Count former president Donald Trump among those who are less than thrilled with the Cleveland Indians’ announced name change. Aiming to not offend anyone, Cleveland landed upon “Guardians” as the nickname they’ll begin using next season. Trump called the decision “a disgrace.”
“Can anybody believe that the Cleveland Indians, a storied and cherished baseball franchise since taking the name in 1915, are changing their name to the Guardians? Such a disgrace, and I guarantee that the people who are most angry about it are the many Indians of our Country,” Trump said in a statement released Friday.

Trump continued, stating it would be disrespectful “to rip that name and logo off of those jerseys.” Then added: “The people of Cleveland cannot be thrilled and I, as a FORMER baseball fan, cannot believe things such as this are happening,” he said. “A small group of people, with absolutely crazy ideas and policies, is forcing these changes to destroy our culture and heritage. At some point, the people will not take it anymore!”
Just over 24 hours since Cleveland announced their intentions, the Guardians nickname has been met with as much approval as a pregnant nun.

Get ready Atlanta Braves, Florida State Seminoles, Kansas City Chiefs, and Notre Dame Fighting Irish (wait, you didn’t know Irish people were allowed to be offended?) you’re next.
Hopefully before that happens we can Make Nicknames Great Again.

Seriously, like somebody said, use a rock and go with Cleveland Rocks.
After a bridge, ffs. Really?
Absolutely nothing wrong with the nickname, ‘Indians.’
Another battle ‘won,’ by the idiots.
Do people still listen to Donald Trump after his disastrous 4 years of losing the House and Senate
Just admit it.. The “guardians” is gay AF. Match that w/ the wack ass single-A wanna be Angles logo. Whoever green lit the name change has low T
And 3 Supreme Court Justices. And record number of district and appellate judges. And deadlocked Senate. And actually picked up seats in the House. But yeah, he was a real failure. It took the Chi-Coms for you to get your victory. If it takes enemies of America for you to win, maybe you’re not winning. 🤔
And lost the election by 7 million votes. You forgot to mention that part. You also left off twice impeached and soon to be indicated. Btw….What happened to the 72 million collected to pay for election audits? Oh that’s right, he has yet to spend one dime of the money he grited from poor working very Fine People
Yeah Biden outscored Obama 08. Whatever you need to tell yourself.
Trump is a great American. If you like peace and prosperity with controlled a southern border Trump is your man. If you like wimpy, malcontent lying losers the Communist Democrats would be the bitches of choice. America Matters. BTW Trump Won!
That would be a deflection. We went from a policy-solid president with a great economy to Biden, who I’m certain is not aware his handlers giving him lies e.g. Republicans defund the police, crime is going down in the cities etc. And you’re lucky of the pre-written stuff is read coherently, usually not.
Trump won. Democrats have been stealing elections and altering ballots ever since JFK…
Im ok with the logo going. It was low-key kinda racist lol.. but leave it at that.
Also, FSU ain’t changing shit. The tribe and the state are good on it.
Trump may not be everyone’s guy but he sure as hell is every traditional God loving and free speaking American’s guy. He loves the traditional values of hard work, family, peace and prosperity for all. You never hear any of that from the Xiden Administration.
Imagine what a Mental Midget a person must be to get offended on behalf of Indians* so much that they have to start a petition to change the name of a baseball team. Wow… just… wow.
*When I say “Indians”, I mean “Crazy Horse”, not “sacred cow”.
