Mourning a Muslim even Donald could love

Planet Earth lost one of her greats the other day.

Muhammad Ali was one of those rare humans who managed to transcend race and class and religion and politics and become a genuine global icon.

Which he was.

And even though there is a much deeper pool of Trump - Ali connections on view all across the world wide web, it is the Clinton camp that has managed to make political hay from the demise of Muhammed Ali.

So Bill will be giving the eulogy at the funeral of Muhammed Ali.

How sad that the icon of black liberation and resistance will be co-opted into the fold of US exceptionalism.
