The mainstream media may have casually skipped over this story about a former pro athlete who was nearly bankrupt, but thanks to President Donald Trump, he was able to overcome that problem and become a very successful sports star. He was broke, nearly bankrupt, and on the verge of being a complete failure in life. Thanks to Trump helping out, he survived what could have been a terrible turn in his life. He is none other than former professional boxer George Foreman who was on the brink of a lifelong disaster, but turned out to be an extremely successful boxer and then business entrepreneur.
George Foreman was talking on a podcast about how much he loves America and then discussed his former life and how Trump helped pull him out of it. This is a story that not many people are aware of because it’s something that negates the “racist” accusations made by many of Trump’s critics. Would it make sense for a mainstream media outlet to suggest that President Donald Trump may have participated in making a black man successful? That wouldn’t fit the narrative of the media outlets that Trump often criticizes for being “fake news” nor would it go along the grain of the criticism proposed by numerous members of the Democrat party, particularly members who were, and still are, influential supporters of Hillary Clinton.
Foreman didn’t stop there when he expressed his love for America and how Trump was part of him coming out of monetary failure. Foreman also criticized the athletes like Colin Kaepernick for their unpatriotic antics.
The AJC wrote more on the topic: “Speaking on Offended America, Foreman suggested Durant and Kaepernick are unpatriotic because of some of their actions; Kaepernick became infamous for sitting down during renditions of “The Star Spangled Banner,” saying he could not show pride for a country that “oppresses black people,” and Durant recently said he would not visit the White house if the Golden State Warriors were invited. Durant said he doesn’t “respect who’s in office right now.”
“I love the United States,” Foreman, 68, said during the podcast. “They [Durant and Kaepernick] haven’t been brought up with people who were patriotic … A lot of people died so that they can have that privilege.”
The heavyweight champion insinuated their attitudes may be a sign of the times and that the athletes may be looking for attention.
“‘I got all this money, but nobody knows me. So let me say something like Muhammad Ali, and maybe I’ll be different.’ That’s all that is,” he said, mocking a potential perspective of the athletes. “We came in the era (when) we were patriotic. The greatest day of my life was when I put on the colors, representing the United States [during the Olympics].”
Foreman went on to voice his support of Trump.
“He’s a good president. A lot of people don’t like him, but evidently more do, because he was elected President of the United States,” he said.
Foreman also noted that Trump helped him decades ago when Trump sponsored a pay-per-view fight between him and Evander Holyfield in 1991.
“I was broke, too. Bankrupt. Put me back, he was part of writing those checks, so I could be on the wealthy side again. So I’ll always be grateful to the entrepreneur Donald Trump,” he said. “And now, President Donald Trump.”
Donald Trump has been helpful to many Americans. Black, white, male, female – it doesn’t matter what someone’s gender or racial identity is, but that doesn’t seem to matter to those who criticize the President for sake of making him look bad in hopes to present their agenda, whatever their agenda might be.
George Forman talked about being proud to be an American many years ago before we came upon the generation of people being called offensive for waving an American flag. The times have changed and it appears that many people who privy the Democrat party have found ways to be offended by people who wish to be proud of their country. Nowadays there are safe spaces for people who find themselves to be offended by the simplest of things, things which before were considered funny or all-American. The number of people living their lives as so-called “victims” is very concerning.

Patriots Former Tight End Martellus Bennett Just Made Sickening Allegation About Trump
He can’t be serious with these claims.
The most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by Breitbart.
Former Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett went on the attack Wednesday, accusing President Trump of “attacking black culture” with his criticism of NFL player protests during the national anthem.
Speaking to Bleacher Report, the former NFL player slammed Trump for his criticism of the protests and claimed that Trump’s attacks are just a way to tear down black role models.
“It’s the easiest way for him to attack the culture of black people,” the Super Bowl 51 champion said. “He sees the black athlete as someone that black people look up to. So he thinks you can attack black culture by attacking black NFL players.”
