Instead of focusing on a multitude of very important and pressing issues, President Donald Trump recently decided to be petty and allude to LeBron James as dumb on Twitter.
It was right after the four-time NBA MVP opened his IPROMISE School in Akron, Ohio that provides students with an education, free transportation, meals, and a college education to University of Akron if they graduate. Just about more philanthropic work Trump has ever done combined.
“Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon,” The Donald tweeted. “He made Lebron look smart, which isn’t easy to do. I like Mike!”
Not only has Michael Jordan since backed LeBron, but even Melania is coming to Bron’s aide. According to The Guardian, the First Lady's spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham released a statement the next day showing support for James.
"It looks like LeBron James is working to do good things on behalf of our next generation and just as she always has, the first lady encourages everyone to have an open dialogue about issues facing children today," the statement read. "As you know, Mrs. Trump has traveled the country and world talking to children about their well-being, healthy living, and the importance of responsible online behavior with her Be Best initiative."
Ooop! How assinie does a tweet have to be about someone that the guy you praise in the tweet and your own wife support the person you racistly slander? Jeez.
