Politics are ruling the headlines these days, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar decided to add his own flair to the Democratic National Convention.

Who didn’t love Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in airplane?

The former basketball star spoke tonight at the Democratic National Convention and didn’t waste any time taking shots at Republican candidate, Donald Trump.

“I’m Michael Jordan and I’m here with Hillary [Clinton]. I said that because I know that Donald Trump couldn’t know the difference.”

Kareem seemed pretty impressed by his wise-crack.

Trump’s unapologetic style has many Americans nervous about his prospective presidency.

No matter where you stand politically, you can’t deny that the presidential debates will be an entertaining spectacle. With Hillary Clinton aiming to be the first female of the United States and Donald Trump aiming to build walls, the two should have plenty to argue over.
