Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) legend Conor McGregor saluted another battler who has overcome the odds, President Donald J. Trump.
In a rare and some would say daring tweet, sports superstar and UFC champion Conor McGregor had the cojonas to praise Donald Trump tweeting “Phenomenal President”.
McGregor ‘s tweet also inserted the image of a goat, shorthand for “Greatest of All Time.”
“Most certainly one of them anyway, as he sits atop the shoulders of many amazing giants that came before him. No easy [feat]. Early stages of term also. Incredible. Congrats and Happy Martin Luther King Jr. day America,” McGregor said.
The Irish UFC legend responded to President Trump’s MLK day tweet celebrating low black unemployment as the practical realization of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s work to bring equality of opportunity to all Americans.
“It was exactly three years ago today, January 20, 2017, that I was sworn into office. So appropriate that today is also MLK jr DAY. African-American Unemployment is the LOWEST in the history of our Country, by far. Also, best Poverty, Youth, and Employment numbers, ever. Great!” Trump tweeted.
Phenomenal President. Quite possibly the USA ?. Most certainly one of them anyway, as he sits atop the shoulders of many amazing giants that came before him. No easy feet.
Early stages of term also.
Congrats and Happy Martin Luther King Jr. day America ??❤️??
