Days after the WNBA’s Seattle Storm won the women’s basketball championship, they quickly shifted from sports to the political realm to announce that they won’t be visiting the White House as long as President Trump lives there.
The Storm closed out their series against the Washington Mystics on Tuesday for the third title in franchise history and star point guard Sue Bird – the carpet muncher who was featured nude with her lesbian lover on the cover of ESPN’s “Body Issue” earlier this year struck a defiant pose for the Resistance by running to the media to reject the customary invitation extended to sports champions.
There is, however, the matter that they haven’t even been invited and as Trump has shown with smack-talking SJW loudmouths like the NBA’s Golden State Warriors and the NFL’s Philadelphia Eagles, Bird and her teammates shouldn’t hold their breath waiting for it.

In case you missed the Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA) championship last week, the Seattle Storm beat the Washington Mystics 98-82.
After the game, Storm point guard Sue Bird said the team would decline an invitation to the White House should one be offered.
“At this point does it even need to be discussed?” said Bird, a 17-year veteran, according to the Seattle Times. “It’s come up. We pay attention to what happened with Minnesota and not getting invited. … We all pay attention to what’s going on.”
But then she said, “It’s a huge disappointment. [It] used to be something that’s really special and something that was an honor and you look forward to.”
Hmm. So you’d look forward to being invited and then going to the White House, but you’re declaring that you wouldn’t accept an invitation? Yeah, OK.
Now just watch until they are not invited and then the media and liberal freaks will squeal like pigs that Trump’s a misogynist homophobe. The players may change but it’s always the same script with the political left.
