Former President Donald Trump issued a statement through his spokeswoman Liz Harrington to circumvent his Twitter ban, and we have questions. Trump loves starting culture wars, so it was more of the same following the news that Cleveland’s Major League Baseball team will now be called the Guardians instead of the Cleveland Indians. The twice-impeached one-term president said that “many Indians” will likely be upset by the decision — and I doubt that the people of India care one way or the other. And he claimed that he’s now a “former” fan of baseball.
“Can anybody believe that the Cleveland Indians, a storied and cherished baseball franchise since taking the name in 1915, are changing their name to the Guardians? Such a disgrace,” Trump said in a statement Friday.
“And I guarantee that the people who are most angry about it are the many Indians of our Country,” Trump continued to say. “A small group of people, with absolutely crazy ideas and policies, is forcing these changes to destroy our culture and heritage. At some point, the people will not take it anymore!”

Ummm. last I looked it is the Native Americans in this country that wanted Indians to change it’s name. how does Trump not know that?

I think it’s great that they changed their name. Not surprised the former racist in chief is against it. Hes against everything that is the right thing to do. 600,000 dead people are the proof of that.

Can anybody believe a drug addicted, diaper filling, lying piece of garbage who is a fraud and criminal is able to circumvent his Twitter ban by using a jackass cult member like Liz?

Trump will never change. He’s still a racist piece of rancid garbage that thinks changing a team’s name is an attack on white people’s “heritage.”
