like “firing” someone who has already quit.
Well needless to say, Trump’s Friday night comments about the NFL and his Saturday morning Twitter tantrum have been met with an immediate backlash.
Here, for instance, is the NFL’s official response:
Divisive comments like these demonstrate an unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL, our great game and all of our players, and a failure to understand the overwhelming force for good our clubs and players represent in our communities.
And then, in a true testament to the fact that no one outside of Paul Ryan is intimidated by the would-be autocrat who, for the time being anyway, occupies the Oval Office, LeBron James had this to offer:
Yes, going to the White House used to be a great honor. Just ask Steph…
Oh, and here’s Chris Paul:
And I doubt he's man enough to call any of those players a son of a bitch to their face…