Bennett also implied that he thinks Trump’s voters are racially motivated. “Also, attacking black players helps him with his base,” he said.
Or, he pontificated, “maybe there’s no rhyme or reason. Maybe he’s just an asshole.”
Bennett has made his feelings about Trump known before. Last year he noted that he would not visit the Trump White House to celebrate his 2016 Super Bowl win, as a member of the New England Patriots.
He also took to Twitter to slam singer Kanye West for saying nice things about Trump. “So Kanye didn’t take the time to vote. And now he holding on to Trump’s coattail like Peter Pettigrew to Lord Voldemort. Kanye Pettigrew,” Bennett tweeted (then deleted) in December of 2016.
NFL Team Announces They Will Go Beyond Fines When Penalizing Players Who Kneel For Anthem
They’re not gonna like this!!
At least one NFL team has come to the conclusion that their money-losing race-baiting nonsense kneelers who ruin entertainment by abusing their platform to protest during work hours could be punished by suspending the players who engage in such pathetic behavior. I’m talking about the players who take a knee to protest and the Miami Dolphins are about to start punishing people for not having “Proper Anthem Conduct!” After a horrid 6-10 season last year, the Dolphins probably thought it was the least they could to do bring back fans who boycotted the NFL after a wave of activist millionaires started taking a knee. The only time “taking a knee” ever meant anything was when Tonya Harding allegedly had someone take Nancy Kerrigan’s knee back in 1994.
The Dolphins new policy suggests that any player who protests on the field during the national anthem might face a suspension of up to four games. That’s quite a few games lost for being a social justice warrior. Hopefully, the players who face this suspension are also losing their paycheck for those weeks.
This is quite an improvement for the NFL as teams with protesting players should always suspend them. It’s not their personal time, nor their platform to protest on. These players are at work and protesting during work hours should always be punishable by the boss. If any of us protested at work, then we would probably be disciplined too, especially if it made our customers turn their backs. Why should it be any different for football players?
“Miami Dolphins players who protest on the field during the national anthem could be suspended for up to four games under a team policy issued this week.
The “Proper Anthem Conduct” section is just one sentence in a nine-page discipline document provided to The Associated Press by a person familiar with the policy who insisted on anonymity because the document is not public. It classifies anthem protests under a large list of “conduct detrimental to the club,” all of which could lead to a paid or unpaid suspension, a fine or both.
Miami’s anthem policy comes after the NFL decided in May that teams would be fined if players didn’t stand during “The Star-Spangled Banner” while on the field. The league left it up to teams on how to punish players. None of the team policies have been made public.
The NFL rule forbids players from sitting or taking a knee if they are on the field or sidelines during the national anthem, but allows them to stay in the locker room if they wish. The new league rules were challenged this month in a grievance by the players union.”
The ‘take a knee’ nonsense dates back to when Colin Kaepernick was protesting and we all see how that turned out. He’s no longer in the league and at this point, there’s no chance for him to come back. He keeps getting older and likely deteriorating. See what social justice did to him? It cost him his career. What does he do now? Hopefully, he saved some of the money he made while playing, that way he can survive, but he could have been earning millions more for him to spend, donate, or invest. If he’s broke, then oh well. Serves him right for dissing the American flag like that.
When people abuse their platform in entertainment, then fans are often turned off by it. We watch sports, television programs, and movies as a form of entertainment and escapism. We want to be immersed into a story, drama, and something that’s simply there to keep us entertained for an hour or two. As soon as people start protesting during sports, then some people are like “no thanks” and immediately shut it down.
People don’t like protesters and they don’t like their entertainment ruined. What happens when you combine the two? It’s like mixing bleach and ammonia. It’s a very bad idea and it could kill their careers.
We have a few months until the regular season begins for the NFL. That means a lot of teams have plenty of time to get their punishments ready for the disrespectful players.
