Today has been a big day at Trump Tower, which is actually the home of the next President of the United States of America and not the fictional lair of a James Bond villain. As Fox Business Network's helpful TRUMP TOWER WATCH informs us, some notable former NFL players traveled to New York City to pay Trump a visit. Cleveland Browns Hall of Famer Jim Brown, and Baltimore Ravens soon-to-be Hall of Famer Ray Lewis were both escorted up the elevator by none other than Oma-freaking-rosa to meet with the president-elect, apparently to discuss African-American issues.

Earlier in the day, Kanye West met with the future Commander-in-Chief, with Trump saying after the meeting that two were "just friends" and that they talked about "life."

Both Lewis and Brown might seem like strange choices to have pop in, but they have been critical of the Black Lives Matter movement—both going back to the black-on-black well—and Trump is an All Lives Matter man himself.

In 2000, Ray Lewis was charged with two counts of murder before making a deal to testify for the prosecution. He pleaded guilty to misdemeanor obstruction of justice. In 1985 Jim Brown had a rape charge against him dismissed for "inconsistent testimony" due to discrepancies that included "whether Brown fully or partially penetrated her and whether he had tied her hands or forcibly held them."
