The “boycott Trump properties” movement continues, and the Washington Post is letting The Resistance know which professional sports team(s) might not be “resisting” hard enough:

Looks like at least one team might be about to get some strongly worded letters from members of The Resistance.

As you could have guessed from that list, the Washington Post’s hotel story sparked criticism of one team:
Of course the Pelicans stay at a fucking Trump hotel. Louisiana is a twisted ass state politically.

So if The Pelicans stick w/Trump Hotels, Trump will probably praise them for it, and they’ll become the Hannity of the NBA.

The New Orleans Pelicans are the only team in the league that could possibly stay at a Trump property this season on road trips.

However, this could have something to do with it:
To be clear: the Pelicans declined to say if they will continue staying at a Trump property this season. Different than saying they are. https://t.co/tTsptaVeGo

Regarding the Trump Hotel story, I've been told that the Pelicans/Saints don’t publicly release hotel information for security purposes

So there are other factors to consider.
