Derek Jeter Broke His Ankle Because Of Donald Trump Karma

Up until three days ago, Derek Jeter was the proud owner of an apartment in Trump World Tower – a Trump monstrosity located between 47th and 48th street on 1st avenue in Manhattan. According to The Donald, Jeter sold his east side apartment three days ago, which, for those of you scoring at home, is one day before Jeter broke his ankle in Game 1 of the ALCS. Trump, shameless self-promoter that he is, proclaimed this calamity as part of the inner-workings of his karmic power.

Jeter, hero-saint and righteous bearer of all the world’s good, was promptly defended by the Twitterverse with unflinching aggression.


Then Trump went ahead and took a shot at A-Rod, once again crediting himself:

Except Yankee fans weren’t, well, let’s just say, as quick, to defend their third baseman.

So what can we learn from all this? Donald Trump’s Twitter proves that everyone loves Derek Jeter and everyone hates Alex Rodriguez. So, nothing.

    If you want REALLY bad karma: Albert Pujols was on track to winning the Triple Crown in 2010 until he appeared at Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Honor” Rally in Washington, DC in August of that year. He then went into a slump, and since then has failed to hit .300 for two consecutive seasons.

    I sincerely hope that these two events are not independent or coincidental, but truly a result of causation.

    Its obvious that Dumbass Donald believes all pub is good pub. Derek Jeter is one of the classiest dudes to ever play sports, and he down like the warrior that he is. Like the saying goes “It is better to say nothing and be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove a doubt”

    If there were such a thing as Karma Trump would spontaneously combust.
