Michael Rapaport accomplished a seeming physical impossibility over the weekend — taking a knee while also planting a foot up President Donald Trump’s rear end (well, figuratively speaking, anyway).
“Atypical” star Rapaport tore into Trump on Saturday, after Trump revoked his invitation for the Golden State Warriors’ Stephen Curry to visit the White House.
In a blistering video posted to Twitter, Rapaport unleashed on Trump, asserting that “no one from the NBA is f–king with you!”
“Trump, you dumb motherf–ker, you’re talking sh-t about the Currys? Everybody loves the Currys!” Rapaport vented. “You dumb motherf–ker, don’t you even know who the Currys are? That’s like talking sh-t about Mickey Mouse!”
The actor then rattled off a litany of basketball pros who, in his estimation, have no interest in a meet-up with Trump.
“You took away his invitation to the White House to come meet you? Motherf–ker, no one from the NBA is f–king with you!” Rapaport fumed. “K.D., LeBron, Steve Kerr, Gregg Popovich, Yao Ming, Larry Bird — nobody is coming to f–k with you, man! No one wants to meet your ass!”
After addressing Trump’s chilly relations with the NBA, Rapaport went on to address the president’s criticism of former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who drew criticism from some quarters for deciding not to stand during the national anthem.
“And then you was talking sh-t about Kaepernick, saying, ‘Get that son of a b—h off the field!’ No, you fat motherf–ker — get that son of a b—h out of the motherf–king White House! Get him the f–k out!” the actor declared.
In a symbolic gesture that’s come to be associated with sports-related protests, Rapaport then dropped to one knee — with no small degree of physical discomfort.
“So now what’s gonna happen is we’re going to take a knee to you, you bloated motherf–ker, you,” Rapaport said. “You have any idea how uncomfortable this is for a 47-year-old Jewish man with a bad back and shin splints? We’re taking a knee to you, motherf–ker!”
