Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Jokes Donald Trump Thinks He's Michael Jordan in DNC Speech (Video)

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar speaks at the podium for his speech at the 2016 Democratic National Convention on Thursday (July 28) at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Penn.

The 69-year-old basketball legend jokingly referred to himself as Michael Jordan when he walked out on stage. “I said that because I know that Donald Trump couldn’t tell the difference,” he joked.

Kareem appeared at the convention to slam Trump‘s views on Muslims.

Donald Trump‘s idea to register Muslims and prevent them from entering our country is the very tyranny [Thomas] Jefferson abhorred,” he said. “At its core, discrimination is the result of fear. Those who think Americans scare easily enough to abandon our country’s ideals in exchange for a false sense of security underestimate our resolve.”
