When NBA player LeBron James’ butt buddy Stephen Curry lost his invitation to visit the White House due to his disrespect, James had to come to the rescue. How adorable.
Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team.Stephen Curry is hesitating,therefore invitation is withdrawn!

LeBron called President Trump a “bum” for retracting the invitation for the Golden State Warriors to visit the White House after their championship victory.
He tweeted, “You bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain’t going! So therefore ain’t no invite. Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up!”
U bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain't going! So therefore ain't no invite. Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up!

Perhaps he thinks that because the previous president bowed down to BLM and terrorists, and kissed basically everyone’s butt while he was down there?
A formal White House invitation has not been issued, but the NBA has been in contact with the White House about the issue, ESPN reported.
Curry had said this week he didn’t want the Warriors to visit the White House because of Trump.
Curry said his reasons for not wanting to visit the White House were “that we basically don’t stand for what our president has said, and the things he hasn’t said at the right time,” according to SF Gate.
“By not going, hopefully it will inspire some change for what we tolerate in this country and what we stand for, what is accepted and what we turn a blind eye toward,” he said.
Curry said, “You can talk about all the different personalities that have said things and done things from [Colin] Kaepernick to what happened with Michael Bennett to all sorts of examples of what has gone on in our country that has led to change.”
He continued, “We’re all trying to do what we can, using our platforms, our opportunities, to shed light on it. I don’t think not going to the White House will miraculously make everything better. But this is my opportunity to voice that.”
Well, that’s okay. No one will be losing any sleep over basketball players deciding not to go to the White House to prove some kind of point.
We are laughing at them, not with them.
