LeBron Says Trump Is Making Hate 'Fashionable Again' in America

King James continues blasting 45.

Published August 16, 2017

LeBron James isn't here for any of Donald Trump's nonsense. Any of it.

For the second time in just a few days, the NBA superstar has blasted the president for his handling of the disturbing white supremacists' terror in Charlottesville, Virginia over the weekend.

Yesterday, King James took to his Twitter account and destroyed the reality TV star turned president, saying, "Hate has always existed in America" and "yes, we know that, but Donald Trump just made it fashionable again!"

This was in reaction to Trump's mind-boggling, contentious speech Tuesday, when he inexplicably tried to reason that "both sides" were responsible for the events in Charlottesville.

LeBron's latest jab at Trump comes a few days after the three-time NBA champ tweeted,"Is this the direction our country is heading? Make America Great Again, huh?"

And King James isn't the only athlete dragging 45 for his insane remarks yesterday. Take a look at these athlete reactions.

  1. LeBron wasn't going to sit back and listen to Trump's inexcusable comments about Charlottesville without weighing in

    Bow down to the King! And he was just warming up.

  2. The NBA superstar further took it to Trump while appearing at an event for his foundation, addressing 45 as the 'so-called president'

    Talk to em, Bron! Salute to the King for continuously speaking up and slamming Trump when he sees fit.

  3. And LeBron wasn't the only one serving up ether to Trump. Peep how former two-time NBA MVP Steve Nash destroyed Trump via this tweet

    Boom! Hard to argue with any of this.

  4. Dodgers' Brandon McCarthy refused to keep silent as well

    If only he could strike Trump out of the White House.

  5. And former NBA players Stephen Jackson and Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf sounded off, too

    “At some point, [Trump] has to be held responsible for some of the language that he was dishing out, as well, in a sense to influence these types of groups,’’ Abdul-Rauf told USA TODAY Sports.

    Jackson added: "At the end of the day, if you’re not against racism, you’re racist. Point blank.’’

    Preach! We're glad athletes are using their respective platforms to speak out against Trump trying to reason that "both sides" were to blame for Charlottesville and his overall mindset and handling of the situation.
