Fresh off the Conor McGregor fight, Floyd “Money” Mayweather recently sat down with Hollywood Unlocked to chat about the fight and his business investments. However, the most intriguing part of the interview had to do with President Trump.
In the second part of a lengthy interview with the boxing champion, topics such as Trump’s controversial p*ssy-grabbing comments, protests and immigration were among the quotable moments.
When it came to Trump, Mayweather didn't seem to necessarily want to use the "friends" label, but did acknowledge that he has "talked with [Trump] on a couple occasions," and added that he "can call [Trump] directly on his phone."
The question of whether or not President Trump is racist has been a hot topic this week. Mayweather was asked if he believes Trump is racist.
"I think, within this world, racism still exists. You never heard anything about Donald Trump being racist until he ran for president and won."
As for that infamous "grab 'em by the p*ssy" comment during Trump's campaign?
"People don’t like the truth," Mayweather said, "He speak like a real man spoke. Real men speak like, 'Man, she had a fat ass. You see her ass? I had to squeeze her ass. I had to grab that fat ass.' Right? So he talking locker room talk. Locker room talk. 'I’m the man, you know what I’m saying? You know who I am. Yeah, I grabbed her by the p*ssy. And?'"
Despite having lots of thoughts about Trump, Mayweather believes that "it doesn't matter" who the president is.
"At the end of the day, I don’t know why everybody keep bitching and keep picketing and holding [signs]. They walking and walking, protesting, 'We don’t want this to happen.' My man, all that time you spending protesting, you could be at home writing down ideas coming up with a business," he said.
Mayweather even spoke his piece on the most recent hot button issue, Trump's DACA decision.
"A lot of times you meet people, people from other countries. You meet people from other countries that be like, 'Oh, I love my country. I love this. I love that.' I say, 'If you love your country so much, why you here? You taking up space for other people. We got some other Americans that would love your job,'" said Mayweather.
Goodness! So many controversial hot takes ... it's a hot take knockout.
