Delusional Donald Sterling Blasts Magic Johnson: “What Has He Done? He’s Got AIDS!”
Does Donald Sterling realize the hole that he keeps digging for himself?
As if the racist comments that he made over the phone to V. Stiviano weren’t bad enough, the hopefully soon-to-be ousted owner of the Los Angeles Clippers interviewed with Anderson Cooper and did himself no favors by lambasting Magic Johnson.
Because he’s a racist, that’s why.
In the interview (which you can watch in its entirety below), Sterling proves that he’s truly a senile old man who has no grasp on who he is and what he has done. In an appearance that was supposed to rehabilitate his image, Sterling swiftly morphed into a defensive individual who opted to blast Johnson rather than focus on the harm he has caused.
“What has he done? Can you tell me? Big Magic Johnson, what has he done? He’s got AIDS,” the 80-year-old said. “Did he do any business? Did he help anybody in South LA?”
Obviously, Sterling missed the years Johnson has championed HIV and AIDS-related causes, his chain of movie theaters and various other business ventures. Not to mention the millions of dollars that he has donated to multiple charities.
But no, Sterling doesn’t believe that’s enough. So he continued putting his foot on the accelerator.
“Here’s a man I don’t know if I should say this, he acts so holy,” Sterlign continued. “He made love with every girl in every city in America, and he had AIDS, and when he had those AIDS, I went to my synagogue and I prayed for him. I hoped he could live and be well. I didn’t criticize him. I could have. Is he an example for children? You know, because he has money, he’s able to treat himself. But Magic Johnson is irrelevant in this thing. He didn’t do anything harmful to anybody and I respect him and I admire everything that he does. I’d like to help even more if he would offer me an opportunity to help. I like to help minorities.”
Help minorities? Wow. This dude is nuts.
“Has he done everything he can do to help minorities? I don’t think so,” Sterling said. “But I’ll say it, he’s great. But I don’t think he’s a good example for the children of Los Angeles.”
Oh yeah, as for those racist remarks?
“I think you have more of a plantation mentality than I do,” Sterling said to Anderson Cooper. “I think you’re more of a racist than I am.”
