NBA players took unprecedented action on Wednesday by refusing to play playoff games in the wake of the Jacob Blake shooting. The players have reportedly decided to resume the playoffs this weekend.
The protests by the NBA players led to teams from other sports following suit and postponing games. On Thursday President Trump was asked about the NBA players protesting.
Trump replied by taking a shot at the league's ratings and saying people were tired of the NBA, "I don't know much about the NBA protest. I know their ratings have been very bad, because I think people are a little tired of the NBA."

If you want a hot take on sports just ask Trump, he has no problem trying troll people. Someone needs to tell him to stick to politics and to just shut up and president.
