Trump Just Responded To Cleveland Indians Name Change And It’s Even More Unhinged Than We Were Prepared For

Lord have mercy.

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!”

Twitter users pounced.

Was the crisis in Afghanistan surrounding the pull out of American Troops Biden's fault or Trump's fault?

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.”
