After Steph Curry said he’d skip celebrating the Golden State Warriors’ NBA championship at the White House, Donald Trump tweeted that Steph was uninvited!
This is the President of the United States of America, ladies and gentlemen. With most of Puerto Rico without power, Houston still drying out from historic floods and wildfires ravaging the northwest, Donald Trump, 71, turned his attention…to Stephen Curry, 29, on Sept. 23. The Golden State Warriors superstar is supposed to make a trip to the White House in celebration of the team’s 2017 NBA Championship win, but after Steph didn’t jump for joy at the idea of possibly shaking Donald’s (allegedly) tiny hands, the thin-skinned president pitched a public hissy fit!
“Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team,” Donald Trump actually tweeted at 8:45 AM ET on Sept. 23. This is something the leader of the free world actually wrote. “Stephen Curry is hesitating, therefore invitation is withdrawn!” Yes, the man elected to the highest office in the land essentially said “You don’t want to come to my party? Fine, you weren’t really invited anyway.” Think about that.
What could have caused Trump’s outburst? Well, Step told ESPN’s The Jump on Sept 22 that the Warriors would hold a team meeting to decide if they’d go to the White House. Steph said he’d vote no. “That’s going to be my vote when I meet with the team, but it is a collective … it’s not just about me, it’s not just about [Kevin Durant] , it’s about the whole team and what we were able to accomplish as a team and the opportunity that historically has been afforded to championship teams,” Steph said. “So, we’ll have that conversation and we’ll do it as a group and we’ll have one voice.”
Fun fact – Donald Trump rescinded the invitation, but the Warriors have yet to be invited to the White House, per ESPN. So, Donald un-invited Steph even before Steph was invited.
Needless to say, people were just dumbstruck by how the 45th President of the United States was acting like a upset child who found out that someone wasn’t coming to their birthday party. Some thought that Steph being personally un-invited by the President was really a “badge of honor.” Others said that Donald was right, that going to the White House was an honor…back when Barack Obama, 56, was living there.
In a shocking show of support for his “bitter rival,” LeBron James, 32, — you know, the guy Steph beat in the 2017 NBA Finals – stood up for Steph by blasting Trump. The King of the NBA called the comamnder in chief a “Bvm,” and said that visiting the White House was a great honor “until you showed up!”
