Roommates, NBA star JR Smith had more than a little bit to get off his chest when it comes to how the White House is operating after multiple members, including Trump himself, contracted COVID-19. JR took to Twitter to post a series of tweets explaining why he feels that there needs to be a definite change taking place.
JR Smith posted the following lengthy tweets regarding the way that the Trump administration is responding to the COVID-19 pandemic—specifically testing and how easy it is for athletes to test in comparison to others.
JR’s tweets read:
“I’ve been tested every single day since being in the bubble! How is it Congress doesn’t have a testing protocol? Just watching #CNN. So I can’t get food delivered from an app without having to quarantine 14 days but the press secretary has been exposed to people as well as the president and don’t have to quarantine at all… #athletesRUNtheWorld”
He continued, adding:
“It’s really gotten to the point where the voice of an athlete is more important an effective than the president… #ijs think about the most respected sports figures an let them do one thing inappropriate to looks of society a pose to the actual actions of this “President.” Their careers would be over! How dare we let our kids look up to people like you. Just complete disgust.. it’s truly amazing.”
JR Smith’s tweets come just after Trump was officially released from Walter Reed hospital following his reported COVID-19 diagnosis.
