This year’s Democratic National Convention wrapped up on Thursday. Among those to speak was a basketball legend who mocked the Republican presidential nominee.
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar addressed the crowd at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia and wasted little time getting an applause from those on hand. After taking the stage, the NBA Hall of Famer said, “Hello everyone. I’m Michael Jordan, and I’m here with Hillary.” He followed that up with “I said that because I know that Donald Trump couldn’t tell the difference.”

How’s that for coming out firing?
Abdul-Jabbar, of course, converted to Islam and during his speech had some harsh words for Trump for his views pertaining to Muslims. While Abdul-Jabbar certainly isn’t the only one to criticize Trump, his opening was definitely a popular one.

Yup, that pretty much sums it up.
