Donald Trump rescinds Warriors’ White House invitation, Ayesha Curry responds

Donald Trump rescinds Warriors’ White House invitation, Ayesha Curry responds

Ayesha Curry has a few choice words for Donald Trump.

On Saturday, the 28-year-old chef and author clapped back at the president with an eye-roll emoji on Twitter after he tweeted that her main squeeze as well as the 2017 NBA finals champs are not welcome to visit the White House.

The news comes after Curry had addressed the possibility of visiting the White House after the Warriors’ win, saying that if the team was invited and were to vote, he’d kindly decline.

“You can talk about all the different personalities that have said things and done things — from Colin Kaepernick to what happened with Michael Bennett to all sorts of examples of what has gone on in our country that has led to change,” Curry told reporters during a Friday press conference. “We’re all trying to do what we can using our platforms, using our opportunities to shed light on that. That’s kind of where I stand on that. I don’t think us going to the White House will miraculously make everything better, but this is my opportunity to voice that.”

Though it’s unclear whether the White House actually extended an invite to the Warriors, Trump still tweeted that the option of a future invite was off the table.

“Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team,” said the 71-year-old former “Celebrity Apprentice,” adding, “Stephen Curry is hesitating, therefore invitation is withdrawn!”

Unsurprisingly, Curry’s lovely wife wasn’t the only celebrity rolling their eyes. Stars and athletes including John Legend, Lebron James, ESPN host Jemele Hill, and more also clapped back at Trump — many mocking him for taking away an invitation after Curry had already stated it was a no-go:

“Welcome to the club bro,” tweeted Hill, who earlier this month was criticized for calling Trump a “white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists.”

Luckily for Curry, he can have a seat at the table just about anywhere else.
