This past weekend saw Conor McGregor secure yet another UFC victory under his belt. The entire sports world watched as this fighter dominated his opponent in 40 seconds. Soon after, they were shocked when he replied to an MLK Day tweet from Donald Trump. The champ’s comments about the president aren’t what you’d expect. Simply put, Democrats are furious.
Conor McGregor is one of the most iconic figures in MMA fighting. He’s won a total of twenty-two fights in his career. He’s become so associated with the sport—and the UFC league—that few wouldn’t recognize his name or trademark style.
The Irish athlete just won another title over the weekend in a brutally short fight against Donald Cerrone. After taking him out in the first round, the judges gave him a TKO. The fight only lasted forty seconds, securing McGregor’s reputation as one of the most effective, and dangerous, fighters in the world.
Why is this so important? Because millions of eyes were on the athlete after his amazing win. And what did he do just days after winning another belt? He responded to a tweet by President Trump commemorating Martin Luther King Day. What the fighter had to say was simply shocking.
UFC champion Conor McGregor expressed strong support for President Donald Trump on Monday night, saying that he was a phenomenal president and possibly the greatest of all time.
McGregor’s remarks came in response to Trump tweeting: “It was exactly three years ago today, January 20, 2017, that I was sworn into office. So appropriate that today is also MLK jr DAY. African-American Unemployment is the LOWEST in the history of our Country, by far. Also, best Poverty, Youth, and Employment numbers, ever. Great!”
McGregor responded: “Phenomenal President. Quite possibly the USA 🐐. Most certainly one of them anyway, as he sits atop the shoulders of many amazing giants that came before him. No easy feet. Early stages of term also. Incredible. Congrats and Happy Martin Luther King Jr. day America.” [Source: Daily Wire]
“Goat” of course is a short way of saying “Greatest of all time.”
That’s right, the UFC champ is calling Donald Trump the greatest president our country has ever seen. He continued to praise Trump’s accomplishes after only serving the “early stages” of his first term. He said Trump’s victories were “incredible” and wished the country a Happy Martin Luther King Day.
As far as his reputation is concerned, McGregor isn’t known for being overtly political. But, like most popular figures in the media (and from Europe), the left most certainly hoped he was liberal. Instead, he bucks the left’s narrative by praising President Trump and congratulating him on his success.
There are a few notable athletes, from various sports, who have come out in support of the president. But I don’t think anyone was expecting Conor—the biggest name right now in the UFC—to shower him with such praise.
You can imagine the kind of backlash that comes when a public figure openly endorses the president. Liberals sic their rabid social media dogs on anyone that says something even remotely positive about the president. Users suffering from severe Trump Derangement Syndrome try to “cancel” athletes, comedians, actors, and anyone else that seems to believe in Trump and his agenda.
We all saw what they tried to do to Kanye West, after all.
It takes a strong person, who is unafraid of the media, to come out and support Donald Trump. And Conor McGregor is that kind of person. He probably knows all about the hate leftists show to Trump anyone that supporters him.
But after winning another championship, he comes out with a full-throated endorsement for Trump. He went beyond what most people say, calling Trump the greatest of all time.
Many people around the world will hear about his comments. Some will be outraged. Many will cheer. And some, who thought Trump was a bad guy, will start to reconsider.
The left’s dam is breaking big time. They thought they could control everything celebrities say. Not anymore.
