Boxing champ Floyd Mayweather Jr. recently gave an interview to Hollywood Unlocked and when they started getting political, he surprised everyone by sticking up for President Trump. Mayweather said people need to focus more on their own lives than wasting time protesting.
Here’s a transcript via Truth Revolt:
I think a lot, within this world, like I said, racism still exists. You never heard anything about Donald Trump being racist until he ran for president and won. Before that, everyone was like, “Oh, he on WWE. He on different shows.” Everybody, they liked Donald Trump. As soon as he ran for president, because, people don’t like the truth.
Mayweather also dismissed news media apoplexy over the released Access Hollywood (“grab her by the p****”) tape:
He speak like a real man spoke. Real man speak, like, “Man, she had a fat a**. Did you see that a**? I had to squeeze her a**. I had to grab that fat a**.” Right?
So, he talkin’ locker room talk. You know what I’m sayin’? “I’m the man. You know me, I grabbed her by the p****. And?”
I feel people shy away from realness. This man didn’t do nothin’. Hey, listen. If y’all didn’t want the man in the White House, y’all should’ve voted the other way. He didn’t rob, he done his homework. He done what he had to do and he got there. I’m not here to knock nobody.
Watch the clip below. STRONG LANGUAGE WARNING:
Good for him for thinking for himself. He makes some great points!
