Donald Trump Jr.’s Comments On LeBron James Have The Internet Seeing Red

Published

on

In two Instagram posts made on his official account, former President Donald Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., poked fun at the incident that took place between LeBron James and the unruly fans at the Los Angeles Lakers-Indiana Pacers basketball game on Sunday. The first post featured a video of the interaction between James and the fans, along with the caption, “Is there a bigger b**** in pro sports than LaSnitch?” The second Instagram post turned the interaction into a meme, with Trump Jr. putting a “Karen” wig on James and captioning the photo, “LaKaren wants to speak to the manager!!!”

Almost immediately after posting those comments about James to his Instagram page, fans of James were quick to throw shade at Trump Jr. “Don Jr. out here calling Lebron James a b****,” a Twitter user said. “I’m sure Donny would definitely say that in Lebron’s face. He’s the roughest, toughest trust fund baby ever seen.” Other Twitter users were quick to point out the fact that, while James has worked hard for his fame and accomplishments, Trump Jr. is famous for being Donald Trump’s son. Donald Trump Jr calling LeBron James a “b****” for having a couple sitting court-side kicked out of a game for saying, ‘I hope your son does in a car wreck.’ Don Jr — literally no personal accomplishments. Born white. And rich. The end. Here’s LeBron’s legacy…” another Twitter user said while retweeting a post detailing the basketball player’s accomplishments.

No new Covid cases in 8 districts in region | Nagpur News

on

Nagpur: Only three districts in Vidarbha — Nagpur, Chandrapur and Yavatmal — reported new Covid cases accounting for all nine patients on Monday. Overall testing was poor across the region, but it was abysmally low in the eight districts which did not report any new cases.
Wardha, with just five, was the worst performer as far as testing was concerned. Bhandara, Akola, Buldhana and Washim were the other districts where testing was below 100-mark.
The Covid testing figures in the region crashed by more than half to little over 3,000. Sunday being a holiday, sample collection centres were closed, though the state Covid Task Force has called for increased testing to ensure the situation doesn’t go out of hand all of a sudden. Another reason for low testing was that some of these districts haven’t reported any new case for the last couple of days. Hence, there are few close or high-risk contacts left to be tested.
The day also saw 18 recoveries in Vidarbha, leaving 121 patients under treatment.
In Nagpur district, of the five new cases, two were from rural, one from city and two from outside district. The district has 43 patients under treatment now.
Yavatmal: No deaths kept the toll unchanged at 1,787. Currently, there are 13 active positive patients under treatment. The administration received 111 reports of which one was found positive. Of the 72,937 positive patients, 71,137, including one on Monday, have recovered. The test positivity rate is 9.53 %, death rate 2.45 % and daily positivity rate 0.90 %. There are 1,759 beds available for Covid patients in hospitals across the district.
Wardha: Five patients were discharged after recovery, leaving active positive just two as no new positive case was reported from 5 reports of Monday. Total recoveries increased to 48,094 and total cases and toll remained unchanged at 4,9426 and 1,326 respectively.
Amravati: No new case, no recovery and no Covid death marked Monday. This left 15 active cases under treatment.
Chandrapur: With four recoveries as against just a solitary detection, the figure of active patients further climbed down to 11 on Monday. The day again remained casualty free. There were 193 tests conducted during the last 24 hours and only one patient was found positive. A total of 7,61,931 samples have been tested out of which 6,71,501 tested negative. The caseload has moved up to 88,852, including 87,298 recoveries and 1,543 deaths.
Washim: The district did not report any new Covid case or recovery on Monday. Thus, the patient tally remains at 4. The district conducted 78 tests in the day. No death took place on Monday.
Gondia: No new Covid case was reported despite testing 293 samples. No discharge or Covid death took place, while seven patients remained under treatment.
Bhandara: The district neither reported any new Covid case, nor discharge on Monday. Two patients are under treatment. Only 16 samples were tested in the district on Monday.
Akola: The district reported zero new cases and recoveries on Monday, keeping the number of under-treatment patients at 10 after conducting 56 tests.
Gadchiroli: The district reported no new Covid cases on Monday after 258 tests, but saw one patient recovering. It now has 4 patients under treatment.
Buldhana: The district has 10 patients under treatment as on Monday, while no new Covid patient was detected in the day in 40 tests, but saw one recovery.

Football: Captains plot their moves as they seek a victory of sorts

PETALING JAYA: For Kuala Lumpur captain Paulo Josue, featuring in the 100th anniversary of the Malaysia Cup final today is something he will remember for a lifetime.

But he does not want to be just part of a historic game. The Brazilian aims to lead his players to a stunning win against their illustrious opponents.

The 32-year-old, who has been one of the top providers in the competition with six assists, said he is excited to be playing in front of a big crowd again.

“Not only that, I think all eyes in Malaysia will be watching the game. It’s a huge privilege for me to be there in Bukit Jalil with our supporters. As captain, I can assure the fans we’ll give our 100%,” said the midfielder.

“It will be tough because we are facing the biggest side in South-East Asia. They’ve won the Super League eight times in a row, so there isn’t much to say about their greatness.

“Coach Bojan (Hodak) just told us to go and enjoy the game. Keep to the game plan, especially in defence and when we have the chance to attack, make sure we hurt them.”

JDT captain and goalkeeper Mohd Farizal Marlias said the players are highly motivated to defend the title and added that a win tonight was crucial as it would be historic.

“We want to put JDT’s name on the trophy because it’s the 100th anniversary. It will be meaningful for the club and us,” said the 35-year-old.

“We have played with them twice before and once allowed them to score through a set piece, it was a lesson to us. So we have to be more focused and not make mistakes in front of goal,” said the 35-year-old goalkeeper.

“We can’t take them for granted. They have strengths, too but what’s important is us, our own preparations.”

Meanwhile, Kuala Lumpur’s veteran defender Shukor Adan, 42, revealed that the final would be his last game after announcing that he would hang up his boots after 24 years in the sport.

“Whether I’m playing in the final or not, I’m proud of Kuala Lumpur,” said Shukor, who has won the Malaysia Cup four times in 2002, 2005, 2009 and 2011.

“For me, it’s best not to mention the past, because this is the new generation. The game has evolved and whoever is entrusted to play tonight, I’m sure they will give their best.

“Winning the Malaysia Cup would surely be a sweet end to my career.”
