If you thought the Trump Derangement Syndrome could not get any more ridiculous than it has already then you would be mistaken. This time it was the syndrome was released by a guest on MSNBC PoliticsNation with Al Sharpton.
The guest was former NBA player Craig Hodges who has authored the book “Long Shot: The Struggles and Triumphs of an NBA Freedom Fighter.” Hodges who is best known for being one of two people to every win 3 consecutive NBA Three Point Contest at the NBA All-Star Weekend and being a 2 time NBA champion with the Michael Jordan led Chicago Bulls in 1991 and 1992. While appearing on the September 25th edition of Al Sharpton’s PoliticsNation, Hodges was there to talk about President Trump’s criticism of the NFL players that was kneeling during the national anthem to protest racial injustices.

But what Craig Hodges said about President Trump was over the top even by the liberal standards set by show programming set forth by MSNBC and CNN:
SHARPTON: Let me show you this tweet he just recently put up encouraging people to, he put it up a few minutes ago today, telling people don’t go to the game. It says (quoting from the tweet), “If NFL fans refuse to go to games until players stop disrespecting our Flag & Country, you will see change take place fast. Fire or suspend!”
So is he trying to kind of front-end or interfere with those that are boycotting on behalf of (NFL quarterback/free agent Colin) Kaepernick?
HODGES: Well, first of all, Rev. Al, I want to thank God for giving us the opportunity to wake up this morning and speak on behalf of our people, you know, and honestly speaking when I look at where we are right now, it’s beyond us getting justice in America. It’s absolutely time for the Congressional Black Caucus to call for human rights violations that have occurred, past and previously, you know, and I think right now it’s a civil rights issue within the context of what President Trump said the other night and as far as hampering athletes to be able to employ or get employment or gain employment.
And, you know, when I think about his whole thing is when was Amer-, make America great again. Now we see that 1817 is more likely when he’s thinking about America being great as opposed to us kneeling on behalf of righteousness and justice, he wants us to be kneeling in the cotton fields again.
If anyone was thinking that Hodges was not serious about what he said, he accused president Trump of trying to provoke a race war:
“But it’s a different day in that we who are mindful we have to stand up and battle this thing and it can’t be us in a war of words, of back and forth. No, it’s about making moves, like I’m talking about, go to the World Court, reach outside of the nation for help from Brazil, Russia and China, India, South Africa, the BRICS nations who’ve made, invest in black people, because right now it’s a standard that he has set where he’s trying to set up race, a basic race war, and it’s ugly, man. And then to hear him just to go off on black women and women should be outraged all over planet earth.”
That was indeed ugly but as MSNBC, CNN, and the rest of the liberal Main Stream Media gets more and more desperate we said not be surprised what comes out of their mouths. But what made this even worse was Hodges invocation of the Almighty right before he accused President Trump of wanting to enslave millions of people all across America. Craig Hodges has truly been indoctrinated with the Liberalism disease.
