Donald Trump on London’s Muslim Mayor – “I don’t care about him”

sadiq and trump

He’s not even in the White House or in any position to make a single foreign policy change, yet, Donald Trump is already showing one of America’s allys that he doesn’t care about them or their leaders.

After London elected its first Muslim mayor, Trump and the new mayor, Sadiq Khan, have gone back and forth hauling insults at each other.

“When he won, I wished him well,” he said of Sadiq Khan on ITV’s “Good Morning Britain.” “Now I don’t care about him.”

“Let’s see if he’s a good man,” the GOP’s presumptive presidential nominee added. “It doesn’t make any difference to me how he does.”

London elected Khan on May 6, making the son of Pakistani immigrants the first Muslim mayor of a major Western capital.

Khan has since repeatedly criticized Trump’s remarks on Islam, arguing that the billionaire has “an ignorant” view of the religion and does not deserve to win the White House.

“I’m hoping that he’s not the guy who wins,” the Labor Party member said on May 11. “My message to Donald Trump and his team is that your views of Islam are ignorant.”

A Sad Month In The NBA

Part of me cried a little today. Today marks the retirement of Tracy McGrady, this month marked the retirement of Allen Iverson as well. Goodbye Tracy McGrady. Goodbye Allen Iverson

Allen Iverson aka “The Answer”, a former first round pick for the Philadelphia 76ers, lived up to his high draft pick. Allen is historically one of the 76ers greatest players to ever wear their uniform, add to that his ROTY (Rookie of the Year) award, a NBA MVP, multiple:scoring titles, All Star selections and NBA First Team selections, lastly a 2001 Finals appearance; A.I has quite a nice resume for any NBA player.

“The Answer” will probably be best remembered for his “practice” rant that signaled his end in a 76ers uniform. Past that rant though, he’ll be remembered for his killer cross over, his one handed put back dunk, and his amazing Game 1 Finals performance in 2001.

Allen’s legacy will be an interesting one. He revolutionized the Point Guard position, proved a little guy can hang with the best, and brought about a cultural revolution in the NBA (tattoos, corn rows, oversized jerseys); on the flip side though he will be remembered for being selfish, a cancer to teams, and a coach killer.

Tracy McGrady aka T Mac was a former 9th round draft pick for the Toronto Raptors. He may have played up to his superstar potential but never achieved the success others did. T Mac was a prolific scorer and earned multiple scoring titles, All Star selections and NBA First Team selections as well; sadly T Mac never took his own team to the Finals, let alone past the first round of the playoffs.

T Mac will be best remembered for the classic performance he put on against the Spurs where he scored 13 points in 35 seconds! McGrady will also be remembered for his amazing dunks and his offensive dominance.

Tracy McGrady’s legacy is also an interesting one. He had the superstar potential to be one of the best, in his prime years he easily was the best. Sadly due to injuries he never was able to win it all.

This month marks the end of two of the great players in the NBA. While these two men have no rings between the two, their names are still talked about today and I will tell my kids about Allen Iverson and Tracy McGrady. I hope to see both in the NBA Hall Of Fame as soon as they’re eligible.
