Trump's Bizarre Sharapova Rant

Donald Trump's strange week keeps getting stranger. The US President has intervened in the emerging saga that is Maria Sharapova versus the Rest of the Tennis World.

Early in the morning today Trump tweeted: "More anti-Russia bias by French losers banning the beautiful Maria Sharapova! Sad."

The President's tweet relates to the French Open organisers refusing to give Sharapova a wildcard entry for the tournament starting May 22.

The president of the French Tennis Federation, Bernard Giudicelli, said "There can be a wildcard for the return from injuries; there cannot be a wildcard for the return from doping."

Trump's intervention follows the shocking revelations revealed this week that he had asked former FBI director James Comey to shut down the Russia inquiry, which is tantamount to obstruction of justice, or what Congressional Republicans call "concerning."
