For decades, the idea of professional and college sports teams visiting the White House to celebrate their respective world or national championships with the President of the United States was a foregone conclusion.
It was a tradition rarely ever questioned for any reason, much less, a political one.
That was, of course, until the President became Donald Trump, and anyone in the world of sports even remotely left of center began to push the idea of athletes boycotting White House visits simply because they disagree with the President on politics.
In fact, the Golden State Warriors made such a big deal about their desire to not visit the Trump White House, with star players like Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, and their head coach Steve Kerr continuously attacking the President with the same talking points one would expect from San Fransisco Liberals like Nancy Pelosi, the President personally disinvited the entire franchise.
But while professional sports teams have led the charge against visiting the Trump White House, college football’s national champions have continued to visit the President without an ill word uttered.
Take the 2018 National Champion Alabama Crimson Tide for example.
On Tuesday, head coach Nick Saban – a guy awesome enough to place several calls to perspective recruits from inside the White House – and the Crimson Tide rolled into Washington, D.C. to celebrate their latest national championship with President Trump.
Apparently, prior to the visit, Coach Saban does what he does best – he laid out a plan for how his team was to handle the White House visit.
“Coach Saban addressed it and just said, ‘Hey, we’re doing this regardless of your political thoughts,” Alabama center Ross Pierschbacher said. “‘We’re going, just to celebrate this team. It’s an honor. And just to be able to say that you’ve gone to the White House is something that you can cherish forever.’ So that was basically the extent of that.”
And the players followed their coach’s lead.
“It’s an incredible honor for us to be invited to the White House,”Alabama running back Damien Harris said. “It’s something that comes with being national champions, so we’re definitely thankful for the opportunity.”
But while the stark difference between the behavior of 18-22 year old college kids and their grown, middle-aged professional counterparts is fascinating and worth noting, it was something that actually happened at the White House celebration that still has people talking.
According to a Tweet from WBRC News reporter Christina Chambers out of Birmingham, an inspiring moment occurred when the event concluded, as Alabama senior punter J.K. Scott and some of his teammates and coaches approached President Trump to ask if they could pray for the President and his staff.

President Trump also took to Twitter after the event to express what a “great honor” it was to host the national champs.
Today, it was my great honor to welcome the 2017 NCAA Football National Champion, Alabama Crimson Tide – to the White House. Congratulations! #RollTidehttps://t.co/hF5EZHlSVS pic.twitter.com/JfGue4IIs1

Saban, a six-time college football national champion head coach, also took time to express his appreciation for the White House visit and the President himself.
“You know, not many people get invited to the White House, so not many people get invited to see the president and meet the president,” Saban said. “So this is a special day for our team. A team that is being honored here because of their achievements in terms of winning the college football national championship, which makes me very proud.”
“A special thanks to our president to invite us here and make this a special day for us,” Saban continued. “President Trump, thank you so much.”
That’s the definition of class.
Colin Kaepernick Posts Anti-American Video on July 4th, Calls Independence Day a ‘Celebration of White Supremacy’
Kaepernick hates the country that has given him so much.
Washed up former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick yet again showed his hatred of America on July 4th by making a social media post calling Independence Day a “celebration of white supremacy.”
Kaepernick posted a video featuring actor James Earl Jones reading Frederick Douglass’s historic speech, “What to the Slave is the Fourth of July,” over a montage of Klansmen, lynchings, police brutality, and slaves. The overriding message is that America is inherently racist, and the nation must be destroyed. This is part of a broader leftist effort to demonize Independence Day as they believe no American should celebrate their nation’s history.
“Black ppl have been dehumanized, brutalized, criminalized + terrorized by America for centuries, & are expected to join your commemoration of ‘independence’, while you enslaved our ancestors,” Kaepernick wrote in the post. “We reject your celebration of white supremacy & look forward to liberation for all.”
The video can be seen here:

Kapernick has demonstrated that hating America and fomenting racial division can be very lucrative these days with most multinational corporations taking orders from China. He has made far more money than he ever could have as a football player becoming the poster child for black dominance.
Big League Politics has reported on how Nike threw piles of cash at Kaepernick after he got down on his knees to show his hatred of his country:
A former NFL quarterback has been selected as the face of Nike’s “Just Do It” campaign for its 30-year anniversary.
Colin Kaepernick Tweeted the first image from this year’s campaign Monday afternoon.
“Believe in something,” he said. “Even if it means sacrificing everything. #JustDoIt”
Kaepernick started the NFL’s National Anthem protest controversy by kneeling for the Anthem in 2016. Players who have joined in the protest say that it is about recognizing unfair treatment of minorities by police.
In August of the same year, Kaepernick opted out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers in the same month, and has been jobless ever since.
But many NFL fans saw it as a sign of disrespect to the brave men and women who serve our nation each day. Fans launched a boycott of the league, which saw a ratings drop of about 10% in the 2017-2018 season.
Those same Americans are lashing out at the Nike brand.
Kaepernick could be considered a terrorist organizer now that the marxist Black Lives Matter mob is raising cities and targeting white people for violence.
