According to a recent report by the Washington Post, professional sports teams are avoiding Trump hotels. Of the 17 teams that said they previously stayed at a Trump hotel, 16 said they are actively trying not to stay there anymore.

This includes teams from the NFL, NHL, NBA, and MLB. But not all are refusing to stay because they are opposed to Donald Trump. But those that are are more vocal about it:

“’The president has seemingly made a point of dividing us as best he can,’ The Golden State Warriors basketball coach Steve Kerr said. ‘He continually offends people, and so people don’t want to stay at his hotel. It’s pretty simple.’

“Kerr and his team used to spend about $20,000 per night at hotels like the Trump SoHo in Manhattan.”

So when White House Press Secretary was asked about the boycott by the Washington Post, she did not mince words. She plainly stated that Trump’s response is, “I don’t care:”

“Trump does not care about his business and cares about the country, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told The Washington Post.

“’The president has repeatedly said he doesn’t care about his business, he cares about the country,’ Sanders said in an email. ‘The president’s position on athletes standing for the National Anthem is about respecting the flag and the men and women of the military who sacrifice to defend it and nothing else.’”

Well played, Sarah, well played.

    I say good for the President. It’s amazing how people take words said out of context. They make up their own meanings and put them out there. I’m so tired of these overpaid, ignorant, infantile, athletes sounding off about how Trump is the reason they are protesting then some say inequality, and then whatever they decide for the next day. Who can take them seriously?

      Who can take you seriously when Russia is ginning up the attacks against NFL.
      Funny, how you all take your marching orders from Russia.

      • Jmanjo

        Since there is no evidence we can only assume you have frigging idea what you are talking about. There is no Russian collusion except in your head. You can only type out “sad” so mant times before you become it yourself. Fade away liberal loon!

      • Renata

        Some $60 million to manaford from Putin’s Oligarch is a good clue.

        Manaford’s email telling us that he offered to Putin’s Oligarch “private briefings” on trump campaign while running that campaign in the hope that it would make him whole…provides a pretty good additional clues.

        Seem to remember that Illinois Governor went to jail for considering such an option, and that was in Illinois politics and did not involve any foreign governments.

        Another interesting piece of information, let’s see, an intern at Bannon’s Cambridge Analytica Ieft information that easily could have guided Russians on who and how to target voters with what type of disinformation…

        And that’s what just came out this week.
        Sad! Very sad for our country that we failed to stop the attack from Russia.
        Even more sad for people who refuse to face enen that possibility if not that reality.

        If you are open minded and not just a liberal moron, check out Hilary’s real connections with Russia. Check out the uranium she sold them.

      • Renata

        Hillary is not in office. Interesting but not of burning concern.
        Why are you resisting the possible Collusion of the Trump folks.
        So it’s bad if Hillary was in bed with the Russians but ok if the current guy is in Putin’s pocket?
        How about you give the current issue your attention.
        Seems to me laws and rules should not allow foreign government to lobby and pay… It is not in the interest of US citizens and our country.

      • freebirdlj

        What Hillary did is proven fact. There is no proof of the allies toons against the President. I really don’t care if he President talked to Putin during he campaign. It no influence on the election. But the democrats had over 3 million fraud votes. That is a crime.

      • Renata

        You mean your fake uranium deal news?
        9 agencies and Canada signed off on that deal and Uranium did not belong to US.
        Unlike you, I do want to know whether our government is in Putin’s pocket.
        Putin money has infiltrated our country and it does damage to our country.
        Clearly your hate for Hillary is greater that your concern for your

        Cut it out. You are the hater.

        The amount of money Russian operatives “poured” into Facebook advertising was below $100K according to Democrat and Facebook majority shareholder Mark Zuckerberg. According to Bloomberg, Clinton and her super PACS raised $1.2 billion for the 2016 election. And Clinton outspent President Trump approximately 2:1. A grammar school dropout can do the math and draw a rational conclusion. So what is your impediment to rational thought?

      • Renata

        Looks like you are behind the times. Billions poured in and that included funding fitness clubs that promoted hatred and protests.
        That also includes team Trump members retweeting fair, divisive posts created in Russia.
        Parascale bragged on 60 minutes how his tweets and the minions who worked for him reached millions within minutes.
        Wake up and smell the coffee.

        A US President talking to Putin— you mean like the hot mic episode when Obama told Medvedev that he’d have more latitude after his (Obama’s) re-election? Yah… Obama didn’t sound much like a man of integrity then.

      • Moon Mullins

        Yep….Remember that time Donald Trump was paid $500,000 to give a speech in Moscow?! Oh no, wait… that was BILL CLINTON.

        Remember that time Trump failed to disclose Russian donors to his foundation before he served as Sec of State? Oh no, wait. That was HILLARY Clinton

        Remember the time Trump was business partners with Russian government? His company received $35M from Russia… oh no wait that was JOHN PODESTA

        Remember the time Trump scored $145M from shareholders of a uranium company that was sold to the Russians? Oh no, wait… that was HILLARY Clinton again.

        Remember the time that President Trump gave $150 Billion to a terrorist state and a sworn enemy of the United States. Then later shipped pallets full of small denomination unmarked bills to the same terrorist state and sworn enemy Oh no, that was President Barrack Hussein Obama. (Am I allowed saying “Hussein” on this Facebook page?)

