That disgusting video of the South African dude disrespecting Michael Phelps is all over the net. Here's a youtube vid of the scene. Looks almost like the le Clos character is trying to do a Muhammad Ali number, but without the skill to back it up.
It's a metaphor. It seems the whole world is disrespecting the U.S.A. these days.
It would have been refreshing to see Phelps jump up and smack le Clos in the kisser. But Phelps had a bigger goal in mind, which was to beat the hell out of him in a race. And he did!
U.S.A! U.S.A! U.S.A!
And to think that anyone wonders why the phrase "Make America Great Again" has so much traction.
