It looks like no one was neutral on this one…
UFC champion Conor McGregor responded to President Trump’s tweet on Martin Luther King Jr. Day touting his success in reducing African-American unemployment to historic lows during the three years that he has been in office. McGregor’s response was that President Trump was “phenomenal” and possibly the greatest President of all time. He also said that President Trump “sits atop the shoulders of many amazing giants.”
Phenomenal President. Quite possibly the USA ?. Most certainly one of them anyway, as he sits atop the shoulders of many amazing giants that came before him. No easy feet.
Early stages of term also.
Congrats and Happy Martin Luther King Jr. day America ??❤️??

The gushing praise made a few people a wee bit upset…
Just got off the McGregor bus, I was a huge fan until this tweet, I’m sure this will cost you more fans than any fight you lose.
Team Masdival, Khabib, Usman or anyone who fights you now!!!

Several people couldn’t handle the typo in McGregor’s tweet.
This tweet shows serious brain trauma, for so many reasons!
Like, supporting Trump & not making any sense!
How many USAs are there?
He’s certain there’s at least one.
Are these “giants” other civilizations?
Can’t write, can’t think, MUST be a Trumpster!

Don’t disappoint me Conor. I’m a big fan. You know he doesn’t like people of color, right?

If fairness the two of you do have a lot in common:-
1. both driven by greedy/money
2. Both drug addicts
3. Both racists
4. Both partial to a bit of rape
5. Both have dodgy hair

Those anti-Trumpsters were definitely triggered.
But McGregor got a whole lot of positive responses, too:
And just like that I like Conor even more! #MAGA

On Tuesday morning, President Trump responded to McGregor’s tweet congratulating him on his recent win against Donald Cerrone on Saturday night. It was the first victory for McGregor since 2016.
Congratulations on your big @UFC WIN! https://t.co/135dOECsEf

Which just set people off again.
President Sports And Crimes has already mentally checked out of Davos, too many big words
— Jeff Tiedrich (@itsJeffTiedrich) January 21, 2020
Wow. This truly sums you up. You’re at #Davos. With the world’s biz/political leaders. And you tweet about ultimate fighting. You are SO incompetent and unfit for this job it’s f’ing STAGGERING… #Trump
— Andy Ostroy (@AndyOstroy) January 21, 2020
Mmm-hmm… because hangin’ with the elites at Davos to be lectured by Greta Thunberg about ceasing all fossil fuel use immediately is so all-consuming that it prevents someone from taking 10 seconds to respond to a tweet. [Insert eye roll here.]
It doesn’t matter how many times Donald Trump retweets someone who’s praised him, he will still be impeached forever
— Edward Hardy (@EdwardTHardy) January 21, 2020
And the President’s fans:
Real recognize real.
