The recent Democratic National Convention provided a speaking platform to numerous speakers, many of whom had some not-so-friendly things to say about former presumptive Republican presidential nominee and comedian Donald Trump.
Now Trump is firing back in response to NBA-legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s well-received speech at the convention that contained shots directed at the candidate.
“I’m Michael Jordan, and I’m here with Hillary,” said Abdul-Jabbar. “I said that because I know that Donald Trump couldn’t tell the difference.”
The Donald responded by vowing to ban Abdul-Jabbar from the Basketball Hall of Fame along with bashing the Abdul-Jabbar’s infamous sky-hook shot.
“If he wasn’t a Muslim, nobody would have cared,” said Trump. “Believe me. He would have been just another guy on the basketball court. It’s a total, utter disgrace that we allowed someone like him to reach this type of status in our country. Mark my words, when I am elected President, I will put a ban on all Muslims from the Basketball Hall of Fame.”
The crowd responded with raucous applause.
Trump did not stop there as he attacked Kareem’s signature move that defined his basketball career as well.
“His sky-hook was, and still is, extremely overrated,” said Trump. “Had I been a coach or a player in the NBA back in the 70’s and 80’s, I promise you, I would have prevented him from using that shot.”
When asked about how exactly he would have stopped Kareem’s sky hook, Trump elaborated, “it’s simple—I would have taken it out by taking away all of his oil.”
