Trump is fully over his Thanksgiving Day refrain from being an idiot who complains about everything – although he did still give his daily update on how great the economy is doing without saying that President Obama is responsible for it – and he’s back to his regular updates about how much he hates it that black people won’t just do as he says and then it’s back to golfing. Again.
It’s not exactly new news that Trump believes those black players protesting the disproportionate killing of black citizens by police need to be kept in line. It is interesting, however, that he mentions who he considers the “bosses” of the NFL. It should be, according to Trump, the owners who have money and power and never, ever the players whose bodies and health are sacrificed to make the owners more money. People who work for a billionaire aren’t really people who should have rights and a voice. They’re just owned bodies meant to bow to the boss’s will. That doesn’t sound familiar or related to any other time in history, of course.
Trump also wanted to clear the air on his numerous golf trips, the ones he said he would never take back when Obama was president. Trump’s just going to play golf “quickly,” not slowly like Obama did. Trump’s golf trips are “working vacations,” because when a white man plays golf, it’s business. When a black man plays golf, it’s just lazy.
Twitter did not miss all the irony in Trump’s tweets, and they let him know about it.
