If you weren’t quite sure who was getting the great Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s signature for the upcoming election, you can be pretty certain which way he’s swaying now.
The 6 time NBA Champion and 19 time All-Star Kareem Abdul-Jabbar made quite the introduction on the Democratic National Convention’s final night:
“Hello, everyone. I’m Michael Jordan, and I’m here with Hillary.”
He then explained: “I said that because I know that Donald Trump couldn’t tell the difference.”
Abdul-Jabbar landed a sly jab going after Trump’s noted racism in his presidential campaign. Trump launched his campaign promising to build a wall to stop Mexican immigrants whom he described as rapists and criminals, and also later stating a judge should recuse himself from a case because of his Mexican heritage.
Take that all into account, and I don’t think Kareem will feel too much backlash for this one.
