Bobby Lashley: “I Can Tell You Donald Trump Is Not Racist”

Posted by Matt Boone February 9, 2017 11 Comments

TNA World Champion and Bellator MMA fighter recently spoke with the SI.com Extra Mustard Blog and addressed the Donald Trump racism issue.

“I worked with him at WrestleMania, so when the media starts throwing all these accusations at him, I can tell you he was not racist,” Lashley told the Sports Illustrated web outlet. “He made that WrestleMania so successful because he was great in his role as ‘The Donald.’ He had WWE on a big billboard in Times Square, he put us in different media outlets that we otherwise wouldn’t have been in, and he helped make that the largest WrestleMania in history.”

Lashley concluded by giving his official endorsement for Trump as the President of the United States.

“We need a leader who can make change,” said Lashley. “And he is the man.”

    I’ll take Lashleys first hand experience of Trump rather than someone who only has 2nd or 3rd hand experience.

    It’s a big deal to call someone racist and so far I haven’t seen something that makes Trump a racist.

      So by your logic, someone can only determine if someone is racist if they know them first hand? What an absurd statement.

        This is the basic principle of journalism and of history. Primary sources are more valuable than secondary sources.

          So by your logic, we can’t say he’s racist on account of his policies barring people from a certain ethnicity from entering the US? Seems pretty racist to me.

          And on a similar note, everyone knows the KKK is a racist organization, even if they didn’t have a personal relationship with any of the people who were a part of it.

            The way it would work is demonstrating why the policy of banning immigration from a select number of countries is racist. It’s a tough order.

    P.P. Johnny ask, is Bobby Lashley trying to impersonate Kellyanne Conway?
