PHILADELPHIA — Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, a Hall of Fame basketball player and Muslim American, lobbed a massive burn at Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump — suggesting Trump is so racist he can't tell the difference between black Americans.

"I'm Michael Jordan, and I'm here with Hillary," he said in his introduction. "I said that because I know that Donald Trump could not tell the difference."


Abdul-Jabbar was onstage to introduce Khizr Khan, the father of a Muslim American soldier killed in the line of duty.

Khan, in his own devastating way laced into Trump, who he said denigrates Muslims and has no understanding of the Constitution.

"I ask every patriotic American, all Muslim immigrants and all immigrants to not take this election lightly," Khan said. "This is a historic election and I request to honor the sacrifice of my son and on Election Day take the time to get out and vote and vote for the leader vote for the strongest most qualified candidate Hillary Clinton."