        Remember when President Trump said it served justice to allow those under investigation to destroy evidence taking a hammer to cell phones and laptop hard drives, oh no wait that was James Comey.

        Remember that time President Trump destroyed subpoenaed evidence by Congress and the FBI, oh no wait, that was Hillary Clinton.

        Remember that time Donald Trump approved the sale of 20% of U.S. uranium to the Russians?! Oh no, wait… that was HILLARY CLINTON.

        With such a target-rich environment there, remind me again why we are still investigating President Trump? Especially after a year of CIA, FBI, NSA, 2 Congressional investigations that found not a whiff of evidence.

        Is something else going on besides “following the evidence”?
        People continually ware their blinders to actually what the far liberals/nasty news media is trying to do…sell this country for a price. In order to fill their pockets. And it won’t be the pockets of the hard working Americans. Or those who fought for freedom.
        You may want to copy and paste this so you can add this to other articles that want to spin their malicious lies about our President that they can be made to look unintelligent..and uninformed

    Trump Song (sing to tune of Glory Hallelulah)

    I long to see the glory of America restored.
    Trump is stamping out the vineyard where the lies of wrath are stored.
    He’s taking on the problems lesser presidents ignored.
    Trump’s train is rolling on.

    Schumer caused so much confusion, there was no truth of Trump collusion.
    Pelosi weighed in with delusion, yet the Trump train’s rolling on.

    We have seen Him douse the fires of a hundred media camps;
    They maligned Him on the altar of the evening news by tramps;
    Twisting every sentence they now have writer’s cramps
    Still the Trump train’s rolling on.

    Trump exposed progressive gospel and is destroying it’s appeal
    He’s restoring what Obama and his minions tried to steal
    Just watch this mortal hero crush that serpent with his heel
    Keep the Trump train rolling on.

      A wonderful paraphrasing, but the title of the song is not “Glory Hallelujah.” It’s “The Battle Hymn of the Republic,” a Union Civil War song specifically written to counter the Confederacy’s stirring marching song, “Dixie.”

      And then she collapses and disappears for days at a time. Gee, wouldn’t she have made a great president? Cut it out. Every time you open your mouth it spews hatred.


    I understand the racist boycott of Trump’s hotels by the 77% black NBA and the 67% black NFL, but it seems rather suspicious to claim that the 9% black MLB and the 2% black NHL are also involved in this racist act.

    As an avid hockey fan, I would appreciate knowing what NHL teams are acting in this racist manner.

    • freebirdlj

      Does the NHL really have 2% blacks? I can only think of two black players.

    Oh no, the horror of it all! They won’t be stinking up these hotels in the future.

    Once upon a time people were revered for loving their country. Not anymore. The left hates this country and they also hate anyone who does not hate the country as they do. The country isn’t perfect says the leftists, and they are probably correct about that. But, there are people all over the world who would give anything to be here and to work here and raise their families here. The things that leftists think are bad about the country could be fixed by adding a large slice of socialism, they believe. But, there are socialist societies all over the world and hardly anybody wants to go to one of them, including these same leftists. I say, America-love it or leave it, and don’t give me any of that crap about hanging in here and perfecting America. It’s just fine as it is-thank you.

    • freebirdlj

      The USA could be made much better if we exterminated liberals.
      They have destroyed the democrat party. They will destroy the USA if they are not stopped.

  • domar1938

    Good move on their part by honoring their feelings. Now, their pettiness will not go unnoticed by those out here that believe in standing for the anthem and respecting the things that made this country great. It will wind up costing them much more than $s.

    I wonder how many of these high priced athletes have ever served their country in any capacity. What have they done except gone to college free, earned a degree for doing nothing and have become a millionaire because they could hit, kick or throw a ball. Big deal you friggin jerks., who cares about you now that you have spoiled the enthusiasm and excitement of watching a game. And you won’t stay at a Trump hotel, poor babies ! I enjoy watching Family Feud more now than football anyway !!


    I was a “small time” local elected official for several years and the small business I owned on main-street lost 90% of our revenue stream in 4 years. This happened because as time passes a conscientious elected official will be forced to vote and make hundreds of decisions that will have the cumulative affect of alienating everyone who has ever known you who doesn’t understand or appreciate the gravity of taking the Oath of Office.

    Donald Trump was not my personal “first choice” but I cheerfully voted for him in the general because I could see that in spite of his other faults he was willing to risk and sacrifice his fortune for the sake of the country.

    Oh the Russian thing was and is real alright, absolutely real. But it’s not President TRUMP. It was and is concerning hillary and obama, might want to include the dnc in that also. With hillary you have the little thing with the reset button. Then there is the little thing with the uranium. Then there is the little thing with all the cash going into the foundation.
    With obama there is the little thing, caught on camera with Russia, about waiting until after the election and we will take care of it then.
    With the dnc there is the little thing about the computer hack. Come to find out that the reason they didn’t want their computers checked is because they were paying a bunch of crooks to manufacture dirt that was not there.
    So the Russian thing is completely real. Just not where they are pointing their fingers at.
