    1) There is more to the story, he also called his supporters a bunch of simpletons, that didn't work well for Hitlery and he
    should be disciplined.
    2) I don't think that the newscasters and sportscasters should be picking sides in our politics. Just read the news stories
    and let us decide.

    Sports people should be neutral in politics.

    Hollywood, pro sports, there is no difference. They all live in their elitist world.

    Since hw does live in Chicago, perhaps Mr Giangreco should take a walk in Chicago's South Side (preferably at night). Then he could meet some real "lunatics". Being a white guy, he probably wouldn't survive to tell the story.
    Latest stats from that city for 2017 ; Shot & killed = 114......Shot & wounded = 505. Yet Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel does nothing.
    Who is the real "lunatic' - afraid to come out of his downtown Chicago Mayor's office without bodyguards?
    www.heyjackass.com < Read the day to day stats on Chicago murder and violence.
    Maybe this sports guy should pay more attention to what's happening around him in his own city.

    I think he is a little bit radical.

    The sportsman’s tweet was in reply to a tweet by Canadian sports columnist Bruce Arthur who on February 19 tweeted, “Donald Trump: a hateful ignorant corrupt simpleton supported by 87% of Republicans.”

    ------------------
    It seems Canada can say what they want with no reprisal

    A little lower camera angle and you would've been in it too.
