Whole gang with the 44th president of the United States today. 🙌🏽 (via @tonybee5)

A post shared by Draymond Green (@gsdraymondgreen) on

The Warriors aren’t visiting the White House during their annual trip to the nation’s capital, but they did visit former President Barack Obama.

A picture surfaced Thursday on social media of almost the entire roster posing with Obama. No coaches were present; just players.

In September 2017, after Golden State won its first NBA title with President Donald Trump in office, Trump tweeted, “Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team. Stephen Curry is hesitating, therefore invitation is withdrawn!”

In lieu of visiting the White House last February, the Warriors toured the National Museum of African American History and Culture with students from Kevin Durant’s hometown of Seat Pleasant, Md. After winning the NBA title again last June, Golden State needed no tweet from Trump to know it wouldn’t plan on attending the White House.

Seriously who would blame these guys for wanting to skip a visit with Tangerine Hitler and instead choose to hang with the coolest ex-president ever?

    OT What Ann Coulter says about Trump is disturbing:

      Don’t worry too much about Ann Coulter. She’s an imbecile and way too old for her bleached tresses.

    • AC/DC January 26, 2019 at 9:22 am

      I went into this fully clear-eyed. Again, we liked that about him. … We thought that he wouldn’t care about what the elites thought and he’d actually keep his promises on this. … I find his puffery really charming. … It makes me laugh. That’s fine. I like that about him. Just keep your promise and I’m right back in his camp.

      Maher then mentioned that Real Time had booked Coulter for next week’s episode. When the announcement prompted audience boos, Maher said about Coulter, “Yeah, that’s called a newsmaker. A policymaker. You’ll have to suck on that.”

        AC/DC: Did you catch when he said, “we can talk about that in bed later?”
        They are old (cough) friends in every sense of the word.

    Rumor has it Trump was going to buy KFC. It’s all his now!

    And afterwards, they all went out for a nice steak dinner with beautiful chocolate cake for dessert.

    Being invited to the White House used to be an honor.
    “Nah, we’d rather hang out HERE,” is perfectly legal.
    After McDonald’s Clemson, KFC and watermelon if available?

    OT/-“President Donald Trump had an “unusual” meeting with the wife of a Supreme Court justice, The New York Times reported Saturday.

    Virginia “Ginni” Thomas, the wife of Justice Clarence Thomas, requested the meeting while the two were dining with the president and Ivanka Trump.

    Ginni Thomas had a list of people she wanted Trump to appoint to his administration.
    he was joined at the meeting by a rogues’ gallery of far-right operatives, including anti-immigrant activists Frank Gaffney and Rosemary Jenks along with Connie Hair, the chief of staff to Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX).

    Ivanka Trump also attended part of the meeting, during which her father complained of the negative press she receives.

    “One woman in the group argued that women should not serve in the military because they do not have the physical capacity that men do, according to the people familiar with the events,” The Times reported.

    The meeting raised eyebrows among White House supporters, with “some close to Mr. Trump said it was inappropriate for Ms. Thomas to have asked for a meeting with the head of a different branch of government.”

    • Beaglemom January 26, 2019 at 12:50 pm

      Thomas’ wife has been for a very long time involved with the ALEC and with the Koch brothers and their bizarre billionaire anti-American agenda. She should never have involved herself so much in extremely partisan politics. And he should have been booted off the Supreme Court years ago for his many conflicts of interest. Just another pair of right-wing Republicans milking the system for all its worth.

    Randolph often Tweeted that Trump is a chess player and others in government are playing checkers: “Trump is very intentional. He doesn’t make spelling errors. We might not see it right away, but there’s always a message in his mis-spellings. He’s a chess player, and always five moves ahead. It’s important to think critically.”

    comments she made on Twitter before her account was made private and inaccessible to the public, just as the reader predicted. That happened shortly after the news broke that Randolph would soon be setting higher education policy in Alaska as a regent.

    “Barack Obama. Kindly F—- Off. #MAGA”

    Of Michelle Obama, she said, “That high horse Michelle is on makes her ass look big.” ” “Just a reminder of how bad it was,” Randolph said, “Well, she’s a he, so….”

    “Here’s the actual facts on the matter, @lisamurkowski. You posturing with a parade of rape victims is doing nothing relevant. Get your shit together. You have completely forgotten who you represent here in Alaska. This will not be forgotten.”

    “I have opposed everything you have stood for. I hope you are finished in 2020,” she said of Murkowski. (Murkowski is not up for re-election in 2020.)

    “Nancy Pelosi is a fruitcake… no question.” “Little Adam Schitt is protesting just a little too loudly, yes?”

      Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) said that her colleagues didn’t care about the shutdown of the federal government except for when they were going through airport security, the Washington Post reported Saturday.

      In a feature about how the GOP was reeling from fallout over the shutdown, Murkowski said that she knew the shutdown was going to be a disaster from the start.

      “I came to the conclusion a long time ago that none of these are a good idea,” she said. “What I have heard from our conference is a greater number of voices that are saying, ‘Hey, this does not work so well. This is not a tool that we should be using.’”And yet, the Post reports Murkowski told reporters that other Republicans “never really felt the urgency” to end the shutdown “except perhaps when they were going through airport security.”

      “It was stunning to me,” Murkowski said.

      According to previous Washington Post reporting, some GOP senators did scream at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Vice President Mike Pence at a luncheon meeting about the shutdown.”

      • Beaglemom January 27, 2019 at 2:50 am

        Will Murkowski support legislation to eliminate government shutdowns from the vocabulary of national politics? Shutdowns were invented by the GOP and were inspired by Ronald Reagan’s campaigning in 1980 with the federal government as the biggest villain out there.

    It would be nice if some groups that do some good for society get invited to the WH once in awhile, not just these football and basketballs players.

    Why bother to go to the White House? You can get a Big Mac anywhere.

    About time the shunning of Trump has started.

    How many heads of states have visited Trump compared to Obama? Could it be world leaders are also washing their hair that week when Trump invites them for a visit? Aside from Theresa May and Vladimir Putin, who else would bother to go to the White House to meet Trump?
