Both Taylor and Smith retweeted a post by the Nation’s Dave Zirin, who shared a quote by Smith from February, in which the former Maryland player discussed his antipathy toward a White House visit while Trump was in office.
For me, It’s not just about politics, Smith said then. If I told you that I was invited to a party by an individual I believe is sexist or has no respect for women, or I told you that this individual has said offensive things toward many minority groups, … this individual also called my peers and my friends SOBs, you would understand why I wouldn’t want to go to that party.
