Did Leafs' Nazem Kadri, A Muslim, Just Use Donald Trump's Stupidity To Take A Cheap Shot At America?
Fox Sports- If Trump's idea of a ban applies to athletes as well, Kadri would presumably be prevented from traveling to the U.S., something which would clearly be an issue for an NHL player who frequently travels between the U.S. and Canada for games.
"I think he’s hurting his own campaign, to be honest,” Kadri told the Toronto Star. “I mean, I think he’s pretty delusional. But his opinion’s his opinion.”
"It’s unfortunate that this is what it’s come to. But I mean, that being said, I’m lucky to live in a country like Canada, where people of political stature don’t say those kinds of things to make people feel out of place."
That's it, shut down the borders, and I am not talking about the the ones that border the Southern states. Sorry Canadians, but Nazem Kadri just cost you your freedom to enter the best country on Earth. It's not a Muslim thing, just a pride thing. Bring in all the refugees, I have no problem with the people that want to be here. It's the people throwing shade from beyond our "walls" that I would rather leave standing out in the cold. What the fuck was that Nazem? Couldn't just take a shot at Donald Trump and his blatantly racist "campaign" without taking an unwarranted jab at Big Brother? You know most Americans think Donald Trump is delusional too, right? You know we don't endorse the ridiculous things he is saying? In fact, until the part where you basically implied that you are lucky you don't live in the United States, your quote on Trump was fairly complimentary. A person of political stature? That's like the nicest thing someone above the Mason Dixon line has ever said about Donald Trump.
Sorry Nazem, didn't mean for America's celebrity "politician" to offend you, but in this country we value free speech, even if Donald Trump's speech happens to call freedom into question. At least in Toronto you don't have to worry about people in positions of power doing and saying absurd things strictly for publicity, right? By the way, tell Rob Ford I said hello. I'd love to grab a beer and take a couple pulls of crack with him next time I'm in town. You think he's free now that he's no longer the Mayor of Toronto, or is he too busy making a mockery of his current position as City Councilman? I get it. I would probably be pretty pissed if some douchebag in a neighboring region was denouncing the entirety of my religion too, but that's no reason to take aim at the country for which he's doing it in. Especially when your own country has had it's fair share of issues with politicians of questionable intent...
