Trump Loses His Mind After Cleveland Indians Change Their Team Name
There is really no platform behind the Donald Trump version of the Republican party. The key ingredient, of course, is white grievance. Then there’s the matter of just combating anything the Democrats try to pass. And most importantly for the GOP, is continuing to fight the culture war.
And that means fighting against any kind of change. Especially if that change has to do with healing past racial wounds. So it is no surprise that Donald Trump lost his mind on Friday after the Cleveland Indians announced they would be changing their name to the Guardians.
Unlike any president in American history, Trump decided this was a topic that he needed to weigh in on. He wrote in a statement, “Can anybody believe that the Cleveland Indians, a storied and cherished baseball franchise since taking the name in 1915, are changing their name to the Guardians? Such a disgrace.”
Trump continued, “I guarantee that the people who are most angry about it are the many Indians of our Country. Wouldn’t it be an honor to have a team named the Cleveland Indians, and wouldn’t it be disrespectful to rip that name and logo off of those jerseys?”
The unhinged former president closed his remarks, ““The people of Cleveland cannot be thrilled and I, as a FORMER baseball fan, cannot believe things such as this are happening. A small group of people, with absolutely crazy ideas and policies, is forcing these changes to destroy our culture and heritage. At some point, the people will not take it anymore!”
