Martina Navratilova Says Trump Team Using 'Textbook Communist BS'

Martina Navratilova, who fled Czechoslovakia and was granted political asylum in the United States at the age of 18, is worried by the early days of the Donald Trump administration.

"The propaganda coming out of Trump, Spicer, Conway et al is textbook communist BS we got growing up," the tennis legend said on Twitter. "The similarity is quite chilling."

Remarkably, despite growing up in a communist country, Navratilova was told by a Trump supporter that she should learn about Communism before commenting on it.

"Please educate yourself on communism. You sound ridiculous to the educated," said one man.

"Am feeling very grateful to all the people who took their time to explain to me what communism is really like. Truly appreciate it," she sarcastically said. "Getting lectured by Trumpists about what communism is really like takes the cake. Not a f--kingclue."

When word broke that President Trump was still repeating his claim about illegal votes costing him the popular vote, Navratilova said: "This is man lies so much it is sickening."

Navratilova has always been vocal about her disdain for Communism and the power structure that compelled her to flee her native Czechoslovakia. She refuses to speak Russian because of the Soviet Union's former control over Eastern Europe.
