UFC Champ Conor McGregor tweeted out major love for President Trump on Martin Luther King Day in response to the president’s tweet praising the low African American unemployment rates. “African-American Unemployment is the LOWEST in the history of our Country by far. Also, best Poverty, Youth, and Employment numbers, ever. Great!” the president wrote.

In response, McGregor, responded, “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. [sic] Early stages of term also. Incredible. Congrats and Happy Martin Luther King Jr. day America.”

McGregor just came off his first win in fifteen months with the UFC in his fight against Donald Cerrone in Las Vegas. McGregor has always been a bombastic character in the UFC and does not seem worried about being public about his love of Trump. His much anticipated UFC return was an exciting night for UFC fans and video of the technical knock-out in the first round was widely shared. While critics may try to shame McGregor for liking our president, good luck putting a dent in his famous attitude. The more well-known people who come out in support of Donald Trump, like Vince Vaughn and now McGregor, the more wind it takes out of the sails of critics who try to shame us all into silence and secrecy if we support him. Bravo!
