Trump Goes Full Racist: Wants NASCAR’s Bubba Wallace to Apologize to Fellow Drivers
In the midst of the George Floyd protests, NASCAR decided to ban confederate flags from being displayed at their events. The move was celebrated by the sport’s only African American driver, Bubba Wallace. Days later, a “garage pull” that looked very much like a noose was found in Wallace’s garage.
The discovery, which the FBI said was not a crime, led to Wallace’s fellow drivers walking alongside his car in solidarity. Now Donald Trump is asking the Wallace to apologize to those drivers for the incident.
The President took to Twttier, writing, “Has Bubba Wallace apologized to all of those great NASCAR drivers & officials who came to his aid, stood by his side, & were willing to sacrifice everything for him, only to find out that the whole thing was just another HOAX? That & Flag decision has caused lowest ratings EVER!”
Of course, Trump conveniently left out the fact the Wallace neither found, nor reported the noose. This was pointed out by writer Tony Posnanski, who replied, “Bubba Wallace wasn’t the one that found the noose. The only f*cking noose in any garage used in NASCAR as the president of NASCAR states. F*ck you: apologize for murdering 130,000 plus Americans for your incompetence and apologize that you can’t walk down a ramp.”
Bubba Wallace wasn’t the one that found the noose. The only fucking noose in any garage used in NASCAR as the president of NASCAR states. Fuck you: apologize for murdering 130,000 plus Americans for your incompetence and apologize that you can’t walk down a ramp.

After the FBI declared a crime wasn’t committed, Wallace said, “The photo evidence I’ve seen and have in my possession [shows] it was a garage pull that was a noose. I don’t know when we’ll get to the point that we’ll release that image … It’s alerting and it makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up. It was definitely in the shape of a noose. It wasn’t a functioning noose.”
