basketball textureThe host of a nationally-syndicated radio show says this year's NCAA men's basketball champions' "Trump-derangement syndrome" is the reason they have snubbed a White House invitation to have President Trump congratulate them on their success.

According to Campus Reform, the University of Virginia men's basketball Coach Tony Bennett claims some Cavaliers are seeking pro opportunities, while others are moving on, so it would be difficult to get everyone together. But Project 21's Stacy Washington points out that this would never have happened under Barack Obama.

"In the past, if there was a White House visit and it was President Obama, you'd just hang around, or you'd fly back, or you'd fly directly to D.C., and you'd get there by hook or by crook; it's an opportunity to have a photo op at the White House," she asserts. "Now it's 'we want to Trump hate.'"

The "Stacy on the Right" host says the boycott comes amidst a petition signed by 15,000 people urging the team to forgo the visit because of President Trump's alleged "hate" and "racism."

"It's Trump-derangement syndrome," Washington states. "People hate Donald Trump so much they think meeting with him and shaking his hand is tantamount to promoting hate when the true hate is in their heart."

UVA College Republicans President Robert Andrews calls the petition "petty politicization," according to Campus Reform.
