Warriors announce where they’ll go in lieu of White House, because they actually think it matters

The NBA Champion Golden State Warriors have released a statement on their potential visit to the White House to meet President Donald Trump.

The team announced, hours after President Trump rescinded the invitation, that they would not be going to meet him, but they are still going to the Capitol.

The team announced they would make the trip “in February to celebrate equality, diversity and inclusion,” in a statement released on the team’s website Saturday.

“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,” the statement read.

Trump ticked off some NFL players last night and they fired back. Boo hoo, boys.

“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.”

Kind of anticlimactic after you were dis-invited.
