Image: Getty Images The NBA regular season doesn’t start until Tuesday, but San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich has already dominated an opponent — in this case, President Donald Trump.  After Trump made the outrageously false claim that former President Barack Obama didn’t contact the families of fallen troops, “Pop” went off when talking to The Nation‘s Dave Zirin.  SEE ALSO: Why Gregg Popovich is such a powerful critic of Donald Trump The five-time NBA champion coach and U.S. Air Force veteran said Trump’s comments were “so beyond the pale, I almost don’t have the words.” Almost is the key […]

Image: Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images It’s every social media manager’s worst nightmare.  Dan Scavino Jr., who runs social media for President Donald Trump, accidentally tweeted out an attack on NBC News from both his account as well as Trump’s account on Wednesday.  Scavino quickly deleted the tweet. The tweet on Trump’s account is still up. I don’t think Trump did this tweet pic.twitter.com/HXZHPr6Nls — Joe Perticone (@JoePerticone) October 4, 2017 The error provides a glimpse behind the scenes of how Trump’s Twitter account is run. It has been generally assumed that Trump sends most of his own tweets.  Trump may have […]

Image: Getty Images With Puerto Rico in a worsening humanitarian crisis, President Donald Trump continues to hold the U.S. territory’s debt over its head. It is difficult to fathom just how irresponsible and entirely beside the point Puerto Rico’s debt is when it comes to its current situation. Puerto Ricans are Americans, just like the people in parts of Texas and Florida that the government is helping after two other major hurricanes this season.  Yet on Friday, Trump doubled down on holding disaster aid hostage to the U.S. territory’s debts, which total about $70 billion.. “Ultimately, the government of Puerto […]

Image: Getty Images If his approval rating isn’t registering and Donald Trump needs help determining who is not on his side of history these days, he can look for answers in Marshawn Lynch’s wardrobe. The Oakland Raiders running back, known just as much for his on the field antics as he is for his playful treatment of the media, was spotted wearing a shirt with a strong message ahead of Sunday’s game against the Denver Broncos: “Everybody vs. Trump.” It’s a loud and clear statement, particularly in the face of dissent between Trump and NFL players who are Kaepernicking (or […]

Taking a knee during the national anthem is upsetting some DirecTV customers.Image: Patrick Smith/Getty Images) Ignorance is bliss, especially when it comes to free speech at football games.  That’s what Trump supporters and other football fans who can’t handle sports activism seem to think. For the football fans who claim they are bothered seeing athletes standing up (or rather, kneeling) for the right to protest, DirecTV is caving with refunds to their sports package, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Most politicians flip flop on issues, but when it’s documented on Twitter, it makes things a little more obvious. Notorious tweeter and President of the United States, Donald Trump, is pretty infamous for criticizing an issue in the past, then doing that exact same thing as president. Now you can proudly display your favorite Trump flip flop exactly where they belong: your feet. SEE ALSO: Reporters call out Trump’s claim that he saw Harvey ‘horror & devastation’ President Flip Flops are pretty simple — on one foot you have the original tweet, on the other, you have a tweet that […]

Image: Joe Toth/BPI/REX/Shutterstock Less than 48 hours after President Donald Trump began vocally lashing out at NFL players, some of those players struck back on the field.  During an Alabama rally for senatorial candidate Luther Strange, Trump went way off script and began calling any football players who took a knee during the national anthem a “son of a bitch.” He doubled down on this hardly-veiled attack on former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick on Saturday with a series of tweets that called on owners to fire any player who didn’t stand during the song.

Another day, another chapter in the ongoing feud between Donald Trump and NFL players who are taking the knee in protest against police brutality.  SEE ALSO: The first NFL game of Sept. 24 started with a powerful, unprecedented protest You might have seen on Twitter or Facebook this picture that purportedly depicts an NFL player burning the U.S. flag in the locker room as his teammates enthusiastically look on: Image: facebook/vetsfortrump Besides the utter absurdity of the scene, it immediately pops to the eye that there’s something wrong with the hand holding the flag. But that didn’t prevent many people […]

It's as if he's thinking, 'What have we done?!'Image: AP/REX/Shutterstock To say John Kelly has an intense listening face would be a severe understatement. If you don’t believe us, please refer to photographs of the current White House chief of staff taken during President Donald Trump’s controversial speech at the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday. After pictures of Kelly sitting in the audience looking like Trump’s words might just cause him to have an emotional breakdown began circulating online, Twitter users saw the meme potential and quickly pounced.

The official portrait of astronaut Leland Melvin with his dogs Jake and Scout.Image: NASA/REX/Shutterstock Leland Melvin — former astronaut, NFL player, engineer, author, and owner of the best damn official NASA photo of all time — shared a perfect takedown of President Donald Trump to his Facebook page on Saturday.
