1. Spotlight-seeking, maybe?

Trump is the apotheosis of everything his father fought against in the Sixties.

2. It would be hard to be Ali's son and know that you are not strong like him but a weakling

So of course all you can do then is pretend your father was like you.

He must not have heard that his father risked his career, his freedom, and his life in order to protest a war that he knew disproportionately killed black men. That is, Ali believed... Black Lives Mattered.

And Ali, near the end of his life, criticized Trump's Muslim ban.

Don't think he was a MAGAt.

3. Ali had 9 kids. You'd expect one to have missed what their dad stood for.

5. According to several press reports

they were estranged for the last 10 years of Ali's life.

I wonder why ...

4. It's going to be a lot of fun

watching Trumpsters start embracing the Black Muslim estranged son of Muhammad Ali, who will no doubt be the featured speaker at the next Trump Two Hours of Hate Rally.

Family Ties: The Story Behind Muhammad Ali's Estranged Son

When Muhammad Ali passed away on Friday night, it seems like the whole world mourned. One person who had mixed feelings about the icon's passing, however, is his own son, 43-year-old Muhammad Ali Jr.

The two had been estranged for years, with Ali Jr. living on the poverty line in one of the most notorious neighborhoods of Chicago's South Side. He claims he felt very little of his father's fortune and fame.

In an interview that took place two years ago, Ali Jr. admitted that he did not care what happened to his father, and was more concerned with taking care of himself after being cast aside by his family. Despite this, he was reportedly by his father's side at the time of his passing. As family spokesman Bog Gunnel emphasized to WHAS 11, "They [the family] were all there to say their final goodbyes... Every member of the family was there."

7. That's right up there with the "MLK was a Republican" narrative...

...which wasn't even true, needless to say.

8. IIRC, most blacks voted GOP until 1960--MLK in jail, JFK sent wife letter, Nixon didn't

Taylor Branch discusses the letter/non-letter effect in his MLK trilogy

In the 2000 GOP primary (in MI, I think) many blacks crossed over to vote for McCain in the GOP primary

Hannity was enraged. He was screaming over and over--when have blacks EVER voted for a republican?

The lack of knowledge about American history revealed is mind-numbing!

11. Southern Democrats - Dixiecrats - had little in common with today's Dems,

except they weíre thankful for Social Security keeping all the poor farmers from starving.

White wingers love to say that Democrats are the racists because of that, forgetting Dixiecrats became GOPers after the Civil Rights Act.
