After an opening night dominated by D-list, anti-Hillary celebrities, Tuesday night at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland saw an upgrade to the B-minus list.
Early in Tuesday’s “Make America Work Again” night, Dana White, president of the mixed-martial arts league Ultimate Fighting Championship, took the stage at the Quicken Loans Arena to gush about his friend and new political hero, the freshly minuted presidential nominee, Donald J. Trump.
“WHAT’S UP, GOP! Good evening, everyone!” White began, attempting to rev up the crowd. “I assume most of you are wondering what am I doing here.”
The UFC president—who said he was “blown away and honored to be invited here tonight”—went on to explain that his friendship with the real-estate mogul became ironclad when Trump first supported White’s then-fledgling business in the early aughts.
“In 2001… nobody took [the UFC] seriously—except for Donald Trump,” he said. “He showed up for the fight... and sat in the front row. He’s that guy. He shows up… I will always be so grateful to him for standing with us... So tonight, I stand with Donald Trump.”
“We need someone who believes in this country... and someone who will fight for this country,” White said. “I’ve been in the fight business my whole life... Ladies and gentlemen, Donald Trump is a fighter, and I know he will fight for this country!”
Those were kind words, from one businessman to another. White is indeed a successful businessman. He is also a Twitter user who enjoys tweeting about his and other people’s balls, as The Daily Beast has previously documented.
“I’m gonna rub my nuts on ur moms face!!!!” he tweeted at @Grateyfratez in July 2010.
It gets better.
“bro ur name is OMG lady gaga!?” he tweeted at the account @OMG_LadyGaga in February 2011. “LMFAO you should be beat with a fuckin stick and kicked in the nuts repeatedly.”
“ur a jackass get fedors nuts outta ur mouth,” White tweeted at @PJ2661gambler on Valentine’s Day 2011.
He had yet more to say about “fedors nuts,” which refers to the testicles belonging to UFC fighter Fedor Emelianenko.
In July 2010, he posted that @fjbar75 “will have to remove fedors nuts from his tonsils!!! Boooooo hooooooo fedorrrrrrrrr!” (For that tweet, @danawhite earned himself one like.)
“stop swingin on fedors nuts and get your own life you loser!” he wrote to @RUSSIAandSERBIA in June 2010.
And just six short years later, White was on-stage at the GOP convention, lumping praise upon his dear friend and Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump—another businessman who has a habit of tweeting about his balls.
