Biden slams WNBA 'pay gap' amid Caitlin Clark salary controversy. But is there one?

Caitlin Clark's WNBA salary has sparked widespread attention — including President Joe Biden's.

“Women in sports continue to push new boundaries and inspire us all. But right now we’re seeing that even if you’re the best, women are not paid their fair share. It’s time that we give our daughters the same opportunities as our sons and ensure women are paid what they deserve,” Biden tweeted on X.

Biden’s tweet followed Clark being selected as the number one overall pick by the Indiana Fever in the 2024 WNBA draft. The star is slated to earn only $76,535 in her rookie season and $338,056 over the subsequent four seasons.

While the disparity between the WNBA and the NBA salaries is clear, Sara Gonzales — unlike Joe Biden — knows why the “pay gap” exists.

“It’s not the fact that nobody watches the freaking WNBA,” Gonzales mocks. “It’s definitely sexism because the president said so.”

While feminists are upset that Clark isn’t being paid what they believe her to be worth, Stu Burguiere notes that the sport itself has never made money, and the addition of one star player won’t make a huge difference.

“This is a league that has never made money, and it’s been around for 26 years. It has lost money every single year it’s been in existence, and it has been subsidized by the boy players every single year it’s been in existence,” Burguiere says.

The WNBA is reportedly making 60 million a season with its TV contracts while the NBA is making 2.7 billion annually.

“If Biden’s saying, ‘Get paid what she deserves’ and ‘We want equal pay,’ they might have to cut her pay a little bit,” Dan Andros adds, agreeing with Gonzales and Burguiere.

Leftists offer up to $200 reward for tips revealing the whereabouts of Supreme Court Justices Alito, Thomas, Kavanaugh, Gorsuch, Barrett, and Roberts

ShutDownDC has posted a tweet offering to pay as much as $200 per tip disclosing the location of Supreme Court Justices Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Amy Coney Barrett, and John Roberts.

"DC Service Industry Workers... If you see Kavanaugh, Alito, Thomas, Gorsuch, Coney Barrett or Roberts DM us with the details! We'll venmo you $50 for a confirmed sighting and $200 if they're still there 30 mins after your message," ShutDownDC tweeted on Friday.

A response to the post accused ShutDownDC of "putting a bounty on Supreme Court Justices heads."

"No, we're putting a bounty on their dinners," ShutDownDC replied.

On Friday, Politico reported that protestors appeared in front of the Morton's restaurant in Washington D.C. on Wednesday, called the manager to tell him to give Kavanaugh the boot, and eventually tweeted that Kavanaugh departed via the back of the establishment. Politico's Daniel Lippman checked into the episode and verified the account, according to the outlet.

Politico linked to a Wednesday tweet from ShutDownDC that said, "We hear Kavanaugh snuck out the back with his security detail. @mortons should be ashamed for welcoming a man who so clearly hates women."

The outlet reported that according to an individual familiar with the matter, Kavanaugh did not see or hear the demonstrators, but had a full meal and departed before dessert.

"Honorable Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh and all of our other patrons at the restaurant were unduly harassed by unruly protestors while eating dinner at our Morton’s restaurant. Politics, regardless of your side or views, should not trample the freedom at play of the right to congregate and eat dinner. There is a time and place for everything. Disturbing the dinner of all of our customers was an act of selfishness and void of decency," a representative for the restaurant chain said, according to Politico.

"No rights for us, no peace for you. Get f[***]ed @mortons," ShutDownDC tweeted.

So far, Twitter has not removed the tweet offering payment to those who provide tips regarding the whereabouts of the six Supreme Court justices.

"We prohibit behavior that encourages others to harass or target specific individuals or groups with abusive behavior," Twitter declares online. "This includes, but is not limited to; calls to target people with abuse or harassment online and behavior that urges offline action such as physical harassment."
