Andrew Bogut is not American, so he has a different outlook on the voting process that Donald Trump elected as the 45th President of the United States.
The Mavericks center hasn’t shied away from talking politics and the Australian fired what I perceived as a shot at the establishment.
“I got in trouble two weeks ago because of who I follow,” Bogut told ESPN’s Ethan Sherwood Strauss, “I’ve got some far left follows … I’ve got some far right follows,” he said. “I try to read a little bit from all aspects and then try to figure out what the hell really happened. And I was getting killed for that because I had some far right, and I’m like, ‘I really don’t care.'”
“That comes down to my hatred for social justice warriors. Because they did the very thing that they oppose … My mentions were like, I’m a racist bigot. I’m like, hold on a second, I’m not even American. I wasn’t going to vote for (Donald) Trump … I wasn’t going to vote for Hillary (Clinton), and you guys are are calling me all kinds of names, saying ‘Go back to Australia!'”
Bogut also blamed the media for tricking voters into believing that a Trump win would be that shocking.
“I think there’s surprise because the mainstream media ingrained in everyone’s head that it was going to be an avalanche for the Democrats,” he said. “It’s not a secret. Every portion of the mainstream media is heavily left. There’s a huge bias … No one trusts mainstream media anymore. I don’t trust them.”
Boguts comments were raw and to the point, and they came from a guy who has no vested interest in following the masses.
