Miami Dolphins wide receiver Kenny Stills is the latest person to suffer from TDS or Trump Derangement Syndrome. He took to Twitter to criticize his boss, Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross.
Ross owns a national nonprofit that helps the sports community fights against racial discrimination and also champions social justice.
Stills tweeted about the hypocrisy of Ross supporting President Trump and also fighting for the issues in his nonprofit.

Ross responded to Stills on Twitter. He responded very professionally. He defended his stances and admitted he has agreed and disagreed with President Trump over the last 40 years.

“I always have been an active participant in the democratic process. While some prefer to sit outside of the process and criticize, I prefer to engage directly and support the things I deeply care about.
I have known Donald Trump for 40 years, and while we agree on some issues, we strongly disagree on many others and I have never been bashful about expressing my opinions.
I started my business with nothing and a reason for my engagement with our leaders is my deep concern for creating jobs and growing our country’s economy.
I have been, and will continue to be, an outspoken champion of racial equality, inclusion, diversity, public education and environmental sustainability, and I have and will continue to support leaders on both sides of the aisle to address these challenges.”
That's a fair response. Ross heard out the view of his employee and argued that despite their differing viewpoints they stand together with this cause.
Well, that wasn't good enough for Stills. Perhaps he is high off of the attention he's getting from the liberal media, so when he was asked about it after practice he took the baton and ran with it.
Meanwhile Stephen Ross still held the fundraiser and it actually exceeded the amount of funds they expected when it raised $12 million.
Thanks to the unhinged mob on the left, @realDonaldTrump raised $12M today, $2M more than originally expected.
The support for our President is unprecedented and growing!

President Trump suggested that his friend Mr. Ross could actually benefit from the backlash. And it turns out he was right.
"I think it just makes Steve much hotter,” President Trump said. "He’ll figure that out in about a week, but he’s very happy."
"By the way, I think he’s probably more inclined to be a liberal, if you want to know the truth," Trump continued. "But he likes me. He respects me."
When it comes to the left they can't just agree to disagree. They cannot just let it go. They will threaten to stop watching the Dolphins. Life will go on, whether they realize it or not.
Perhaps Stills should focus on improving on last year's very mediocre season of only 37 receptions for 553 yards. His contract is four years, $32 million and he is being grossly overpaid by this owner he is ripping.
Unfortunately the Kenny Stills Trump Derangement Syndrome case is not going away anytime soon. As long as the media keeps feeding him and making him feel like a victim, he will move forward with this.
In the meantime Tom Brady and the Patriots will continue dominating the AFC East and the Stills and the Dolphins will watch them in the playoffs.
