Another One Bites The Dust! Kareem Abdul-Jabbar & LAUSD Pull Their Charity Golf Tournament From Donald Trump's Golf Course!

Filed under: ZportzDonald TrumpGolfCharityControversy

Donald Trump can kiss another golf charity goodbye!

At this rate, it doesn't seem like Donald Trump's golf courses are going to see much action.

That's because the Los Angeles Unified School District is the newest organization to pull a charity golf tournament from a Trump-affiliated course.

ESPN and the PGA have also completely dropped his golf club, and Ricky Martin also opted out of hosting his tournie at the Trump International Golf Club.

Now the LAUSD has refused to be affiliated with the businessman after his controversial comments, and will no longer host its Beyond the Bell classic at the Donald's Rancho Palos Verdes golf club.

The tournament was set to support Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's Skyhook Foundation through Camp Skyhook, which provides hands-on experiences for fourth- and fifth-graders, most of whom come from low-income households.

Even though Donald has lost quite a few charity events recently, he still hasn't shown any sign of remorse for the outrageous things he's said.

Donald Trump sure knows how to find the gold silver lining!

On Tuesday, both NASCAR and ESPN pulled out of events from the presidential candidate's golf courses due to his racist comments.

But The Donald isn't too worried about the bridges he's burning, because he claims that he's only getting richer because of them!

The 69-year-old issued a statement calling out his critics who pointed out the "setback" due to his actions. He said:

"Really? What were the losses? One NASCAR banquet in a magnificent ballroom at Trump National Doral in Miami for which I will keep their very substantial deposit and rent the ballroom to someone else that night — in other words, two fees instead of one (NASCAR has already apologized to me)!"

Way to stay positive and think about the bottom line, Donald… He continued:

Donald Trump Loses Another Business Partner… ESPN Cancels Its Celebrity Golf Classic At His Course!

Filed under: ZportzDonald TrumpGolfCharity

no title

It looks like Ricky Martin isn't the only one punishing Mr. Trump through golf!

It's no secret that Donald Trump has made a ton of enemies lately with his anti-Mexican Presidential Bid speech and racist follow-up comments.

Well, not only has the 69-year-old lost his relationship with NBC, another network has decided to cut ties with the former Celebrity Apprentice host as well.

ESPN announced on Monday that it will no longer be holding its Celebrity Golf Classic at Trump's National Golf Club.

The event was supposed to take place on July 14, but now that the venue needs to be changed, its unclear where and when the charity game will actually happen.

The sports authority decided to abandon Mr. Trump because proceeds from its classic actually go towards the Stuart Scott Memorial Cancer Research Fund which donates money to medical research funds specifically for minorities… So we see where a relationship with Donald could prove to be inappropriate.

Is there anyone out there who isn't jumping from S.S. Trump??

Bob Costas DOES NOT Think Caitlyn Jenner Should Receive This Year's Arthur Ashe Courage Award At The ESPYS!

Filed under: ZportzAwardzBruce JennerCaitlyn Jenner

Bob Costas thinks Caitlyn Jenner should not be receiving the prestigious courage award.

It's not that Bob Costas doesn't support Caitlyn Jenner — he does — he just doesn't support ESPN's decision to award her the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at this year's ESPYS.

[ Video: Watch Michael Sam Accept The Arthur Ashe Award! ]

He called in to The Dan Patrick Show to explain why he's criticizing the sports network's choice, saying:

"It's a tabloid play. In the broad world of sports, I'm pretty sure they could've found — and this is not anything against Caitlyn Jenner — I'm pretty sure they could've found someone who is much closer to [being] actively involved in sports who would've been deserving of what that award represents."

The broadcaster accused ESPN of making a "crass exploitation play," but didn't intend any disrespect to Caitlyn.

In fact, he commended her bravery. He just feels the award should go to someone who's more recently active in the sports world, explaining:

"That's not to say that it doesn't take some measure of personal courage to do what Caitlyn Jenner has done, but I think every year we look across the landscape of sports and we find prominent people and kids in high school and amateur athletes who I think more closely fit the description of what they're looking for — or should be looking for there."

Bob may not think Caitlyn was the right pick for the trophy, but he's still very happy for her, that she's finally able to live her life the way she wants:

"Bruce Jenner, who I did not know well, I always had a cordial and pleasant relationship with. I wish Caitlyn Jenner well, and anyone — even if most of us do not fully understand it — anyone seeking to find the identity they're comfortable with and to live the happiest possible life without intentionally hurting anyone else…I think we're moving toward a more tolerant society, and that's all for the good, and I wish Caitlyn all the happiness in the world and all the peace of mind in the world."

What do U think? Was Caitlyn the best choice for the award?

Or is ESPN just pandering for ratings?

SOUND OFF in the comments!
