Donald Trump takes shot at LeBron James

Donald Trump

Donald Trump took a shot at LeBron James on Twitter Friday night.

The president tweeted about LeBron being interviewed by CNN’s Don Lemon. Trump called Lemon “the dumbest man on television,” then implied LeBron is dumb.

Where does the aggression towards LeBron come from?

James received publicity during the week for opening his new school in Akron, Ohio. The school includes free uniforms and transportation for students, along with a promise to cover the college tuition for all graduates. The NBA star took Lemon on a tour of the school that was aired on CNN. At one point during their sit-down interview, Lemon asked James about the president, and LeBron essentially said he wouldn’t keep company with Trump.

James openly campaigned for Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential election. He has said he wouldn’t visit the White House if he won a championship due to his opposition to Trump. He name-called the president, too.

Perhaps Trump saw this as his opportunity to finally respond to LeBron. Oh, and as far is the claim that it’s not easy to make LeBron look smart? Just watch this video and see if you tell me otherwise.
