(Newser) – NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar had a serious duty at the Democratic convention—to tell the story of American Muslim soldier Humayun SM Khan, who was killed in Iraq—but he couldn't resist a quick dig at Donald Trump upon taking the podium. “Hello, everyone. I’m Michael Jordan, and I'm here with Hillary," he said, per Vox. He then added: “I said that because I know that Donald Trump couldn’t tell the difference.” See his full address here. (Khan's father also addressed the convention and, he, too, also took on Trump.)
