Kareem Abdul Jabbar: Donald Trump’s Campaign Will Ultimately Fail (Watch)

*Although Donald Trump is leading polls in the GOP’s 2016 presidential race, his latest target Kareem Abdul-Jabbar says the mogul’s campaign is doomed.

“Well, you know, political campaigns are about style and substance,” Abdul-Jabbar told host Rachel Maddow on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” Thursday night. “And Mr. Trump’s style is very attractive.

“The reason that he’s able to get all of this attention and the following that he does is because he says things in a way that inspires people or makes them feel good about the things he’s saying,” he continued.

“But pretty soon, there’s going to have to be some substance,” said Abdul-Jabbar. “When we hear exactly what the substance is of what his programs are for his vision of America, I don’t think his candidacy will last very long beyond that.”

The NBA legend also doubled down on Trump’s handling of the press.

“There are so many other journalists that think he has to be held accountable in some way and then try to ask questions and all they get is threats and put-downs,” he said.

“It doesn’t make any sense,” Abdul-Jabbar added. “When you try to suppress that, I think you’re trying to stifle criticism and avoid being accountable.

Watch below:

Abdul-Jabbar has been feuding with Trump following a Washington Post column he penned critical of the New York business mogul.

Trump responded by scribbling a handwritten note on the offending article and sending it back to Abdul-Jabbar.

“Kareem – Now I know why the press always treated you so badly – they couldn’t stand you,” he wrote. “The fact is that you don’t have a clue about life and what has to be done to make America great again.”

  1. Well, WTF can you expect from a Turn-Coat American to a F’en Muslim, Kareem-Abdul-Jabbar!
    He’s no better than Obama and the rest of the Muslim POS! His “Words” mean NOTHING because he is “Who and What He Is,” but of course He thinks differently like a “N” does!!!!!!

  2. Mr Bill Senior what is like a N does mean? You admit that there is a difference in the way black and whites think and it’s good and true. The only problem is you think only white views matter and a N should be ashamed to not think like you. Well you are wrong and Trump will fail. If a black guy who mastered white vocabulary and demeanor is not good enough to be president, then you know an ignorant ignorantess who is primed to offend every foreign country he has to deal with is not competent enough to do so. If you are hoping he wins, like honks do it is your thiught that don’t matter.
