President Trump: Fundraiser controversy makes Stephen Ross “hotter”

AP

Dolphins owner Stephen Ross found himself in hot water this week regarding his decision to hold a six-figure-per-person fundraiser for President Donald Trump. Speaking to reporters from the White House lawn on a hot August morning, a profusely sweating President Trump said that the controversy is actually a good thing for Ross.

“I think it just makes Steve much hotter,” President Trump said. “I didn’t speak to him yet, I’ll see him in a little while. The controversy makes Steve Ross hotter. He’ll figure that out in about a week.”

President Trump also seemed to confirm that he doesn’t see eye to eye politically with Ross.

“Stephen Ross is a great friend of mine, he’s a very successful guy,” President Trump said. “We were competitors but friends in real estate in New York in the old days. He’s a great guy. He is — by the way, I think he’s probably more inclined to be a liberal, if you want to know the truth. But he likes me, he respects me. We’re doing a fundraiser there, we’re doing another fundraiser with another friend of mine. And I understand the fundraiser was totally sold out, and it’s very successful.”

Whether Ross believes his efforts are making him “hotter” or more successful remains to be seen. If anything, the situation has crystallized the disconnect between those, like Ross, who claim to support racial equality and social justice and the “rhetoric around race” from the Oval Office.

  1. As a Dolphins fan, I can’t stand Ross. But clowns like Kenny Stills should be quiet and focus on what they are getting paid to do.Plenty there to keep Stills busy. And not sure why Stills has a problem with this, he’s been stealing money from Miami for a few years now.

    The only color Stephen Ross cares about is green, and billionaires haven never had a better friend in office than Trump.

    I don’t know about that the richest man in the world is Jeff Bezos owner of Amazon.com and he was one of Obama’s biggest supporters and friends. Oh yeah and Amazon has never paid a dime in income tax.

    why can’t he speak his mind? no one tells you to keep quiet and focus on being unemployed.

  4. Kenny Stills is expendable with Preston Williams emerging. Hes not part of the long term solution. Trade him for a draft pick. MAGA 2020

  5. Found himself in hot water? Hows that? Because one of his (mediocre to slightly better than mediocre) employees made a critical statement based solely in his personal emotion and opinion? Hot water seems quite the exaggeration. Lol

  6. Kenny Stills needs to remember he is the employee and Ross is the employer, bad mouthing your boss in public never ends well.

  7. I’m not pointing fingers or placing blame on one side or the other, but how in the hell did we get to a point where supporting the POTUS is considered taboo and controversial?

  8. Stephen Ross looks like a ghoul, Kenny Stills sounds like an entitled moron who would be cut already for publicly badmouthing his employer if not for double standards.

  9. Nobody liked Ross until Kenny Stills said Ross has no right to support the POTUS. Ross has been Stills biggest supporter yet for guys like stills whatever you do is never enough.

    Both Ross and Trump have paid mire taxes in a year than you will your while life. Making the rich pay a higher percentage of taxes is dumb. Everyone should pay the same percentage which is what these billionaires want.

  12. Ross is not wrong. Free thought and expression. Stills is not wrong. Free thought and expression. Faux controversy. If Stills is deeply morally offended by the owner of his employer’s free thought and expression, he is free to leave said employer and employment. Why over complicate it?

  13. Social justice. What a joke. Anytime you put a word in front of justice, you weaken the meaning of justice. Justice is all encompassing.

  14. I thought this was a free country and you could support who ever you wanted in politics. I guess the media disagrees and wants to dictate what we can say, do, think or support. Germany went through that in the 30’s…

    This is correct. That same freedom extends to people saying stuff and doing stuff in reaction though. Mind blowing to some people.

    Wrong. Kenny is on a contract. Can he leave? yes, but he is not free to then to go and find work in his chosen profession at a different company. not exactly “free”

    This has nothing to do with politics. If you can’t see why people dislike Trump other than his politics, you are living under a rock. Dolphins fans don’t want the owner of their favorite team throwing a fundraiser for a bigot and misogynist.

  18. He is upset about who his employer supports, and he’s upset that his employer has donated millions of dollars to the “cause” that he disrespects our flag too?
    Would he rather Ross support trump and not give money to charities then?

    No one tells me because they don’t have to. And anyhow if I ever did speak of my employer like that to the press I would not be told to “keep quiet”. I would be told to go.

  20. If a regular working stiff, Jane Doe or John Doe criticized their employer because of their political views, they would be out of work. Free speech in the work place that hurts the employer is not acceptable. If you worked for Phillip Morris and said in a public forum, “cigarettes cause cancer and Phillip Morris are murderers”, how long would it take to get fired ?

  21. I just got a good chuckle thinking about Kaepernick in his Dolphins hat. I love how unhinged the mob has become. What great entertainment to watch the pure desperation.

  22. Told my friend about 6-8 months ago when Trump’s polling numbers with blacks were skyrocketing, to just watch, the leftists (Dems, media) would start a race thing. No way they can let blacks vote for Trump. Well, it didn’t take long. Amazing people believe the media at all.

    …………..
    You’ve missed my point. Im not saying that Dolphin fans are wrong. I’m simply saying that we’re in a time and place in this country where supporting the President is controversial. It’s a sad reality, regardless of whether or not it’s warranted.

  24. Creepy old perverted Trump thought he was talking about Stephanie Ross, and so it makes sense that he used the word “hotter”. He must have read the teleprompter incorrect yet again……

    And does Trump really have any “friends”? When you are that rich and creepy, it is much like being Jeff Epstein or Harvey Weinstein – people only hang out with you because you are rich. I highly doubt Ross actually likes Trump. Hell, even Melania doesn’t like Trump.

    You forgot the “the” before blacks in your tirade. It’s ok. You can call us black men/women/people.

  26. Always kind of thought the Dolphin were a weird franchise, still living in the past of the 17-0 season. I am really interested in them now, new coach, see Josh Rosen at QB, and the owner is now making it interesting….GO Phins…

  27. Targeting a NFL owner or anyone due to their politics, friendships or beliefs is not American and conflicts with our Constitution. This will back fire on the Democrats as they continue on a false narrative going from the Russia hoax to other false narratives of hate to influence the 2020 elections.
