Josh Hart disparaged President Donald Trump in a tweet sent on Tuesday.

Trump sent a tweet on Tuesday arguing that people are “tired of watching” the NBA because the league has become so political. He also warned MLB and the NFL against becoming political and losing fans. Lastly, he repeated the argument he seized for the last few years about athletes standing for the national anthem — a highly divisive issue.

Hart, whose New Orleans Pelicans played in the NBA resumption but did not make the playoffs, responded.

“What a dumba–,” Hart tweeted (edited for profanity by LBS).

Hart’s tweet quickly went viral and was retweeted more than 25,000 times at the time this article was published.

Trump’s tweet was highly divisive and attacked the NBA, which makes it easy to understand why one of its players would be defensive.

Hart’s tweet comes from a long line of NBA players clashing with the president over Twitter.
