A post shared by Marquette King (@marquetteking) on

Oakland Raiders punter Marquette King is coming to the defense of his fellow Bay Area athletes in the wake of President Donald Trump’s latest incendiary remarks.

King held up a sign outside the White House reading, “Looks like this ‘son of a bitch’ revoked my invitation too! @StephenCurry30.”

Trump asked NFL owners to fire any player who protests during the national anthem, telling them to "get that son of a bitch off the field" in a rally Friday.

However, Trump wasn’t finished there. He took to Twitter, rescinding an invite to Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors to visit the White House. It is customary practice for the president to host the champions of all major North American professional and collegiate sports.

The Town isn’t having any of Trump’s remarks, nor have many athletes across the United States, including LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, and LeSean McCoy.

Barkley: Warriors not visiting White House ‘sets a bad precedent’

With several high-profile names from in and around the Association showing their support for the Golden State Warriors and Stephen Curry against President Donald Trump, Charles Barkley has elected to take a different stance altogether.

The current TNT analyst believes the Warriors – who had their "invitation" to visit Trump withdrawn – should desire to visit the White House. If they take issue with who's in charge, they should have put their political differences aside and articulated their grievances to him directly.

“I think it’s really unfortunate. I think that it’s an honor and privilege to go to the White House, no matter who the president is,” said Barkley during a phone interview with NBA TV Saturday. “And also, I thought it would have been an opportunity for those guys to sit down and talk to the president about some of the issues and concerns they had.

"We're all concerned about police brutality. I'm concerned about DACA. They could have negotiated a sit-down instead of just coming in, do that informal stuff where he stands there and you get your jersey and everything. It's unfortunate. It's just really sad, to be honest with you. When guys start not going to the White House because they don't like who the president is, I think that sets a bad precedent."

When Trump was made aware that Curry didn't want to attend, he took to Twitter to rescind his invite to the former back-to-back MVP and seemingly the rest of the organization. This spurred a sea of outrage from several notable NBA figures, including LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, and Chris Paul.

BREAKING: Cheeto Trump Snatches Back Warriors White House Invite

President Donald Trump has taken back the initial White House invitation to Golden State Warriors, using his favorite vehicle of Twitter to announce the rescinding this morning. The former business mogul apparently wrote the tweet in response to Warriors star Stephen Curry saying he would vote no to the traditional visit if it were left to him.

ESPN reports:

There had not been previous indication of a White House invitation for the Warriors, but it had been looking increasingly unlikely that the team would visit with Trump in Washington, D.C.

On Friday, Stephen Curry said he would vote no if the team were invited to the White House. Kevin Durant previously told ESPN’s Chris Haynes that he would not go to the White House either.

Warriors Coach Steve Kerr said earlier in the week that no decisions have been made from their side on whether or not the team would take the invitation. With Curry’s statement and the growing disdain from other athletes surrounding Trump’s policies, the events seemed all but inevitable.

This may be the first time such an invitation has been withdrawn. So perhaps the Golden State Warriors actually were woke as previously thought.

Silver ‘disappointed’ Warriors won’t visit White House, still ‘proud’ of players

NBA commissioner Adam Silver has remained steadfast in his belief that if one of his teams is invited to the White House, it should go, as the honor goes way beyond just who’s in power at the time.

With the news that the Golden State Warriors will not be visiting President Donald Trump after having their invitation withdrawn on social media, Silver feels it's unfortunate the reigning champions won't be able to address the leader of the nation face-to-face.

“I was in favor of the team visiting the White House and that it was a rare opportunity for these players to share their views directly with the President. I am disappointed that that will not happen,” wrote Silver in an official statement.

“More importantly, I am proud of our players for taking an active role in their communities and continuing to speak out on critically important issues.”

Golden State did visit former president Barack Obama when they captured the title in 2015. Head coach Steve Kerr suggested Saturday, though, that a lot has changed since then, and that the organization’s values don’t necessarily fall in line with that of Trump’s.

The NBPA has also chimed in with a statement of its own: “The National Basketball Players Association defends its members’ exercise of their free speech rights against those who would seek to stifle them. The celebration of free expression – not condemnation – is what truly makes America great.”

Sabathia would ‘never’ visit Trump in the White House if Yankees win WS

In the wake of President Donald Trump rescinding his already-rejected White House invitation to Stephen Curry, CC Sabathia of the New York Yankees echoed the sentiments of the Golden State Warriors point guard.

When prompted with the question of whether he'd visit the White House and Trump in the event of a World Series championship for the Yankees, Sabathia told Mike Mazzeo of the New York Daily News: "never."

“I just don’t believe in anything that is Trump,” the 37-year-old left-hander continued before Saturday’s game against the Toronto Blue Jays. “So there wouldn’t be any reason for me to go at all.”

Curry, who won his second championship with the Warriors in 2017, had his invitation to the White House taken back by the President over Twitter, due to alleged trepidation. In actuality, no such invitation had even been extended to the team by the administration, Warriors coach Steve Kerr told Ramona Shelburne of ESPN.

