Donald Sterling is now the living, breathing embodiment of what many of us have known for a long time.
You don’t have to be smart to be rich.
The disgraced Los Angeles Clippers owner spoke the other day to CNN’s Anderson Cooper and revealed to the world that he is as clueless as they come.
He ridiculed a professional basketball legend, Earvin “Magic” Johnson, taking note of the HIV condition to which Johnson admitted more than two decades ago. He derided Johnson’s efforts to educate the world about the illness.
Why in the world does this man continue to drag Magic Johnson’s good name through the mud?
He said he was “baited” into saying those despicable things about African-Americans to his so-called girlfriend, V. Stiviano. It’s as if she purportedly “tricked” him into revealing the poison that afflicts his heart.
None of this makes any sense.
Sterling has been banned for life from the NBA. His fellow team owners are working — quickly, it is being reported — to remove him as owner of the Clippers. Sterling’s estranged wife, Shelly, wants to keep possession of the franchise. Others have expressed interest in buying the Clippers from Sterling.
Meanwhile, Sterling likely is going to keep making idiotic statements.
The more I hear from this clown, the less interested I become in anything he has to say.
Will you please just shut the (bleep) up, Donald Sterling?