The two-time MVP expressed that he would vote against going to the White House when he and his team met to discuss the matter.

The Yankees can clinch a playoff berth with a victory over the Blue Jays on Saturday, and would likely sit 12 playoff wins away from a World Series – including the wild card game if the team falls short of usurping the Boston Red Sox for the division.

Whether other Yankees players would join Sabathia by sitting out a potential visit to the White House and Trump is largely conjecture, but counting the veteran pitcher out is a certainty.

Warriors release statement on rescinded White House invite

After President Donald Trump tweeted that the NBA champion Golden State Warriors wouldn't be invited to the White House this year, the team has responded with an official statement of their own.

Here is the Warriors' statement:

While we intended to meet as a team at the first opportunity we had this morning to collaboratively discuss a potential visit to the White House, we accept that President Trump has made it clear that we are not invited. We believe there is nothing more American than our citizens having the right to express themselves freely on matters important to them. We're disappointed that we did not have an opportunity during this process to share our views or have open dialogue on issues impacting our communities that we felt would be important to raise.

In lieu of a visit to the White House, we have decided that we'll constructively use our trip to the nation's capital in February to celebrate equality, diversity and inclusion – the values that we embrace as an organization.

An official invitation from the Trump administration was never actually tendered in the first place, according to ESPN's Ramona Shelburne.

While Trump indicated it was hesitation shown by guard Stephen Curry which led to the withdrawn invitation, both Curry and Kevin Durant have been fairly adamant that they wouldn't be participating in a White House visit if invited.

Piers Morgan Wants White Folks To Say N-Word, Black Twitter Shoves Him Out The Paint

Piers Morgan might be one of the most unlikeable and miserable human beings on the planet. Now that we got that out the way, the British journalist penned an essay defending a group of white sorority sisters rapping the “n-word” and actually defending it but Black Twitter got Morgan swiftly up out the paint.

It all began when Morgan, 52, published an essay via his outlet Daily Mail, which we won’t dignify with a link. In the piece, Morgan simply said that if Kanye West and other rappers insist on using the word, then white fans should have a right to say it as well. He also added that West should be at fault and not the Apha Phi sisters at the University of New Hampshire for using the term.

Naturally, Black Twitter seized on Morgan’s unnecessary and short-sighted essay then proceeded to give him the business to the point the journalist became a trending topic. We’ve collected some of the best Piers Morgan slander, which we’re always in the mood for, below and on the following pages.

Kylie Jenner Wears a Barely-There White Robe … Or Dress … Or Something

Kylie Jenner isn’t really known for her subtlety, so it’s good to be reminded that she knows more way to be seductive than posing in a fishnet bra.

Even when she’s just advertising things on Instagram, it’s great to see her wearing a dress!

Well … sort of. You’ll see.

Kylie Jenner posed in these two photos below.

She’s wearing what first looks like a very short bathrobe.

Now, Kylie is a SoCal girl through and through, meaning that she finds 60 degrees Fahrenheit to be “bitter cold.”

So as much as this girl likes to take off her clothes for the camera, we imagine that whatever bathrobe she wears off camera is probably one of those super thick ones so that she stays warm.

Don’t get us wrong, Kylie looks phenomenal in both photos, but it didn’t look like something that she’d choose to wear in her everyday life.

Well, we naturally looked at the captions.

We weren’t surprised to find that it was an ad.

We were surprised to learn something else, though.

Like we said, she looks great.

But this isn’t a robe at all, allegedly.

According to the company that sells these (and Kylie is definitely modeling in this as an ad, even tagging it as ad, which is great since other stars are getting in trouble with the FTC for posting Instagram ads without the tag), this is a dress.

Yes, really.

(We’re not defending that Fashion Nova choose to call this a dress, mind you, just … assuring you that this is the label that they have chosen)

Specifically? This is called the “Sugar Free Dress.”

But whatever they choose to call it, we wouldn’t recommend wearing this to a job interview or trying to wear it to prom.

Kylie looks great in it, but it really does look like it’s just one slight slip away from baring … something.

But hey, there are some parties where an adult would look great in this.

Kylie’s been doing a lot over the past couple of years to shed her imagine of being a kid.

She’s been very successful, despite being the youngest member of a celebrity family and despite growing up in front of the eyes fo millions of viewers.

(Also, she’s just been very successful, period — she’s a makeup mogul whose business could be worth a billion dollars in just a few years)

Life of Kylie didn’t get the best ratings.

There are no guarantees that it will be renewed for another season, no matter how inexpensive reality shows are to film.

Part of that is because the popularity of specific types of reality shows waxes and wanes.

Part of that is because nobody wants to sit around and listen to Kylie whine about being famous for a half hour.

But these pics are as good of a reminder as any that Kylie can still share bits of her life and monetize it through social media.

So even if her show never again sees the light of day, Kylie’s clearly not going anywhere.
